    This one will take us to the end of the month...All you have to do is dig around for some stuff...lol...You might have to go searching in some of them kits that you haven't paid much attention too....You need to use the items I have specified below...You can right click the preview and save it to your hard drive so you have it...I am also going to give you some examples below, so continue reading...



    Ok, so thats your list...Now for some examples...Lets take the first one on the list...where it says something with a grid...this could be a paper with a grid on it, maybe a flower...something that looks like graph paper...Or lets say something striped...this could be a flower, a background, a frame, etc...You can use each item on the list as many times as you wish, or use a striped paper and a striped flower, don't matter...You just need the items on the list and only them type of items...This could get interesting....LMBO!!

    I am the first brave one I see.....hope this all works!! I will be back, this was fun searching through all our stuff.
    so my grid is the plaid background - which is also my stripped paper, from original kit. Black is the writing. The clip is from Deanne Gowe's pins, fastners and Brads kit, decorative button is from the original crafty kit, the roses are from the original rose kit, the lacy is the lace from the victorian rose mini kit received through a previous challenge - it's colour is green along with the note paper from the same kit. the circle is the picture and frame from the original crafty kit. the knotted tie is from Deanne Gowe's youth come once kit.

    I made a two-page layout for this challenge. Since the theme is Memorial Day, I thought I'd do my own twist and make a memorial page for my husband's parents, who both passed a few years ago.

    Here's the rundown:
    1) grid - Carena's Natural Breeze
    2) black - the text on page 2 and the shadow text and b&w photos on page 1
    3) clip - Heritage kit
    4, 5, 6) button, rose, lace - Fiona's Victorian Rose mini kit
    7) green - paper scrap from Dina's May Quote challenge (at craftyscraps forum) I used the same paper recoloured for the aqua scrap
    8) circle - in the lace and button
    9) knotted - the bows on both pages
    10) striped - the journal paper from Heritage kit





    This was a fun and "challenging" challenge! I'm going to try to come up with another page for this one.

    Here's a new one....
    Never thought i would use so much pink with a picture of my BOY - but I did. wolvsie - most of this comes from your kits given to us through challenges. Love them too!
    1, 7 & 10) grid paper from last challenge gift and striped is the fruity pink kit papers for backgrounds
    2) black writing and watermelon seeds :0
    3) clip from the original sunset pallett
    4) deocrative button - watermelon button from fruity pink kit
    5) rose from the original scrapbook rose kit
    6 &7) was not sure if the frame counted from your last challenge gift kit, so I also added lace butterflies from Deanne Gowe's belle dentelle kit changed colours to include green.
    8) circle - the fruity button embie from fruity pink kit & the cheerieos thing from the last challenge gift
    9) knotted ribbon on the watermelon button from the heritage kit in the original scrapbook max kit

    First, everyone's looks amazing so far!

    Here is my attempt at this, was definitely 'out of the box' thinking for me .

    Something with a grid (papers in background as well as bow at top)
    Something black (the paper shapes behind flowers)
    A clip (two on each side of paper behind photo)
    A decorative button (the reddish ones going down sides of paper shape)
    A rose (those are obvious also from the country rose kit)
    Something lacey (Under flower clusters)
    Something green (papers and leaves)
    A Circle (the lettering and shapes behind papers)
    Something knotted (under photo and at top)
    Something striped (papers)
