Hello and good morning....

Welcome to the Switch it up in September Blog Hop for My Scraps & More!! You should have arrived here from the wonderful Lisa....

To learn a little more about the daily themes, we are having this blog hop! Each of the Design Team members are showcasing one of the days. Here is the order for the hop...

Mix it Up with ---------Audrey
Tues. Trigger with-----Tracy
Word Up with----------- Lisa
Throwback with-------- Wendi (you are here)
Free for All with--------Me 
Steal with ---------------- Missy

I get to showcase our new Throwback Thursdays challenges!! The name pretty much sums it up! Thursday's challenge will be pulling out something in your scrappy goods that you haven't used in a LONG time.. maybe a trend that was around awhile ago, but isn't really used anymore. Mainly to use things that you already have in your scrappy area from over a year ago,  and then combining it with your newer scrappy goods.


For my layout I decided to use something old and something new from the same manufacturer. I pulled some older MME Indie Chic line and then mixed it with some of the new MME Cut and Paste collection found in the My Scraps store here.  So my challenge to you: to use a NEWER line and then an OLDER line from the SAME manufacturer that is AT LEAST a year old...

I actually used quite a bit of gesso on this page, and also painted it over a brick mask on two of the blue papers:
Next I also painted over the yellow chevron paper to give it an ombre feel:
You will have till midnight Sunday(The Hop will run until MIDNIGHT, Sunday, Sept. 2nd.) evening to comment on all the blogs to be eligible to win a fantastic prize....
And one lucky winner will receive the new "Paper & Glue" collection from Echo Park!

So you are off to your next stop............... the talented Tammi....

Thanks soo much for stopping by!!! Have a great day....
