Challenge # 99: We're going to party like it's 1999!





For challenge# 99 we are going to party like it's 1999 (showing my age here):

Create a party on your layout by use products from 19 different manufacturers! Really, it's not going to be as difficult as you think - if you use a stamp and ink from two different manufacturers then count both of them, don't forget brads, staples, floss - try to find items made by different manufacturers. It's fun, I promise! I kept a running list beside me when I added a new product to the page - that way I could keep track of what I had used.

When you are done, don't forget to post a link to your layout on the HMITM thread in the pub.

Paula:

My dh tells me this should say three Amigas but this will work - right? I used papers from 12 different manufacturers - it was fun digging through my scraps for this one.








Debbi T:





We were having a yard sale, and at the end of the day, we discovered my sister had a 75 cent sticker stuck right next to her crotch. My prim and proper sister wouldn't let me take a photo of exactly where it was--she moved it to a less naughty spot for this picture!


I had fun digging through my stash, too, and I was really glad to use some old letter stickers from my overgrown stash.



Francine:

This is one of my favourite quotations and I took this photo back in May with the idea to do a scrapbook page about it.


This wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, in fact once I got going I had a hard time limiting myself to only 19! I started out with 12 patterned paper companies, and used my Slice to cut the scalloped frames from scraps.


Michelle: Well unlike the other girls....even after I moaned and groaned....this was still so so so hard for me. But I did it. And I really dug deep into my stash for this one. So it does feel good....




Debi:



Okay, so after MUCH complaining (mostly just to Paula) about this challenge it truly wasn't as bad as I thought! Once you get started it was fun. I just kept going to different areas in my scrap room to look for other manufactures. I have to say I was more than a little shocked when I didn't even use 1 Heidi Swapp product.... shocking !!!
