I just quickly made this LO, after realising that the deadline for Sarah's Card's challenge was nearly up for this month!
The challenge is to use up old stash...which I have stuck to 99%! The only bits of this entire LO which is not at least 6 months old, are the letter stickers. But then I go through packs of these so quickly, I could never have any around for long!
After the frustration with my sewing machine last time, I did just a small amount of hand stitching on this LO instaed. I hold a grudge for a while!
I found that using these old papers, I was reverting back to old, basic techniques aswell, like tearing, and hand doodling. This is all very well, but because I did not have the same passion for these products as I would brand new ones, I also found myself being a bit lazy, and not putting my whole heart into it. So one big shake, and a telling off, and I started to get my act together and work harder...! Just because they were old papers, doesn't mean they don't deserve to grace a good LO!
Hope you all have a good weekend! The sun is shining here, so (once I am actually dressed) I am off in the garden to start scrubbing the winter residue off the kids playhouse and trampoline...oh joy!
