"In with the NEW" Challenge

Out with the old
In with the NEW
or not so NEW
but NEW to you

For the remainder of January your challenge is to create something with the NEWEST scrapbooking product you have at the time of making. Creations can be anything papercraft related, it doesn't have to just be a scrapbooking layout. We want to see creativeness in the best form you know how!

I am very well aware that many of you are cutting back on shopping until you use up some of your current product on hand and have also taken away your scrapbooking budget in order to save money this year. That's okay! Your NEW product can be from a year or two ago just as long as it is the NEWEST scrapbooking goodie you currently have.

Creations have to be NEW as of January 17 and must be submitted by the
due date: January 31
That gives you 2 weeks from start to finish. Totally do-able and to make it easier on you, you could always pair our challenge with others you plan on doing.

Now check out the Eye Candy from the Lollipop Girls....

I actually got a paper pack for Christmas, so that would be some of the newest stuff in my scrapbooking collection. And I've been using it like crazy lately!

I also entered a recent LO (using the above-mentioned paper and other goodies that have been in my stash for far too long) for this challenge. And I should be a follower, unless it didn't work when I clicked "follow" a few months ago. And if you go here http://cookscrapcraft.blogspot.com/2010/01/scrapbook-challenge.html, you'll see that I'm sharing this challenge with people who read my blog. :)

I'm loving listening to the music player on this page, btw!
