Don't Stash It Challenge - Day #12

Ah, back to the grindstone. At least it's only for four days. I hope if you were lucky enough to have yesterday off that you enjoyed your time, whether you got things done around the house, played in the snow, or just relished the time not having to do anything or be anywhere. I either had a really slow day yesterday, I'm totally exhausted or I'm brain dead, because I'm sitting here without a thing to say. Hmmmm. . . .yep. . . .nothing. Lucky you all! :D Today's challenge isn't so much a "stash" item as it is an old tool - but use your "old" stash with it. Punches. Remember back in the "olden days" when punches were what you used to decorate your pages. Back before there were corner rounders and borders you had just basic shapes (but holy cow the things you could create - it was like McGyver for scrapbookers.) I remember when punches started to get more intricate - I bought them because they were different, not because I planned to actually use them. By the end of the punch phase, I had a ton of them, too. I've since wheedled down my collection, and they still sit in my scrap area, though now they're more a dust collection. So, on today's layout use at least three different punches - along with your older products. Today's sketch comes from Sketchy Thursdays.

Remember, it's about getting that stash up, out and used. Have your layouts linked up by Sunday evening to be eligible. This week's prize for the "I did them all this week" winner is a really cute pack of product from Scenic Route (which is going out of business :(.

Enjoy the rest of the day.

I haven't used my older punches in a LONG, LONG time! I'm guessing we have to use only our OLDER ONES? I'll see what I can do.

WOW! It's been crazy around here, but finally catching up on this one! I left a description on my blog about the old papers and punches used. Loved working with this sketch!
