Ukscrappers stash busting challenge

Over on Ukscrappers there is a sub forum called inspiration and challenges. It is somewhere I frequent often, even if I don't have the time to actually scrap. In the sub forum there is a section called stash busting. I like many others am on a bit of a stash diet this year, I have a huge addiction to paper pads. I have the willpower to not go online and order, it's the TkMaxx and home sense that I struggle with. Anyway Nikki has set a challenge each month and it consists of 4 separate challenges each designed to make us use up that stash.

Challenge 1 (January - I am a bit late to the party) was to make a background using scraps. Well I was at crop last weekend and made a LO with these Pink Pasilee papers. As I was clearing my desk I came across them and thought they would be perfect for the challenge.

I have made a LO of my dog Bentley. He is a bit of a silly dog and wraps himself around my neck whenever I sit down. It was the perfect photo op. Excuse the very poor picture. I am not 100% on the LO I think I will leave it in my desk to see if I need to add anything - I am thinking some ink spots maybe?

Thank you so much for looking

  1. Stash busting is a good way to use up scrap & gets us motivated again I think & a good idea . Makes the old brain cells work a bit more when doing Lo's .

  2. Lovely layout, there's a lot of stash busting going on this year isn't there? I'm doing it myself, one kit delivered every other month and I can only buy albums and cardstock when I need them.
    Good luck and keep up the scrapping.
