Good day! I don't seem to get to play with AFSC that often these days.
Too many challenges; not enough time! But this one 'tickled my fancy'!
February you may use one full sheet of paper only,
and all other pieces of paper in the layout must be
from your scraps. One embellishment must be
leftover from a package where you have used your
favourite embellies from it already, and have not 
ound a use for the one you choose yet.
Since this year is my scrap busting year [cough, splutter....well. I'm TRYING!!!!] this
worked a treat! My paper choice - all double sided, which helped:
The 'xoxo' little scallop sticker was from my scrappy mate JO, ages ago.....
& I do LOVE my enamel dots, but these are VERY old ones, too:)
I even CUT FLOWERS out of some of the floral paper. Move OVER
YES! You DO need to see a photo of my fussy cutting. Giggles....
And on the page:
 And I'm enamoured with these Pink Paislee puffy stickers. Which might not be
that old..... !!!!
Such a LOT of fussy cutting. For me, I mean!!!
I really liked the way this turned out. Doing the KISS principle here.
You haven't heard of it? Keep It Simple Sweetheart/Stupid. Whichever
you prefer!!!!
Anyways, I'd like to thank AFSC for a wonderful challenge this month!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
