Stash Dive time!!

October Afternoon and Crate paper are the two brands that I absolutely love and will not get rid of no matter how old they are!  Some of the papers on this layout are from 2009!  You know what though...it doesn't matter one bit to me.  I have found in all of my years scrapping that there are trendy and classic papers and embellishments.  The trendy things I have to use while they are still trendy, but the classics I keep in my stash.  

The blue floral paper is so sweet and was perfect for this photo!  This is one of my favorite childhood photos.  I don't think that I have any others that have my absolute best friend in them which is sad.  I adored Stacy and we were best of friends until her family moved.  Sadly, we lost touch.

I decided to use this journaling card to tell the who and the what.  I also pulled out my stash of October Afternoon buttons.  These buttons are from later collections but they work perfectly with the older lines. I used a total of EIGHT different October Afternoon lines on this layout! It just shows how well these collections mix and match together!

I love this sweet doe!  I hoarded this sweet sticker and am so glad that I did because it is perfect in this cluster!  This is another example of bringing newer items in with your older stash.  The doe is from the Daily Flash collection.

This is one of my favorite layouts that I have completed recently and I'm sure it's because of the memories.  It's easy when you have children to forget to document yourself or your significant other, so I am going to try and be better about getting our memories down as well.

If you'd like to take a peek at my process, I have a video below.  I'd love to know what you think!
