July June Bugs!

Happy Tuesday Everyone. I did another monthly challenge with my local scrapbook store. I have to say, this challenge stuff gets me diving into my stuff and gets my mind into a creative zone, that I love. The July challenge was using the Basic Grey's "June Bug" line of papers. We also had a blue pen included where you had to journal somewhere on the layout (I don't like my handwriting so I put mine inside the "story" pocket to hide it), and 9 papers total. As usual, I looked at this challenge saying.. "hmmm" a lot. I decided to do yet another "Tim" idea, using foam board and making nitches in my layout for some dimension. I decided to use some pictures from Ranger U for my layout. Ive not "scrapbooked" in a while.. multi media stuff yes.. scrapbooking per se, no. So, since I had to use a "little of everything" (its why I punched out flowers, because I had NO clue what else to do with some of these shades of paper I had). So, I used a little of everything and .......... tada! Finished layout! The clock arms do spin freely. Its fun to have bulk, accessories and gadgets that you can physically mess with on a page or an altered book.
