New Challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous!!!

We have a new mid-month challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous!  Theresa and I were talking about how we have all this wonderful product but forget about it and it doesn't get used.  We then decided that we were going to challenge ourselves to do an A to Z challenge.  Basically each month we dig into our stash and use something that starts with the letter for the month.  And since it's about stash usage we decided to start it up as a mid month challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous.  So as it's the 15th, we have started our A to Z challenge today with the letter "A" and here's my layout made almost entirely out of American Crafts!!!
I, like many of you, have a substantial collection of AC paper and embellies.  All the AC on here is from the Abode collection which I just had to have but hadn't used.  However for the challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous, we're making it even easier for you to play along.  You can interpret the A to Z challenge pretty much however you want!  It doesn't have to be about the manufacturer.  For example, if you have a whole lotta alligator emellies in you stash, well alligator starts with "A" so it meets our very lax requirements.  Hey we're about stash usage and don't like too many restrictions.  So go visit Scrapbookers Anonymous and see how our DT interpreted the challenge!!!

I really love how you splayed all the embellies instead of clustering them, as so many of us do right now! Love this layout!!!
