I just love the Cherish and Imagine scrap-booking programs! They make my scrap-booking so uncomplicated. I used some of my leftover retired papers to create this simple layout. The Outdoor Denim is actually a B&T paper (background and texture) and I used Barn Red card stock as my mattes and accents along with a smattering of Bamboo card stock. I used the Rustic Alphabet in Outdoor Denim for the titles and distressed the Barn Red card stock with some 2nd generation random stamping using the same stamps. 2nd generation just means that after I ink up the stamp, I stamp it first on scrap paper before I stamp it onto the project. That way it leaves just a shadow of the image instead of a dark stamp.
Contact me if you have any questions about any of the things above.

My favorite things in the world are a showery day, a warm cup of cider, a great idea and an empty notepad, or two or three - heck, just get me a whole case of the suckers, the pink ones! :) When my mom challenged me to do what I loved, I reclaimed my desire to write and can't stand to go a day, now, without spending some time with a pen in my hand. I'm not sure where God is leading me on this journey, but I asked Him to give me the desires of my heart and trust that He has for a purpose.
