All sorts of fun

I am working on a patterned paper challenge over at Practical Scrappers. I love pp challenges and can't wait to decide on which pictures to use. I have some wonderful scraps that are from swap that just calling to be used and I know I have scrap pp that would coordinate! For the following, I used My Mind's Eye/Wild Asparagus Pretty Little Girl Dots/Blue Paper, Pretty Little Girl Lace Magnolias/Lavender Paper, two sheets of paper from my stash that have no writing, so no idea what they are :), vivid ink lavender pad, Storybook Cricut Cartridge and a piece of 12" ribbon from my stash. The buttons were from a set of blues that say Tres Joli French Kisses n the bottle. It took some figuring as I only had one sheet each of the two Wild Asparagus papers, something that drives me nuts as I usually buy 2-3 sheets of each type. A few ways to conserve - I cut the center from the 8x10 mat to use to mat the 4x6's, the ribbon was cut after I figured out where to place things so I would have enough for both borders, and the heart border is also cut behind the 8x10. I do have scraps left, but wanted to be sure I didn't run out of paper, so did what I could to conserve.

Also - I just posted a new Unique Item challenge over at Scrapbooking Fun. Can you handle it??? It is a recycling type of challenge - if you buy bread, you probably have what you need to give this challenge a shot!

Photos coming later today!
