And welcome to my desk this Wednesday, hosted by Playschool. Hehe. Not really, but I've a lot of toys on my desk today. The Chipmunks have joined me officially now for my scrapping, Alvin and Theodore arriving just today. Simon has been here since the eleventh and I LOVE him being here. My Little Ponies have also joined me. I'm going to attempt to fashion them helmets and armour so they look like they're warriors in the game Skyrim. It has been drawn a lot, but it's also been done in real life, so I'm excited to try. I used to be good at sculpting when I was a kid, so I'm hoping my skills haven't atrophied. You can see the decapitated Fluttershy bottom right.
On my desk proper you can see I'm in the middle of a layout. Lots of matting, the coordinating die cuts, and a little journalling spot, and I called it good. Yes, this is about as much mess as I make.
Here's the final layout, all pretty and whatnot. Figured I'd post it here so everyone could see it properly.
And now I need you guys to congratulate me. I used up a whole paper collection! I had one tiny 2 inch piece left over after doing this layout and the one previous and I've officially used up all of this MME Holly Jolly collection. Yay! I'm totally hoping to use up as much paper as I can this year, thin out the herd as it were, so this makes me way excited. I have SO much paper, not as much as some, but I really need to get it under control. I've also had my lovely husband change my Paypal password to try to curb my random spending. The Scrapbook Expo is Feb 25th and I'm going to do *everything* I can to not buy anything until then. I have PLENTY to play with, I need to use what I have, and THIS is the first step! One collection down.... maybe 50 more to go.
Thanks everyone for stopping by, and thanks Julia for hosting such a fun little adventure. Can't wait to see what y'all are up to!
