Wednesday scrapping...

So...when you get new stash, can you resist it? I can't! I was sitting down to scrap this morning. Reached for some "old" random papers to use. But I couldn't get the "Jack + Abby" papers by Elsie out of my head. The ones that arrived yesterday. So the old papers came off my desk and I reached for my new stash. The result? This layout of my sister and her huge surprise catch in April this year while fishing in Sweden:

Supplies: "Love Elsie - Jack + Abby" patterned paper, tiny and big ribbon packs, cardstock stickers plus epoxy stickers. Apart from that, not much else: staples, Bazzill cardstock, Rhonna Farrer rub-on and some pens. I really loved the cute little tree on the journaling sticker by Elsie. So I got my black Zig Millennium pen and some colouring pencils out and tried to freehand some similar trees on the right side of the layout. How did it turn out? Well I guess I'll leave you to decide that...? I think we all are guilty of failing to see anything good with our own doodles.

I'd almost forgotten to post more pages from the "Learn Something Different Every Day" class by Shimelle wich I'm doing. So here's the next page - from the 7th:

Oh and some Christmas stamps turned up today....

the trees are excellent -- when I first saw your page I thought you had stamped them with Elsie stamp, so you are a clever little thing to get them to match so good . . . . luv the Christmas stamps too !!! Margaret

LOL, "some" christmas stamps? The entire shop is more like it! I'm the same way though, can't just pick one so get them all to have options. It's all about having choice!

I've been bad... not used my bind it all yet, so I guess I can resist new stash. Not usually though, just had less time than normal :(
