Pretty Paper Party!!

Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party has begun and, despite saying I was only going to dip in and work on a couple of ideas each week, I am already hooked!  The ideas are really interesting and the example layouts and cards make me want to have a try.

The party kicked off with ways to use off-cut strips and scraps.  Here's my scrapbook page to kick off a gift album I am making (way over-due as you can see from the date).
I'm using Teressa Collins supplies for the album but found some scraps of Anna Griffin paper from an older project that I'm going to incorporate in with it.

Then there are the cards, I'm thrilled that there are card examples in the daily prompts.

From Hot Off The Press scraps:
From My Minds Eye scraps:
And from the scraps of a very old mini album kit:
Now today's challenge is about patterned paper (not my elaborately designed problem stuff - hopefully we will be tackling that later).  Just every day patterns that you shy away from in case they overwhelm the whole page.  Now how can I resist having a try at that?

Just popped over from class - I like the colors in your layout and your cards look great. I created a card with scraps this morning and hoping to work on a few more this afternoon!
