One Random Stamped 12x12 Cardstock = 2 Double Page LOs

Well, school officially started here today, kinda bittersweet.
I'll miss the little fart...  ;) 

Cole has started Grade 6; his last year in elementary school.

But... finally, a photo op!  lol 

So this is what I finished today, using some pictures taken this morning before school.  :)

But I have to back up a minute and show you the process before showing you the final product, right?



It all began with a 12x12 Colonial White piece of cardstock, and a stamp set called Many Thanks, which is now retired, but still remains one of my faves, and Universal Backgrounds.

Add a little ink, and voila...







Then add a couple of layout designs from Magic, and a few cuts here and there... some embellishments and photos and this is what I made:


Layout 1:  Magic - Levitate








Layout 2:  Magic - Illusion








What do you think? 
i.love.them

And I even have a few scraps of random stamped cardstock left, so I guess I will have to make a card.  Darn, hey?!   ;)


Happy creating!  :)
