Challenge # 139 - These are a few of my favorite things

Today is the 26th and I am in the mood for singing a little Sound of Music...........
Create a layout document someone's favorite things.
And use 26 things (or more) on the layout. (things include: pattern paper, brads, flowers, embellishments, alpha stickers).

Michelle: I took the time this weekend to quiz both boys about their current favorites. So I will be creating a layout about my other son very soon....I randomly added brads to the pattern paper. I used more than 26 things.....and it was easy and fun.

Janet M- The challenge was a fun one - I took it back to a heritage page and did it about some of my favorite things when I was 8 years old. I thought coming up with 26 items was going to be hard but as I went on it became more and more fun to find what I wanted and where I wanted to use it. Thanks for the great challenge.

Georgia: I had a great time with this challenge! I decided to do a layout using my 26 all time favourite scrapbook things: In no particular order... Lucy, Eliza, Archie, 2 or more copies of the same photo, black cardstock, white cardstock, october afternoon's fly a kite range, journal cards, american crafts lullaby thickers in sunflower, hat pins, 3D foam tape, handwritten journalling, string, rub ons, zyron sticker maker, pinecone ink, stylus tape, a clustered title, my photo printer, buttons, matting, machine stitching and of course a prompt from HMITM!

Anna-Karin: I loved the favourite-theme and it was lots of fun using 26 things, and much easier than it sounds. I found this cute hot air balloon stamp yesterday and wanted to use it and I thought it fit well together with the patterned paper. I stamped the balloon on two patterned papers and pieced it together. The journaling translates:

My feet, chewing on my fleece blankets, the little cow book, sitting in the carry pouch, be carried, sit in laps and always be with, my cousin’s moon (toy), Piglet, looking at people and smiling, the new frog (soft toy).

Kat: I actually had a bit of trouble with this one! But I got it in the end - I took the "26 things" to mean every time I added something to the page, so it went a little like this...Patterned paper, paint, sewing thread, 4 brads, Photo, doodling, 5 chipboard pieces, 2 sticker letters, 3 chipboard letters, Collections words, photo corner sticker, 3 circle embellishments and 2 rubons, phew!!

Elizabeth: I LOVE doing these kinds of layouts for my kids atleast once a year so I can remember what they were into at a certain age, so this was the perfect challenge for me. And I have well over 26 items due to my fettish with letter stickers :)

Joy: I've done J List layouts before, but it's been awhile. I love compiling lists and just adding a LOT of random stuff. So fun and bright!! I think I have exactly 26 things, but I've counted so many times my eyes are crossed :D

Remember that at the end of the week one lucky participant will be featured as our "How Awesome is Too Awesome - Weekly Wow" and will be in the running to win a RAK at the end of the month!!

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this week! Leave a comment here with a link to your blog showing your layout, or post your layout over at TwoPeas! :)
