A couple of days ago, Krista decided to join Cathie on her regular Monday post about using up her stash. Since I was working on a LO using super old product I asked if I could crash the party too and Cathie’s first Bash Your Stash blog hop was born!

I had this hilarious picture of Mr.G from Halloween, with an equally hilarious story to go along with it and had to scrap it, even though holidays are my most hated scrapbooking events. Unfortunately, this hatred does not extend to paper and so I have quite the collection of Halloween paper that is wasting away in the Scrap Cave. Time to put it to use!

As you can see, I’ve also been playing with layers. I love the look of them but it’s never been the way I scrapbook and so I struggle with it. But I think I’m starting to get the hang of it!

I really bashed the stash on this one – the papers are from Scenic Route, Carolee’s Creations for AdornIt, Scrapworks, and Making Memories. I also threw on some Scenic Route chipboard, word stickers, and rub-on arrows. I really want to use this stuff up!

There are some new things – a bit of washi tape, a flair badge, and those “so awesome I have them in every colour” October Afternoon letter stickers:

But overall, it’s old, old stuff. I mean, I know Scenic Route is long gone but I couldn’t even find paper for AdornIt or Scrapworks when I searched. Are they still around? Anyone?

If you want to check out some more amazing LO’s, make sure you go see what Cathie and Krista did with this challenge today. All of our styles are so different that it’s fun to see our work together!
