Creative Thursday ~ Dots and Stripes at SOS

Another fun challenge is up at Scrap Our Stash! Dots and stripes, birds, butterflies and bees! There are some really cute projects already up over there, so be sure to check out Dots and Stripes to see them all. Here's my layout.

Legos by Lindsey Krauss. Supplies: Paper: Love, Elsie (Toby Go & Claire Powder Puff), Pink Paislee; other; Artisan tape: Pink Paislee; Rub-ons: Crate Paper, Inc.; Letters: VivAmerica, Making Memories; Markers: Sharpie; Other: chipboard button, large butterfly, paper words, ribbon.

Journaling: McKenna, you got this Lego set for your birthday and you were done with it, with very  little help, in just minutes. Maybe it was all those times watching your brother, but you were so proud when you were done, you, too, now have a Lego city in your bedroom.
Dots and stripes! I know, for being such a fan of polka dots, I used remarkably very few. And since the pink paper was so lightly striped, I played with striping in the overall design. I also fought tooth and nail to keep bugs and birds out of my stash so long ago, so I had to look long and hard for some! Imagine my surprise, to come across those perfect Crate Paper butterflies after the layout had been laid out and adhered! The rest is just more stash - rub-ons, some punch-outs, even a chipboard button and its holes. The paper and rub-ons clearly didn't come together, but I love the way they go together.

Truly, I have very few animals in my stash. So I was so pleasantly surprised to find not only green and pink butterflies, but pink and white polka dot rub-ons as well. The rest is just some things I found while fumbling around in my color-coordinated storage. On the right side is a Making Memories sticker (remember those huge monogram letter stickers?) - I cut it so it was an "l", but I love the way it blends in with the green on and around it. The two small green dots in the cluster are, indeed, the holes in the heart button. The purple ribbon was just a tiny scrap I found in my ribbon bucket. I'm not sure who made those word punch-outs (My Mind's Eye?), but they went well on the page, uncut and untouched. Same with the background page; the arrows were busy enough so that paper went untreated as well.

WOW that legos word really jumps on your page and I love the contrast of the pink and green papers. Thanks for coming by my blog.
