gotta love the layers...

Created this for Simon Says Stamp and Show...been LOVING their challenges!  Forces me to stretch my creative wings a tad!  this challenge was to show layers...and let me tell you...i'm pretty sure EVERYTHING in this little mini-book is layered...ink...stamps...grunge...chipboard...paint...layer upon layer!  had a blast making it!  that's it for me today...we replaced flooring in the house (well in part of the house) over the weekend...so I'm sore...tired...and well...ready for bed!   have fun!
