Week 2 with Brenda Turner

I squealed when I opened this week's "Square Pegs" sample from Brenda! I love using shapes stamps to create new images, this little shiny ladybug using the solid oval (egg) from the "Square Pegs" set for wings, love how it already has the little highlight! (greeting is from this set too), snipped in half and popped up, and circles from "Hip to Be Square" for the little body reveal and the smaller one for the head and tinier one for the dots, both from "Inspiration Mosaic" (plus the little dot for the spots from the same set!) was just so creative! You get SO much mileage from having all these large and small shapes in your stamp collection, they really open up so many possibilities when you are feeling playful, not just for backgrounds and borders... :) The pierced trail, black brads and dotted DP all tie it together, such sweet little details! Way to think outside the box, Brenda!

Now let's go see what else she dreamed up for today here!
