jbs mercantile january: sting ray!

this is a classic example of why i like to keep all the little tiny scraps of patterned paper until the very end of kit creating.  this was the third layout that i made from the january kits.  it was also made after i did those 12 project life pages and all the one little word pages.  there wasn't much left.   i was still able to create a fun patchwork effect though!  if you look closely, the aquas all blend nicely, but they're not the same papers at all.  on the left is a scrap of the vellum, on the top right are a couple snippets of patterned paper, and on the bottom right is the sliver of amy tan stitched pocket that i had cut down to make it fit in my project life album.  i brought in some washi tape from my stash that perfectly matched my son's faded red shirt.  i've even got a couple words off some of the bar strips from the patterned paper on this one!  saving the trash pile till the end is good stuff; i'm telling you!
