I'm Not.....

Heads up! New challenge over at the DreamGirls!

This is a Use-Your-Stash-Challenge with the title of "I'm not..... (fill in the blanks)"

We had to use patterned papers from at least 6 months back!! No problem for me on this one as I have tonnes of stash from more than 6 months back!!! Some even up to a year back even! The twists - Technique: add a touch of tearing somewhere in the LO, Prompts: Must use "I'm Not" in your title.

The prize that you're going for is a lovingly sponsored Jan Kit from none other than

So do get participated with us and link your works under the comments of the I'm Not challenge over at Dreamgirls to have the chance to win a kit!!

This was really great for me for the new year as I know I'm an avid patterned paper collector of the new but yet holding on preciously to the old... LOL! But one of my scrapping goals for this year is to use up 70% of my paper stash and avoid too much buying for the time being (yes, we've all said this a million times!!)

Anyway, just to share what I did for this challenge.

Since my boy just turned 3 years last Sunday, I decided to do a LO that says

"I'm Not Baby!"

Papers used: Scenic Route PPs and a leftover October Afternoon PP for the papers used. Embellishments and stickers were like from more than 6 months ago too.

I hope you like my 2nd LO for the year! And I do hope I'm doing it justice!

I'm slowly starting to get my mojo back and I'm looking forward to a great year for 2009!


As I shared with my fellow Groovie Gals what my scrapping goals were for 2009, I'll share them here:

1) Use up at least 50% of my stash - new or old (especially the old ones), I'm not really bothered by whether it's the latest in my LOs.

2) Hold the online and real life SB shopping (easier said than done) till I'm like 70% used up my PP and stashes!!! Other than that, I think I have more than what I need to scrap with.

3) Am thankful and contented for the DTs I'm on. 2 of them are on break currently and will resume sometime mid Jan i.e Pink Sketches and The Story Matters, I'm grateful to be given the chance to be on DreamGirls and being a Groovie Cover Gal. Will work hard at them and for each challenge. Of course I do hope I have the time to participate in {Create}'s and Groovie's challenges. No plans to apply for DTs unless invited (dream on!!)

4) Hmmmm, I hope to be able to venture out to do more mini albums. So far I think I've only done 2 last year!!! I hope to see more minis for 2009.

5) Organize my scrap space and hopefully get my "scrap table" from Ikea =P

So what's your scrapping goal for year 2009? Share them with me!!! I've got a delish LUXE paper kit to RAK away!!!

Hey - I gave you a blog award on my blog. :)

Glenda T. said...

I am the same way Sophia! I could almost open up a paper store with my massive stash, it's ridiculous! Sometimes I feel guilty but then I think no, it's there when I need it and how many times have I rooted through the stash to find the perfect piece of paper?? hahaha Yeah, I'm probably in denial!
