Grungy Love ...

Pin It


Happy Stump Day, hampers ... hope your Valentine's Day was love-ly!

Today's project is an altered Journal created for Studio L3's "Grungy Monday" challenge. This week, we're creating Valentine's Day projects ~ Tim Holtz-style! For all of the challenging deets, clicky HERE . This week's grungy challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and there's a fabulous shopping spree up for grabs ... need I say more?!? You can check out the Simon Says Stamp store HERE.

For the down-low on all of the heart-pounding product I used, check out the Supply List, below.

Sooooooooo, yesterday Sheila and I teamed up to go shopping run some errands. Our last stop was the pharmacy ... where it was determined that I would go in while Sheila would double park look for a parking space.

"Hey, Ken asked me to pick him up some deodorant. Will you grab some for me?" Sheila asked.

"Sure ... do you want the ball-type?"

"No, underarm."

It's been that kinda week ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!

~Hugs,
