its easy as ABC

Have the girls at Scrapbookers Anonymous got a great new challenge for you- the monthly stash challenge is still there but they have a new way to get you to use up your stash - the ABC challenge

Every month on the 15th they are challenging you to use a letter of the Alphabet to bust your stash- use up whatever manufacturers you have with that letter or be creative and use up a type of stash from that letter of the alphabet

So here we go with the letter A
I went with a totally American Crafts LO- nothing else used at all- I used a very old travel piece of paper- the back of an old Moda Bella paper and some halloween paper too. The travel paper was perfect to go with a Lo about our recent trip to the UK- because it was a trip back to look for new schools the company paid for us to travel business class- hilarious- because of the way the seats are arranged the boys had to sit together, I sat with Nancy and James on his own- the boys took to the business class like a duck to water- ordering their drinks and eating their food- however all three children were really enamoured by the tiny little cardboard box that held the salt and pepper pot- i had to steal one to photograph- it looked like a tiny little egg timer

I deliberately left the bar code strip on the bottom of the Lo because of the name of the paper ( actually I had to stick it on there because the paper was the moda bella paper) and I nearly ended up using another set of letters ( i was going to justify it by calling them an Alphabet) but i decided to coble together class from what I had so there are two 8s, one 7, one 4 and a Y

Why don't you give this new challenge a go- you have two weeks until the end of the month to bust your stash


  1. Karen, love this line of AC. and I didn't notice the bar code before. I like it.. =) I've often entertained that when I like the bottom strip.. you went for it.
    Have a great week.

  2. I love how you scrapbook about all the little things!!! Love this layout and great job with what I believe to be a difficult pattern! Oh and I also love that you left the bottom strip on!!!

  3. I love the design on this layout... super neat!!! hugs...xoxo
