Scrap Like You Mean it Week 3

I have been following the prompts for Shimelles weekly challenge on UKS, aimed at encouraging us to complete at least one LO per week. With a different theme each week, lots of us are scrapping hard to meet the challenge!

This weeks prompt was to use chipboard, so here's my LO. An old photo of Harry on the beach, some Urban Rhapsody papers, and lots of chipboard for the title.

One of the best things about these challenges is the way they MAKE me use up old stash! I've had this patterned paper for over a year, and i still love it. The buttons are clear ones, so i covered the back with the paper, i had forgotten I had them, so at last i got round to using them for what i intended!

I bought the chipboard letters at the NEC about 18 months ago, so again old stuff, anf the sizzix alphabet I used for the happy part of the title is one of the first i ever bought.

So... a small inroad made, now to tackle the rest of the mountain!
