Hows about a super quick 12x12 layout today? Seriously, I finished this one so quick I thought it couldn't possibly be gone. LOL Start to finish- less then 30 minutes, that includes the time it took to talk myself into using that yummy paper. (Basic Grey Boxer, in case you wanted to know. LOL)
 It feels to to be creative again. ;-D There is something so therapeutic about making something with your hands, not to mention the feeling of accomplishment!!
(The pictures do not look so dark in real life.)
The pictures were taken on vacation last year, we spent a day in Philadelphia. After wandering around the city for a couple of hours taking in all the sights we decided it was time..... time for an authentic Philly Steak Sandwich. We got recommendations from several of the locals, but in the end we decided to go for the full experience- we opted for a street vendor. Oh my goodness, someone had run their big toe through it!! (That's an expression I picked up living in Columbus, it means it is better than delicious!! You know what I am talking about!! LOL)  It was the BOMB!!! and I got to take that off my Life List or as some call it a Bucket List. (Honestly, a few years ago when we made our Life Lists (Before the Bucket List movie) eating an authentic Philly steak was on my list!)
Anywho, back to the layout- I used small strips of different papers (that paper should last a LONG time using it this way) and inked all the edges. I dug out my beloved Coluzzle (rhymes with puzzle) system (don't get me started on it being retired!!!) and went to work. First I cut two half circles. Then......

Yep, I used it to make a scalloped border!!. (That was so easy to do. I drew a line on the back of my paper and then lined up the circle template to create half circles. Shift so the next "scallop" slightly overlaps the previous one.) I can not wait to try a scallop using some of the larger circles. oooh, I bet the ovals would work nice too!! Ok, go dig out your coluzzle and see what you can do with it.

Thanks for stopping by and the comments!!
Until later~

I have some Coluzzle templates, but don't think I have one that I can use for scallops. I will have to see what I do have and improvise. I sooooooo want a larger scallop punch and can't find one. This would work though if I have the right parts.
Nice layout!
