Is there something in your stash that you don't use enough?  Or do you have a technique you love that you forget to use?   This week the   Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge   is to showcase a project doing something you should use more of or do more of...

There are quite a few extremely talented scrapbookers on the Design Team at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.  When I thought of what I should do more of I thought of all my pictures which I could be using in layouts.

This photo is a photo of my youngest and Grandpa at one of Grandpa's sledding parties.  The yellow in my father's shirt inspired me creating a yellow based layout.

The background a mix of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist dripped and splattered direct from the bottle with out the spray top on.

After that I used the pretty doily stencil and sponged on black dye ink randomly.

I mixed in a bit of script, and circles.  I added a sentiment on acetate which was stapled onto the layout.

Maybe this will keep me inspired to scrap more projects.
