Make Me Use My Stuff Challenge

Moving this challenge to the challenges section.

Okay, I think we all need a little push to do some scrapping and to use some of the stuff in our stash. Therefore, I'm starting a "Make me use my stuff!" challenge. Here's how it works:

First, I'm posting a list of 10 items that I have in my stash that I want to use. It could be general things, like "shaped buttons" or specific things, like "Basic Grey Skate Shoppe paper." Specific groups of pictures to scrap is also okay for your list.

The next person to join the challenge gets to pick one item from my list and challenge me to use it on a layout or card, thus "making me use my stuff." Then she posts her own list of items. This goes on as long as the challenge is active, with each new participant challenging the previous participant to use an item from her list.

After you finish a layout or card with your challenge item, you can post a new list to the challenge thread and play again. It can either be the same list with one item replaced, or an entirely new list of stuff in your stash.

ETA: There is no time limit on creating your layout. However, you cannot post a new list until you have finished your challenge LO, so it is to your benefit to complete your challenge quickly.

Anybody can join in at any time by posting to this thread with the challenge for the previous person and a list of her own. Please note that there may be a time lag between when you post your list and when the next person joins the challenge to challenge you. If you are really antsy to get started, I challenge you to use three different patterned papers from your stash on a layout. ;-)

There are no prizes for this challenge other than the satisfaction that comes from finishing another layout AND using something from your stash in the process.

Let's try to keep this thread only for the challenge itself. If you have questions, post them in a separate thread.
