Pure Joy - circa 2010

It's "Anything Goes" today at Use It Tuesday.

We are encouraging you to use up your scrappy stash, and choose anything thing you like as your theme for the week.  I think it will be so great to see the wide variety of projects our members will share with us this week, with such a wide range of themes, product, subjects, manufacturers, etc. to choose from.

I decided to create a Christmas layout in Summer.
While cleaning up my old laptop, I came across these photos that I had bookmarked to scrap two years ago, when I bought this Crate Paper - Peppermint collection.  I had completely forgotten about them.  The photos are of the girls opening some of their favourite gifts that year.  I managed to capture some really great expressions on each of their little faces.  I love that this moment is forever captured on this layout (and not still stuck in my computer)

I still had plenty of Chic Tags Christmas tags left from this past Christmas also.  Together, the pair worked perfectly for this layout.  That intertwined circle cut was made using my Cameo.

That Christmas tree flair is two years old by Evalicious, and the "smile" one is actually a fairly new one that I won from Panda Eight Designs.  Martha creates some gorgeous flair, you know I'm a sucker for flair.  I suggest you check out her Etsy shop.

So what stash do you still have laying around that needs to make it's way into a project?  Can I interest you in a Christmas layout in summer perhaps?  Hop over to the blog to see what the rest of the DT created using their stash this month.  You're sure to be inspired.

Don't forget about our Design Team call.  You still have a few more days to get your application in to join these lovely ladies.  Heather and Siobhan lead a great team, and what better way to use up your stash than by joining in a couple of challenges every month?!  You can get all the DT call details right here (just scroll down to the bottom of the page).  Good luck to those who apply!
