"All Yours"

Ok. Ummm no this is not the blue page I was working on yesterday but I got inspired to knock around with some of this odd red/berry color. Its grand in person and I was shocked that I was able to find embellies that I had around to match well enough with the scheme. I did run out and buy the reddish pearls because I felt that all tan would be too boring! Again, even though the photos give it an element that is required I am not able to show them. The main color in the photos is this reddish color and brown so again, did my best to make it matchy!

Entering into the following challenges: The paper is old old as well as my sticker words.
  I used up some more wedding paper and the words came from last years clearance. *sigh* at least it getting used :)

*TIP* (long one kinda)

I love how the word stickers are placed on the "factory" setting clear sheet thing. I can never get them off and evenly spaced or lined up like the plastic sheet they come on so I started to do my word stickers like this. It saves me time because I do not have to place the letters one at a time and its better than what I can do by my eyeballing it. The "all" is already done but I will show you with the next word. I cut the plastic off about half, or if its a bigger word less than half (because it might stick to its self).

Then I pretty much line it up where I want it and firmly hold down the part that I cut away the plastic clear stuff. Peel off the plastic clear part and try not to do it at too much on an angle you dont want to crease the letters. If a letter comes away no shame, just remember to press firmly next time over the entire part of the word. Take your time and line it back up in place.  Ps.  my "Y" did not stick down and I had to replace it because I was not holding down as well as I should have there.

Press the letters to make sure that they are all stuck.

Enjoy time saved and have a drink. A small one because you need to get back to work!
