Scraptastic Challenge

Papertrey Ink is hosting a use your scraps challenge. I have to say that when I have leftover paper I tend to punch it in to lots of shapes (full disclosure- I did con my husband and his parents into helping punch my last load of scraps. :) ). I bag everything by color and leave it in the 12x12 boxes that I store my 12x12 paper.

I think in color, so all my supplies are sorted in a rainbow, paper, ribbon, flowers, brads, etc. I've tried lots of other approaches, but the rainbow thing is the only one that works for me. When I saw this challenge, I grabbed my pink bag and whatever was left on my table. I even found a leftover stamped image from the Vintage Picnic set! All I had to do was look at the supplies in front of me and run with them.

I colored the picnic basket with my prisma pencils and then added some stickles for sparkle. I still had my holiday buttons on my craft table so I added a little button bling too!

The cutie patootie cardigan corgi in the back is my loyal wingman Cadfael (pronounced Cadfile). He was in the midst of deciding if he should stay with me or investigate what was going on in the kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to spread New Year cheer and post a comment. I love to hear from everyone!
