Back in November 2006 I had the privilege of attending a class of Elsie Larson's (or Flannigan as she was known then) at the Inspiration Scrapbook Convention held at Penrith in Sydney. I attended two full days of classes but my favourite by far was Elsie's.
I loved her happy freestyle approach to scrapbooking. Her enthusiasm was contagious and she was (and still is I am sure) such a sweetie.
I was a complete scrapbook nerd and had my photo taken with Elsie as well as having her sign my copy of her book 52 Scrapbooking Challenges. Yep scrap nerd.
Which in a roundabout way brings me to the Blast From the Past item I included in my February Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit "Joy Ride" - Riley stickers from Elsie's "Love Elsie" range produced by KI Memories (circa 2007):
And yes I had the full sheet. I had not used one single little sticker. The situation had to be remedied: it called for drastic action: I needed a plan to use a LOT of stickers.
Enter the ever inspiring Shimelle Laine and her video here. Those layered embellishments were just what I needed.
3/4 of a sticker sheet later and I was happy with the finished product.
And I love the end result, so bright and happy and those "Love Elsie" stickers finally have a home in my album.
What "blast from the past" made it into your kit this month?
