Just ONE Manufacturer - Challenge 2 (For NSD!!)

Thanks for joining us for our National scrapbooking Day celebrations!!
If you've just joined us you can catch up on the Sketch Challenge here and the Facebook Giveaway here!!
Next Up we Challenge you to:
 "Create with supplies from just ONE Manufacturer!!"

Maybe there is a manufacturer that is your current favourite that you just love!
Do you purchase co ordinating papers and embellishments all from the same collection? If you do grab your latest purchases and create a project for this challenge!
If you are more of a mix and match kinda girl then you will need to take a few minutes to collate some supplies that are all the same manufacturer .... these can be different lines and collections, some old and some new ... just so long as they are all the same manufacturer!  Have a good rummage through your stash - you might find things you had forgotten you had!!
I have lots of favourite manufacturers including Echo Park, Crate Paper, Glitz Designs and Studio Calico. These tend to jump in and out of favour with me depending on how much I like their current collection but one manufacturer that I have been in love with for many, many years and I probably have more of their products in my stash than any other is My Minds Eye .
So for this challenge I have used their brand new collection Sky's The Limit!, some older MME bits from my stash & Mister Hueys which I know are a different manufacturer but as they're inks they're allowed!!
My supplies include: MME Skies The Limit Papers: Ephemera, zigzag, Look, and MME stickers. The Sweetest Thing Word Stickers, Boy Crazy and My Girl enamel dots and Studio Calico Mister Huey Mists (Cash Money and First Kiss). Tools: Martha Stewart Pinking circle punch and Butterfly punch


So, here's what to do if you want to play along with this challenge:
Make a scrapbook layout, card or some other project using primarily supplies from just ONE manufacturer. Exceptions allowed are inks, punches, adhesives and basic tools but all stamps, papers and embellishments must be from the same manufacturer. We'll also allow letters/alphas as an exception but try to use alphas from the same manufacturer too!!
Post your entry on your blog mentioning that it is your entry to this challenge and you must include a link back to this post.
Then using Mister Linky (below) enter the link to your blog so I can come and see!
This challenge will close at 10pm (BST) Saturday 11 May so you have all week to enter.
I will choose my favourite entry to win a prize!! Don't forget to check back here soon after the closing date to see if you are a winner.
If you don't have a blog, don't worry - you can still enter by e mailing your project to me at .... sarah (at) s j papercrafts (dot) co (dot) uk .... obviously turn it into a proper e mail address - just don't want loads of spam robots sending me e mails too!!
Good Luck and Have Fun!
I'll be back soon with another NSD post but in the menatime why not pop over and join in with the chat over on the S J Crafts Facebook Page

I love Echo Park - I entered this onto the EP blog challenge, but it's two different ranges of EP plus MM alphas, as I don't have any EP! Happy NSD, everyone!

Thanks for a great challenge. I used a mix of old and new Studio Calico and got an older photo scrapped.
