My project for August 2015 Graphic 45 using Rare Oddities collection of paper!

The little Chest of Drawers is from Club Scrap's 2014 Retreat.  I have been waiting to use this little drawer and inspiration hit when I was cleaning and put away the Rare Oddities paper.  See post below for a lot of little things I found and they all seemed to flow together!

Supply List:

Graphic 45 Rare Oddities 12x12 paper
Ranger, Tim Holtz Distress Collection coredinations paper
Terrifically Tacky Tape, ATG adhesive, Scotch paper glue
some Tim Holtz metal labels
Oriental trading brads
whatever else I found in my stash that worked :).

Graphic 45 Contest

Well, I am planning to enter this month - not that my project is out of this world, but I was inspired by some oddities I gathered while cleaning my scrap area. 

Then, I remembered this fun little Chest of Drawers that I purchased from Club Scrap because it looked like fun.  It is from their 2014 Retreat.  I do hope I can attend one of their retreats sometime.  I love their monthly kit!  Well, after cleaning my scrappy area, it is time to start using more things.  After finishing up the wedding cards (video a few posts prior to this one), it is time for something fun!
 So, first step - start painting!  I am going with black as the Graphic 45 Rare odditites paper looks like it will work great with black.  While I am not a huge fan of all the deathly wording, my plan is to not use those parts (or cover them up) and just have fun.  I like it because this doesn't look like Halloween paper.  I don't mind Halloween, just don't want this to look like a Halloween project.

 The paint I used is just plain old Acryllic paint from Walmart - Apple Barrel Black.

Scrapping with my stash!

I have been cleaning/organizing my scrappy area and discovered several Shapez by Xyron for the Creatopia that have never been used.  They are Spellbinders dies - Frame 7 in this case.  Below is my first project with these dies.

Well, gotta love technical glitches -- I will post results once I find the photo - or retake :).

Wedding invite with cows!

Yes, Charolais and Angus.  Hard to show using one hand to video and one to get card out
