TCR #24 and Chipboards

When it comes to the Color Room's palettes, they stretch me in ways and directions that I am not naturally inclined.  However, once I let the palettes take me, I usually am really fond of the results.
I was particularly delighted when I happened up a thread on 2peas about a sketch challenge at Magistical Memories.  I quite adore that sketch, and partly because I know exactly which Fancy Pants chipboard swirls I want to use for that sketch!  Little by little, I'm approaching the end of my FP 12x12 chipboard pieces, I already miss them! :)  This is also my first Webster's Pages layout. Many thanks to Christine for sharing some of her papers with me. This "Foo on Film" is entirely too perfect for this palette! 

I also must mention my punched borders.  Marvy Uchida has sponsored the SRM Stickers DT members with a generous package of their new border punches, and the bubble one you see here is a Marvy punch.  And layered on top of the bubbles is this amazingly gorgeous EK Success scallop punch!  I journaled around the swirls of the chipboard pieces and used some brown SRM stickers for title and accent.  The brown stickers are new as of CHA-summer 2010.  I love that they blend so well into this page that has touches of brown!

Before I go, the winner of the Midnight Rooster Mini-Kit giveaway is Jessy who just happen to have a picture of her pet on her blog right now!  :) If you did not win the Midnight Rooster giveaway, no worries, I know of another huge giveaway, being hosted by my friend Cheese AubreeCheck out her blog for details on the giveaway!  It's a big pile of stuff!!

Good night everyone, tomorrow I am going to work the Graphic 45 booth at Scrapfest!  I think I'm going to be exhausted, but I am so looking forward to it!

Woot Woot! Yay for Dash! I knew he was good for something :) Actually - he's good for lots of things but I didn't know one of those things was winning give aways until now! This could be a way to recoupe some of the costs associated with the furniture, carpet and railings he has destroyed over the years. Hmmm...
