& I'm back! yay! I made it home, finally, after a long day at work. My feet hurt. I wish I could write off my shoes on my taxes, cus I have never gone through so many pairs in my life! & to think I am trying to stay in the profession :sigh:...
Oh, you definately have to try this milk. It's the weirdest thing, and I had to bring it home because, well, it's Red Velvet Milk. Funky huh? I bought it @ Target, and I think it's one of their brands. It's sorta chocolatey, like red velvet, and I can definately feel the cream cheese icing undertones. Just try it... O.k., enough yammering, on to the LO's!
The idea for the background came from me not wanting to distract too much of the background with crazy patterns. I do love negative space, too much at times. But like I mentioned earlier, I don't know how to make all those papers work, atleast not for my style. Well the patterned paper was mimicking loose leaf, lined paper. So I just tore up some pieces and used it to cut some of the white from the back cardstock.
Well, I hope that was entertaining for you all (maybe not those 2 last lines up there...) I'll keep you updated on anything else I create.

On to the Layouts!
This is my favorite! I will be mentioning scrapbook.com a lot. Mostly because I do the most LO's with the challenges. & again I have the no patterned paper challenge. I took a 9x9 plain cardstock (an icky scrap) and made a collage of ripped papers. No particular order, just ripped and glued down. I did do one color at a time, to ensure I used all my colors and wasn't putting them all in the same places. I used a range of yellows and oranges, pink and green.
Oh, and this LO is called "a Rose, to mark an Honoree". I was given an award earlier this year, a distinction award at work. So they gave us roses, and I was feeling all artsy when I got home...
This is just a close up of the flower I cut out. I made some polka dots to make the petals match...
