Wow, what a Fiska-fabulous weekend! The Fiskateers hosted an online crop and the challenges were flying at fever pitch. The message board was hopping, the gallery was popping and the chat room was, well, chatty. The crop started mid morning on Friday and the majority of the challenges were due by Saturday, 10 pm CST. I spent most of my free time on Sunday commenting on my fellow Fiskateer’s lovely projects. Here's one of mine.

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.

  1. I can totally relate to that whole "sacred" product thing! I end up holding on to special papers and other goodies till I tell myself that it's okay to use up the really great stuff because once you use up that really great stuff, you'll inevitably find more really cool stuff that you'll feel just as conflicted about using. :)

    It's hard not to feel frozen over such cool papers sometimes, like nothing you do with it will be good enough, but you did a great job creating a layout that will be one you will likely want to look at many times over the years and every time, you will love seeing that paper. :)
