Get Your Scrap On!

Supplies: Cardstock is Bazzill. Patterned paper is Japanese Origami paper. Title is American Crafts rub-ons. Misc brads. Bamboo Stamped image is by Delta Creative. Japanese stamp sticker is ProvoCraft. Ink us Palette Burnt Umber.

This layout was done for the new challenge at Get Your Scrap On! which is a fun new challenge site - go check it out and let them know I sent you! The challenge was to scrap some pictures from a trip. I picked these ones of my mum's visit to come and see me when I was living in Japan because she just recently found the card on the layout and gave it to me.

It was really hard seeing her go after her being there for about a month. When she left, I gave her the card. I made a pocket for it on my layout and scanned the inside and that's what's on the front of the pocket with the card in it! The bottom funny picture of me was on the back of the card and was taken from the main floor of my apartment in Japan looking up towards me in my "loft", which is Japan means barely enough room to sleep and sit up!

Well, I'm off to work here in just a bit, so I'd better run! It should be fun because it's the first crop in the new store and it's a full house tonight I think!

Cheers,
