When I saw the new challenge up at Scrapfit - I cringed. Only cardstock?! No patterned paper!? I'm the patterned paper queen! I have enough to wallpaper all the houses on my street. Wouldn't that be fun and colorful? I regress, no patterned paper. I didn't think I could do that one.
Fast forward 3 days later, I'm looking through my stash to find some doggie themed papers for a layout I want to do of Jax. I decide to use one of these cool journaling boxes from Bo Bunny's Pet Shop line. I keep digging, but unfortunately I can not find any of the coordinating papers. I even searched online where I could pick up a few sheets. I certainly couldn't let these go to waste! Then it hit me, use just cardstock with them. So I dug out some orange, blue, brown, and green for the base. I love the result!
As long as my die cut sheet doesn't count as patterned paper, I think I pulled it off :) And I *love* these pics of Jax at the top of the steps, staring down at me. He is sulking that I'm leaving for work. LOL!
