September Scrapbookers Anonymous Stash Challenge

So it's September 1st and this is a big deal at Scrapbookers Anonymous!  It's our anniversary month!  How exciting!!!  We have all sorts of festivities planned this month but to start it out it's our monthly stash challenge.

This month's stash challenge is to dig into your chip board!  I have so much of this stuff but I seldom gravitate towards using it on a layout.  I'm not sure why, I love the dimension it adds and it doesn't take long to alter it so I guess this is a great challenge for me.

But in the end I decided not to make a layout but a wall hanging.  Here's what I came up with!

The glass broke out of this picture frame awhile back and of course I couldn't throw out the frame.  Most of the chipboard is by Fancy Pants but the little people are Maya Road.  I found this great saying online by googleing, "wall sayings"  seriously what did we do before google?!  All the paper used is from my scrap drawer so  there are multiple manufacturers.

I love how this turned out!  And my DH even commented that he liked it, that's HUGE!!!  He's usually oblivious to what I'm doing in my scrap room.

Head on over to Scrapbookers Anonymous and see what the DT did with this challenge and then come back again and again AND AGAIN to see what we have in store for you the entire month!!!

This turned out super awesome! I agree - what did we do before Google - it's my answer to everything & I give everyone the same advice "Just google it!" Awesome that they have become a verb :)
