I generally don't care for papers that have the specific background images and you have to scrap around them. But this time I made an exception, for one I couldn't think of a way to cut it up and use it and for two...well it just seemed to work out okay for this layout. It isn't anything elaborate but it still works for me.

The Varsity cartridge is great for school type layouts and projects. I am thinking I need to use it to cut some material and make myself a sweatshirt of my Alma Mater but let's face it...it wont happen. And why wont' it happen?? BECAUSE I AM TOO LAZY! *okie is hoping her readers really are starting to understand how truly lazy okie is*.
I used Design Studio to hide contour on the stripes for the black layer. Since Carousel is a lite there aren't many options for layering and DS comes in handy for such things. Yes I know I can do it on the Gypsy but come on guys!! Ya'll know I don't like using that thing!
