Using up the old papers

I know I am not the only one out there that has bought paper upon paper just to have it sit and not get used. I have more than I want to admit at this point. My boys love to get into my supplies and play when they get to "feeling crafty", so those less than desirable papers are the ones I let them get out to use on their projects.

With the thought of having all these papers I don't like and the drive to get them out of my stash, (so I can buy new paper, of course) I joined a Swap/Challenge on our consultant message board. The swap was to pick 3 of your least favorite, or should I say Ugliest Papers, cut them in half and send half to someone and keep half for yourself. Someone else sent me half of hers. Then use all 6 papers on a layout and a 3 1/2 x 5 card w/ an inspirational quote. Luckily the papers I received were not too bad at all. They actually matched each other. Mine on the other hand didn't match them selves much less the 3 pieces I got in the mail. So as of right now all 6 pieces of paper are sitting on my scrap table staring at me. My goal for the day is to finish at least the layout, maybe even the card.

My CHALLENGE to anyone of you who read this is to pick out 3-5 of your least favorite papers in your stash and scrap a page. When you are finished post the link in the comment section of this post. I would love to see what you all come up with.

When my page is finished I will post the layout as well as the not so great papers I used.

Happy Friday, and Happy Scrappin,
