    Oh yes, you have to put up with me all month long!

    Using either your name or the name of the person in your photograph(s) you are to make a page using the items listed below:

    The List:
    A = Animal (real or plush)
    B = Button or brad
    C = Cluster (attached to a frame is allowed)
    D = Denim
    E = Eyelet
    F = Frame
    G = Gold item
    H = Heart
    I = Insect
    J = Jewel
    K = Key
    L = Lace
    M = Metal
    N = Note, journal paper
    O = Outer Space
    P = Posed character (must be human style posed character not an animal)

    X = Xtra large arrow
    Y = Yarn (I will allow stitches to count as yarn)
    Z = Zip, zipper


    Once you have chosen either your name or the name of a person featured on the page you must use the letters of that name to make up the list of items you are to have on your page.
    For example: Fiona = Frame, Insect, Outer Space, Note journal item, Animal (these 5 items must appear on my scrapped page.

    You may add extra items to your page to complete it, you may be using some items you have not used before and some strange combinations, this should make for some very inventive scrapping!

    Rules:

    1) Scrap a page using either your name or the name of a person featured on the page.

    2) Using each letter from the name you have chosen gather the corresponding items from the alphabet list to use on the page.

    3) All pages must be uploaded to the gallery and the link or image placed in this post.

    4) The name you used plus the letter items must be mentioned in your post.

    5) Challenge ends Sunday 29th May 2011

        So here is mine....
        M - metal plate
        a - rhinocerous animal
        r - ribbon in the cluster
        c - cluster of stars, ribbon and moon
        0 - outerspace - stars and moon in cluster, along with the close up moon background.
        Most of this kit was the original moon kit included in the original purchase, metal plate for silver solitude in original purchase, the ribbon and bow are from the Katie's brothers kit, and the rhinocerous was part of a challenge prize of zoobabies from Michelle McCoy.

                    OK found myself some scrapping time!

                    I used our granddaughter's Turkish name, Ezgi, so the items were:

                    E: eyelet, behind the name
                    Z: zipper, holding the photo in place
                    G: gold item, I've used several, a gold watch, a gold loop, a gold and pearl button and a gold paper clip
                    I: insect, the dragonflies



                    Most of my items come from Fiona's kits:

                    Dragonfly Dreams
                    Momento
                    Past Lives
                    Sunflower Memories

                    and a couple of items were my own.

                        Clearly I have way too much time on my hands as this is the third layout I have done for this challenge this week and we are only Wednesday. I will try and tone it down!
                        Was not sure if it only had to be what was there in the name, but I did the boys. Hope the frame does not disqualify me for this entry
                        T - tear or ripped used paper from memories kit, with Carena's page starter shape
                        h - heart used paper again for the memories kit with carena's page starter shape
                        e - eyelet used from sunset pallet in the original purchased kit
                        b - buttons from Katie's memories kit
                        o - outerspace was difficult cause it did not really fit, but i added a star from Katie's brothers kit in brown, think it works nicely
                        y - yarn - used stitching from Katie Castillo's brothers kit
                        s - staple - used from Michelle McCoys me and my dad kit
                        oh yeah, the frames and backgrounds were all from Katie's memories kit

                            d-demin

                              This is the first time I've participated in a challenge, so let's hope this works out!

                              I chose a photo of my daughter Sarah and so these were the items I used:
                              S - staple
                              A - animal
                              R - ribbon
                              A - animal
                              H - heart

                              This was fun and I can't wait to do another one!
