Everything Eleanor - NAC38 - PP137

I've been absent from blogging lately because I got spring fever. It was so nice outside that I liked to just go outside and sit with the dogs and a book or do a little yard clean up. I basically lost my drive to stamp. It has been a little chilly the past two days so I'm back.

I used a 1/8" Hand Held Circle Punch (retired item) to duplicate the look of the edge of the Postage Stamp Punch. I basically cut out 1/2 of the circle and moved it to the edge of the previously punched one to gauge the spacing for the next one.

2 Challenges: I used Nacho Average Challenge (NAC38) for the colors and The Paper Players (PP137) for the layout.
