WMSC #56 - Week of July 16, 2011 Purple Passion

 I hope everyone is having a great summer.  I am enjoying my "alone" time this week.  My kiddo's are off doing the things they like to do.  My son is at Ransburg Scout Reservation and my daughter is at University of Notre Dame for their Vision Program.  Imagine all the trouble I can get into!  It must be how they feel when I'm off shopping!  But I have a full 5 days!

WMSC-56I was stunned that I was the random winner of a stamp set for last week's sketch challenge!  I made a Thank You for this week to show my appreciation.  In case you're wondering what set I asked for - it's the Nutcracker Sweet.  I want ALL the WMS but whenever I order I tend to be more practicle and think about what images I will use most often.  This set fell to the bottom of my list because I figured I could only use it at Christmas time.   This set will be a real treat because I have wanted it since the first time I logged on to WMS!
 It's funny what gets you started on a project - on this one it was the tags stamped in the plum colored ink - everything else came after that until I had my finished product I'm calling purple passion!  What do you usually start with?  A color, a fabulous paper, an embellishment?
