Try as we may sometimes its just hard to keep at it and find the time to scrap layouts. So this year I have joined a wonderful motivational group over at Scrapbooking Haven led by the very lovely Lisa who has started a '52 Layouts' group and each week she puts up a challenge for us to help get our mojo going. This past week the challenge was 'Waste not, Want not' and we were required to use some form of discarded packaging. Excellent, we are always looking for ways to use up our stash and the pretty packaging it comes in :) and you got to love recycling!! so below is my take on Lisa's challenge.

I was happy I used some of my old papers from my huge stash! The photo is of my dd on Melbourne Cup Day and her school class were required to dress up, such a big event here in Australia, as they say "its the race that stops a Nation' :)

Glitz Design Paper, Bazzill, TH distress ink - black soot, Kaiser Bling, Bella Chipz Alpha's, Kaiser Blossoms and Manor House leaves.

I cut out a mini dress form from Prima Say it in Pearls packaging and used the Prima Say it in Crystals packaging as a photo backing mat.

Now to go see what Week three's challenge is, something about Collections! That should be easy with an ever growing stash and my addiction with Prima flowers and chipboard!

Have a lovely week, its off to the beach Today for us, looking forward to it! Thanks for stopping on by!
