Stash Busting Challenge

Time has come again to bust the stash.  The kits have kept coming each month, I have kept buying extras each month and I have kept scrapping but not as quick as the stash comes in.  Sadly next month will see the last Sarah's Cards Monthly Kit.  I will miss this box of goodies coming each month but I can understand why Sarah made the decision to stop the kits.  Alot of work goes in to them and she has kept the price the same without reducuing the size and quality of the kits each month, something which other kit suppliers haven't done.

I will miss the kit and this is the last kit I subscribe to having stopped Scrapagogo in January 2011 and Studio Calico in March this year.  But I have 18 unopened kits and another 21 part used kits going back as far as March 2010.  Then there are all the extras.  My expedit is fit to burst.  I really like having a monthly kit but I need to use up some stash before I start another subscription.  Having already decided I am going back to Studio Calico I need to make some space for those big brown boxes.  In order to do just that I am challenging myself to complete 100 LO's.

Yes, thats right 1 0 0 LO's.  So far I have made 6.  I have shown you 3 and 1 is for my Chinese Whispers Facebook group and I can't show that yet.  I am continuing with Project Life but that project will not be included in this challenge.  Here are the two I have not yet shared:

The first LO is taken from a sketch in Page Maps 2 book and the second from Sarah's Cards June challenge.  I am not entering this LO as it didn't come out as well as I had hoped but I am going to have a go and make another to enter.  I am hoping to try and enter some more challenges in order motivate me to achieve these 100 LO's as soon as I can. 

At this point I may need more than this challenge before I start the kit subscription back up as I must at least use up all the stash that won't fit in the expedit.  To say my stash fills a 5 x 5 expedit screams to me that I have too much but when the unit is then piled to the ceiling with boxes plus the top of my wardrobe is also piled high I fully realise something must be done.

I fully expect this challenge to take me until the end of the year and hope to scrap on Sundays and one evening during the week making 3/4 LO's a week.  I am planning on blogging Monday and Fridays so please pop back the end of the week for an update.  If you fancy joining in let me know and we could perhaps set up a Mr Linky and bust the stash together.

I like that second LO - you should enter it. However, if your aim is stash busting you will have to go for pages with extra layers LOL!
