Using my stash

I'm a little ashamed to admit that I've been neglecting the May Flaum class that I am taking over at BPS, going back to work has really interrupted my craft sessions,but I fully intend to correct that in the next week.

Today I chose to use a photo I had been meaning to scrap for a long time. It's a picture of the husband and I taken back in June. I like this photo as we both look totally relaxed and neither of us is blinking or pulling a silly face. The challenge that I used for it was to create a page on plain cardstock and use no patterned paper at all. Any patterns had to be created by stickers, stamps or embellishments. I picked out a box of 'bits' from the cupboard and decided that I would only use whatever offcuts I had saved from previous projects in there. I'm not a great stamper or rub-on girl but I liked the finished result using these things to create the pattern on it. Maybe I need to revisit the stamp shelf at the local craft shop .....
