Let's Strip!

K, not like you're thinking!! C'mon!

It's the name of the new workout challenge up today at ScrapFIT! Specifically to use at least 4 strips of different papers by at least 2 different manufacturers! Which suits me fine, since one of my vague, crudely defined resolutions for the New Year is to use up some stash on every layout.

(Vague, crudely defined resolutions don't feel quite so bad when they don't last. Another one is to read this stack of books in the next year.Which I think is do-able. The vague, crudely defined part of that is to not buy any more until these are read. I think that might be harder to promise.)

Stash is also vaguely, crudely defined as product in my possession for a year or more...! So you can see that the box of paper scraps got a workOUT with this challenge. As well, we needed to use a strip of something else, embellishments, whatnot. Thus the row of ribbon bits. And I finally got to use my Calico White Mr Huey! Fun stuff, that! I covered the whole background paper with strips and then misted around the shaped paper mask. Add the stitching and called it good!
Now you need to do this challenge and link it up back at the original ScrapFIT post for a chance to win some Valentine swag from ScrapFIT itself!!
