Carousel Ride

I am feeling very proud of myself so far this month I have complted 14 layouts! This one I did for a recipie challenge over at Frosted Designs which called for envelopes, tickets and stamps. The prize is really great - packs of Graphic 45 paper! They are one of my fave brands so I jumped at doing this challenge!
Here I used some Kaisercraft paper and embelishments as well as some VERY old stamps I had put away for when I scrapped these pictures. I punched out some small hearts to make the closing of the envelope and then I looked and thought maybe I should punch the stamp shape using the heart negative as a centre. I had never done this before it just came to me because I love using negatives on my pages. I loved how this turned out! The great thing about scrapping is how these little ideas just pop into your head all of a sudden! I loved this challenge and love the fact that my page turned out to be something totally different from what I had first imagined!!!
