Christine says, KAYA!

OH NO!!! After reading about this month's challenge, I got stumped! Layering? Not for me! So I thought, oh boy, I'm gonna be in deep s__t this time! YIKES! I tried to search high and low for a sketch that could work, and bless the internet, I managed to find one by Catherine Grand-Perret. Thank you, thank you for saving my a__! :D

I had fun doing this challenge - thank you, Cabbie! :)

Put this boy in front of a TV and he will be quiet for hours on end. YIKES! 4/07

About ME:
Married, with 2 kids - DD 7 and DS 4, part-time lecturer on restaurant operations. I have been scrapping on and off since 1984 using non-archival safe products (because I thought the acid-free stuff around that time looked cheesy, haha). I converted to the "other side" in 2006 when I saw gorgeous acid-free papers and other supplies. I've also dabbled in other crafts such as cross-stitching and candle-making.

If I weren't looking at this with my own two eyes, I'd say simple scrapbooking and MANY patterned papers don't mix. But you did it. You kept up with the challenge yest still kept your own style.
