I can't believe it made it on the page!

I told myself I wasn't going to go to the Truckload sale that recently happened at Scrapbook Centrale, because I have way too much stuff. On Tuesday I caved, and ended up carting both kids there after Parker's gym class. I normally hate bringing the kids into the store, but I figure I spend less money if I have less time to look around. (or at least that's what I keep telling myself). There weren't any huge mishaps this time, other than Ethan dumping his goldfish crackers all over the floor, as well as emptying out a whole can of paper flowers. He actually spent lots of time sifting through a box of Prima stuff on the floor. To my dismay he picked out a paper pieced lamb and decided he wanted to keep it. After a bit of negotiating, We agreed to take home a bear instead. I was honestly going to leave it at the cash, but when Melanie saw it, and jokingly uttered the challenge " I dare you to use that on a page!" ...Well you know what happens from there...

Here is the result:

I used some of the stamps I also picked up at the sale ( Gel-a-tins), as well as some newer stuff like the AC grid stamp and a Crafters Workshop template and lots of older goodies. ( I love it when I can use a good range of my stash on a page!)
