New Challenge at MCT!

It's time for a new challenge with the My Creative Time design team. For this challenge we're using a sketch (see below product list). Sketch challenges are my favorite. The original sketch is a 8.5x11, but I adapted it to fit my 12x12 format. My base cardstock looks blue, but it's really green.

In this image alone, I used seven MCT stamps and die sets. Can you find them all? I went a little nuts again, but it's easy to do with the versatility of these products. In the end, I think I used a total of fifteen sets on this page, and multiples from some of the sets.

My husband. He is all these things and more, and I am so lucky to have found him! He is just as much my best friend as he is my hubby. We laugh all the time and really enjoy each other's company. And the older we get, the sillier we are. Mostly it's fun having him around, but some days I do have to chase him out to his shop for a break. LOL ;) The words come from the Tab Notes set, tiny heart from the You're So Cool stamp set. Flags are from the Chocolate Greetings stamp and die set.

I super love this adorable typewriter image from the Once Upon a Time stamp set. The sentiments that come with it are so perfect. Our "once upon a time" has a wonderful and happy ending. For all our ups and downs, we always end up back on the same page. And don't forget the XOXO die.

That's my layout for today. I hope you enjoyed it with all the goodies I crammed onto it. LOL I'm a little proud of myself for learning how to add a zillion things to one page without it looking cluttered or overcrowded when I finish. At least, I hope it doesn't look all cluttered, anyway. Either way, I like how this one turned out and it's a great pic of my hubs - not easy to accomplish in itself! ;) Thanks for coming by!
