Caardvarks Challenge: Easy as 1,2,3!


The current challenge is to use 1 embellie, 2 patterned papers, and 3 flowers. This was perfect for me since my craft room lately has been a disaster area...worst it has ever been. I usually can't create in such a mess. Clutter makes my crazy. Yesterday my husband had the girls out for a little bit, so I took that time to try to clean it up. I have so many projects going at once right now, and I don't want to put away certain supplies until they are complete, kwim? One major project I started in June is getting our photo albums caught up. I was 2 3/4 years behind! My husband and I developed the photos and sorted them, but I had not placed them in the correct albums. All of this was in the floor! So this is where I started. After putting all the albums away, I moved on to my craft table. I uncovered these American Crafts papers I used in a previous post, with the large decorative brad. I had intended to use the flowers on that original card, but it overpowered it. So I decided on this simple 4 square design, one of my favorites to use scraps. What do you think?
