Challenge #56: Anything Goes!!

Welcome back, Users!

Don't forget that Use it Tuesday has a DESIGN TEAM CALL going on until May 31st. Check out the detail at the bottom of this post and...we LOVE when our players apply!

If you've been sitting on the fence about joining in on our challenges, this week gives you NO excuse...it's ANYTHING GOES week here at Use It Tuesday. So dig into your stash, find something OLD to play with...and don't forget to tell us about it. 

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

We're looking to see your fabulous entries on our Use It Tuesday site using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday June 7, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE056 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Since it's Anything Goes, there's lots of variety in our DT projects this week. Here's what we created just for you:

It's Christmas in May with Sherri's beautiful layout.She's been hoarding the remnants of this Crate Paper Peppermint collection for 2 years now. She also came across these photos from Christmas 2010 and had to scrap them right away! The Christmas tree flair button and both pins are also 2 years old.

Stacey went with a celebration more appropriate to this time of year....graduation!! The floss used to tassle up this beauty has been in her stash for more than 10 years and the brad is at least 4 years old.

Stephanie created a greeting card for us this week. The images have been waiting for their turn at the ink pad for over a year and the paper is from a collection that has barely been touched!

Tracy went vintage with this layout....vintage look and vintage craft supplies!! Everything on the layout, aside form the photo, has been in her stash for 4 years or longer!

Danielle also created a card for this challenge, using beautiful scraps and an uninked stamp. 

And, Heather went out of her comfort zone and made a scrapbook layout. The fabric thickers on this page are YEARS old. Same with the journaling tag. And, the butterfly and bows were handmade embellishments given to her as a gift last Christmas.

An easy theme this week with great inspiration...Get Going, Use It!!
