CASology Staples

It’s Tuesday and you know what that means!  It’s time for a new CASology cue word!

This week’s word should provide plenty of happy thoughts for our participants.  Who doesn’t like silver?!

Once again, my warped creative mind slipped off its rocker and went with the less obvious.  Given the number of staples my two oldest boys go through these days, however, it’s probably no wonder I went this route.  Who knew paper airplanes could fly with stapled wings?!

Anyone who has been bitten by the creative bug knows that a black stapler is kind of…well…boring (if I dare say it)!  Practical?  Yes.  A pink, sparkly stapler seemed much better in my mind, so I colored it with some aqua painters found close to File 13 in my craft room & covered it with sparkle using…you guessed it…my Wink of Stella brush marker.  Fussy cutting was a given.

I hope you’ll visit the design team blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blog!  They work so hard to come up with ideas to get the new challenge going each week!
