I've a confession to make, I've been scared of rub ons...completely petrified! I've had a set from the catty for some time and I ordered the SAB ones as one of my freebies back in the beginnning of SAB. They've been sitting, taunting me from the shelf. Today, last minute Lucy that I am at times, needed to make a small hostess thank you for a little get together in a few hours down at the school district. I decided that today I would face my fear.
A little story, while at CHA, Shelli Gardner, yes, that Shelli Gardner, popped into the Scor-Pal booth after being told by her people to come and have a look. Don't read anything into this, I've no idea or speculation on this. She stayed and chatted for quite some time with us, we talked about SU! product and how the Scor-Pal works, they loved seeing SU! images and papers on some of the projects. The topic turned to rub ons and I said I was a bit terrified to use them as they are a one shot deal, no do overs. It was Shelly who said try them, but use your bone folder to apply the pressure, not the popsicle stick that is provided.
Well I did, on both counts. Why was I so chicken? Fear of the unknown can certainly play with your mind, eh? Sheesh, they are wonderful. Rub ons will never take the place of stamping for me, but I can certainly see the possibility in them now.
Anyway, that's my story today and the pic is nothing special, but I just wanted to share the picture of the project that conquered my fear! :)
