Favorite Things, Frosted Designs & Practical Scrappers

Over at the These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things blog the challenge is to create a layout of your favorite pair of shoes! This challenge has a total of TWENTY-EIGHT prizes!!! That's crazy but fun!! I've had it on my list to do since I first saw it posted but didn't have a picture or any ideas in mind. Today at work I (once again trying to avoid the ever-growing piles of paper) I came up with a plan, using a sketch #28 by Susan Stringfellow at Sketch Savvy and Doodlebug papers. The flowers are also Doodlebug and two of them are glittered which qualifies this layout for the Frosted Designs and Practical Scrappers weekly challenges. The green loopy border sticker by Doodlebug is also glittered but its hard to tell from the photo. Not sure who makes the ribbon as its been in my stash a while, as have the purple chipboard letters which I know came from Walmart but not sure the brand, and the giant clip is from a warehouse sale at Junkitz about 5 years ago!! I LOVE using up my older stash!! The white cardstock is American Crafts and I distressed it with the Distrezz-It-All. I love these shoes....TODAY! They happen to be my newest shoes, so until the next pair, they are my favorites. Actually, I have to tell you that they were a deliberate purchase. Most of my shoes I didn't set out to buy, but these were different! I get emails from Payless and usually ignore them. This one I happened to look at and these shoes and a cute bag were featured. I instantly loved them and the next morning was at my local Payless, leaving with the bag and shoes!!! I think that will be it for tonight! Its getting late and I still have laundry to finish. Man, I wish I didn't have to work! :) I'd be so happy to have nothing to do all day long but scrap and take care of my family. Alas, work I must and to do that, I must also have clean clothes! Its a vicious cycle!
