With a little help from a friend....

Today I did a layout for a challenge on . We were given the title - Back to Basics - and had to use black cardstock, purple and jade/green paper, ribbon, stickers, eyelets, rhinestones and pearls. We could not use chipboard - fine, I could handle that. The other no no was FLOWERS!!!! NO FLOWERS AT ALL - now that is a major problem.
This left me only one option - call in help!

Select the paper:

Cut some cardstock:
The eyelet is in here somewhere:
Nat's job is done:
The finished layout:In the process I had to rescue my sanding disk, ink, eraser and ribbon from Nat rat - apparently they are quite tasty!

WOOHOO - well done Nat - phew and all that without flowers.

Great layout Karen - I love it - Nat's pretty cute too.

Karen, aren't you lucky you had Nat to help you out. Otherwise you wouldn't have been able to do it without flowers. HEHE

The layout looks great.

I think Nat needs his own Scrapbook blog, maybe even a column in For Keeps!!!
