Weekly Challenge - Patterned Paper

Hi there! Happy Monday! Hope you are all having a great day and gearing up for a fun Thanksgiving! Personally I can't believe it is already here, but I am trying to ignore the fact that it is almost Christmas so that I can enjoy each day and focus on Thanksgiving first!

Joy and I have the blog this week and we thought that we would focus on Gratitude since it is only fitting, with Thanksgiving being just around the corner!

So, today I am issuing the weekly challenge and it has 2 parts:

1: Use 8 (or more) DIFFERENT patterned papers on a layout or project.

2: Focus on the theme of GRATITUDE for your project.

Yep, that is right -- I said 8 (or more) patterned papers! This will be fun! It is a great way to use up some of your leftover scraps or papers from previous kits. It is also a fun way to experiment with mixing different patterns. You know me - I love to mix patterns and colors and even things that don't necessarily seem to go together. If this is intimidating to you or if you are one that tends to stick to coordinating products, then it will be a great push to think outside the box!

You have until this Saturday to complete the challenge. I will be back to share my layout and I will also draw a winner for a $5 Studio Calico gift card! To enter the drawing you will need to complete the challenge and post it to SC and then come back here and leave us a link to it (on this post). Good luck and have fun!!
