Getting Messy with Cami!

First, you need to read Cami’s blog! She’s a funny funny girl!  Cami and I worked together this weekend for National Scrapbook Day at a local scrapbooking store (Memories of Time) doing make and takes.  It was really a fun day! After the day slowed down we had a chance to participate in the other M&Ts that were offered in the store. 


Jenny Dill does all that cool collage grungy messy stuff.  I think it looks gorgeous, but so not in my comfort zone!  As soon as I sat down the stress began!  We used Ranger inks to create the background.  You can find a similar tutorial on Eclectic Paperie’s Blog. 

Jenny and I fought nearly the WHOLE time over it! It was all in good fun, but I honestly think we frazzled each other by the time we were done!  She wanted me to add a big PURPLE Prima flower! “What, PURPLE?” I said!!  “There is NO PURPLE anywhere on this. “ She said, “Yes, that is why you add it. It will make everything POP!”  Ya, I said, “It will make my eyes POP out!”  No PURPLE!  So she said, “"Okay, Green!”  and she handed me a GLOREOUS GREEN-colored Prima!  I said, “NO WAY that is worse than the purple!”  I compromised and I added ONE small green scroll-punch thing.  I said, “Is that good enough for the green?”  She so disappointedly said, “Yes, I guess that will do.”  She was happy that I used Stickles, and she did agree that is was very pretty, but I basically got an F in that class for FAILING to step out of my box!  BUT, I LOVE my project and I did sort of follow the rules…and I did add green (although it was NOTHING close to the color she wanted me to use!)  Everything that left her table was GORGEOUS though!!!  She’s a very talented Messy girl! 

Make sure you check out Cami’s messy make-n-take!  I’ll bet she was exhausted when she left the table….and she followed the rules! 

Jenny dear, I honestly loved your project and can’t wait to take more classes!
