Clumsily ripped blue jeans = Scrapbook embellishment!

About a year ago, I went to a crop with my friend, Christy, and we were some of the first people to arrive.  Christy is very picky about where she sits when we crop at this store, and there are two other women who crop at MLPA that are just as willing to fight to the death for goods seats as she is.  On this particular day, urged by Christy, I ran for the door, my scrapbook totes swinging in the wind, as fast as I could.  Well, the next thing I know, I'm flying through the air like a skinny-assed version of the Goodyear blimp, and my stash of My Little Shoebox mini letter stickers are fanned out on the concrete like a deck of playing cards held by a drunk frat boy in Las Vegas.  My jeans ripped.  My favorite pair, no less, and I was bleeding from knees and palms.  But as Christy remembers, "She just got back up and kept on running!"  And guess what?  We got the good seats. 

So, that was the end of that pair of pants.  Or so I thought!  Inspired by the challenge at Let's Get Shabby to embellish a page with denim and lace (I used lace transparencies), I made a flower of them!  And then I realized 5 minutes ago that I missed the deadline.  Damn.  Anyway, this was inspired by Lisa Harrolle's cute doggie layout at XOXO.  It's also for this month's challenge at Kraft it Up, Mission 38 at Mission to Create, and I used the March sketch at Crafty Sketches
