Creative Inspirations DT - oldest thing in your stash

When someone asks me what the oldest thing in my stash o' stuff is.........I get a hazed look in my eye....!

Well, this is what we are asking you to provide us with over at Creative Inspirations for the next two weeks.
 Dig out your old papers,
stamp sets,
you name it & you use it!!

What would mine be? Not my stamps.......not my would have to be the paper pack & ribbon assortment I bought at Costco when I first started scrapbooking.

You know that feeling of thinking you need EVERYTHING you see & you need it YESTERDAY!! LOL

I bought this paper pack of paper that has a fabricy feel to it. Some of the papers have designs on them, while other have sparkles & shine & other have stitching incorporated into it; various colors & styles!

All the papers on my card (except for where the giraffes were printed) are from this paper pack. The green, the yellow and the dirty looking distressed piece behind the scallop giraffes!

Well, that paper, the ribbon (which also came in a bulk pack) & the "ultimate adventure" sticker are all things I used on my card today.
That sticker is so darn old, the stickyness seperated from the back of the sticker.....HAHA. THAT'S OLD!

 The images I used are from Prairie Fairy Designs. From a set called "Lil Gina & Gerry Giraffes".
(don't mind the yellow on the giraffes face, my sponge got the best of me) haha

These giraffes make me smile, especially after the July 1st celebrations (here in Canada) where we went to a fair & my 2 yr old son fell in love with the giraffes on the carousel! To this day, he says 'gonna ride the giraffes' whenever we go for a car ride! Too Cute.

Come on over to the Creative Inspirations challenge blog & give the DT some kind words of wisdom from your old stash o' words & play along with us for the next two weeks for your chance to win 5 digital images from :
