We call it SCRAPbooking for a reason!

As our fabulous NSD event comes to a close, if you are like me, your craft room is probably a disaster! You may be thinking "time to clean up". BUT NOT YET!

What better way to end the day than with a true SCRAP challenge. Gather up all those scraps left from the day (or from other projects) and USE THEM! I find mosaic-like projects are a fabulous way to take all those little pieces to create treasures. Scraps are also great for layering - you can make them look like larger pieces when tucked under other layers. Use your imagination. But I don't want this to be TOO easy - it is challenge after all. So here are a few twists you must keep in mind:

* At least FOUR different patterned papers
* You may not use a full sheet of patterned paper (cardstock for the base is the only exception)
* You may not cut into a fresh sheet of 12x12 patterned paper
* Start with nothing larger than 6x6 (base cardstock excluded)
* Digital, cards, or mixed media are all A-OK

I'll post a few inspiration projects I found in the gallery for you including one I created last night. If you saw what I used to create the layers behind my photo your first thought would be "Frankenstein"!

And for those that were following my hints:
1. Its all in the name = SCRAPping
2. Your mom said you had to do but I say don;t - clean up
3. Size matters - limit to the size of the original papers to use
4. Safety in numbers - at least FOUR different papers
5. Cut it, punch it, shred it, tear it - whatever you need to do with your scraps to MAKE IT WORK
