I love getting to do "just for fun" scrapbooking! And I love it even more when I have brand new product to play with! This layout has some older stuff...the background paper is Basic Grey Perhaps...but the diecut stickers came from my new CP Maggie Holmes collection kit (see yesterday's post), and the papers are from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection (which was a gift from a generous scrappy friend of mine!) This layout is also unique to me because the photos are actually from this year...2013! I am so so far behind in my scrapping that I find it difficult to justify getting recent photos developed when I have a plethora of them from years ago sitting around waiting to be used. But when I needed to get some photos developed for Santiago's Science Fair project last week, I just couldn't resist having a few recent ones printed out as well. Note to self though, I will not get them developed at our local Wal-Mart again...the color quality is way off the actual. But it was still fun to actually scrap photos from just two months ago!
This layout is for the current challenge at Scrap Our Stash. We were to use the provided sketch and dig into our stash to create a mixed alpha title (or journaling). I feel slightly guilty for using new product on the layout (afer all the, blog is about scrapping our stash right?), but since the background paper is pretty old, the banner was made from scraps and the title was from my stash, I do feel like I "scrapped my stash" at least a little bit lol.
