Hey OA Friends! Kinsey and Jill here today with this week’s challenge and it’s a fun one so let’s jump right into it! This one is all about the number one…literally. It’s a one of each challenge, and I’ll admit, when I chose this challenge, I was aiming for simplicity- back to school time is hectic so the easier the better for now, ha! I was totally surprised though by how much thought went into every choice because let’s face it, choosing 1 of anything October Afternoon- related is next to impossible…I tend to use multiples of EVERYTHING on my projects and now, I’m proud to say that this challenge pulled me out of my comfort zone and made me really edit my choices more.
So here’s my take on the challenge and for this layout, I used the new Sidewalks line (LOVE!)…
My ‘ones’ are as follows: 1 large font, 1 small font, 1 sheet of pp, 1 pin, 1 photo strip, and 1 tin pin (from Modern Homemaker- couldn’t resist the cat, it was perfect).
My partner in crime today is my sweet friend Jill and she knocked this challenge out of the park! I’m so excited to show you guys what she came up with…
Given my penchant for layering and repetition on a layout, I found this to be a REAL challenge. Only ONE of each item? I was a little worried that it would be like scrapping in a straitjacket. However, it ended up working for me and really stretching me creatively. This challenge made me think about my supply choices, and along the way, I realized that there was still repetition inherent in this challenge -- it just happened to be the repetition of ones. Most of the items that I incorporated on the layout have something to do with my daughter's schedule. For instance, the numbers relate to the Math Team, the singing bird relates to choir, the text paper relates to the Speech Team, and so on. I used the new Sidewalks line here, along with some Boarding Pass and a Report Card pencil stamp. Since I could only choose one sheet of patterned paper, I went with a sheet of Sidewalks "Jump Rope" paper, since it is full of variety and has two distinct A and B sides.
Thanks so much for hanging out with us today! We hope you play along because we LOVE seeing your projects in the flickr gallery and as always, there’s a chance you might find your beautiful work posted right here for all to admire :)
Take care and have a wonderful week!
Kinsey and Jill
