Going Old Skool

Instead of doing the housework yesterday, I ended up scrapping! :) I was looking through my stash trying to find the right embellies for what I was working on. I realised that I have a whole heap of old stuff that I don't really use on my layouts anymore - things like paper flowers, ribbon, ric-rac and buttons. So I challenged myself to use some of them up.

I have used Echo Park 'For The Record' papers and stickers, a little Bella Blvd paper and some Cosmo Cricket chipboard. I've added a My Little Bit of Whimsy bug. And I pulled out some paper flowers, doodled around the edges and popped a brad in the middle:

I've used up some ric-rac and a couple of playing cards. And there is some paint in the background.

It felt good to be using up some old stuff. I really need to do it more often. ;) Thanks so much for stopping by...


  1. that is so cool Lauren :) I'm the same though, have a million things and don't use them
