It's Monday.....

....and that means we have a little more Use Your Stash inspiration for you! If you're anything like me you can never throw anything out before seeing if there are bits on it you can use first :) I am most like this when it comes to throwing out clothes, I have to have the buttons off shirts, the lacy bits of bras, pockets off jeans and sometimes I love the pattern of something so much I have to keep the whole thing! But then these 'bits' sit in a drawer taking up space and I never sem to use them! Sound familiar?? I'm sure it does! :D So today I am challenging you to go dig through your stash and find that bit of fabric or lace, or jeans pocket and use it on a LO! Here is mine! A LO of my DHs son in a moody surfer/sk8er boy pose. I used one of his billabong shirts that was destined for the bin!! Chopped it up and stitched it to my cardstock, added some grungy stamping and some metalic rub ons that pick out the blue on the fabric enhancing it! A simple yet effective LO, and very cheep!!
Please excuse the not so great photos of the LO, but it's so windy outside I just couldn't get the LO to stay still enough to get some good photos :)
Thanks for visiting!!
