Use it #5 Life is sweet

Well I did manage to accomplish a couple things last night..

I was way distracted by HOUSE...


I did not see that coming....anyone else watch it?

Anyhooo. enough babbling, this is my take on this week's Use It challenge.

It was to use up a Die Cut, some OLD paper, an Old technique and an item you got on sale recently...... whew that was exhausting (but fun)

Ok so I've had this Wild Asparagus paper for ages, I purge my stash every 6 months but could never part with this, The die cut has been around for about a year, The hearts were heat embossed(old technique) and the sale was the ribbon from Michaels- $1.50 SCORE!!! I love American Crafts ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by.......
