Some days I wish I could empty the useless things I've got stored in my memory banks.  Maybe that would make room for more important things like where I put my keys down.  Right now I've got an old Irish Springs soap commercial bouncing around with a woman saying something like "Manly, but I like it too".  I don't think that will ever be something I'll need to know, I doubt it will even come up in a trivia game but there it is, stuck in my head. 

Here's the deets:
stamps - My Favorite Things "Inspired by the Sea" and "Inspired by Travel"
ink - Stampin' Up "Soft Suede"; Ranger "Walnut Stain"
paper - Stampin' Up "Kraft"; Recollections "Printed Scrapbook Papers"; Bazill "Admiral"
miscellaneous - Stampin' Up "Real Red" Marker; My Favorite Things "Oval", "Sweet Stack", "Sea Charms" die-namics; burlap twine; mini brads

Here's the challenges:
Top Tip Tuesday - One for the Men
Partytime Tuesday PTT#76 - Let's Get Punchy
Going Grey - Use Something Bought in the Last Two Months (new stamp set and sea charms)
Totally Stampalicious - Your Favorite Embellishment (I love to use charms)
Whoopsie Daisy - Make Your Own Embellies (charm made with a die)
Crazy for Challenges C4C144 - the Colors of Your Flag
Allsorts #162 - Red,White and Blue
Raise the Bar #108 - Red, White and Blue
