We all have our favorite manufacturers, right? Whether it's My Mind's Eye, Tim Holtz,  Basic Grey, Creative Memories, Die Cuts with a View - whatever! We want you to find 3 elements and/or 3 products  from the same manufacturer and use them on a new layout or card. Yo can mix and match sets; you can use paper, inks, stamps, chipboard, stickles - anything you want, as long as they are made from the same company. Tell us what manufacturer you used and what elements or products you chose for your creation. Inspire us to run out and buy, or in this economy, maybe just put it on our wishlist! Complete this challenge and earn yourself 1 Scrappy Football!

Here's an example: This Echo Park set has diecuts, border strips, tags, papers, etc. All of them on a LO (ex compliments of scrapbook.com gallery):

This open challenge was kinda cool.  Normally I don't pay attention to the brand of my stuff, and I don't keep a lot of things in their original packaging, so this gave me an excuse to use a kit that one of my students gave me at the end of the year, along with a paper pack I had bought from WalMart to make a scrapbook starter kit for somebody.  It's all Colorbok stuff, except for the Martha Stewart glass beads and inked edges and a Sharpie marker.

 Dawn..I know what you mean., I do the same! ..we went to a quick quotes weekend last year and i was going to use their stuff...then since I have been doing some of the family cruise pics recently, I remembered that all of the stuff came from one company so that made it easier!
