A first

After much deliberating and a knot in my tummy I took the plunge.

Many of you have done it for years but this is a first for me: I cut a tiny strip out of a fresh page of patterned paper!

I had the paperbag kit from Kimmy´s site. (want to see what she´s got in store? click here: ) It´s a way I can afford to have the newest things within my limited budget.

My original plan for this page was some shades of blue (my usual style) but this 3Bugs in a Rug paper had the blue plus the green and red from the background and it took me along a different path. So I shuffled the pics around and ended up with the general scheme of things and had this tiny strip of background paper that looked okeish. What if I added another one of the 3 bugs paper there? Eeeeeerrrr, mmmmmm, that would mean cutting a totally usable background paper. What to do? What to do? For once I did what the big girls do and cut a new paper and put it there.

Added afew bits here and there and some acrylic paint around.

Here it is, something totally different from what I usually do and yet so mine at the same time.- :D

Thanks girls!
That´s an interesting point of view Wendy, making the page go longer. I guess you´ll see lots of scraps of that same pattern in my Layouts. :D
