Inspired by Elsie Flannigan's 52 Scrapbook Challenges #12 "Scraplift a LO Shape". I basically was copying the starburst shape and the small words in the "rays". Oh and the buttons....I LOVE the buttons.

One thing I have been admiring in the scrap world are people who are not afraid to use lots of stuff. I used to try and conserve items, but USE IT!!! it is a great excuse to buy more stuff to play with.

I was able to escape to Mardi Gras this weekend. This was my first adult time out since Tate was born and a great time was had by all. Here I am with my friends, Sara and Stacy. Paul stayed home with Tate since he has been the last 2 years.

Oooh Mardi Gras! Killer! I've always wanted to go. And nice scraplift. Way to use your stuff up. I used to hoard. Now as soon as I buy it, I use it. Otherwise I try to save it for the "perfect" page and then after a few months I no longer like it anymore.
