You Laugh..

I am playing along with another Centipede challenge from the JBS mercantile forum today.  I'm still a little bummed that I didn't get time to play Calvinball last month, but I am trying to make up for it now..

I made this layout with the 'stamp on text paper' challenge in mind.  Actually, I thought they meant notebook paper at first, so I included this sheet from a new Rifle&Co. notebook, (my new major score from Target). 

I used this sheet of Wren patterned paper that did have text on it, without realizing it was for the challenge.  From there I stenciled the medallions in teal chalk ink and punched some blue patterned paper to sit in the center.  I messy stamped this butterfly + text bookplate stamp over it.  The layers are part of a JBS hodge podge book that I took apart.  I love the old check printed on a transparency. I used vanilla glitter thickers and red JBS letter stickers for the title. 

 I decided to add a few more stamps because I was itching to use my new Ormolu stamp sets - montage and

The ribbon is some old velvet trim I got from my mom's stash. (See? Doesn't that make you feel better about hoarding stuff? Our children may someday find and be enthralled with it!)

I have one last JBS project to share, which I created for the JBS inspiration blog.

I need to get started on my project life layout for last week.  I am no where with "This is Me" yet. Maybe this weekend.  That's all for now. Hope you guys will play along with the JBS centipede challenge too!

1. Take a walk - Our walk around Round Top (why not?)
