A Spending Challenge

I am challenging myself to not spend any money on scrapbooking supplies until the weekend of September 18th. I can only buy adhesives, order pictures and sign up for ScrapFest (which starts September 18th).

Lately I have been doing a lot of buying and not much scrapping. So my goal between now and September 18th is to create 50 layouts out of the supplies I currently have. This may have to be adjusted if I have to have hip surgery, but I REALLY want to get back into my scrap area and do more creating.

This last weekend I made 20 layouts. It felt SO good. Now if I can continue to find time to create more layouts. I do have a cross stitch that is high priority right now, but sometimes you need a break. :)
