For today's feature, DT Kerry created this fun layout for Stash A thon Challenge #13:

As we are celebrating a Birthday here at Scrap Our Stash I thought I should do a Birthday page for this challenge, which is to use treat bags - mini bags.  I didn't have any patterned mini bags but I had a whole bunch of glassine bags in my stash which were perfect to show off these pretty tags whilst tucked inside them.  I used three - can you spot them?

I had some gorgeous Tim Holtz twine which co-ordinated with my page so I tied a bow on each of my tags.  A sprinkling of adorable mother of pearl sequins (these change colours when you turn the page!) and a glitter title and we are good to go!  What are you going to put in your mini bags? 

Your layouts during the Stash A Thon have been astounding and I can't wait to see your take on this challenge. Happy Scrapping!

Make sure you visit us on the 29th for our very last Stash a Thon challenge!  Remember, you will have until April 5th to upload ALL the challenge entries to qualify for the 3 GRAND PRIZES and a chance to be a Guest Designer! :)

"Up in the Air"
Happy Birthday Scrap Our Stash!
I'm so glad that I can join this big event.  I've chosen the " Ballons" theme for this celebration.

It means I have to include on my page something round or hot air balloons or something that flies in the air.  I've created this page for my photography album.  I really love taking picture with my camera and I have the most fun using my fish eye lens. This photo is one of my works. I think it's perfect for this theme.


I've used from my stash American Crafts pattern paper " My Girl " collection. I've made those hot air ballon embellishments out of pattern paper from the same collection, wood veneers from Studio Calico and twine.

All the challenge entries linked up by NOON (PST) Saturday, March 22nd will be entered into the Weekly RAK Drawing as well as the Grand Prize Drawings!  So make sure to stop by tomorrow to find out who is the winner of week 3 RAK!

"You're Picture Perfect"
How fun to have a celebration in March! There are many things to celebrate on a daily basis and I for one, am cherishing where my family is at right now! That means a lot of fun! We went to take some family photos and of course we always have to get in some jumping photos (hooray!). Alyssa and Drew were up for it, totally cute and fun! 

My challenge pick was to use ribbon or twine. I love using twine on my layouts and took advantage of adding it in splashes here and there as well as using it as the bases for my banner too! It's a versatile string that can be used for anything!!! My favorite is using it wrapping it around something and then tying a bow!

"You Are My Happy Sister"
Here is what Dulcinea shared about her layout:
"Happy Birthday Scrap Our Stash! 
"I’m so happy to be part of the first birthday! For this challenge I chose “sprinkles” and I had the chance to use mist. I used my Silhouette for creating my personal stencil to make a grid on my background. I used this Maggie Holmes paper which matched well with the colors in my sister's picture.  The paper also has the mist effect. For completing, I just embellished my grid with some nice colors. 
It’s so simple, but I love it so much! 
Now, it's your turn! 
If you want, you can download my silhouette file and make your own mist grid or anything you like
Here is a link to the file: http://goo.gl/SDeJIM.
 Happy Birthday Scrap Our Stash!"

"Birthday Girl"
And this is what Megan shared about her layout:
"My Stash A Thon Challenge is the Present challenge which is to use a bow or bows on a layout. I decided to scrap these pictures of my friend, Heidi's little girl, Scarlett, from her 2nd birthday party. A lot of the supplies used are from Studio Calico's Sugar Rush kit. To complete the challenge, I added a bow from Studio Calico's Printshop line. I also colored the little girl image, Cupcake Anya, from the Greeting Farm with Copic markers to match the layout."

Isn't Megan's page adorable?   It's your turn to pull out your bows or make some from your stash of ribbon or even use patterned paper with ribbons.  
We would love to see you create a layout and add a bow or two to share with us!

Today's beautiful reveal is the creative work of DT Jenni inspired by 
Stash A Thon Challenge #3 ~ Candles/Anything that Sparkles
"Home Is Where Your Heart Is..."
Here is what Jenni shared about her layout:
"Happy Birthday Scrap Our Stash! What a fun year and this one looks to be shaping up nicely too...You guys deserve a celebration! 
My contribution to the celebration is to provide the sparkle & glittery bling from CANDLES! I would love to say this was challenging to me or my stash, but there is SO much gold and glitter in my craft room, even Tinkerbelle would be jealous! I used gold embossing past to add some stars to this lovely cloud paper. I also cut my title on the Silhouette from gold Pow! paper and used red Stickles for the heart. I had a couple pieces of gold glitter chipboard from Crate Paper and MME that I layered under my photo. I misted this sweet hot air balloon in gold Color Shine and finally sprinkled around some red and gold sequins and glitter dots!!
I am sure I could have gotten some more in there somewhere! I can't wait to see everyone's pages for this challenge and all of them!!"

Your turn to get out your "sparkly" stash, create a layout and share it with us! 

Thank you for stopping by and remember the more challenges you complete, the more entries you earn towards the weekly and Grand Prizes!!!!

Our next Stash A Thon Challenge will be revealed on Sunday, March 9th!!!
