Instagram inspired.......

What a horrible no good week!
This week that was just bad from the get go. We didn't have computers for the two days at work... What was supposed to be a smooth transition from one update to another, just plain wasn't. Which led to the rest of the week playing catch up. What a relief to walk out the door Friday evening.

If only I could play with paper as my "real" job instead of my "fun" job. As a wise Dr. I work with would say..... "If wishes were fishes, we would all have our poles in the water". Love it!

After all the frustrations of the day, the reports and files I needed to work on at home just weren't happening. Instead I pulled out my challenge folder and went to work with a little creative escape.

I am totally in love with the instagram photos that smart phones offer, really makes me want to update my android to a newer version. The instagram photos inspired the edge treatment on my creation today.

This page started with a sketch on the rock paper scrapbook blog. I recently stumbled upon her blog and am looking forward to more challenges Ashley has to offer. You can find her blog at

Here's the sketch....

My Take...

Papers are from the CTMH victory line. I sponged ink around the edges to get the "instagram" effect around the page. Then stamped a border stamp from the Victory WOTG stamp set with White Daisy ink around the edges of the page.

Stamp sets used....
Vintage Type

Victory WOTG stamp set.....

Embellishments used........
Round Durable Studs and Foundry Number Plates

Now, off to do the paperwork and reports that need to be done for the "play" job.
