This is the layout I created that means even more to me now than it did when I started out. As I said I began creating it for the new Saturday S.W.A.T challenge which is to dig out some of your unused, old stash and revitalize and use it for a layout. I pulled out some old Basic Gray Pyrus line that I have had in my stash for several years now. I also pulled out some chipboard buttons from Jenni Bowlin. The yellow and white of the button were a little bright so I misted them with some coffee Tattered Angels mist to help it blend in some. The patterned papers and the fabric flowers were all Basic Gray and I added a Burlap flower from Little Yellow Bicycle and created a rosette to bring in newer looking pieces to the page.
I love that I got to use up some of my stash. Unfortunately it only created the smallest of dents in it! I know there's got to be more of you out there who have some beautiful papers and embellishments hoarded away... how about joining us in the challenge and using it this week. There is an awesome American Crafts prize up for grabs that you definitely need to add to your stash. Anyone in??
