Sometimes we scratch our heads

Because I am a use it up person, I cannot stand to throw away a perfectly good piece of cardstock.  I had this coral piece lying on my desk for weeks, like maybe two months or more, just couldn’t figure out what to do with it.  I punched the edge and then got stuck.  Now I love Stampin Up’s old Cameo Coral, it’s the perfect coral color but this was something in a pack from another company and the texture and the color were just “stopping” me.  Today I told myself THIS piece is going to get used.  Looking for contrast colors to use with it I dug into my brown and blue scrap envelopes and I had this cute little image that came off from a calendar.  You know those bitty peeks they give you on the back of a calendar when you purchase them?  Well Sarah gave me the 12 months bitties a couple of years ago.  This was the last one left and IT was still on my table too.  I am getting a lot accomplished with all these bits and pieces.  I don’t suppose a person ever really catches up with all the scraps and things, but I just like to take care of the scraps from the last projects I made sometime.  Sentiment stamps are from GinaK Designs stamptv.  Background stamp is from Mark’s Finest Papers and is the first set I ever won and I have used it and used it and used it.  I don’t think there is a piece of that set that I haven’t used.  It was called Frames and Flourishes but it is retired now.
