Memorial Day: a day of accomplishments

I had high ambitions for this Memorial Day.  I got up at my usual time and since John was at work and the kids were asleep I got started.  My objective?  I could use however much paper I wanted I just could not have an scraps (I have too many all ready).  Okay, I can do this.

I took one pack of paper by Basic Grey (Kioshi) and used that as my starter paper.  I added some plain cardstock, but most of todays paper came from that pad. 

The first scrapbook layout and two cards were made for the MOJO Monday and the CR84FN scrapbook challenges. 

In addition to the Basic Grey paper I used Black archival ink by Ranger, Walnut Stain ink by Tim Holtz, plain papers by Recollection and Bazzil, stickers by Basic Grey, and clear transparencies from a kit that I got at CKC.
