I'm Going To Be Okay

For those of you who aren't familiar with me, let me introduce myself...I'm a perfectionist. Crooked things make me itch, twinge, drive me crazy! I have been wanting this madness to stop, but honestly I don't know how.

I'm going to try to make this story short. Tonight I saw a layout challenge I wanted to try (my first challenge I might add). I went on up to my stamp room and picked out the perfect stamp set. I planned this card on Stampin' Up!'s grid paper (I'm not kidding), so I could achieve perfect spacing. I used the magical Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me with perfect placement of the stamps. Ta-da! The little flowers spaced apart perfectly! Next, I chose a greeting. I had a little difficulty with this because I wanted the perfect sized greeting. Love the stamp set Pursuit of Happiness, so I chose this greeting from that set, "Everything will be okay in the end. If it isn't okay, it isn't the end". I get out the Stamp-a-ma-jig, and do my SAMJ thang, lift up the stamp....it's crooked! Ack! Then a smile came over my face as I was thinking how ironic this saying was, so I left it.

Here is the challenge layout:

  • Pocket Silhouettes (111672) and Pursuit of Happiness (121907 wood/ 121970 clear) stamp sets.
