3 Product Challenge (Nikki's Challenge)

Hello scrappy Friends. I was going back and forth on awesome challenge ideas I could do for my first Little Red Scrapbook DT challenge post on this blog and came up with some pretty fun ideas, but then remembered a challenge I used to look forward to every week, that was done by a couple of my favorite scrapbookers years ago (2006 I believe) and I remembered how so many scrapbookers loved the challenge and how it pushed us to be more creative with our scrapbook supplies.

So I thought I would give this challenge a try here and see what you thought of it. If it's a hit like it was a few years back, maybe I will make this my new monthly challenge each month, it's up to you and how many people will come join in on it.

So my challenge for you this month is a three (3) product challenge (I have also heard these challenges called a recipe challenge). I will list 3 products you will need to use on a layout. Don't really make layouts because maybe cards are more your thing? That's okay, then use the 3 products on your card.:D

The 3 items that need to be used for this challenge are...

1. Older patterned paper line/collection
2. Chipboard
3. Buttons

You must use these three items on your creation! I chose "older patterned paper line/collection" because of this post HERE. Which was talking about older scrapbooking paper lines, companies and products we missed and loved that are no longer around.

So lets dip into our supplies (you know all that stuff we hoard :D  ) and get started on this challenge. You can post a link here in the comments of this post with a link back to where you posted your work, (your blog, online gallery, etc) or you can upload it to the Little Red Scrapbook challenge gallery HERE and link back in a comment on this post as well.

And to get you going a little more on this challenge, I will be offering a little "PRIZE" package to one lucky person (picked at random) who posts a link to their finished layout/card (if you are going to make a card, I ask that you make 2 with this challenge to make it more fair to those who are making layouts, Thanks :D ) in the comments section of this post, plus please post your email address so I can email you and get your info, to get this package out to you if you are the lucky winner. I will pick the winner on May 21st, so you have TWO weeks from today, to get this done.

I will be posting my layout/take on this challenge shortly, so please check back soon. I can't wait to see what you all do with this challenge. If you liked or maybe LOVED this challenge, please leave a comment letting me know, so I can see if this will be a challenge we can continue in the future.

Happy scrapping! :D

I think its an awesome challenge!! The old gets left behind when the new comes in, so it will be a great way to start finding and using that old! And yes from me on continuing that challenge!!
