For the Love of Boots!

I have recently come across a challenge blog that I am falling in love with. These Are a Few of my Favorite Things is a challenge blog that prompts you to create LO's around things that you love. Well, when I saw the current challenge that highlights your favorite shoes....how could I NOT play along?! I mean seriously....SHOES! This girl LOVES her some shoes! I already had the perfect pair in mind too, my favorite boots in the world, my Sugar Rhapsodies. So many people think they are ugly, I mean seriously ugly, but to me they are patch worked, over stitched, sequin covered, flowered, leather goodness that make my feet glide as they hit the ground. Every step I take is more enjoyable because I am taking those steps in these boots! I will admit, before I started scrapbooking, I too, would have looked at these boots and thought they were a bit 'out there', but as my Sister-in-Law puts it I am now 'scrapbooting' lol

I used Sketch Inspiration's sketch #126 as inspiration for this LO. It turned out quite different than the sketch , but the base is still there! Also I took on the color purple for the first time EVER in a LO. The color intimidated me so I felt the need to try to conquer that fear and go for it. Little did I know that out of all the paper I have I only owned 1 (yes one) piece of purple paper! I didn't realize my fear of scrapping with the color ran that deep. *sigh* Take that purple!

If you have a little extra scrappy time on your hands like I did then head on over to These are a Few of my Favorite Things and play along. Julie has lined up 500 million sponsors, OK more like 27, but that's still a lot. Not to mention they just got published for the first time AND they are celebrating their 1 year anniversary! Awesomeness, right? So head on over and play along!
