Scrap Our Stash OCTOBER Word Challenge "INKS"

Hi Everyone!!  Lots of Inspiration and Creativity going on this month over at the Scrap Our Stash Blog !

It is time for our "WORD" Challenge of the month and while it may look nice and easy since it is a short one - it might be a bit of a challenge for you -BUT that is what makes if FUN!!  You get to dig through your "STASH" - kind of like a Scavenger Hunt!  So get ready to play along with us!!

This month's word is "INKS"

I will admit that I did find the letters "I" and "N" a bit of a challenge - BUT I did find some yummy "stuff" while searching through my "STASH!" 

Here are the items that I used for the Challenge:
I- Ink (for edge distressing)  and Graphic 45's Garden Isle paper from Tropical Travelogue
N- Net ( love this - I stapled it on!)
K - Key, Kaisercraft Sandy Toes Collection "Sea Shells"
S - Staples, Starfish, Stickers, Seashells

Here is my Inspiration Layout:

This is a photo from our 2012 Disney Wonder, Hawaiian Cruise. It was taken on the ship, just after we returned from an AMAZING excursion along the Breathtaking Na'Pali Coastline.  It is a day we will never forget!  I am really happy with how this layout came out.  I LOVE the Bright Blue mats with the off white Starfish paper, and I couldn't resist combining some my Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Collection. colors together with them.  Since this was a Disney Cruise, I had to add a few Mickey's to the layout too!  There are 3 of them - can you find them?

Here are some close ups for you too!:

Love the starfish and seashell paper - also, maybe I should have counted the 5 letter "i"s in Nawiliwili, Kauai as one of the components of the challenge LOL!

I covered a chipboard heart with a G45 sticker, and I love the sweet little 3D fish, and the anchor paperclip in this grouping.

Here you can see how I stapled the netting onto the page, and maybe you can spot a "not so hidden" Mickey too!

We had a very "WONDERful" time celebrating our 30th Anniversary on this Amazing 14 night Disney Wonder Hawaiian Cruise.  It is a trip we will always remember!

I hope this inspires you to come play along with us at the Scrap Our Stash Blog - Don't forget, you have until October 31st to LINK UP!  I can't wait to see what you will create!!
