when the husband is away...

...the wife will make a mess.

i think it is an unspoken agreement between hubby and me that i can make all the scrapping mess i want as long as a.) he isn't around to see it b.) he doesn't have to deal with it. it is a necessary i think for a wife to possess skills of a magicians and be able to do tricks such as not leaving a trace so the husband will not suspect that the house was ever in this state:

i am generally an oc scrapper, i usually can't work with papers scattered and all my things strewn about. i have to put things back after i use them before i can proceed with my scrapping but that has proven to be tiresome especially if i realize later on that i still need the things i already put aside. plus, it's a real mojo killer.
anyway, enough chatter. oen of the reasons for the mess was i was playing with stamps which was the challenge for the feb 23 ad this. i love stamps but i usually dread using them because of the cleaning and storing i have to make. it was a good thing though that i joined this week's challenge so i was able to take them out of their packaging. this is this week's ad.

for my interpretation i flipped the ad 90 clockwise and used the shades in the ad in my lo - ecru, green, red, pink and orange. i also used some of my favorite stamps here - hero arts french script for my background, collage press grayson small for my title, the 3d butterfly stamp from studio azul, autumn leaves rhonna farrer stamps for my journaling, the cute oa owl stamp right above it and the postage and floral flourish from mm passport stamp.
as usual, my pictures don't really bring out the colors but at the very least, i do hope the stamped images are clear enough. that's about it for me. :)
