Ok – so this is my challenge for y’all! (And I’m thinking I should start a little blog hopping challenge – what do ya think? Once a week? less often? sketch or color or what? Hmmmm……)

Anyway, mine is an idea I started awhile back and then didn’t keep up with. I don’t know about you, but I have tons of patterned paper. And the older stuff….well, it ends up just sitting there. So I decided to try to use it by challenging myself to use One Sheet a week. (OSC – One Sheet Challenge) Not necessarily like a One Sheet Wonder – as there is no template, I don’t care if you use every tiny scrap, and 3-D items are totally acceptable. You are welcome to use other patterns, papers, etc as you like. Wanna play?

Here are the first two I did – {OSC1} and {OSC2}. And here is today’s! This was using a sheet of Fancy Pants Daydreams paper. One side was a solid pink and the other had patterned circles. I ended up making 4 cards from this sheet. I could have used the bits to make more, but it’s late! I also layered a lot using it so it didn’t stretch as far. But really, the idea is just to use some of that pretty paper you have lying around – not to make a huge amount of stuff. That’s just a bonus!
