Random Prompts Challenge #1 - February 25, 2010

Good morning! Jamie and Monica, your Random Prompts hostesses, are very excited to bring you the first Random Prompts challenge. Your challenge this week is to use a product not intended for scrapbooking on your layout such as an office supply, a photo from a magazine, recycled cardboard, or even a brown paper bag! You can interpret this as loosely as you'd like! This is what the hostesses came up with:

Monica "True Love"
"For the background, I used a piece of cardboard and ripped off parts of the top to reveal the ridges. Then I used Glimmer Mist in Key Lime & Turquoise to create the heart design. Last, I added green paint to the ridges of the cardboard."

Jamie "Gift Bag Mini Book"

Here are a couple of layouts from the design team:
Shannon "Happiness is a Peeanut"
"This little bag is what my husband's new iPhone case came in (got to love Etsy!) and I immediately thought of my daughter. Her grandparents have called her peanut since she was born."

Allison "Coach Love"
"I used a Coach shopping back for the background and most of the accents, including the ribbon!"

We can't wait to see what your interpretation is for this challenge! Please submit your project by 11:59PM CST on Wednesday, March 3.
Submission Instructions:

You may submit as many layouts (or cards) as you want by the challenge deadline and will get one chance at the prize for each entry. Your project must meet the criteria posted by the challenge hosts to be eligible to win. To submit your layout, add the direct URL for your layout to InLinkz. It will be at the bottom of each challenge post. You can link to your uploaded project in a gallery like Two Peas in a Bucket, a Photobucket account, or a post on another blog. Just make sure the URL takes us directly to your project and not just your blog homepage or whole gallery.
The challenge winner will be chosen by a random number generator. Every challenge winner will get a special “Challenge Winner” blinkie to use in their signatures on messages boards or blog posts. We will pool all the challenge entries and do a prize drawing with the random number generator at the end of the month. We may also occasionally have smaller prizes for mini-giveaways, so keep checking back!
