This challenge has really inspired me: I readily admit that I LOVE buying craft stuff. I hunt out the stuff that's 50% off or on clearance normally which usually means I buy twice as much since I'm saving "so much money". As much as I love buying new toys to scraps with, I have to say I'm starting to feel like I ate too much birthday cake. It's sooo good but I'm getting a stomach ache, you know what I mean? So it's time to use my stash instead of just adding to it!
Therefore, I have resolved that I will not buy any new scrapping what-nots until I've made a sizable dent in my current stash. I will keep track of the days I haven't shopped at the top of my blog here. I have to say that I am excited to see how long I can hold out and how much I can create with what I have in that time! Now, I did just join a kit club (my first one ever) so that's a commitment I can't break. I've also already signed up for 2 classes at my local scrapbook store but other than those things, I will buy nothing else. No adhesive, no paper, no chipboard, no *gulp* Stickles...nothing, nada, zip!
So since the last time I bought something was this past Saturday, February 28th, my total days come to 3. If you'd like to join me, please comment and let me know! Maybe we can have a support line going! lol
In other news, here's my latest layout (using my stash thank you very much!):
Our dog Lebowski is always trying to love on Toot or, at the very least, horn in on everything we do! This time I was trying to take pictures of her and we ended up with him refusing to move until I included him in the pictures! lol I was trying to do a Toot layout with some different colors (than my usual all pink!).
I cut out some of the animals in the paper and accented them each with Stickles. I also Stickled random stars on the paper and used Lime Stickles on the title to bring it out from the background more. Thanks for looking and have a great day everyone!
