Taylored Expressions August "Blast from the Past" Blog Hop!!!

Good morning everyone :)
Welcome to another awesome Taylored Expressions 
Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!! 
This month's theme is... Collectors Anonymous!

Stop hording and start using ;) hee, hee...


"Hi, my name is Margie,
I collect scraps of pretty paper and neglect my older stamps, sniff..."

I have been trying SO very hard to get through my scraps!
But I do have a small pile that I just cannot part with, lol!
I finally caved in and pulled out my stash of October Afternoon,
dusted off my "Sweet Celebration" Stamp Set,
the first stamp set that I ever purchased from Taylored Expressions :)
and I also had to dust off my "Banner Day 1 Stamp Set and Die"
which has never been used, just sitting in my stampy box waiting...
Geesh! I looove all of this and it was definitely time
to stop staring/drooling and finally use it :)
Felt good too ;)

Here are the rest of the participants!
Happy Wednesday, and enjoy hopping :)
