Here are my 5 items I will be using:

Bazzill Rub-ons By MarKaren

I have been on vacation for the last week. Before I left I did manage to get one layout done.

I used the Bo Bunny chipboard and also the Bazzill rub-ons = Done!

What a pain in the rear both of these items were! The rub-ons didn't want to rub-on and the chipboard lost all of it's sticky back. I have to say this challenge is teaching me one thing. Quit buying so much sCrap if you are not going to use it right away! Yeah...like that's gonna happen in my life.

Got one done using the Push My Buttons.

Gone Fishin' By MarKaren

One more left to do. Hopefully and I can do a quick one tomorrow with my last item. I do have one more day, don't I?

10. Moni (MoniL) (0/5)

so I'd rather look through the store than work during lunch so here's my list:

- Tim Holtz mask.
- Making Memories tags (use at least 2)- I have no idea why I bought these.
- Heidi Swapp ghost shapes (use at least 2).
- Basic Grey journaling blocks (use at least 1) - I was disappointed with these so lets see how I do.
- Basic Grey pp (use a portion) - I have a really hard time working with big floral patterns so this will really be a challenge.

I guess my theme this month is to work with stuff that gave me buyer's remorse, lol!

************************* *************************

Update! - I'm finally back. I fell on labor day and sprained and broke my ankle along with busting both of my lips badly and chipping a tooth. I got to stay home (pretty drugged) for a couple of days but then once I had to start coming back to work, I was so exhausted by day's end that I haven't had any fun time. I'm still on crutches but my arms/shoulders aren't killing me as much and I'm only taking the pain med at night so I hope to finally wander back into my scraproom this weekend and get busy. As well as get caught up on the love for all of the fabulous work you ladies have been doing.

Hello everyone! I have used some of my supplies, but I have yet to take a pic of my layout and I'm leaving town in the next couple days. It's been a hectic month, so I apologize for not being totally participatory. I'm fully prepared to send off my unused goodies when I get back from my friend's wedding in California next week.
