SISC35: Oh Scrap!

It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge!!! I know what you might be thinking…”But Alison, you’re in Ward 2…and this is Ward 1’s week!” Yes. That’s true. But I wasn’t able to play last week because of my Mother in Law passing away. And even though it has been pretty damn tough to get back into a groove…I really wanted to join the rest of the Groovy Gurlz this week. Pun intended. Ok. So it wasn’t very funny…but cut me some slack!

This week’s challenge is to “create a project with only your leftover bits and strips of paper and bitty pieces of ribbon that you just haven’t been able to part with!  Any scraps will do!”   That’s super easy for me, because that’s what I do 90% of the time anyway!


I used Nicholette…one of my all time fave images from StampInsanity. And all I added besides paper was some Stickles, and a single teeny flower rhinestone on her fabulous top hat.


I love the colors. Super bright and cheery. A real pick me up…which is just what I need right now!


See the dimension of the Stickles and the rhinestone? Looking at the way I colored Nicholette is reminding me of how badly I need to dye my hair! Won’t be pink this time though…I’m going for teal. But I digress…

Please be sure to visit the Groovy Gurlz of Ward 1! Posted on my sidebar. They definitely have some fabulous creations to share with you! Have an inspiring day!
