Got washi?

I know that we all have washi tape. Come on admit it!! Yes I have lots and forget to use it so the latest topping option at Seize the Birthday was a perfect reminder to play with it.

I made my rosette by adding red polka dot washi to a strip of white cardstock.

Cardstock: A.C., Wplus9
PP: Teresa Collins
Washi: Queen & Co.
Stamp: Wplus9
Die: MFT
Ink: Versafine
Punch: EK
Other: button, crochet twine, score board
I got the fabulous 6x6 Teresa Collins "Something Wonderful" paper pad from The Paper Trail.
So come on and pull out your stash of washi and play along with us at Seize The Birthday! Can't wait to see how you use your washi.
Oh I forgot to mention that I used the sketch at Mojo Monday!

Hello Summer

Unfortunately summer is done here but I can scrap about it right?!

To scrap this photo of Ryan and Evan to include in the calendar I am making I used a current sketch from Boys Rule.
Such a fun sketch. I used some product from Simple Stories and scraps of other papers. Love when I can use bits and pieces!
