Clear Up-The Studio Challenges

Hey y'all! Hope you're enjoying your Saturday. We are staying warm inside as the temps are pretty chilly here! Trying to get things done around the house before we head out to dinner with friends tonight.
I was able to create a page for the current challenge at The Studio Challenges. It is to use what's on your desk at the moment and clear it up! I was lucky, as there is a lot of product and scraps laying all over my desk! Here is my page 
I used the remainder of the October Afternoon paper from the Farm Girl collection that was left from a previous page. The other papers are from my stash & were on my desk to punch from. I grabbed them & cut & scattered them around my photos. Before I laid anything down, I "painted" my cardstock with gold mist. I love doing this as the result is thin, not as thick as paint on my page.

The AC Thickers were laying on my desk, as was the "3" tag from Crate Paper. The stickers are all from an American Crafts Dear Lizzy sticker stack that has been laying on my desk for months  
because I love it so much!

 My snowflake punch from Martha Stewart is getting quite the workout this winter & I never do seem to put it away!! The glitter cardstock is also a seasonal favorite.

These sweet enamel shapes from My Mind's Eye were screaming to be used!!

These photos always make me smile! We had just gotten our puppy, Nellie & she was about 10 weeks old here. Ty, being a typical three year old, couldn't decide if he loved her or loathed her! On this day, when he was trying to build "snow castles" & she was eating them or knocking them down, he was very upset with her & definitely leaned toward the loathing feeling!

Hope you  have time to craft this weekend!!
