I feel like talking really fast...

After watching 12 episodes of Gilmore Girls (the last season, most of which I have not seen yet) with my mom over the past two days, I find my mind constantly moving at a quick pace and myself making random quips at sonic speed. It's great. :) Oh, Gilmore Girls.

I've been sewing up a storm here- I felt like every layout just needed that finishing touch. Here's the first one that I finished just yesterday:
Isn't it cute? I'm obsessed with distressing edges this week :)

Supplies: Patterned Paper- American Crafts, Cardstock- American Crafts (purple) and The paper Studio (black and white), Ink- Stazon by Tsukineko, Letter Stickers- Making Memories (small) and American Crafts (Chit Chat White Thickers), Floss- DMC, Acrylic Butterfly- Heidi Swapp

And here's Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #46 for this week:
Inspiration:
And my take:
How's that for different? Ha. I only used three supplies: Cardstock- The Paper Studio, Letter Stickers- Making Memories, and Embroidery Thread- DMC. I like this for a change of pace from my usual cardstock + patterned paper deal. What do you think?

Oh, and one more thing:
My obsession with paper flower instruction continues. Check out this tutorial by Suzanne Woolcott. It's so informative- I've got to try this.

Oooh and this dress is really cute:

Thanks for stopping by today! It's back to college for me in a couple days, but with all of these creative juices flowing, I'm hoping I'll stil have plenty to share with you in the upcoming weeks.

Love.

Brit

your card is beautiful but I also felt the need to comment because my mom and I did the exact same thing - every week we were obsessed with watching Gilmore Girls, it was a great bonding experience ...and I always felt like talking faster too! lol! What a great show, too bad there aren't any more new episodes!
