A Little More Done


An Organized Space…



Lots of Layouts and Projects Done…








Finally our No Spending Challenge for Who Gives A Scrap? is OVER!! WOOHOOO!!! I figured I'd post all my points and see all the things I accomplished this month. Above is a recap of some of the layouts I got done during our challenge. I was chatting with Cindy, the clever one who organized this amazingly in-depth purge-save $ – scrap – no shopping challenge and was saying we should do this again. It was a really productive month!

  4. I don’t know who won yet. The points were just earned from different things we all did during the challenge so these are my points. I did it more to see how many points I could get for the sense of accomplishment, not really to win the prize. I feel pretty good about it!
