We were challenged to create a scrapbook layout, card or other project using a “sacred” paper or embellishment. You know, that paper that you fell in love with at the store, just had to have and then were too taken with it to use? That’s my background paper! I just love the soft, warm tones and the subtle paisley and floral pattern. It’s Terra Cotta Paisley from the Sonnets Studios line from Creative Imaginations, LLC. The bird is from Prima and the brads are Spare Parts. Photos are from a trip I took to New York City in 2007.
Cropping and sharing the creativity with my Fiskateer friends is always special. Click the Fiskateer blinkie on the right for more details about this super group.

This double layout is from a trip to Washington, DC. I stumbled upon this lovely garden while walking The Mall from The Smithsonian Castle to The Air and Space Museum. When I saw the pocket garden with its cute little birdhouses, I knew I had to stop and see what else it had to offer. I didn’t know if I would ever have a chance to visit again, so I thought "Why not now?"
I used Paper Reflections patterned paper. The paisley embellishment squares were punched with the Fiskars Comma Comma Chameleon squeeze punch and edged with Stickles. The circular spirals are Colorbok Sticky Stitches. The folded ribbon (unknown source) is just stapled onto a square of the patterned paper.
Note to self for lone sightseeing jaunts: Improve the long arm, self portrait photo technique or just start asking all those other charming tourists you end up chatting with to take your picture.

Provo Craft patterned paper from the scrap bin, a little ink, some chipboard flowers and a bit of acrylic paint were used on these. The flower stems are Martha Stewart Happy Birthday ribbon. I added a little self adhesive pearl to one and the other has a pearl and metal brad from Déjà Views.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. Comments appreciated.
