Why am I up so early on a Saturday???

UGH! Don't you hate it when you can sleep in, but you wake up anyway???

Just a quickie post today, as I have a to-do list a MILE LONG! BLAH! But I was a real slacker this week on the household chores...

This page came together pretty fast. I was flipping thru an old issue of Simple Scrapbooks, and saw a similar paper layout. I loved the paper strips - a great way to use up your scraps! Well...I don't have any scraps, since I haven't paper scrapped in about a hundred years, lol. And with digi scrappin, THERE ARE NO SCRAPS! That is what I love about it - NO MUSS, NO FUSS, NO CLEAN UP! And all my pattern papers are intact, even though I use them over and over.

With photoshop - you can easily just "cut out" some strips and then "drag" each one over to your layout. I, of course, was cutting each one individually, until I realized I only needed ONE from each sheet, and then I could COPY that layer to a NEW LAYER. DUH!

I am loving this shabby color combo too - this kit is the Gold Membership kit for July over at DigiShopTalk - Summer Cottage by Shabby Princess. It's an exclusive, just for members, but I went ahead and joined, since I love all the designers that are coming up too - I'm sure the free kits will be FABULOUS! Here's a preview of the Summer Cottage kit:


Have a great Saturday!
