{Scrap Fit Work Out #35}

My favorite challenge is one that encourages the use of the stash! Scrap Fit's work out #35 requires one to use what they have, maybe make an embellie and mix up your title. I started with what I had right on the top of my scrap table!! :)

{aidan's PARTY}

{look at that gift bag w/the child's handwriting on the card -- so cute, right?}

I can reach all of my mists without moving from my that's what I did. Starting with a piece of American Crafts white cs, I used Inkadinkdo red spray mist and yellow Glimmer mist. First I traced a bunch of stars, cut them out, and placed them on top of the white cs. Then I sprayed one side of the cs with red and one side with yellow. I handstitched just a few of the stars.

The title is a jenni bowlin die, a Theresa Collins die, some AC thickers & misc. stash brads.

The sub title - "7" is a yellow ticket stamped w/joann fabrics date stamp, and layered with a Tim Holtz grungeboard star - painted and glittered. This is my homemade embellie. :)

Aidan is my baby sister's son. He is a hand-full, let me tell you!! He now plays the drums and he is totally loving it. :)

Thanks for coming by my blog! Thanks to the Scrap Fit girls too for this fun challenge!!
hugs, patti
