Story Telling

I spent a little time yesterday creating with more Crate Storyteller from My Scrapbook Nook's April Kit.  Danni, had a Card Challenge for us this week.  There's a new Card Challenge, over at the Nook every week in fact.  This one was to create an unconventional banner on a card.  I hand cut a couple of these pieces, and simply covered tags or tickets to make the others.  That "Hello" sticker was just screaming to be used on a card.  You should see what some of the others came up with, there are some really wonderful creations in the Forum Thread.

Stacey had a layout based challenge for us .  Her April Colour Challenge had a few requirements to it.  We had to scrap about an everyday activity, include journaling, and use some sort of natural texture.
The jewelery cord is from my stash, and the reinsforcements are from the Nook Dec kit featuring the Crate Peppermint line, the mist is Studio Calico Green Apple.
I realize produce is not an "activity", but it is something that is consumed daily in our home, so I figured that was kind of the same thing.  The journaling says "Fresh produce, something I often take for granted".  I kicked myself for having adhered the double sided dimensional tape before realizing I had not put the tag through my typewriter.  It could have looked so much better.  At least it's legible.  Another reminder that perfection is overrated.

Welcome to the weekend friends.  I wish you laughter, and plenty of time to enjoy the poeple around you over the next two days.  Hope it's a good one!
