HMITM - Challenge 170

I was supposed to put this up last week when I completed it, but alas I am behind the 8 ball this I will also be adding my friend who also took up the challenge as she does not have a blog.

Despite all the 'negative talk' about scrapbookers trying not to feel like they are 'behind the 8 ball' when it comes to their albums, I think we have all felt that way at one time or another. The challenge this time is to use...

8 patterned papers - check
8 rubons - check
8 brads - check
8 stickers- check
8 word title - check, now that was a challenge.

I also had some more fun with the number 8, by adding eight leaves, flowers and birds also cut from the eight patterened papers.

If you are looking for a fun challenge that will help you use some of that stash, then why not come along and play over at "How Much is to Much".
