Due to all my computer and camera issues it has been so long since I have played along with one of the challenges at Just Add Ink so I was determined to have a go this week.
The challenge is to just add critters...how fun is that!
My first though was to use the fabulous Fox and Friends stamp set but after spending two days searching for it on my bombsite of a desk I decided to do a scrap page instead using a retired Simply Scrappin Kit because I knew it had the cutest little turtle sticker.
When I got the kit out I found that the papers were a bit bright for my photos so I have kept the sticker and substituted papers.
The title, journalling spot and turtle came from the Hoppy Memories Simply Scrappin Kit from last year's catty.
The rubons are called Anchored and are from two years ago and I have also used some retired Antique Brass Hodgepodge including a label holder, photo turns and brads.
The papers I have used came from the Urban Oasis Designer Series paper set. I have used Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss cardstock and of course the Top Note die (love it).
To make the cute border I have used the Curly Label punch and only punched off a small section and worked my way along the edge. This is a great alternative for a boys page when the scallop and eyelet border look a little too pretty.
So as you can see I have used a lot of my retired stash on this layout.
How about you, do you have a pile of retired products you haven't used. How about I challenge you to get out your old product and create. Leave me a comment and link to your creation. I would love to see what you make.
