Saturday, August 13, 2011 online crop

I completed this layout for the grid challenge at

The theme for this challenge for me was..."just cut it". And the ever popular, "it's only paper."
Can you tell sometimes I have trouble using some newest product that I'm in love with?

So, I sliced into my Five and Dime collection from October Afternoon. It only hurt a little. Plus, I got some pictures of myself scrapped. Forty years later =)
I am loving all the challenges from the crop! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I hate cutting into paper too, so I'm with you on that, but this LO is so wonderful. Fantastic x

  2. I know it's hard to cut up paper--I'm so with ya!--but your layers are just beautiful!! LOVE the ruler!

  3. I too have this same issue, but them I have all this paper that I've been hording because I'm too scraed to cut it up, or cover it up. Then the next thing I know I forgot I even have the paper. You know ho it goes, so I have been really trying to push myself to just do it. It's kind of freeing!

  4. 40 years must be a record although I did scrap some of my grandmothers wedding from 1945 so maybe I win on the old photo front ;)

    This is gorgeous and I absolutely love your take on the grid.

  5. Wow - this is lovely! It's so hard to cut into those favorite papers, isn't it??? But, you did great with it!
