Design X

I came across this website with really cool challenges, Design Experiment.
The DT work are awesome!
I decide to try and play this time.
Indulgence... well, I have lots of them. Surely I can scrap something... and this topic has been in my little black book... i have been wanting to do a page on this. What a perfect opportunity!
Concept: I took photos of my bags (indulgence) and decide to do a 8.5x11 page. Added paint so I could do some journal....... but I choose a pretty Chatterbox green flocked as the matting.. I love this paper. I want some green because Kate Spade corporate colour is green. I had the polka dot brown background because the lining of most KS bags are polka dots. Totally fun!
The funny story: Choosing of the fabric brad at the top left corner.
It was hilarious.
I went thru all my 4 pkts of brads and one by one.. see which one fits.
Then I didn't like it... I felt like Mr. Bean .. the epsiode where he was choosing which shirt to pack for his beach vacation. He could not decide.. ......... so he started numbering each shirt... chose a number ......... but he still does not like it. LOL....
I was like him.. I went thru all the brads, placing them on the LO... in the end.. guess what..
i choose the 1st one I pick up. Note to self: Trust your first choice.... dont waste time!
Journaling: My darling husband really indulge in me. Once a year, he'll buy me a Kate Spade bag, though he does not believe in spending a few hundreds on a silly bag. He calls me Ms Octopus.... I must have many arms to carry so many bags. The indulgence for myself is to allow him to indulge in me. Top up my emotional bank account. It expires every year on 1st Feb (my birthday)
