a LAYOUT! with veggies and stuff! oh, and some cards, too!

HAD to do this challenge (how awesome that both Pile It On and Penny's offered the same challenge, to celebrate National Fruits and Veggies Month!) - not only do we eat a LUDICROUS amount of veggies in this household (and, surprisingly, even back in The Son's younger days), but i had these PERFECT photos from summer 1994 that were BEGGING to be scrapped.

so here's my VEGGIE-themed layout for the aforementioned challenges:

the pop-tab from The Son's Red Bull Cola was the perfect ribbon slide (it was the PERFECT red to match the paper!), and i KNEW i'd bought those cute Paperchase stickers for a reason!

wow, these photos are from, like, FOREVER ago. The Son threatened to burn the scrapbook, but i promised never to show his girlfriends. that will change if there's ever a fiancee or a wife! :D

next up, a card for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge (my first time playing along - thanks to my new pallies Nicole and Heather!) - using this sketch:

the reclining fae and the sentiment are from the CTMH Flower Fairy set i'd been DYING to get my hands on, plus flowers stamped from the Happiness set (in CTMH Juniper ink), and the velvet ribbon from their Cranberry Collection. OH! and the Irresistibles - i was SO excited to find some at CKC, i HAD to pick 'em up, even though Mom T and i have an order due in this week and there's a pack in there for me. ;)
here's m'card!

and a close-up - click to enlarge, 'cuz this is a FABULOUS stamp!

the red is a little less RED in person, and the ink is slightly less blue and a bit more green, but i am fighting with my camera today!

then we have this card, with which i'm not terribly happy... i should have gone with my gut instinct to leave it WITHOUT a sentiment, but ya live and learn, right? this one's for the Black, White and one other challenge at Allsorts:

next - for Charisma's challenge (circles) and Colour Create (soft green and light aqua), as well as CAS-tastic's challenge (a touch of green):

(K & Company make my fave brads of all time, and i'm getting TONS of mileage from my new Cosmo Cricket "De-Lovely" mini deck!)

so yeah, i've been busy. mostly trying to keep my mind off stuff, but also determined to use up some supplies. i'm reserving our booth today for the craft fair on the 19th, so i hope i'll have enough stuff to sell, and at least make enough $$$ to pay for the space, and maybe come up ahead.

i'll be back soon though - 'cuz i'm not finished! LOL
