I Collect Dust

OK. so that can be read soooo many different ways. 




My intended meaning was that ~ahem~ some people believe I don't clean often enough.  ~pthtttttttttt~



So, I made this layout for this week's prompt on The Pink Ninjas, "collections".   Like my "dusty" title? 

This month's scrapjacked layout fit just so beautifully with my vision.  I especially loved the masked and misted elements at the bottom of Vanessa's layout.





Edited:  Thank you Christine for letting me know this layout also qualifies for the felt challenge on Practical Scrappers!!!!

I also loved her little bit of extra goodness in the upper right corner. 



This week's Pile It On challenge is to include punches.  I used an EK Success border punch on the picture mat.  And then, I used the punched shapes left over from the border in my upper corner...including some of the little circles!!  Thought they complemented my dust theme nicely.

Details:  Stampin' Up! cardstock and glossy paper; Making Memories paint; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist; Unity Stamp Co. stamp; StazOn ink; EK Success border punch & fibers; American Crafts felt flower & Slick Writer; Prima flowers (used as masks); Wrights trim.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

HA! Heidi, this is too funny! I am not a fan of the vacuum cleaner either, but my initial reaction was "getting old?"... I feel like I should be stuck up on a shelf somewhere to collect dust sometimes. :D
