The Biggest Loser

I'm participating in a contest over at Scrapbooks Deals 4 U called The Biggest (Scrap) Loser. It's a fun contest to lose your stash!!! We are supposed to use everything from our stash and each week is a new challenge. This is my week #1 entry. The challenge was to create a 1-page layout and use at least 4 of the following items: brads, buttons, ribbon, ink, number stickers, stickles, or 5 pieces of patterned paper. You also had to use at least 3 photos. And here is my entry! I used 5 pieces of patterned paper, ribbon, ink, buttons and stickles!!

Photobucket




The paper is by Cherry Arte and was in a kit I bought sometime last year. Felt good to open it and play a little bit!! And while I was at it, I also made 2 cards. WooHoo!!




Thanks for stopping by! I hope to using up more of my stash next week!!

Just adore this one Mara! Argyle pattern is my absolute FAVORITE!! I own so many pairs of Argyle socks and sweaters with that pattern! So OF COURSE I love those photos! Love the color combo very much and matches photos perfectly.
About my wall art, I got the vinyl from Michaels and Walmart. You need to be sure to get the transfer paper as well. I bought the cricut off the informercial so I got a DVD on how to work with the vinyl, but still managed to blow a roll of it before I got it figured out!!
