Papertrey Ink Play time!


Yesterday I was feeling a little under the weather... sore throat, chills, headache... you know the drill,  t'is the season I suppose.  Anyway, I decided to treat myself to an afternoon of scrap therapy.  I had nothing really on my to do list, that really needed doing so I got to play just for the sake of playing, how nice is that!

First up, I wanted to alter the front of this 7 1/2" x 9 1/2" coil bound notebook.  For anyone that knows me, they know I am constantly making notes, lists etc.  I can't seem to function without a to do list!  There were only 2 things I knew for sure, one being that i wanted to try out my new Papertrey Ink stamps and dies, and the second was that I wanted to use pink so my notebook coordinated somewhat with my daytimer (hmmmm, note to self,alter daytimer, ha!). So I pulled out some leftover MME Alphabet Soup and this is what I came up with....

 I had a little trouble lining up the stamp with the die, if you are a regular reader you'll know that I have crappy vision.  But hopefully with a little practice I will get better.

Still feeling in the mood to play, i decided to make a card.....

 I am loving how girly it is.

I had a few more minutes before I had to leave to pick Timmy up from the school bus stop, so I whipped up another quicky...

I was feeling like making little handmade paper candles.  I saw them for sale somewhere and thought, well I can make those.  Too easy and so fun!

And the best part of all was, when I woke up this morning I was feeling sooo much better.  Scrap therapy really works!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you treat yourself to some scrap therapy soon, it's good for what ails you.
