'Old Skool Stash Scrap' Blog Hop

Welcome to the 'Old Skool Stash Scrap' blog hop......where Kate has challenged us to make a layout using the oldest stash we can find......sadly I have to admit to having far too much of that.......think the problem sometimes is, if you don't use it for a while, you go off it, and then you don't want to use it!!!!
I decided to use some old photos to go with the old stash.........DD1's first ever Sports Day.....in the back garden of her little nursery school.
The green card I've had for a couple of years.....has a pearl effect which I'm not too keen on.......but the floral and striped card behind the photos I've had since my very early scrapping days.......and I also cut out some of the flowers from the paper to dot round the edges of the page.........the paper letters in the title are at least 5 years old.....and now I've actually opened the pack I think I may use them!! The background 'writing' paper is [I think] from an old K & Co pack.
And although I probably wouldn't have chosen these papers........I do like the finished page......and glad they've finally seen the light of day.
This is the sketch I used.......and as you can see......I used a bit less 'white space' than I should have!!!!!!
Please do go and have a look at the wonderful pages that everyone else on the blog hop has come up with......starting with Choccys.
If you get lost.........here's all the other participants
Have a fun hop around.

great use of "old"er stash! I could easily find stuff that it ten years old if I were to play along! Love the sketch you used.

Isn't it funny how we love everyone elses OLD stash but not our own lol. This layout has turned out beautifully and really reflects the feelings of the day Jacky.
