Don't Stash It Challenge - Day #15

Ah the snow they were calling for all week has finally arrived. Had the kids hoping for a snow day, but there's just not enough, so off they went. It's Pizza Day anyway, so how bad can it be? I've got my coffee, a nice view of the snow-covered backyard and a semi-clean house. Not bad for a Friday. Have you hit bottom in your stash? Have you uncovered a forgotten treasure trove? Have you gotten rid of anything? Hopefully, yes to at least two of those. It's always good to have gone through your stash, reacquaint yourself with what you have. It can often be inspiring in getting some pages done. And getting rid of things that are taking up space is always good; someone else is bound to love them as much as you once did. Today, let's use up some rub-ons. You either have full packs or you have plenty of scraps - it's time to put them to use. Use at least three different rub-ons on today's layout. Since they come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors, using up three shouldn't be too tough. Continue to combine your oldest papers, and the sketch below. Today's sketch is from Shawn over at Nuts About Sketches. If you're in need of a little jumping off spot, click the link and scroll down just a bit to find this sketch and the design team's examples.

Today is the last challenge for the week - everything is due by Sunday evening. Ya'll are working for a Scenic Route kit, as the "completed all" goodie. Tomorrow, we'll have a little break in the work by playing a little. One of the designer's posted this game during a Blog Hop and it was fun, and easy to participate, so we'll do it again tomorrow. Yes, if you participate, you could win a prize. ;) Weekend plans? We have the much anticipated City Championship game tomorrow. Go Rockets!! I'll let you know how they did. Otherwise, fairly quiet. Looks like the snow will, once again, cancel soccer on Sunday. Fish Fry tonight and that's it. Maybe I'll be able to have a little down time to do something for myself. We'll see. Enjoy! Photobucket

I'm all caught up with the challenges so far! YAY!

Here's my version on the 2-pager plus 5 different rubons. It's hard to see details on a 2-pager on my blog, but one the first page I used 2 wordy rubons above and below the photos. On page 2 I used colorful rubons on the journal tag and Happy Birthday plus a cupcake rubon on the white tag.
