SOS January Stash Challenge & Sketches In Thyme Sketch #260

For this layout, I used the January Tic Tac Toe Stash Challenge from Scrap Our Stash as well as Sketch #260 from Sketches in Thyme.

The items I chose for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge:
Die Cut
Winter Theme
Paper Clip

For the Die Cut, I dug deep into my stash to find a stocking cap from My Mind's Eye. The card says copy write 2002 on it -- which means I've been holding onto it for 15 years. Funny thing is, I'll continue to keep it because there is still a frame and several button die cuts left on the card.

Here's Sketch #260:

I decided to turn the sketch (1/4 turn to the right) to work better with my landscape photos. 

Here is a closer look at the die cut on the page. The paper clip is to the right of the stocking cap.

Before I sign off, I want to check in on New Year Resolution progress. My goal this year is to "use more paper than I buy." I'm excited to say so far it's going great!
Paper purchased = 0
Paper used:
12x12 - 13
8 1/2x11 - 21
(I'm only counting full sheets of paper used -- but I also have a LARGE stash of paper scraps which are used on nearly every page I do!)

Until next time...Happy scrap booking and paper crafting!
