I remember when, years ago, I fell in love with these Scrapworks tailored letter tabs. I thought they were so cool. But, they were also pricey, so I refrained from buying them.
Then, a couple of years later, my friend, Anita, had a garage sale and had some of her leftover letters in a little baggie for sale. I think they were priced at a dollar or something like that, so I snatched them up. I made this layout with them, back in April 2007:
(Look how cute & little Jonah was here!)
But I haven't use them since then.
Until, I came across them last month when I was cleaning through my supplies and getting ready for a garage sale of my own. I was tempted to price them and sell them, but I remembered how much I liked them. So I sat down and tried to figure out some words I could spell with them. One of them was "Austin", which I knew I could easily incorporate into a layout. The other words were partial, but I figured I could substitute other embellishments for the missing letters. So I challenged myself to use up the rest of the letters and here's what I came up with....
A layout about Austin, using some My Mind's Eye paper:
Two cards, using some Crate Paper:
A third card with some more My Mind's Eye goodies:
And another layout, which I shared last week:
So, I think I did fairly well. I have a Q, F, X and D left, so if you have any suggestions for words I could use with these on a layout, feel free to let me know. ;)
(It's really too bad I couldn't get a picture of the FoX we saw on the gravel road the other day. He was just too Darn Quick!)
Thanks for looking!
