You can do it challenge

I was invited to become part of a challenge group called
"you can do it".
First challenge!!!!!
Create a page using kraft or white and KEEP IT COMPLETELY 
SPLATTER FREE basically.
Soooo here's my version of the challenge.
I had some leftover paper that I used water colors on and
I repeated the circle theme around the page.
And it was a REAL challenge because
I still really really REALLY wanna splat something on it but I find
it different. I kinda like it.
YOU Try it.
And if you're a person that likes to keep it plain then
YOU get to splat it up.

Devils Tower

More hipstamatic fun on our trip out west.
Sometimes I wonder why I have a high end camera.
And yes, its even more awesome in person.
The state of Wyoming is beautiful.
People actually climb it.
I admired it from below because that's how I roll.

Studio Calico Patches

I only used one but patches sounded better than patch
which I believed I also used yesterday.
I'm getting redundant.
However, a patch in this case is like a girl scout patch.
And to be honest I had no idea what to do with it.
I have no clue why I was intimidated by it -
 I've used stickers bigger than this patch.
Anyway, the colors fit, well the red was a surprise
as it was the only color not in the arrow paper, and I loved
the sentiment, especially since this is Quintin's 
first no-training wheels ride down the street.
A rite of passage conquered.
Love that.

Patching together a base page

That you can't see.
Because I didn't think to take a photo because
in the first design - 
you'd almost have seen it.
This is an 8x8 page.
Somehow when I whacked into it, it became a lesser size.
So I squared it off to 8x7.5 and used the remaining paper, the B side
and washi'd them together.
I then decided that looked really stupid and added some water colors
and running colors.
Found some vellum, the die cut and a photo and decided that
it needed to be over top the patch.
Because I found the awesome tag at the top and it took up room.

So that blue streak at the bottom is a studio calico stamp, along with 
everything else on the page except for the bazzill, qk die cuts and punches.
OH and I handwrote the title.
And I tried to go for a less beachy looking page. Not that I'm 
against beachy looking pages but I've done them the same way lots of times.
And I wanted something different.
