Hi! the idea for this challenge was born out of a desire to help use up the scraps I've been hanging on to for a long time. Of course, i've been trying to use them here and there on lo's, but rather than watching the pile dwindle, its still growing!

This is a very simple challenge. This challenge is a challenge in itself: to use up your scraps- on every project you make- for the entire month. There's three prerequisites to this challenge:

1) use your scraps on every project you complete. The scraps don't have to be paper, they can be left over add-ons from a kit, extra sticker letters that need to be used up, bits of material from other projects...use your imagination! The project can be anything- OTP, layout, card, mini...the list goes on...
2) create a link to this page of your finished project(s), so we can admire your creativity and the work you put into your projects, and
3) leave comments on the finished masterpieces of the participants involved; in order to get love, you've got to give it first!

Last, but not least, have fun!

Participants:

1) Twinlets Mama {Alison}
2) Marcilb {Marci}
3) Nannyfeb {Barbara}
4) Scrappitydee {DaLynn}
5) Heather N
6) charcats7 (Char)

I wish I could do this challenge, because I love the heart of it.

Unfortunately (?) I work in a scrapbook store, and I have to feature new product on six to seven projects a month. I just can't commit to using scraps on EVERY project.

:-(

I'm just wondering- should this just remain an on going challenge, without posting every month, or keep it as is? Your input would be great!

CO was a good trip- sad- but good. My FIL doesn't have much time left I think. I am expecting our next trip to be the funeral. Cancer is evil.

Yes- he is in pain- they went to a Dr appt on Friday- doc said he could now feel the cancer when pressing slightly on his abdomen. Dr asked if he wanted quality or quantity- my FIL chose quality & so they cut his chemo in half. It's only been a couple months since they detected it- they wouldn't give an estimate of time- this cancer is rare- they just don't know. But I think he feels he's lost this battle. He spent most of our visit over 5 days sleeping. The longest he was up at any one time was an hour I think. He's an amazing man & has conquered so much over his 81 years. He joined the Marines at 16- turned 17 while deployed to China. Joined the Army after that and deployed to Korea as an infantry scout- he was 1 out of 200 of an original 1000 men in the BN he went with. After that he joined the Air Force. He's fought several serious illnesses, several heart surgeries, and now this. On Saturday after a BBQ where all my DH's siblings & their families came- as they were leaving, my FIL turned to my DH and in a low voice said "take care of your mother" and then went and laid down. He'd always told my DH he should be an officer- well he knows Cary made Warrant & even tho he didn't say it- I know he's proud of him. The only one of his 4 kids to go into the Military. And even tho we are out of state- we are the most capable to help out when they need us. Crazy. Maybe it's a good thing I'm an only child as I can't stand my DH's sisters. I hate dealing with them & their petty quarrels between them.

Anyway- enough of that- this Saturday is SCRAP Day at my house & I'm planning on getting some scrapping of scraps done!!!
