Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

One "October Afternoon"...

I have to say it again...I'm just THRILLED at all of the creations I've been able to complete while on my visit to PA this week!  I probably helps that it's been sooooooo hot AND humid out, that it's too uncomfortable to spend any time what's a girl to do?...WELL...stay INSIDE and CREATE!

I really feel like my "frugal" side is getting some much needed attention, too...Did you ever consider the fact that MAYBE, just MAYBE some of the creative block we sometimes experience is from TOO MANY choices?

This takes me back to being a young mom...I used to say that when kids have TOO MANY choices in toys to play with, they cannot concentrate and just be happy playing with one toy at a time...WELL, I think this same "rule" applies to paper crafting!  I used to put some of my kids toys "away" in a closet and would rotate them out every 3 months or so...THEN they always thought they had NEW toys to play with (or old FAVORITES that came back into play).  Since we didn't have much disposable income back then, I felt we got alot more out of what we DID have, but rotating it in and out of "PLAY".

Soooooo, since I brought just a FEW pieces of pp with me (about 12 sheets), I've been able to zero in and just get down to business.

Today, I played with my October Afternoon sheets again.  Since there were 2 sheets of pp that I brought, both double sided, so it was like bringing 4 sheets.  WAHOO!

Here's what I created today:

I did use a few embellies that my stepmom has had FOREVER...those would be the little aqua flower brads...remember them?  The ribbon is also from her stash...

I just LOVE IT when a FRUGAL creation comes together!
