scrappy shares: pom pom grass

a just for fun layout, because i felt like being creative with paper and bits.  a rarity these days.  i am charmed by the way this one turned out.  i always feel a little extra happy when i find a way to use my martha stewart snowflake punches on a non-winter layout.   that's a bonus, right?

the biggest snowflakes are overlaid with tiny flat pompoms cut from embroidery floss.  most of the random bits are leftovers from previous jbs mercantile kits.  you know the german foil beetles and vintage papers under the pictures came from jenni.  i love the way the wood veneer hand and gold beetles bring focus to the photos without distracting from them.  that is embellishing hard at work.

the title was a happy accident.  i adore the subway foam thickers and hope they never run out, but i was short on o's for this title.  normally, i would just use the zeros instead, but they were ovals and i wanted circles to fit with the pompom theme.  i ended up using the last 'o' from the set and mixing in a flat sticker 'o' from another set and then a flat sticker 'm' and the word 'grass' from yet another sticker set to balance it all out.  delightful.

and now i am thinking i need to mow the grass one more time this fall, so it doesn't look like this again come spring.  i guess that will require finding a new gas cap, since we seem to have lost the original.  hmmm . . .
