Confession

This is supposed to be about using up OLD stuff isn't it? So could someone please tell me why I ended up in Hobbycraft yesterday buying NEW things? For a start, this prompt was about transparencies. I have none. Even if I did, I'm not sure that I would be able to fashion them into anything attractive. So I found myself looking at vellum. Oh, here's a pretty one, the design on it reminds me of the circular window in the Notre Dame in Paris. Oh, I have a photo of that at home .... Oh my goodness, look at that pretty butterfly cutter. Lots of people have used butterfly cutters on their pages and I could really use one of those. Oh look, and here's a pair of scissors with a curved scallop edge to them, that would look good round the circular print on the vellum. And so, here is my page using (ahem) lots of things I already had - like purple card stock, photo of me in front of Notre Dame taken on my 50th birthday, silver ink pen ... and a couple of new bits :-)

It was worth it - what a fab layout :-) And I thought the point of the class was to clear space for new supplies? ;-)

LOL! I went to Michael's to buy art supplies, and it took all my will power not to buy one of those fabulous border punches! I was actually very good.

Great Layout Deb. Don't worry about purchasing new stuff, as Mel said you have made some room now!
