Your Room (scrapbooking)

If you are unaware ... Winter CHA is happening this weekend.  What that means is new supplies coming to an LSS near you.  But not for me (or at least I am going to try to withstand the temptation).
What it also means is 2Peas is running online challenges where you can win if you upload layouts or cards based on the challenge.  I get if I win ... so I'll be entering!! 
For today, I wanted to scrap by sons room as it is now that he is 13.  A long time ago, I scrapped his room when he was just little.  While some things are the same, there is a lot that is different as well.  I think it will be cool for him when he is older to look back and see what was in his room.
The 2peas Challenge I am entering this layout into is the Select 7 Diffrent Patterns challenge.  That is right ... use 7 different patterns on your layout. I can hardly believe it but I did.  All come from the Lime Rickey Collection (BasicGrey).  That made it a bit easier.
Here is a close up of the title.  Large letters are also from the Lime Rickey collection (BasicGrey) but the little letters are black on clear squares from Recollections (sold at Michaels). 
I also used a rub-on (the All Mine circle at the top left corner of the verticle photo) and it is from Sampin' Up!
I must say, I am enjoying the creative outlet of scrapbooking again!  I am trying to be brave and just cut into all my beautiful paper .. to use it up.  I have an agreement with myself .. if I use it all, I can buy new stuff again.  No better way to motivate myself!! 
Hope over to 2peas and see what is going down at Winter CHA.  If you want to see video's showing some of the new products you can check it out HERE.
Thanks for dropping by.

I think that's such a great idea to scrapbook your son's room so he can look back at it later... maybe with a son/daughter of his own? ;) I know, way too early to think about that!
