Less is More Week 56- Don't scrap it!

Good morning LIMettes and of course Chrissie and Mandi!  Well here I am bright and early on a Saturday morning.  I've not blogged at all this week so am itching to get cracking with this week's challenge over at Less is More which is

"This week we have a simple recipe for you to follow which is to use some of those left over bits and pieces we all tend to keep so this week"
Don't Scrap it!
Well I don't know about you but I've got an expanding file stuffed to the brim just like Chrissie's - I think us crafters just can't throw anything away that "we might just need one day".  I made this card the other day using up my scraps that I've been harbouring for an age, and its perfect for this weeks challenge!  So here is my offering for this week's challenge:-

The thin strip of blue paper at the bottom of the card was a piece of scrap left over from me cutting into a piece for another card - yep I save the smallest bits of paper!  The other elements on this card were in another pile that I've got from when I last got together with my crafty friends and we had a Cricut day and I had these bits sitting in a bag (along with loads of other bits and bobs!)  I've really wanted to use that chandelier for ages on a card so glad I've finally used it!

A plastic bag that has got loads of bits and bobs I've collected over time which are either die cuts or Cricut cuts!
 My very unorganised overflowing expanding file with my paper scraps!
So I will be over later and over the weekend to see what everyone else has created for this challenge.  Its great to be back in the land of blogging........!!!

Until then...

Happy Crafting
