My Pledge

"I, Erika Melnychuk, pledge to not buy ANY scrapbooking stuff (excluding adhesives and necessary Stampin' Up! items) until I have completed thirty-five (35) scrapbooking pages.  Mini books will count for 1/2 the number of pages in the book.  Cards do not count."
Signed by ME yesterday...


Witnessed by my husband yesterday....(no, he wasn't holding me hostage...well, not really...HELP?!)


For obvious reasons...including my overspending problem (let's just say I was recently "convicted" by the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic) and my incredibly wonderful collection of scrapbooking supplies, I figure this won't be a difficult feat.  

I was allowed to get a head start with a few pages I recently did, and already completed more for a total of 6 completed pages marked on my list (which is nobly hanging on our refrigerator).  I am planning on scanning and sharing some of them with you along the way!  Who knows how long my journey to 35 pages will take?!  Maybe many weeks...maybe only a few!  Thankfully, I am going to a scrappin retreat next weekend and will be able to do at least SOME layouts (in between splashing in the pool and laughing with my friends!)

WANT TO JOIN ME?!?!  Let me know in the comments section if you will also join this challenge!  How many pages can YOU do before shopping?!?  Of course...adhesives and "necessary" Stampin' Up products don't count...wink wink...

That's quite the challenge!! I'm sure you can do it - especially when adhesives & StampinUp stuff is "allowed" ;) I think I like that challenge too - I'll take it, but maybe not in writing...(just typing)

I'm in! And I want to try to complete all my incomplete projects too. And we do have those credits for Scrapbook Parade that have to be used by September 4th.

Go Erika!!!
I know you can do it... and I'll bet your find some fun stuff in your stash between now and "Page 35"!!!!

For me, I've actually gone to TOM twice in the last two weeks and bought NOTHING. Held a tiny amount of things in my hands, walked around, put them back. Amazing, eh. Now I just have to get scrapping a little more and see where it takes me!

I have successfully completed 35 pages...THREE TIMES OVER!!!! YAY!!!! Thanks to the ease of mini books (counting as half pages) I have earned $150 in spending money (we agreed each 35 pages = $50 CASH) YAY!!! Eventually, I'll share some of my creations...
