Swimsuit Thief

Supplies : Paper - My Minds Eye, Scenic Route, and unknown (RAKed 6x6 piece); cardstock and white ricrac by CTMH; Flowers by Prima; glazed brads by Imaginescence and Basic Grey; Other ribbon from LSS; glitter flower centers unknown from craft store; remarks letter stickers by American Crafts; glitter letter stickers by Urban Bling;

This last week I thought I might do some scrap purging. When I make layouts I tend to cut into full papers, then I plan on using the scraps for cards. Some of the bigger pieces end up in other layouts but most of the time the scrap pile just keeps getting larger and larger. So I thought maybe I could match up some scrap pieces then find some pictures to go with them, you know to whittle down my ever growing Mount Scrap. The green dot and blue flourish paper I paired together on some breeze cardstock and then I searched for some pictures to go with it. Once I found the pictures I flipped through my scraps again to see if there were any more coordinating papers to help complete the layout and this bird scrap fit perfectly with the colors. I didn't even have to cut any of the scraps, just position them on the layout. These pics are of Audrey stealing Cait's swimsuit while hers was in the washer. That girl seriously lived in her 'soup' (what she called her swim suit) last year. And when she couldn't have hers, she got Cait's! Enjoy and have a fun Monday!
