As Far As I Can Tell...



Happy Friday Friends With Flair Unity Stamp Company fans!!

OK, I am officially OBSESSED with the camera stamp from the August KOTM.  It's made it's way onto another layout:



(You can click on the pic above to see a larger image.)

I made this layout with two challenges in mind.  First, the prompt on Category Stories "As Far As I Can Tell...". 




I'm pretty proud of my machine-stitched swirl.  I'm getting better at curves.  And, you can see in the pic above my favorite element on the whole layout...I was going for a school papers look so I stapled a piece of random paper to the upper left corner and then ripped off said paper leaving a little fragment...doesn't this always happen??!!  LOL

I also made this layout for the challenge on ScrapFIT:  no peeps and you must include some Cosmo Cricket because they're the prize sponsor for this challenge!  After giving away our own fair share of fabulous CC kits on Sketchy Thursdays these past couple weeks I would LOVE to win some of my own!!! 



Being the proud momma of a 6-y-o boy, my house is OVERRUN with all manner of action heroes and Lego people.  And, I wasn't just saying it for my layout title...I am pretty sure they're all plotting something.  Something quite disconcerting to happen upon little gatherings of figures in random locales throughout the house.  (Don't get me started on what I think my daughter's dolls are doing...)

Details:  Stamps:  Unity Stamp Co., Technique Tuesday; StazOn ink; Cosmo Cricket paper; Heidi Swapp tapes; Making Memories alpha stickers; thread, masking tape.

Another Unity layout made earlier this week you may have missed:

Have a great Friday!!

Oh crap, of all times I didn't use CC, I think I didn't use it for my scrapfit challenge! Ugh!!!! What a dork! I love yours though, so cool! I love the lettering on the photo. I did a page about Nate's Army men once for VP. Those little guys really are cool to use on LOs. Great job, as always!
