Take 5 with Paper Issues: It's Your Special Day (Simple Stories Let's Party)

It's time for another Take 5 challenge at Paper Issues. Here's how it works...each month there's a list of items to use as inspiration. Pick 5 of the items from the list and create a paper crafting project of any kind (card, layout, off the page, pocket page, etc.) You can add in other items and use your own ideas, but you must use at least 5 items from the list.

Here's the list for April:

1. the color green
2. the color turquoise or teal
3. the color pink
4. chevron or stripes
5. 3 photos
6. a sticker
7. stars
8. a solid paper
9. a number
10. a tag
11. mist or paint
12. glitter
13. a die cut
14. a square
15. a line from a song (use it in your journaling, as a title, as the sentiment on a card, as part of the design on your off the page project, etc. Show us how creative you can be!)

Link your finished project to the Take 5 Challenge album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

I look forward to this challenge every month. I hope you do too! In case you're wondering, I used #1, #2, #3, #4 and #13 (and then some). :)
