1.


2. take your colour scheme from this photo (taken in Keukenhof Gardens, Amsterdam)


3. as a stash-busting exercise, i challenge you to use three things that you collect but don't often use. this can be tools or supplies.

4. YIR - use at least one photo without people.

5. pick one of your old cards to remake - it can be unfinished, not up to scratch, given away or just plain old. make a new one!

6. make a one-layer Christmas card - it'll save you postage. Wink

The new Kaisercraft 'Be-YOU-tiful' collection would be great for that second challenge. Gorgeous photo!

Have you got something finished too, Karen? I have just taken photos of my four YIR pages that I've done this morning. Now, to get them down-and-up-loaded, then onto the housework which I've sadly neglected this morning while being creative.

Toni, I'm so very pleased to be able to sit and scrap. I just checked the calendar and I taught for 17 of the 19 school days last month. I was sick for the long weekend and had no mojo at all during or after that. It's holidays here now, and all I want to do is scrap! How wonderful it is that I can do so. Smile

I totally agree Kathy! I must admit I have done all my chores so can sit for a little longer, I have even run some errands for dh this morning, DD was up before 10am today so we were out the door before 9am Wink
