Chalk it Up! for Madge's Scrappin' Lounge

Looking for the Timeless Twine & My Scrap Chick post?  It's HERE:

I have a confession to make.  I made a resolution to not buy any scrapbook paper this year.  So far, I'm sticking to it.  But, I was feeling the need to add SOMETHING to my scraproom.  Thank goodness for Scrappin' Madge and her embellishment club!

The first month's embellishments arrived last Thursday.  I opened them with great excitement....then froze.  Everything was for the chalkboard craze.  And, since I'm being honest here, I haven't jumped on the chalkboard band wagon. Well, I guess it's time. But, I have no chalk, and every single embellishment said, "just add chalk".  Well, well.  I'm creative, I thought, "work with it." So I did.

I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, then smeared some white ink around to make it look like a chalkboard.  The round button is another embellishment from the kit.  And, I had FUN!  Now, I'm INTO this chalkboard craze! The Elegant Floral beneath the round button is from Pinque Peacock, made with ribbon from 3 Girl JAM. The sentiment is from a Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit, "Forever Friends". Papers are My Mind's Eye 6x6 Collectable "Unforgettable" paper pad.
So, Check out Scrappin' Madge's Embellishment Club for yourself. Here's the info if you're interested in joining:
