So. The first July challenge over at Better Living Through Scrapbooking is
“When I Grow Up”
Make a layout or project about what you want to do – what’s your dream job or what career goal are you working toward? If you’re already doing that job, show why you love it.
I could write a novel about all of the jobs I've considered, planned on, and/or worked towards. Did I mention the long list of ones I've done? I worked all of that into this because I think where I'm coming from is as important as where I'm going sometimes... or maybe not and that's just one of those hangups I need to get over... I'll get back to you.

Apron Strings: Old with the Old, In with the New #13
Today's challenge is use your oldest kit with the scariest (to you) embellishment in it and combine it with a new embellishment or paper that has no "scare factor."
GAB #24: Use something you have never or rarely use. Pink. Flowers. Those flowers in particular (my aunt gave them to me 3yrs ago at Christmas I believe.) Chipboard letters. This layout SCREAMS of things I don't usually use. :)
Well, that's a funny thing. The scariest was the flowers- I don't do flowers. I just don't. At least not on layouts since I typically just do ones for my son. The newer, no scare one was SUPPOSED to be the chipboard letters. However, they were dull. I stamped on them. It didn't show. I inked them. They were the wrong color. I embossed them. It didn't show. I ran them through 2 more times. The ink almost vanished. I sanded them for contrast. They started to fall apart. I stopped there though they're still rather dull. Now I think chipboard letters are scary. *sigh*
