Celebrate and a Challenge

I can't believe it!  I finished!  I'm done!  Two scrapbooks, 70 scrapbook inserts, 140 layouts later, I have finished my cruise vacation from 2013! I am so happy!

I haven't been scrapbooking continuously since that vacation, I scrapbook in spurts.  I have been on a long spurt this time though - working since February!

So, now I am on to our vacation to Mexico last summer.  I'm looking forward to doing it while it is still fresh in my memory.  I hate losing the details!

Along with the new focus, I am starting a new personal challenge I saw over at Lori's blog, A Happy Life.  She wants to use up her old patterned papers - her goal is to use 100 patterned papers! (Old papers, NO new ones).  I like this idea.  I have tons of old paper(some is from my original scrapbooking days, over 10 years old!) as well, patterned and cardstock, so  I am changing the challenge up a little: USE 100 old papers. I am going to see if I can find some type of counter to keep track!

To start the challenge, I used up 2 sheets making the lemons and limes below:)  We used lots of limes on this Mexico trip - Mojitos, Guacamole, Fresh Salsa, etc!  Thanks to Michelle McClure from A Page out of My Book for the lime Silhouette Cut file!  I found her site through a lime google search!


I'm off and scrapping!
