MME Ooh La La for her & LOTD at CMK - 5 Aug 09


Thanks to Carrie at CMK for making it her pick ! lol

------------------------------------------

No reason being a frugal scrapper actually over here ,
with the amount of stash we have ,
yet we can't help it -;-)
I used a cardboard backing from somewhere -
thicker than normal cardstock too,
& recycled a strip of the various patterns of the Ooh La La collection -
it was easy to readily show the many patterns
of this sweet line at one go.

I also used up as many die cuts from the collection as I could here
& for the circle portion of the sketch
i used my handy dandy paper doily as a mask
with Glimmer Mist.

I am loving using Ali Edwards's stamp -
from the Favorite Memories set
in place of my usual handwritten journaling

August Pagemaps sketch by Becky Fleck was my design guide.

oh la la :) I just posted an Oh la la project as well. I don't think anyone is selling that state side yet!
lovely layout, love all the elements. strips of paper is actually signs of extravagance and stash reduction, you had to cut into every sheet, didn't you? That's stash reduction! LOL. good job!

Beautiful layout Pearl - you make me wanna buy that Ali Edwards stamp! :)
Btw, for some reason, since Jan this year, I couldn't get into CMK website - it shows a "forbidden error" message. Do you happen to know why? Last year and the year before I didn't have problems, but suddenly out of the blue, I couldn't get in. Weird.
Thanks so much and take care!!

Hi there, Pearl! Hope you're doing well, my friend!
Love your gorgeous page. I am always a big fan of the kraft colored background, and love the bright strips of pretty papers with it. Also digging that masking on here. Congrats on making LOTD at CMK!
