This Moment and a RAK

Yet another LO about my favorite subject: Chance.

Paper from Bohemia by MME. I started with a sketch from Pagemaps.

I doodled the lines with a fine point marker and a ruler. Three yellow buttons from Krissy's stash. I had brought my own buttons to crop at her house last night, but none of them were yellow. That corner punch was rescued from the clearance section at HL. I felt a little indulgent when I bought. Surely, I can just cut my own corners by hand... I use that punch ALL THE TIME! Love a good impulse purchase :) It is Paper Studio brand so if you're wondering if those punches are any good I would certainly say yes!

The orange trim and fleur de lis (sp?) lookin' thing are actually leftovers from a border punch. I wish I could remember where I first saw this idea so I could give her credit. The stitched circle is a DCWV rub on. The dimensional bird is a sticker.

Journaling, of course, on a Colorbok tag. I got this set of tags (a nice variety of shapes) from HL. The border punch is Fiskars. The "inspire" brad is K and Co. The owl brad is from Fine and Dandy by MME. The random brown trim was just sitting on my table, leftover from another project. The yellow trim was sitting on Krissy's table so I helped myself :) If you can't take advantage of your friends, then who can you use? Oh, and the letters and quote rub on are 7Gypsies, RAK'd to me by Krissy.


You might have noticed Krissy's name pop up on my blog... um... often. She is such a wonderful and lovable person and I'm so lucky she found me on a scrapbookers dating site, I mean, last year and suggested we get coffee. We've been connected at the hip ever since!

We love to scrap together. When she comes over, I say "take whatever you want!" When I go to her house, she says "take whatever you want!" We both have so much stuff (and we're thankful) so we trade a lot and wonder why we still have so much stuff. I guess neither of us were ever any good at math LOL

First, I'm an English major so, yes, math is something I don't pay much attention to. Second, - BEST scrapbook dating site ever - LOL. Third, this is the sweetest post ever! You can take all the left over ribbon and trim on my scrap table that you want and anything out of my scrap closet (I won't even know it's missing) for your challenge kindness!
