More Create 10

Busy week but managed another Create 10 layout class, again using up scraps. I made the page almost entirely from bits and pieces left over from a class I did last year, which feels good! I even used the printed manufacturer strips to make a small border.

I have to confess that although I'd kept these papers I was not at all keen on the pastel colours, but I am actually quite pleased with the finished layout. This has encouraged me to try ways of using up papers I am not so keen on.

My mission for August is to use up lots of my existing stash, so I am making a rule - no purchases until I've created at least five pieces of work of some kind. Will I stick to it??? Well, I'll try (willpower never was my strong suit).

Love this pic of me and the other half; it makes me feel happy just looking at it (although have no idea what's going on with his hairdo!!!).

Thanks for popping over.
