Using up Scraps

Supplies: papers & xoxo tag from My Mind's Eye;
doily from Wilton; button from Basic Grey; bamboo thread;
stickers (owls, polka-dot border, corners) from Fancy Pants

Supplies: animal tower from Pink Cat Studio;
stamped with Palette Noir & coloured with markers;
pig watercoloured with Worn Lipstick distress ink;
animals coated with Stampendous Fun Flock;
sentiment stamp from Kaisercraft; yellow embroidery floss;
papers & button from Basic Grey "Sugar Rush"

Every once in a while I get annoyed with myself for hoarding scraps of paper - especially Basic Grey paper! I tend to end up with the covers of a pad & a stack of strips, and then they stay there in the drawer, mocking me! Last week I made several scrap-stash-buster cards, and here's a couple of them. The owls card additionally finished off the sticker sheet - bonus - since of course you can't throw out a sticker sheet that has a single corner piece left, or 1.5 inches of border....well, you can't if you're me, anyway.

Riley's birthday is tomorrow - my baby is going to be 11 years old. *sniff* Both kids want to see "Rio," and it opens tomorrow, so Riley decided that's what he wants to do for his birthday. Just from watching the preview they've both started saying "AWKWARD" all the time :)
