I was worried about this challenge. As I wasn't home, so I don't have all my supplies with me.
So I used what I had.
I used the backs of recipe cards (I brought them for daily journaling for my smash book). Inked everything up as I bought one colour of distress ink with me.
I showed you paper packs I had bought earlier in the week, so I used the letters from them.
Here was our challenge.
WEEK 5 - Pieces of Me (layers & paper piecing)
Assignment: Create a spread or a page using layering and paper piecing techniques. Use any stamps you want, colors, etc. Not necessary to use any TGF stamps, this is YOUR journal, do what you want cuz you rule that journal!
I think I did pretty good with the supplies I had on hand. I really believe the less you have the more creative you are...now I believe that, but I don't live that. LOL
I put the letters on the backs of the recipe cards after I inked the cards. Then I tore around the words and put more layers of ink around edges.
1. the papers are layered on top of each other.
2. the stickers and punch out letters are layered on top of the paper.
3. These are the different layer of what makes me who I am.
I was pretty upset during our visit. I am not an expert on animals, but I do know that a large bear should have some water to cool down in when it is hot outside, and no shade. There was a little area around him that looked like water was suppose to be in , but not today. Today it was bone dry.
The other bear was laying flat, down on its side panting like crazy, and this one was sitting on this rock roaring. It was almost as if he was trying to get someone to pay attention to him to help the other one.
I have been to a few zoos and the monkey swing and seem to tease each other. These ones just stayed put not moving to much.
A jail for animals came to mind when seeing this.
I did put my opinions down on paper and sent them in.
I am sorry if I have offended anyone who loves this zoo. But this was my impressions from my one and only visit.
I looked up this scrap booking store before we got here.
It is a beautiful place inside. Lots of room to move around in. Many areas to scrap in.
Lots and lots of product. Plus the layouts they have on display are awesome.
I either had what they had to offer, or they didn't carry the brand or style that I like.
I was surprised that I wasn't greeted when I entered or asked if I needed any help.
Here are the goodies I got from there.
I was happily surprised on the price of the xyron package. You know I love my xyrons :)
I loved this store.
Wayne came in with me. I had my arms full of goodies. Then he tells "Its time to go".
Why I ask. He tells me "When your arms are to full to carry anything else, its time to go. That's the rules".
"Get me a Cart". I tell him. lol.
I can't find that red tape at home. And it is 3 times the price at home if I can find it.
I got some House Mouse stamps. They are so cute.
I also love the Christmas stamp.
Who am I kidding I love them all.
I found a JoAnns beside it :)
Picked up a few Christmas goodies :)
I spotted this purse. I had my eye on it the last time we were at a Target. So I thought I would carry it around for awhile and see if I still wanted it.......well, I carried it right out the door, teehee.
Then Ashley reminded me I had bought a purse at the beginning of our trip.
I usually make my purses. I like to tailor my inside pockets to fit certain things. So I hope I like these ones.
We are heading to Burnsville in the morning. The girls want to go to Burnsville Mall and Mall of America.
That is like our home away from home, lol.
Sad thing is our hotel we always stay at is booked up :(
Hope you all had a creative day, and I will visit your blogs soon, if I haven't already.
