PDCC78 - Market Street Stamps

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Welcome to The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #78!
Our sponsor for this week is Market Street Stamps with a prize of a $30 gift certificate up for grabs for one lucky winner!  Now, how much fun would that be to spend?!
Here's my bit of inspiration.
I started this page with that fantabulous (Yes, I made up another word.), patterned, paper base.  I just couldn't bring myself to cover any more of it than what my pics, title, and few embellishments did.  Yummy!  I did add a red, zig-zag, die-cut strip across the top edge to cover a bit of orange in the original page.  It just wasn't working for me, but now, I love it to pieces!
My "willing away the WINTER weather" title was created from sticker and wood alphas.  The "away" and "weather" words were anchored with messy, pink-threaded, straight stitches, tied in knots at their ends, and the "N" in "WINTER" had a length of Baker's Twine wrapped around its left side and tied in a bow.
I was so excited to put my new cloud punch to work with that scrumptious, light blue, polka dot, patterned paper.  A few pink-threaded stitches, whose ends were again tied in knots to the front of the layout, were machine stitched around their edges; and a trio of Cricut-cut, from Pink Pirouette cardstock, and glittered snowflakes gussy up the page.
The triple-stamped "MAR 02 2010" date makes this page album ready.
Now, off you go to check out all the other beauties, created, just for you, by the rest of the design team.  Then, run get scrappy, because I'd love to see what ya'll create with this playful color story Julie Ranae has cooked up for us!  You have until Tuesday, April 26, 2011, at 11:59 pm EST, to link up your entries.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a terrific Thursday, ya'll!
