This layout was made for the oval challenge. I usually do not use ovals, so I had quite a few left in my stash.
Few weeks ago I saw that Jenni Bolwin Design Team is hosting an online crop. I love online crops, I love challenges and I love Jenni Bolwin so I decided to jump in. The crop was lots of fun. The
DT members posted challenges and we had a week to complete them (except for the timed challenges). You can see the challenges here (I think you will need a ning account for that). I made quite a few layouts. I am not going to list the supplies as I always do. For all my layouts I used old Jenni Bolwin kits.
This first layout was made for a timed challenge. We had to use a favorite/inspiring quote. It took me 10 minutes to read the challenge, 15 minuted to browse the given links to pininterest looking for a quote, 15 minutes to convince Eli to stop crying and let mama scrap. That left me 20 minutes to make the layout, take a picture and upload it. I am showing you the picture I took the next morning. Believe me the original was not pretty.
I was glad to dig into my stash and use some of the kits. Jenni Bolwin kit was the only subscription kit that I had. I stopped the subscription last year in my efforts to cut my scrapboooking expenses and to use up what I already have. Meanwhile I collected 3 years of kits.I love them so much that I can't take them apart. My layouts don't use lots of product so those kits last forever for me. I finally made a decision to take apart kits that don't have at least one full sheet of cardstock or paper left. Notice I said - "made a decision", I didn't say "took apart". I don't know why it is so difficult :) So what do you do with older kits? Do you keep them? Take them apart? Do you have a system?
I will post the rest of my layouts from the crop later this week. I am planning another post tonight. Stay tuned :)
