8 Year Old Paper!

Ok, here's a picture of the page that I have completed that best meets my New Year's Resolution. All the paper I used on this page I've had since 1998! I got it at D.O.T.S (now called Close To My Heart) party that I had. That bright turquoise is not a color that I would normally use. The hot pink I think is from Stampin' Up from about the same time period. Or, it could be Creative Memories. Either way, it's still around that same time. The lime green came in the same pack as the hot pink. The Rick-rack ribbon & black with white polka dot ribbon are actually new this year BUT I didn't buy it. A friend mine gave it to me. Her hubby works for Me & My Big Ideas so she gets lots of free stuff. She gave me a whole bunch of stickers, paper, & ribbon!!! Such fun!

3 Pages

Well, I've done 3 pages since Friday night. I went to Craftin' at the Creek on Friday night. The 3rd Friday of every month our church holds Craftin' at the Creek. You can bring whatever craft you are into & sit & visit with the other ladies. We work until no one can keep their eyes open! A couple months ago, we stayed 'til 1:30am! Most everyone that comes are scrappers but sometimes we have a knitter, sewer, or cross-stitcher. It's always great fun. I did a 2-page layout Friday night & a 1-pager, yesterday. After, I get done blogging, I am going to at least start on another one. I really wanted to post some pictures with this post but, that didn't happen. Oh, well. I will post as soon as I get them uploaded! So, keep watching. All the kids are napping so I will make this short so I can crop for awhile!!

So, Now What?

Ok, so I am going to try this whole "blog" thing. Not quite sure what I'm doing or why. Just thought this might be a fun way to challenge my scrapping buddies near & far and to keep in touch with some of my long-distance friends. Please let me know what you think of my blog. I will try to update at least weekly but no guarantees! I'll try to put a picture or two on, as well.

For those of you that scrap or stamp, I will also use this as a challenge board. I want to post challenges here often & then I'll post my outcome of the challenge. You can join me in the challenge or just follow along & laugh at my (sometimes sad) attempts! ;o)

I don't normally make New Year's Resolutions. However, this year I made one that involves scrapping & stamping & it is two-fold. My resolution was this: a) not to purchase anything new (unless it is specific to a project); and, b) to try to use up a good portion of my "stash" (some of which dates back to 1997-whoa, almost 10 years!).
