Masking and Scrapping

I feel I kinda cheated on this challenge this week from Freshly Made Sketches.  The sketch is pretty much bang on - except for the masked stamps along the bottom.  The "cheating" comes in because I pretty much cased the base of the card from the Stampin' Success Magazine on page 7.  I added the wee little 5 cent stamp next to the twine and then changed the bottom by adding the masked stamps.
I'm using this card as one of my techniques in September.
Sorry to the FMS ladies!

This is the Day 21 page for the 31 Pages in 31 Days.  Stamping on the cotton ribbon is sooooo easy.

Day 22 of the 31 Days is a double spread.  I had never created the pin-wheels before.  It was fun, and I added a bamboo skewer for the handle as Lyssa had done.  I am loving getting these old pictures scrapped!

I'm off to get more photos printed.  WoooHooo!
Hope your day is going well - Thanks for stopping by.
