Just when you think Stampin' Up! couldn't get more awesome, they partner up with Becky Higgins.  GENIUS!  I must say, the whole idea of scrapbooking scares me so I know that PL is just what I need to help me not have so much anxiety about it.

I'm going to ease myself in slowly.  I know that PL is geared toward scrapbooking but there are so many cute papers and pieces that I couldn't keep them off a card.  Could you resist??!!

Sequin trick:  Fold them in half to get a crease and then stick them on with glue dots.  They'll always catch the light this way.

Since the PL cards are double-sided I just didn't feel right about covering the back so...
Window sheet.

How about a second card?  After all, this kit comes with a bazillion little papers.

Love me some watercoloring.

To scrunch or not to scrunch?
That is the question!
When I was first covering the window sheet, I just stared at my paper.
I decided it needed "something" to make it more "me".
So I began scrunching the edges.
Both look good.  Decide which one looks better for your style.
