Bossy scraper 12

Here's my take on meeks bossy instructions, I used 1 piece of patterned paper, paint, stamps and ink, plan chip letters coloured with ink, grunge board arrow and skull, brackets and a white pen.
these are great fun so if you haven't tried it yet go over to SBBD
you can follow the instructions there, we meet every Sunday night at 8pm in the chat room,
its great talking in real time and it gets you trying different things and ALWAYS a great laugh.
soooooooooo dont be shy come and have some fun.

SB challenge 3

This challenge was to use "exactly 10" items in total, sounds easy right!! lol that's what i thought to until i started.

Well its done, I still have to keep some of the storage things in here but it defiantly is a lot easier and faster to scrap now, still wont a few more holders though lol.

Scrap room befor

I was inspired to sort out my scrap area after reading Kelly's blog, this is a tiny room that
collects and stores those things you don't need right now or don't wont to part with, I pushed
a table in there when i started scraping but now i have plenty of supplies i found it hard to find things... yes.... you can see why lol.
I brought a second hand wall unit (it was cheaper than buying shelves) then sorted things
into colours like buttons,beads etc it took me all weekend to get it back together in between
all the other things i needed to do. I have to say it is soooooo much easier and faster to find what I'm looking for now. I will post a picture tomorrow of the tidy version :)
thanks for dropping by
And THANKS Kelly for the inspiration
