October Stash Challenge #31 - INKS

Welcome to Stash Challenge #31!!!

Before we get started with our new challenge we would like to introduce the

October Guest Designer
Katrina Hunt
 "I live in Springfield, Missouri with a roomie and four Cardigan Welsh Corgis that are pretty much the subjects in my layouts a lot! If I am not scrapping, I am either at my full time job, watching TV, playing on the iPad or hanging on the computer! I swear, I should have been a tech geek! I started scrapping in 2009 and haven't looked back. The funniest part is, I used to laugh about people buying all the paper, stickers etc. Now, I am the one wondering when the latest and greatest is available. I have been on several design teams, including sketch teams and manufacturer teams. Currently I am on Therm O Web Adhesives, {a flair for buttons} Etsy shop, CREATE magazine, Maya Road and most recently joined the The Cut Shoppe design team. I love the challenge that a design team gives me and I actually scrap better with a challenge."

Thank you Katrina for agreeing to be our guest this month!

Here's the Oct Stash Challenge:  
The challenge is to create a NEW layout and include a STASH item for each letter in the work INKS.  These items should be tangible items and/or the color or manufacture of a tangible item.
Please see challenge guidelines HERE. :) 

Check out this fabulous layout our Guest Designer, Katrina Hunt created inspired by our 

Here's what Katrina shares with us about her layout:
"Hello My Name Is AARP Eligible
I really tried hard to come up with something other than ink for "I", but it didn't work! So, here are the items that I used for each letter of the challenge: I-Ink in my modeling paste to color it; N-Name Tag for title; K-Gold keys; S-Stencil
Thanks for letting me guest design and I cannot wait to see everyone's take on this!"
