FM103 It's Tax Time!

Time for another Friday Mashup.  It's almost tax time!  I'm not an accountant; why am I so excited?!  In honor of tax day, use notebook paper or spreadsheet/balance sheet paper on your project.  Even graph paper will work.  If you don't have any laying around, you can also create your own paper with a ruler, marker and white card stock.  Let's add some distressing to dirty up your paper.  It's been a rough all-nighter with the taxes, hasn't it?

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "Lined paper (Notebook, Graph, Spreadsheet etc.)".
  2. Create a project that has a "Distressed appearance".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Lined paper that's Distressed looking".
Wow, I tripped myself up with my own challenge.  Grrrrr!  Several different times I've sat down to try and make a math-type project, for pi day for example, and they never seem to work out.  Perhaps my brain knows this is unfinished business.  I hope you guys come play with some great ideas to inspire me!

Here I went with the all-nighter school theme.  After spending 10 years in college, I don't have any problems remembering those days.  My niece will be graduating from college soon, and she is an accountant.  I made this one with her in mind.  :)

I grabbed Freshly Made Sketches #1 for this challenge.

Stamps: Feel Goods, Sip by Sip, Tassel Time; Paper: Summer Starfruit, Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Comfort Cafe DSP, Newsprint DSP, Watercolor paper; Ink: Soft Suede, Whisper White craft, Versamark, Black Stazon, Summer Starfruit, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede markers;  Accessories: White colored pencil, White embossing powder, Sponges, Paper clip.

Thanks for stopping by!
