Been Scrapping...

This past week I did a few pages with my January Mosh Posh kit. I loved this kit! Blue and green are my favorite colors (these particular shades of blue and green are great together) and lately I've been having a lot of fun using black accents on my pages, so I was psyched when this kit arrived on my doorstep.
Anyways, the first page design was lifted from Kelly Bryan's LO in the Mosh Posh DT Gallery. The second page was inspired by a technique I've seen where strips of ribbon or patterned paper are used to create a sort of sunburst pattern around the photo. It's something I always wanted to try because my ribbon collection is getting out of hand! I was glad to use some of it up!
I'm really trying to loosen up when I scrap and not be so precious with my supplies. I'm bad about agonizing over cutting up papers and using things up, but now my stash is growing so big that I realize that's what I bought it for: to use it. Duh! I know it seems so simple, but I have to let go of the fear that I'll mess up or waste and just go with the flow. Sometimes mistakes can turn out to be a good thing in the end! Right?

brook, I LOVE these pages. You really did an awesome job. I totally know what you mean about not wanting to use your stuff. Especially those wonderful Mosh Posh kits.
