Rolled Paper CARDS Magazine Challenge

Cleaning up: I went over to my parents' house this afternoon and got sucked into the Great Clean-Up. Dad's out of town for a few weeks, and Mom decided that this would be an opportune time to clean up the basement and reorganize. Some of my boxes were in the corner, and they were calling my name so I went through some of them. At the end of it all, there were three piles of stuff: recycle, trash, and donate/resell. I had to laugh when I found some of my graduate school course work. Well, I already got my diploma so there's no use for it anymore ::dump in recycle pile::

I went to the library on the way home to drop off some books for donation. The librarian was so happy to see the pile of books I left on the counter. As I was walking out, she said to the other lady at the counter, "Tina used to work here as a page..." Yep, and you were my first boss.

Hey, everyone's gotta start somewhere, right?

The clean-up continued when I got home, where I started going through my CDs and VHS's, because, I really don't use them anymore. I found a place near work that says they'll buy used stuff. We'll see how that goes tomorrow. I'll be happy if I can spend it on nail polish on clearance at Ulta, which is conveniently nearby.

Card: Here's my take on this week's CARDS Magazine challenge where we were challenged to make a card with rolled paper. I decided to create a sun with rolled paper and use that as the focal point of my card. I took scraps of patterned paper to create with rays of the sun. The sentiment was actually printed from my computer and punched out. I thankfully had some cloud patterned paper to go along with the sky theme. I thought the sun looked kinda lonely by itself so I added some bird friends.

It seems to be the new year organizing theme.

Like the new card.
