Di-strezz It All!

Today was a day that a little scrappy stress relief was in order. After I finished work, I whipped up a card and a layout. Both items got lots of attention from my Distrezz-It-All.  It works wonders on paper & my mood!

Using Amy's September Sketch Inspiration at ScrapFreak:
I am trying to get some more of who I am into my scrapbooking.  This is about my love of...you got it....books!  The book paper has been waiting for years to be used.  I also used some Bazzill and Creative Imaginations.  The heart was made out of easy-to-use cardboard and misted with both Tattered Angels and Maya Mist. Alphas by American Crafts.  Yes, I did sew on this one & my sewing machine didn't lock up on me (thankfully).

I used Lucy's Sept. 1st My Sketch World card sketch for "You Rule."
I made "You Rule" an example for my September "Measure Up" card challenge at My Sketch World Forum.  The challenge is to use ruler paper or ribbon on a card.  The rule paper I used is at least 5 years old & I have no idea where it came from, but I distressed the heck out of it.  The other paper is MME, the stickers are Paper Trunk, Alphas by AC, and journal paper by Fancy Pants.  I even dragged out my CTMH notebook punch. 

On a side note, my baby girl went off to 6th grade this week.

Next week, my oldest heads off for her senior year.  I am sure there is more distressing in my future!
