On the Border

So, this weekend didn't exactly net a mass of creative output!  Just one lonesome layout that i put together on Sunday afternoon.  I spent the majority of the weekend scratching.  I appear to be allergic to these nasty midgee things that have decended on the town as a result of all this rain we have had of late.  To treat these saucer sized hives (and no.... i'm not exaggerating!), i took two doses of phenergan (at the prescribed interval).  Unfortunately, phenergan rendered me unable to get out of bed on Sunday morning!

So, i stopped taking phenergan, had a go at the latest KIU challenge... and i'm still itchy! 

Just in the nick of time, i managed to put this together.  Kraft (of course) and using decorative borders somehow in the layout.  i used some border punches on a heap of scrap paper and layered them in a peek-a-boo style to produce this:





As we will be turning the calendar over this week to December, i'll be putting my December Daily album to use!  Looking forward to it and hope you'll follow our progress
here and over at The Boxx.

Thanks for stopping by.

Have you stopped itching yet??? Poor girl.
This is a great idea for the KIU challenge. I didn't join in this month because I just couldn't think of something original. This is awesome.
