a couple layouts..

So I have decided that I need to start putting some of my pictures on paper..I have 4 boxes of pictures over the last 10 years of my boys!  I have stacks of scrapbook pages that I have already finished but really I have at least that many more that need to be done  (golly I take too many pictures!) ...sooo... I picked out a handful and went to work. This is a good way for me to use up my stash as I have a bad habit of hoarding kits for that perfect picture or layout to come along. But really what is the point of hanging on to them..they need to get used!!  So here we have a couple beach layouts with  photos from 2008 (gasp!) I love these pictures of the boys..beach pics are always my fave! Papers and embellishments are all by My Mind's Eye, breaking free collection.  Cardstock alphas by Basic Grey. ....   Now its your turn to dig out some of those old kits you've been hoarding and start downsizing all those pictures.  Unless of course you are one of those people that makes up your layouts as soon as your pictures arrive, if so then I'm totally jealous!!   :)

Stash Bash 2011

There is a challenge going on over at Scrapbook Place, Lindsy is challenging us to use our stash. The only item you can purchase for this challenge is adhesive...rofl..lucky for me I have a stash of that too. ;)  I have to be the worst paper hoarder EVER!  In fact I'm so bad that I have two bins of just scrap pieces that I didn't dare throw away in case I needed just a little piece for embellishing..heaven forbid you should have to cut up a 12x12 just for a little strip..haha! resolution for this year is to get rid of my scrap papers..ribbon snips..those single rhinestones. .etc. etc..and use that paper I've been hanging on to for the perfect picture to come along.  I have a 6ft.x4ft. pegboard filled to the max with embellishment packs that I HAVE to force myself to use.  Guess I better get busy, lol!    Soo  today I have created  several pieces from only 3 sheets of stash paper!  YAY!   This all comes from the DCWV Street Lace this paper!! hurts to use it..can you feel my pain !?!   So here is what I've done with it:

 A page kit..consisting of 3 photo mats, a journal card and an ATC for embellishing...I even used some pearls that were left over from another project ..and the clip that I have been hoarding.  heehee!  But I actually have a bag of those clips so I'm not stressing!
 And here we have two cards..all done up and awaiting a sentiment..I'm thinking these would be good Thank you cards..what do you think?  Drool, drool..that paper is to die for, you can't see in the picture but the Poppies on the paper are I cut them out and used them for embellishing. Won't you join me in the Stash Bash challenge and get to digging in your stashes...
