Your first task is to pick a BASE for your page. Think outside the box! I did... I cut up a mailing box and used the cardboard for my base. I ripped, glimmer misted, and distressed the heck out of it! Try using unexpected materials for your base like acrylic, wood veneer, recycling, transparencies, textured cardstock, whatever! Pick a base... that's my instructions. Now, you must go back to the blog and leave a COMMENT with a fact about me that you didn't know before. Read my past entries for tidbits about me and my life! Interesting reading I'm sure. LOL! Once you post your fact about me, move on to the next blog for further instructions! Have fun and at the end post your layout for a chance to win this:
