Using Scraps

As much as I love pulling out a brand new full sheet of patterned paper from my stash, I also get a lot of joy from digging through my scraps container and finding the perfect scrap of patterned paper to use on a project. It makes me feel thrifty and resourceful... and it brings to mind the layout(s) that I made originally with that paper.

Here's what I used my scraps for today:

It's for Cameron for Valentine's Day. I got the idea and instructions from Jennifer McGuire. To see how to make one of these candy holders, click here.

It's also my day to post on the CMK blog, so if you want to check out today's post for the Friday Formula, you can click here.

Hope you're having a great Friday. Mine is going fairly well. I baked a confetti square, some cinnamon buns, a cake and some cookie dough this morning. I also got an email from Scrapbook Trends Magazine requesting two of my layouts for publication in their July 2009 issue. And right now, I'm anticipating the arrival of eight kids in the next half hour: my two boys, two of their friends, and the four girls that I'm teaching a 4H photography class to. Good thing I baked some treats!

Goodness, you got so much baking done! I maybe, just maybe could have baked one of those things, but never all of that.
Love your candy holder. It is completely adorable. I know what you mean about using scraps. It feels really, really good. I just made a couple of cards from scraps, and got that same feeling.
Have a great weekend.
