Make it new again.

This week's challenge at Practical scrappers is to use stuff that's been in your stash for over a year. Sure it might be easy if you grab those buttons or sheet of patterned paper you've never gotten around to using, but the real fun comes when you dig a bit deeper and pull out something really old, or really dated! Try putting a fresh spin on old products, so that your resulting page doesn't end up looking more than a year old too :)

I pulled out a rub-on title by MME that I've easily had for 2 years if not more. That led me to some much older paper by Autumn Leaves and Reminisce. Another product that I have lots of and have problems using are those arrows by Scenic route- and I got 3 on 1 page!!

Good thing I actually managed to snap a couple of pictures of the kids in their St Patrick's Day shirts, or I would  never have found a use for a lot of this stuff!

Other materials used:
Felt- Fancy Pants
Chipboard- American Crafts
Gems- Doodlebug Design Inc.,Kaiser Craft
Journaling spot- Scenic Route
googley eyes- Dollarama
Shamrocks- Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock cut with Cricut( Child's Year Cartridge)
