March Challenge

We thought that this month we would set a slightly different challenge, I am sure all of us are guiltly of having huge stash mountains a lot of which we have totally forgotten that we had, even though we desperately needed it at the time!
So our challenge to you is to create a page using up some of that old, forgotten stash that is lurking in your craft room. As always there is a great prize for the winning page, a £10 e-voucher and a chance to join the design team and create an example layout for the May challenge. All you have to do is post a link to your layout on the blog or email your page across to sarah@sarahscardsltd.com by Monday 12th April.
We have been joined this month by Tracee who was our winner in January, she has produced this lovely page.


A few of the design team have also created layouts using up some of their old stash.

We hope you enjoy this challenge and you never know you may find some stash that you totally forgot you had!

I used a retro photo from my teens to compliment the retro stash.

JUst to say thanks for this challenge - it's great to be made to use up old stash! I e-mailed my LO across to you.

Thanks for the idea. I've since had a good sort through my old stuff and found loads of great things I'd forgotten about. I've played along and my layout is here: http://littlemissscrapper.blogspot.com/2010/03/using-up-old-stash-part-one.html :)

I scrapped another with some bling that is so old I'm surprised it still sticks! The papers are about 12months old too. Hope it's ok to send another? Ignore my first post if it's not :)

I found some old Making Memories, AC, and Scenic Route papers, plus dug out a load of old embellies for my LO on my blog...

The only item on the page less than 6 months old (if not more!) was the letter stickers.
Love the DT's LO's. So inspiring!
