Guess Who's Hosting Use It! #10??? :D

ME! :D Yay! I've been waiting a long time to win one of the challenges and my patience was rewarded :) Here's my challenge:

1. monochromatic scraps-
I went to town on my green scraps
with some circle punches.
I've really been trying to let my patterned paper
stand on its own,
and this was a great way to
display a lot of patterns in a small space.
.
2. rub-ons or clear stickers-
I originally used a white Making Memories rub-on,
which didn't show up as well as I thought it would,
so I covered with an identical rub-on in black
(I'd *really* use up my stash
if I did everything that way! lol)
.
3. chipboard-
in my case, the green and white swirl is a piece of
chipboard by DCWV (Green Stack line)
.
4. (optional) non-traditional ribbon
(for example, tape, a strip of paper or ripped fabric)-
I used white scalloped ribbon tape by Heidi Swapp.

I also used some brown polka dot ribbon by Pebbles Inc., some cardstock by ATD and DCWV patterned paper. It felt so great to use up those tiny scraps :) If you have some free time, I'd *LOVE* it if you could play along! Check out Rae's blog at: http://useitchallenges.blogspot.com

Have a FABULOUS weekend! I'm finishing up my invitations tonight and tomorrow... I hope to have pictures posted tomorrow or Sunday! YAY! :D
