We’re at war

We’re at war at my local scrapbook store, Scrap Tales in Brighton.

Scrap Wars began Sunday with a draft party to determine teams. The competition will include challenges throughout the summer, with customers, friends and family members voting for their favorite pages.  The women in this war are both fierce and talented, so I am sure the designs will be amazing.

Our first order was to create a 12×12 page using papers and embellishments from the new So Sophie line by My Mind’s Eye. The colors — blue, green and brown in floral and geometric prints — make it so easy to apply to almost any page. Personally, I was inspired by the “Simple Things” embellishment and the circle/floral print. I decided to show some of the things that bring me so much enjoyment in life.

Here is my entry:

I covered the photo of me with a printed transparency that matches the line.

I wanted to include one of Tim Holtz’s watch faces to help support the 24/7 theme of the page. It was my husband’s idea to set the time to 5:00, because it’s “always 5 o’clock somewhere.”

Obviously I am still amused by his sense of humor!
