Forever Friends

I had this layout, unfinished, waiting for some embellishment, when I saw the challenge at Shopping Our Stash , which is to use chipboard.

I do have quite a few bits of printed chipboard languishing in drawers. But actually, when I looked at it, I realised that the reason it is unused is that a lot of it is misprinted - the image/pattern is only partially on the chipboard- sometimes with a bit of another pattern at the bottom! This is even in well-known brands. Why didn't I complain at the time? Too late now - it is time to toss it!

Anyway, here I made some little clusters with some of the good chipboard.The papers I used are very old- Amy Butler for K and Company.

I find that with so many chipboard pieces - the misprinting - and it drives me nuts! Why I don't buy it very often :) These are perfect bits & bobs to accent your layout - so glad you came to play with us at SOS this week!
