Happy Scrappy Weekend

I had a chance to take a breath, so to speak, this weekend and do a little bit of scrapbooking just for me, and let me tell you - It.Felt.Wonderful! The first thing I did was work with a wonderful sketch that my scrapbooking friends, AUDREY YEAGER and HEATHER LEOPARD have featured on their blogs. It was created for a month-log blog hop by many of the Sketch Thursdays alumni. And me being me, well...I waited until the very last minute to play with it. But I got it done, and that's got to count for something, right? Right!!! I used Echo Park's Note to Self collection, which I love, love, love! I got the idea for my arrows from Heather's layout. The bottom arrows are stickers that I machine-stitched over, and the top ones are cut from one of the borders. I love the sense of movement they create, and I love the effect layering gave them.
Speaking of layering? How could I NOT layer with all the wonderful goodies in the Note to Self collection!
That's it for today, but be sure to check back tomorrow as I decided to challenge myself with Practical Scrappers. I love a good challenge, don't you?
