      I am a hoarder! I buy scrap items that I just have to have- I will die without them! Then, I put them in a box or with the rest of my stash, and there they stay. I don’t use the most beautiful embellishments and papers because I love them so much, and I’m afraid if I do, I might not have it for the perfect page at some point. I say, “ENOUGH”! I need to start using these cherished items. So, I have decided that I will pick out 5 things that I am hoarding every month and use them.
      Here they are:

      I bought the stick pen and the flower ring from Angelica’s etsy shop months ago; the piece of paper and rub-on are some of the things I bought on my first trip to my lss over two years; and the bicycle I had to have when I saw Robin do a layout with probably over a year ago. I will use all of these things by November 30th.
      Does anyone else want to join me in challenging yourself to use your most prized scrappy goodness? No prize or winner, except for the satisfaction that you are using what you buy. Take a pic of your stuff you want to use and post it, then show us your work when you use it by November 30th.

            I'm sure that will happen! That's usually why I go shopping for these special items because other ladies have them!

              I will try, Rae! It is a great idea! I am a horrible scrapbooking hoarder! I always have the have the newest, prettiest stuff and then don't use it! I can go back YEARS! Great challenge! Now if I can just find some time in between hunters, doctors appts. and jury duty! I think the talk of jury duty a couple of weeks ago jinxed me! I got called for the first time ever!

                    LOL! I do love dies too! I don't have that many, but I covet many.
                    What I do have a lot of, and I really should use them is mini-albums and altered pieces. The last time I counted, I had over 20 albums/ boxes/ frames, etc. that are waiting to be used.
