Proud of You.

Hello and good morning...

I'm up over on the My Scraps & More blog today.
One thing that was pretty popular a few years back was to use colorful cardstock for your background base. I remember I would take papers to my LSS and try to find the perfect shade of cardstock to match my papers. I have soooo much colored cardstock in my stash, I know I will never be able to use it all. I pull it our for the kid's projects, but not too much often than that.

So my challenge for the stash daily challenge: is to use some color cardstock on your base of your layout, no kraft, white or black- which as my go to's...
I used some green that went along with the papers from the  Fancy Pants Memories Captured collection
I loved the fun circles from the Panorama paper and fussy cut out several of them and added them across the page:
I mixed the star papers and added the woodgrain paper for some additional green through the page:
Make sure to check out the Fancy Pants Memories Captured line in the My Scraps store....

I used the Sketches in Thyme sketch #119.
Have a wonderful day.


  1. Gorgeous!! You rocked the cardstock background! LOVING the colors, the layers and all the circles!!

  2. Great challenge! I have so much cardstock:) Fab LO too!

  3. Isn't that funny how that changed and we are left with stacks and stacks of paper? I too have more cardstock than I will ever need, except when I do need it and still don't have the perfect shade ;) Awesome page.

  4. I still use colored cardstock and did a page last night! I love the fussy cut circles, they are awesome!

  5. This is awesome! Love the design and colours.

  6. Love, love, love this Wendi! I have a hard time using colored cardstock on my layouts anymore. It's crazy because that's all I used to use back in the day! It works fabulously on your layout with your patterns. Love the circles!

  7. Love all your circles Wendi and you rocked this FP line!

  8. I still used colored cardstock and love it! Must be the 80's girl in me that loves all that color.
    This is a super layout, great design and a happy photo!

  9. Fabulous guy page!! Love the repeated circles!! ~ Blessings, Tracey
