Deck of Me and Bam Popping Away

Here is my latest card for Emily's Deck of Me challenge - the prompt this week was 'Shoes'. At first I thought I could print out those funky shoes I love that I bought a few weeks ago, but as cool as they would look it doesn't say much about me.

I have had "big feet" for a long time and it has defined me to an extent. I have never been a shoe person, but out of circumstance more than choice. Mind you, maybe I would never have been a shoe person! Now it is easier because they make shoes to size 11 a lot of the time.

CHECK THIS OUT!
I was soooo excited yesterday when Kell smsd me saying that Bam Pop and Basic Grey Phoebe had arrived. And then it was made even more exciting when she got home to find all the new Urban Lily ranges had also arrived!! That was it - after dinner I packed a few supplies and headed over to play :)

Lucky Kell worked away adding everything to Kiti Q while I scrapped away on the floor and watched 'House'. Ah the joys of being a designer instead of a business owner ;) Here is the layout I created which is for Kiti Q's fortnightly newsletter later today.

On Tuesday night I did a layout for the 123 challenge for February - the criteria were to use green, no patterned paper and stamping somewhere. I stamped my Poppy Ink bird stamp on a bit of cardstock and added it to the collection of bits and pieces. The patterns are SEI tabs and frames, which are actually cardstock stickers. It turned out ok I think, though I'm not in love with it. I'm a patterned paper addict ;) Actually I think next time a challenge comes up I will dare everyone to use NO CARDSTOCK. LOL. I did it quite by accident just the other day.

Man I'm chirpy this morning. Must be all this scrapping :)

I love your card! Size ten isn't so bad :) I always see cute styles here in Buffalo in 10's. I think it is because everyone here has 8.5 feet. I can never find anything cute! :)

And the Bam Pop stamps are putting me in a financial crisis. I must have everything - they are so darn cute. I love the new BG stuff, but man, I love Bam Pop. Love your LO's with them!
