Five Product Challenge


I was asked by Emily at Studio Calico to participate in a challenge, which was to use five named items on a layout. Surprisingly, I found it easier to do this than figuring out what to use all by myself. I kind of liked being told what to do. Quite unusual and an epiphionic moment for me. Normally being told what to do results in the opposite. But I like Emily and recognized it was for my own good. LOL! So what you see up above is the result. Not bad. Items that we had to use were alphabet letters, metal, SC pattern paper, floss (double points for using dental floss) and paint. You can read more about the challenge and see what the others came up with here: Five Product Challenge and here: More Challenge Layouts. Lots of awesomeness.

For this upcoming weekend I plan on a lot of laying around and scrapping. I plan this every weekend and it rarely happens. Maybe this time I will get lucky. A few of the BASB girls have decided to have a small mini challenge of using stamps on a layout this weekend. No prizes. Just the victory of knowing we for once have used a stamp. Care to play along? If so, place a link to your creation in the comments here. I would love to see them. I will share mine once complete.

Enjoy your weekend!
