Well, my friends. I did a LITTLE card for today. But I was not happy with it.....then I saw an idea for pegging photos, which inspired me, just as I was ripping the top off a cardboard box. At that moment it was the box I was keeping - not the lid....but then, DING went the bell in my head. THE LID!!! 
My project was born. Well, not quite 'born'....I had to MAKE it first:):)
Here's what I started with:



Like I say, I ripped the edge before I intended to use it....ooops!
And for the contrast. Here's my finished PHOTO HOLDER!


So now, when I'm scrapping, my photo will NOT get lost under a pile of JUNK on my desk...


 ...no matter how many or the orientation of them! They will NOT get smudged, damaged.....


...or covered in glue! And best of all they're still close by & easy to remove!!! Winner all round:)


This project needed a 'backing' for behind those windows:


Those WORDS needed covering up.....


And since I'm on a drive to use up those transfers & rubons...I went 'to town' & popped them everywhere! 


The washi & rubons I used to cover up that ripped edge at the bottom...


Even the bird is a transfer - onto white card stock then fussy cut out! I hope you enjoy using pegs in your project this month here at LESSology.....& BTW...would you like to see the card I rejected? ...If I don't show you, you'll always wonder about it, right? It took AGES too, because I do NOT like stitching:


So, this month you've gotten 2 ideas in 1!!!
Happy scrapping now ~Lizzy ♥♥♥
