OK, so I admit it. I love new scrappy supplies. There, I said it......but who doesn't love the smell of new paper!?! C'mon! I know it isn't just me :)
Well, I've been inspired by one of Melissa's posts over at The Scrappy Jedi and I'm resolved to join her in 2013! I've purged a great deal of my stash this year, but I still have enough for 5 lifetimes of scrapbooking! Its time to start using it up!
Most of what I've kept after the purging are items that i know I'll use, I just havent' gotten around to it yet. (as opposed to before the purge, hanging onto items I know I'll never use!)
So the Stashbusting began early, with a long weekend visit with my BFF Kristine! We sat at my kitchen table for 4 days and scrapped our brains out! It was awesome!!!
I dug out two older Studio Calico kits and almost killed them, and lots of older Cosmo Cricket stash!
This is my favorite layout of the weekend :)
The photo was taken about a week before Fleur passed away....Brontë had never, ever...like EVER cuddled with another cat but Boogie. I thought it was adorable how she let Fleur get so close to her. At the time, I thought perhaps she needed the cuddles...but now, maybe she thought Fleur was the one who needed comfort. Who knows....
