Beautiful -- before & after :)

Hi everyone :) 

This past weekend, Elle's Studio had a use your stash challenge :)  Now most of you know my goal this year is to use up my stash ... so this challenge was perfect for me :) 

I was able to make 5 layouts for their challenge :) 

I used lots and lots of Elle's goodies :) 




****oooppppsssss ... after I took photos I realized I messed up the journaling ... oh well, you get the idea******** :) 
























For this last one ... I dug wayyyyyyyyy into the scrappy stash :)  I have had these Fall Vintage Journal tags since ummmmm 2009!!!!! :) 





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
