How Much Is Too Much?….

Hot on the heels of my post for Challenge #1 - Scrap Lift (see below!!) …Challenge #2 for this weekend on Shimelle’s ‘Something From {Almost} Nothing’ was to visit ‘How Much is Too Much?’ & choose a challenge to complete. Now, if you’ve never visited this challenge blog, I suggest you get over there post haste!! Anyone with a glut of stash will be inspired!! I went back over several weeks worth of challenges & opted for challenge #128 – ‘10x10x10’ I had to complete a LO & include 10 rub-ons, 10 buttons & 10 stars…it sounded reasonably straightforward, so I selected my photo’s & gathered together the required elements & this is what I came up with…3April2010 006 I’m actually very surprised that it doesn’t look more overcrowded than it does!!

The photo’s are of the boys looking cool in their shades, taken in Turkey in 2008! The PP’s have been in my stash since before that holiday, as well as the Anna Griffin rub-on ribbons, so it felt good to be putting them to use!! I commented in the forum that even with all the LO’s I’ve produced for this class, along with the projects for the BIA course, I’ve still not thought “Oh I must go out & buy xxxx before I run out” That speaks volumes!!

I will, however, be having a day out with my good friend Karen, next Saturday, to Ally Pally, for the ‘Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show’, & while most of my scrap budget is being saved for our forthcoming trip to Chicago (64 days & counting!!) I will be taking advantage of show prices for Adhesive tape, foam pads & other basics!…I think that’s allowed!!

BTW…If any of you are going along, be sure to wear a carnation in your buttonhole so we’ll know who you are!!!!

Thanks again for dropping by…it’s now nearly 3am, so I’m off to bed!!!

You are allowed to buy anything!I am in a generous mood...
My stash needs a serious refil,Its feeling very inadequate after Hilarys.Its a wonder I can even come up with LOs with my measly stash.
I hope you weren't eating easter eggs till 3am!

Hope you've not been too shattered today after your late night last night Sandi. Gorgeous layouts! Happy Easter :)
(Wish I'd noticed the show was on next weekend! I'd love to go on Saturday but have already agreed to visit the Ashmolean with my sister)
