Hi friends and fellow crafters! I decided last minute to enter the weekly challenge at the Circle Blog this week. I have a few crafty resolutions and one of them is to enter the blog challenges as often as I can. I would also like to try to get a project published in one of the many magazines I subscribe to. I think that would be a blast! My biggest resolution is to Use My Stash! I have waaaay too much stuff.  I created this 12x12 scrapbook page in honor of the first round of Using My Stash 2012 thread at the Circle. I participated in two rounds last year and loved it. It kept me within a budget and I found I was very inspired by my fellow participants. When January 1st came around, we decided to start a new round and have some very talented crafters enjoying creating great projects with our stash.

All the paper is from K&Company. I have had this stack for so long, that the cover fell off, so I don't even know what line it's from! LOL!
I used my Gypsy to design the page, The letters are from Kate's ABCs, the copic marker, scissors, glitter bottle and the fun phrase on the picture are from Cricut Everyday. The heart mat is from Elegant Edges. The journaling mat is from Paper Trimmings.

I'm sorry about the blurry picture, my camera was not co-operating this evening. I just had to point out that Paper Hoarder phrase. It is so me!

I love the little copic marker! I have many of them in my stash and enjoy using them as much as I can!

I am thinking I might want to make a couple of more resolution pages since this one was so much fun! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Happy Crafting!
