I follow a Blog called Scrap Your Crap and they are all about using up the stash of stuff you have laying around(and I know all of you traditional scrappers have one) Digi scrapper just arrange this as you can to fit in with the digi side of things. Every time I write a challenge it is going to be a Scrap Your Crap Challenge! There is one major rule to these challenges
