Scrap Card

Posted by Picasa
I made a promise to myself that I am going to make a serious effort not to buy any retail items before "shopping" in my scrapbook room. I have been a good girl and the only purchase I have made is one Riley Moose Valentine stamp and I can't wait till he gets here! Anyway, back to my commitment ....It isn't going too swift so far but I won't get discouraged. I need to clean and organize this week so I can get a visual inventory and I think it will be better after that. I am going to crop this weekend and I have 9 cookie recipe books to make from our Christmas Cookie Exchange and they will be made entirely from items I already have. This will be a challege! The card above is made from scraps and it is ehhh, OK.  It looks like a valentine but I will use it tomorrow for an anniversary card for my awesome husband Mike. 1-11-10 is our 24th anniversary. I could scribble "I love you" on a piece of scratch paper and he would save it forever so he will certainly be pleased with this.  I am a blessed girl!

You are way too young to be married 24 years! You must have been a child!

I, too, was trying to use what was on hand. Alas, I bought yet another pad of paper and today I have already decided to buy more paper. Do I have a problem that needs a program? Paper Collection Syndrome...?
