10-Minute-Scrap-Pile-Challenge

And this is what 10 minutes and the scrap pile got me today... Not bad, I'd say. Probably not my favorite ever, but that's kind of the pressure I'm trying to release myself from, so I'm happy with it. The stitched parts in the middle are from a recent Emma's project... that's the only scrap from it and I could not bear to part with it. I'm kinda diggin' this challenge because it's bringing new things to life for me. I'm totally into this leaf, ocean, and mustard combo... going to have to explore that one further. And, I apologize in advance because the mustard and text scraps are from my personal Christmas cards (yeah, that would be 130 cards worth of scraps... seriously) and I can assure you that those scraps are going to last me a good long while.
Soooo... the big question is... do you have a 10-minute-scrap-pile card laying around? If you feel like joining me, be sure to link your card up in the comments below. I'm not sure what form or fashion this little personal challenge of mine will take, but I'm interested to see if you're interested!
Later, friends!

10 minute scrap pile? More like 25 hours.... I'm a messy stamper. LOL! Love your card, sweet thang!

Oh this is fantastic! I love the way the different patterns work together. Now if only I could do that in 10 minutes!

And unfortunately I'm one of those "must throw something away" girls. So I rarely have any scraps! However, I have piles of new patterned paper sitting close at hand!

Stop it! OK seriously...I can't help myself from LOVING these scrap cards. It's because I know my scrap pile will never be more than just that. A crap, I mean scrap pile. However if I manage to do something with this incredible inspiration you have given me I will be back to let you know. You go girl!
