The Scrappy Supplies Hoarder, you know who you are! (And, be honest, we're all guilty of it at one time or another!) Do you have one or two (or more!) coveted papers or paper lines that you just can't cut into?! How about a pad of papers you haven't touched, but had to have? Do you have a special package of embellies you simply refuse to use? Well this challenge is for you! Your challenge is to step up, admit to your hoarded supplies and USE them!

*Rules*
Here's what to do to enter:
1. Bite the bullet and create a page, card or project with a supply item (or two, or three) that you've hoarded for at least a year. Your hoarded 'supply' could be anything - embellishment, paper, an old Cricut cartridge you bought, but never used.
2. Post your project here for us to all cheer you and clap you on the back!
3. List the hoarded items you used with your post so we can go search our stash for them!

April Twist: Let's continue with the Spring cleaning theme, but add something new. On top of digging down into your old supplies, rummage through your old photos this month. I don't know about you, but I have a zillion photographs to be scrapped (we call them our BB pictures - Before Baby). So I'm challenging everyone to pick an old photo - or two, or three - and scrap them. Keep in mind, this doesn't have to be an heirloom family photo, just a favorite photo or two that you've wanted to scrap, but just haven't found the time, motivation, energy, products, whatever.

Note: This is a fun challenge and not meant for competition - just challenging us to use those most coveted treasures we've held onto and get a little love in the process! Feel free to enter at any time this month and as often as you like! We all spend our hard-earned money on fun goodies, it's time we used them!

I will do my best to keep the front updated with everyone's work, but don't let that stop you from continuing to create and break out your hoarded goodies!

My Example:
coming soon... I hope!

Now, let's see those projects!

I just created this for the Round Robin challenge and realized that it will fit here! I dipped into my stash of June Bug papers and embellies.

I may have signed up for too many challenges this month, but this one really inspires me to use up stuff. I am saving it just in case:)

Is it too late to join? I recently had a reality check on how much scrapbooking stuff I have. I moved the beginning of October last year and I am still trying to organize and arrange. I really, really need help and motivation to use what I have.
