Took a Mental Health Day

  This past week was beyond hectic. Luckily, I knew it would be so planned accordingly... the grands were here a lot and I was working a lot so subsequently my house is a WRECK! I got home from work at 11 this morning intending to clean some but decided instead that a little playing was the order of the day. So hours later I have a layout and a still messy house and  a very messy craft cave ..... now it is time to cook dinner and make even another mess. UGH!!
   I used this sketch # 84 from My Scraps and More

I was determined to add texture to my page. I see all these awesome layouts and they all have texture in common so I am on a quest to learn how to do it and make it work.
I made my own texture paste and tinted it brown. I tried cutting a template but it was not turning out the way I wanted so ended up using my Heidi Swapp stencil.

I used MTCand a google image for the tree trunk cuts.
The title is also Heidi Swapp epoxy.
I added Stampin up rub ons to some wood banners and also the Birds of a Feather papers are Stampin up..... and once again the gorgeous grunge stamp set.
  Thank you so very much for stopping by and watching me try to use texture paste lol the adventure continues.
Hope today your blessings are many!
