ScrapHappy 30-Minute Thursday 4-17-08

For a while I have been admiring Lain Ehmann's 30-minute Thursday challenge but have not yet participated. So, may I present my first ScrapHappy 30-minute Thursday Layout:

All goodies CTMH except as noted.
Colors: Olive, Hollyhock, Autumn Terracotta, Buttercup, Sweet Leaf, Barn Red
My Acrylix Stamps: Tiny Typewriter Alphabet
Font: CTMH Girlfriend
Embellies: 3/8" Ric Rac Ribbon, Clear Buttons, Craft Buttons, Just Blooms, Paper Flower (Bazzill 3 Gerbera Candle), Brad (Bazzill Mono Trio Haley 10 mm)
Stamp: Autumn Leaves Journal Parentheses

Last week as I was leaving COSTCO with my mom, I noticed a huge table full of gerbera daisies. Knowing that I would probably kill it, I declined a purchase and snapped a couple photos instead. This challenge was a great opportunity to use these pics.

You'll notice I even used the photos under the clear buttons! I just adhered them with CTMH Liquid Glass (yep, it works like a glue, too!) then, after it dried, I trimmed around the buttons with my handy-dandy micro-tip scissors.

Incidentally, those scissors were the catalyst for becoming a CTMH consultant. If you have been to one of my gatherings, you know the deal-ee-oh. Anyway, why on earth I am posting at 2:45 a.m. and not sleeping is beyond me. I think I took advantage of my 6th wind.

Coming up tomorrow, er, um, I mean when the sun rises... Mojo Monday Challenge!
