February Take 5 Challenge - Paper Issues

Hello friends! Here's my newest layout for the "Take 5 Challenge" that I host over at Paper Issues.  In case you are new to Take 5, here's how it works: I give you a list of items to use as inspiration and starting point for your project. From that list, you pick 5 items to use on your project. You can combine your own ideas too, but to play along you must use at least 5 items from the list!! You could even win a gift card to the Paper Issues store!!!


The challenge items items I used are: a heart, patterned paper, a sticker, an arrow and something gold. Here's the complete list, and remember, you must use at least 5 items!

1. the color red
2. the color pink
3. the color turquoise or teal
4. three photos
5. a heart
6. patterned paper
7. a sticker
8. a tag
9. a stamp
10. cardstock
11. foam dots or squares etc. anything to give dimension
12. an arrow
13. ink, mist or paint
14. something gold
15. wood grain (this can be wood veneer, patterned paper etc. anything with a wood grain!)

For my layout, I used pieces from Crate Papers Hello Love collection along with a few things from Crush by We R Memory Keepers. I really like how the two collections work together so well, and are perfect for current pictures or old black and whites, like this photo of my great-grandparents from 1941.

Be sure to post your entry by March 6 in the Paper Issues {friends & fans} facebook group, in the February Challenges album to be entered in the drawing, we're giving away two gift certificates to the Paper Issues store!! How about playing along, I'd love to see how creative you are!
