"It's been two days since I've purchased more paper..."
LOL! Yep, I have a weakness for pretty papers... it's the truth. I started scrapbooking back in early 2002 and even then I was all about the paper. Heck, I can still pull paper from my 'stash' that I bought back in those early days. Did I mention I have a hard time letting go of it too? I have read many posts from gals about purging and I could never really jump on that train... I mean if I loved it then I should still love it now, right?
Well my friends, this card is how I justify hanging onto all that paper for so long. I bought this SEI Hippie Chick paper at least five years ago. No specific plan for it, just thought it was cute. So it waited and waited... and waited some more. Ever eager for the day when it would finally make its way onto a project. Last week that day arrived when I sat down to create a card for the Farewell to Jacquie challenge at Club Anya. I inked up Hippie Anya and thought about what paper to put her with so I could match up the colors of her outfit. I immediately remembered this line and it was perfect. Well, using these old papers must have brought me some luck because this card won me a new 80's Anya stamp during the VSN!
That is why I hang onto my paper, you just never know when it will make new goodies (like my stamps) shine.
