I was officially well on Monday, but because I had fallen so far behind in everything, it has taken me 2 days to get to my blog. I think I am going to write a blog post dedicated to catching up after you or someone you care for gets sick. It is like falling into a black slack hole and unfortunately, the merry-go-round keeps spinning. If you are hard wired like me, the negative chatter (in my head) that occurs during and after these life lapses can be as miserable (if not worse) than the illness itself. But enough about that... lets talk about craftiness.
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Mix and Match- Use 3 different patterns of paper in a project". As icky as I was feeling, I just had to participate in this challenge. The use of multiple pattern papers in scrapbook layouts is one of my FAVORITE design styles. One of the best multi-pattern-paper scrapbook and Cricut artists I know of is Monique Griffith. She does amazing things with colorful, vibrant, active palettes. Visit her website to see her gorgeous creations!
