Farm Fresh Friday "Spring Cleaning"

Yay! It's Friday! Where did the week go? I hope the weekend doesn't go as fast. This week we have super fun challenge for you. We want you to use something you either a.) found that you FORGOT you had or b.) were going to THROW OUT but decided to use it for this challenge.  On your honor!  Make it fun!

I was in the process of cleaning off my craft table and found some scraps that had nestabilitie cut-outs in them. Now normally I would throw those out because I never end up centering them properly or there isn't enough scrap around them.  I decided that I would use that yellow scallop cut out and use a circle nestie to get a uniform edge around it. I also had the grey polka dot paper with a circle cut out of it. I again used a bigger nestie and barely squeeked out the thin circle. While I was looking in my embellishment bin I stumbled upon a package of various brads by Pink Paisley and one of them was the corduroy brad I used on the flower. What a great find! The designer papers are from October Afternoon (I luuurve those papers). That cutie stampin' girl is Stamping Anya from the Greeting Farm. I love her 80's vibe with the fabulous t-shirt.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week and have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for stopping by. For more inspiration on this challenge please visit the rest of the DT.
