True XOXO ..how I've missed you!

It seems like only yesterday when I was on their DT and being their admin gal, but I gave up a lot of DT stuff and actually took a break from crating for a bit...BUT, it's September, 'I'm "KINDA" (I say KINDA cause there's times when I have no willpower-like at Hobby Lobby yesterday) in a USE MY STASH self-imposed restriction,  and so, I've compiled some projects finally and some challenges to get my mojo jumpstarted...the TRUE XOXO DT challenge this month caught my eye :)  So, since I've missed their "thinking outside the box" creativity, I thought I'd jump in on this month's Challenge # 33: Back to September!  challenge...  use something "unconventional" on a layout...something that truly stumped me since I'm kinda square..so I looked around on my desk and VOILA! I had it!

I took the liberty of scraplifting (part of their challenge too) the oh so fabulous and oh so evolving
Ms. Michelle Hernandez....
and came up with this:

I know, boring, not as colorful or exciting as hers, but I loved that her papers looked like ribbon so I got out my washi tape and cut it like hers, and I was inspired by the star thingees -I cut mine out of some patterned paper even though my original thought was to use DNC floss and brads..I got lazy plus I was scrapping somewhere where I didn't have all my supplies ...my unconventional items are of course a super cute plastic straw and a piece of a sewing pattern...so there ya go....thanks for looking !  ps-My September starts with this girl, she is a Labor Day baby so her birthday makes September OFFICIAL :)

HJop you'll hop over to TRUE XOXO and be inspired too !!!!!!!!!!!!!
