Fabulously Fun Friday

The ScrapTiffany challenge this week was to use up scraps. Since I had just done a ton of projects from the 3 Scrappy Boys September add on kit, all I had left were scraps.

I couldn't part with them though because even scraps of Crate Paper's Restoration line are worth saving. So I decided to piece everything I had left together and stitch it down on some Kraft cardstock and this is what I came up with:

All the paper except for the Kraft base is a scrap leftover from previous projects! Yay! I love using up scraps rather than finding them piling up in the playroom lol!
I loved using scraps so much that I did it again on this layout. American Crafts is another company whose scraps I hoard ;) The fabric paper and the chikadees were piled in with my full sheets of AC paper.

Before I go I have to share some fun news. I got an email yesterday requesting a layout I submitted for publication in Scrapbook Trends magazine!! You could've knocked me over with a feather I was so shocked. My first thought was WAHOOOO. My second thought was uhoh, Little Miss is going to be SO jealous because the layout is of Little Man not her!! In any case, the layout will be in the March 2011 Showcase section. We are going out to dinner tonight to celebrate :) Thanks Scrapbook Trends, you've made this one FABULOUSLY FUN Friday!!
