Creating with Scraps - Day 1

Okay, best laid plans never seem to work.  You know how I had planned to take my crafting supplies with me camping and create a whole bunch of things ... well, that just didn't happen.  We were too busy.  So, I decided to see what I could create anyway with the same supplies ... but just at home. 

I pulled out the supplies I had packed and swore that I would use nothing but what was there.  Man, was it hard not to grab something that was in my stash but I resisted (except for a few times)!  In the end, I created a ton of cards - 29 in total plus one bookmark!!!  Of course, there were still enough card bases to create 18 more cards and other scraps to create about 10 times that many cards!   

Here are a few of the photos of the frenzie mid-create:

Look at all those bits and pieces.  What fun I had!!!  I could have been creating for hours
and hours and hours ... wait ... I did create for hours!!! 

Here is one of the creations I made.

It was the very first card I created.  The flower image has been 'hanging around' for about ever! and the butter fly was alos one I have had in my scrap bin for a long time.  I had added some of that thin ribbon to the stash and it came in very handy.  I really like the result of this Clean and Simple (CAS) card. 
Stay tuned for the rest that I will be posting in the coming days.
