Fall-To Layout #173

The Great Clean-Up continued: Selling back some CDs and VHS's did not prove to be as profitable as I thought it was going to be. I guess I was a little naive walking into the store, thinking I would have enough money to score some nail polish at Ulta afterwards. I did get a used DVD copy of Casino Royale and some change back. Oh well. At least that stuff is out of the house. It does no good to keep in a box, which also takes up space. I foresee going back to the store to sell back some more stuff over the next couple of days. Maybe I can sell the Disney VHS's that are hanging out in my parents' basement. I can't see myself watching them anytime soon.

Card: Here's my take on Fall-To Layout #173. I revisited my stash of American Crafts Botanique goodies. I gravitated to a very pretty rub-on and then went from there. I used the B side of a sheet of brown patterned paper to match the dark pink sentiment and used some green patterned paper to contrast the yellow and pink. To make sure that the rub-on went on straight, I used a T-square ruler and some washi tape to hold the rub-on temporarily to the card base. I think it's kinda cool that I didn't use any ink or stamps for this card.
Card Specs:
Paper: American Crafts- Botanique
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch
Rub-Ons: American Crafts Botanique
Pearl: Recollections
Other: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner

Goals for tomorrow: grocery shopping and finding some frames from Michaels.

Song of the day: "Hello Hurricane"- Switchfoot. Heard it at spin class this morning. There was actually a full class today (25 people), which I was kinda surprised about. I hadn't reserved my spot, so I was happy to get a seat anywhere.
