Hot Off the Press-Masculine Collage

Good Evening, just been a lazy Sunday for me, but a good one too. Watched some TV, went for a walk which is scary as it is so very icy around here. Stopped by the garage as hubby/friend were working on a engine, not like I know a thing about that, but still it was a nice sunny warm day to be outside. I just got the lazyes today is all. After supper talked to my sister and then thought I should come and make a card, well here we go, not that I know of, but I am sure are some challenges out there, maybe I should go look for one or two. I bought this stamp set at the LSS yesterday, I feel in love with it, not sure why, it isn't something I normally pick, not cutesy or anything, but I was drawn to it. Then I thought what could I make with it, hope you like what I did.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember tomorrow is Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo #87 coming out, it is a good one. Enjoy your evening!

Scrapbook Layout

Another installment of my last September's trip to BC. It was amazing to see all the different places on the island.
Thanks for stopping by.

This has been a fun album as I never made a 8 1/2 x 11 before. But so far it is going okay. I am using the Lilac House Pattern Paper from Fancy Pants. So cool all the different colors and shades in it. I use some vanilla ribbon, brads, prima flowers(which I just love), and leaves. So bling, and I used the border punch for a bit extra . Thanks again for stopping by.
