CFC #9 and FTL147 weekend challenges

Hello! Long time - no post! I've been remiss in my blogging duties. BUT --- not in my creative duties! I got to spent some quality time in my "Fortress of Solitude" on Saturday. I finished a layout from my Thursday night Hostess Club, made 2 cards for weekend challenges, and made another layout for my neice's baby album. I feel complete again! I go into withdrawals when I am away from my room for too long.

This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is called "KRAFTS-men". Kraft cardstock projects made with a more masculine theme. I hope mine doesn't seem too girlie. But I also liked the sketch challenge hosted by Clean and Simple Stamping. As soon as I saw it, I thought of my new Jubilation stamp set from the CTMH June stamp-of-the-month. I wanted to try it out, instead of just purchasing it, then sitting it in a neat stack with all my other new & UNUSED stamp sets! (It's embarrasing - I'm not kidding.)

Since I had just been working with the CTMH Fanfare paper kit and it's so close to the 4th, my color scheme was a no-thinker.

TFL and have a fun and safe 4th of July holiday! Pin It
