I'm a Guest DT over at Scrap our Stash!

I was so excited to be one of the winner's of Scrap Our Stash's September challenge.  Each month, they pick a winner(s) from all the pages that are submitted throughout the month who are invited to be a guest designer the following month.  I love the idea of using of my stash.  I certainly have lots of it to get too :)))

Their main challenge this month is to do THAT Project! You know the one I mean - the one you've been putting off. Your challenge is: to do a project you've been procrastinating about it may be a particular layout, cleaning up your scrap area; finishing all those started project - anything goes - and you are encouraged to Scrap Your STASH!

They also have a Pagerize This challenge a couple times a month where you take something from a layout you like and create your own spin on it.

Here's what I wrote on their blog today:

When I saw Joni's page on the Pagerize This Challenge, I couldn't wait to get started. I just loved the layout of her page. I had so much fun pulling out ALL kinds of stash to use on my layout. I used a mask and glimmer mist in the top left corner. I used many different inks on my tag and pulled out an old background stamp to decorate it. I've had the vellum quote for over a year so I was happy to pull it out and use it on the tag as well. I wrapped it around the tag and attached it on the back, so no adhesive would show.
I used something else on my layout that I haven't used in AGES. Chalks! The butterfly at the top of the page was originally white, so I chalked it up and used my IRock to adhere a couple of gems to it. I also chalked up the Tattered Angels letters SWEET which were originally cream color.
 Finally I added a little sparkle (because I alway have to have some kind of sparkle on my pages) and added some copper Stickles to the Basic Grey paper and prima flowers.

If you get a chance, run by there and check out the challenges here.

I also made my layout for the following challenges.

Studio L3 - wrinkle free distressing (my tag)
Basic Grey Challenges - Basic grey paper and sparkles
Ellephantastic Challenges - Anything Goes

What an awesome layout, Denise! "Sweet" is absolutely the right adjective, and the soft colors and lovely flowers make it even sweeter. What a DARLING baby!

Your wrinkle-free distress tag is a beautiful compliment to the page, and the stamped vellum makes a perfect embellishment. This is truly gorgeous!

Congratulations on your much-deserved honor at Scrap Your Stash!!!
