Yippee Skippy it's Friday!

Happy Friday my scrapparific friends! This week has flown by! I'm excited because tomorrow is my monthly girls crop! My plan is to get there at 10 am when they open, so we will have almost 12 hours of cropping time. One thing I am hoping to purchase is some of the new Early Bird line from Cosmo Cricket. I'm totally enamored with the smiling toaster!

Okay, so I finished my project for the current challenge at The Next Step, which is to reinvent your old patterned papers. I took this old, rather bland black and white paper, and added some new painted circles with the leftover paint from last night's layout - a mix of turquoise and lime. Then I outlined and doodled with a white Sharpie. It was fun and got me inspired to do more of this - I have a ton of old papers that need revamping! Here's the result...

Tonight after work will be spent getting ready for the crop. I think I might print off some challenges, and work on those - that's always fun and freeing!

I hope you have a fantastic Friday! I will be back tomorrow with another update - take care and thanks for stopping by!

Awesome paper revamp, Michelle. I am still feeling a little jealous about the white sharpie. I still can't find one here. Regardless, I love that paper.
