The First W2SB Challenge of 2015
So, can you believe Words 2 Scrap By is one year old today?! My sincerest thanks to all of you who made Year #1 possible.
The first W2SB challenge of 2015 is the social-media-inspired-hashtag #youchoosetheword(s). The seeds for my cards's hashtag were sown at last May's Simon Says Stamp event. When making a collage with Tim Holtz, we were instructed to use his chit chat words to create a phrase for our collage. The phrase Create the Life You Want popped in my head. When I retired in August, this phrase felt like the perfect motto for this next phase.

The card above is actually a combination card and bookmark. The # strip on the right can be torn off and used as a bookmark. I used one of three settings on an American Craft trimmer to create the perforation.
And, what's a bookmark without a ribbon, right?! I used a yummy ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, the sponsor of this month's W2SB prize to add a little sparkle to the top of the bookmark. Thanks again, Bonnie! And, what's a bookmark without a ribbon, right?!
- Traveling, and
- Embracing Friends.
Finally, hubby and I left this card for our mail carrier yesterday. TODAY is Patsy's very first day of retired life. We wish her all the best -- a life filled with all of her favorite things. :)
Hope you join us for our January hashtag challenge at Words 2 Scrap By.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'! Have an year filled with all of your favorite things. :)
