Challenge #138 Patterned paper

Challenge #138

Welcome to another challenge here at Use Your Stuff!  It's Anne. I am a new dt member here and am very excited to be hosting my first challenge this week, which by the way is super easy!  This week I'd like you to dig into your stuff and use patterned paper on your project!  We all have it and after using only half or some of the paper I know you have some leftovers!

Here's a little inspiration to get you started.  I thought I'd use some family photos from Easter, so you could start to get to know my little family!

Please remember to link your project back up here.

This was an 'easy peasy' challenge for me as I rarely use solid cardstock other than black or white.  Years ago I started a second heritage album with all the titles being the year of the picture(s).  Here is one from 1940 of my in-laws.  I apologize for the picture quality, but you scrap what you have, right??

Patterned paper is something that I have A LOT of :)  This was a great challenge to break into some that I've not touched in a long time.  This particular bunch is from a CTMH set called I think Superstar.  I just love the fun boy colors, perfect for layouts of Riley :)

I have a ton of patterned paper too but I generally use solid colors for the background so this was a great challenge! This is my little man at three months old.

I'm joining the UYS as a DT for the first time, gladly playing along Anne's pattern paper challenge. I got to admit I have stashed up papers and really need to reduce the papers  The red bold paper is from October Afternoon, one of the Xmas range (totally love this one) while the dull green is from Webster Pages just to pair up to give the constrast
