Challenge #55: Brought to you by the number 5

This month we have very special guests. We did a Design Team swap with the fabulous girls over at Gutter Girlz.

This challenge is all about the number 5...
We are on challenge number 55 so how fun would it be to use increments of 5.

Ex: 5 different pattern papers, 5 buttons, 5 pictures, 5 misc get the drift....if you use it make sure it is in increments of 5... easy peasy right? This will be a great way to finish off those packages of embellishments that you bought and used a few of them and still have a gazillion left...or better you save your scraps of pp? Pull those out and use them...just make sure you use 5!


Be sure and comment with a link to your *newly created* project so we can see and comment on them. From all entries linked no later than 20th July 2010, 16:00hrs EST we will choose one overall winner, who will be crowned our Queen of the Crap no later than 25th July 2010.

This months sponsor is Jen over at Mommies Ink. She has a fabulous etsy shop filled with lots of options for custom invites. The winner will get to choose an invite that she already has designed in her shop or work with her to create a custom one for any event. Is that cool or what? I have worked with her for Mason's birthday invites and I am super pleased with her work. I will be definitly using her for all my invitation needs from here on out! Please be sure to check her out.
Here is an example of some of the things she does:

I'm such a sucker for hot pink and Zebra :)
Anyway on to the inspiration for this challenge:

Here is what the Gutter Girlz did:






I found this great picture of my mom and niece in the bluebonnets from some years ago ..and made me think of how close they are now and how much she loves those girls ...5 different papers, 5 flowers, 5 brads, 5 label stickers, 5 stamped hearts and a title with 5 letters...thanks for looking ...have fun with this challenge!!!

Michelle Jacknicke:

Hello gang!
I used the number 5 in my title as well as 5 letters for the subtitle. I also used used 5 different tags all over the LO. 5 different dymo label items that best represent my grandpa (jadka) in polish. This is his staple, he has to have these things on him at all times. Like a woman and her purse.

This month we also had another two Guest Designers joining us here at SYC , let's see how they embraced this fun challenge:

I really loved
using the '5' challenge.
Lets see, I used 5 pieces of paper, 5buttons, 5 different colors of
thread/twine, 5 alphabet sticker words, and 5 banners with a word that
had a 5 letter word on them!
Thanks for letting me play along!

Stacy Greening:
