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!

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.

Welcome Renee and Erin! STunning as always, Erin!
Renee, I cracked up at your to-save-your-children comment! My boy is finally mobile and I'm just waiting for him to go and topple my tower of supplies over! Talk about death by a thousand paper cuts!

Not quite a year, Tina, 9.5 months actually! He's getting more and more confident each day too - of course he has plenty of time to practice at daycare so that always 'helps'! The poor cats are still just faster than him, though not for long!

Heading out Sunday for 1 week in FL w/my in-laws. Should be a relaxing time at the resort plus Epcot & Universal. My fil has terminal cancer, he's 81, a Korean vet & that's where he wanted to go & he wanted to share it with us- so off we go

Mandi - Our older one is wise enough to just disappear if she doesn't want to be around my ds. The younger one... yeah she's not the sharpest tool in the shed, but she does seem to hover nearby whenever ds is on the floor like she's trying to keep an eye on him. (MOstly I think because she couldn't hear him coming after her!) Anyway, they've both been pretty good about this whole newcomer baby thing! (See my Bath Buddies page on our furry babysitter! LOL)

CHar - Oh that shoulds so fun! Sad he is terminal, but how fun that he wanted to go to those places with everyone. Will be a wonderful time I'm sure! Anyway, sounds like he's lived quite the life - how does he feel about this whole North Korea business? Safe travels and hope you packed your camera! (*snort* Like I need to remind a scrapbooker... )

Hi everyone from sunny FL - we're relaxing this afternoon- been to Epcot yesterday, Universal today. Will go back to Epcot tomorrow. My fil gets tired easy- that's okay because I'm feeling a bit whooped today too so I'm playing catch up on here

Sonja- he mentioned the current events, but didn't express an opinion- told us a couple stories about his time there- I guess I need to hit record on my cell phone & capture some of them. Even tho we've heard them many times, I wish I would have had sense to record my grandfather's stories when I was growing up as now I can't remember them much. So I'm concerned the same will happen with my fil's stories.

Here is mine!

By:Justowen

Everything on here is at least a year old. The newest thing is the twine. The REALLY OLD stuff is:

The page topper - I cut off an old piece of sb pp...remember these?...way back when we wanted the lo's to be totally flat and wouldn't dream of using felt and buttons, but we thought the look was so cool?

The frame is from a set of frames I ordered from one of the shopping channels...many, many long years ago!

See that ghost peeping around the pic? Anyone remember these?! I forget what they were called, something like 'peepers', I think. I'm shocked the adhesive still works! They bought in my very early years of scrapping.

Oh, and the pic.....that boy will be 19 years old next month...the pic might have been around for a 'few' years.

Film Noir By NMscrapper

Here's one I did today. Everything you see, except the title rub-ons and filmstrip, have been packaged together and forgotten for a long time. I don't know whether you would call this hoarding or being scared to death of working with the heavily ornamented papers and embellies, LOL!
