jbs mercantile: scattergories! aka game time!

we've got a super fun new game going over at jbs mercantile!  a scrappy version of scattergories!

five reasons you should enter:
1. we're a fun group to hang out with
2. it's an inspiring challenge that will spark your creativity
3. you'll become reacquainted with your stash
4. cheating is always fun
5. there's a prize involved!

here's my first take on the challenge and i just might have to play another round.  this layout came together so quickly!  the photos were taken over the christmas break while g was in florida with his papi.  the kitties kept me good company while he was gone.  g noticed this layout last night actually and asked me why i had spent so much time in the living room as we always hang out in the craft room together.  i guess the answer would be i was lonely and letting the tv keep me company too?  i was definitely glad when my warm and squishy baby came home!

scattergories supplies i used:
DEAR lizzy patterned paper
jbs red/black extension iv patterned paper with DIAMONDS
DIAGONAL washi tape from target
DARK chocolate chip chipboard alphas from basic grey (three old fonts)
tim holtz DISTRESS stain in mustard seed
october afternoon midway DECAL alpha stickers
DOTS from paper source
DIE-CUTS gifted to me by gluestickgirl
DOUBLE-PRONGED metal attachers aka staples

aren't the splats just lovely?  that's a little trick i learned from louise nelson and it works just beautifully with the tim holtz distress stains.


  1. Awesome layout! Love your "double-pronged" metal attachers, lol! :) Evie

  2. oh i wish i wish, i could scrapbook like you. so sweet, love the splats.
