Challenge Monday!

Hey everyone! QT bre here with this weeks challenge! This challenge is inspired by a challenge over at Cat Scrap. I am calling it the "Mad Scientist Challenge" (inspired by one of SuzyQ's newest kits, and because I couldn't come up with a better name!) I had a lot of fun with this one, and I hope you all will have fun too. It may seem tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's all good! :) Here's how it works!

Instructions
There are 4 categories: Element, Number of Times you use the element, Main color, and Inspiration.

To figure out the main element, take the day you were born, add up the digits until you have a single digit. For example, if I was born on the 29th day, I would do this: 2+9=11, then 1+1=2. My element would be a Frame. I was actually born on the 2nd day, so the element I used was a frame.

To determine how many times you need to use that element for your page, take the number of the month you were born. I was born in the 7th month, so I need to use a frame at least 7 times! (you can be creative. I used mine as elements around the main frame in the middle!). If you were born in the 10, 11, or 12 month, you add the digits until you get a single digit (ex. the 11th month would be 1+1=2, so you would use the element 2 times.)

To find out the main color, you add the digits of the year you were born. Example: 1986, 1+9+8+6=24, 2+4=6, my main color is black.

Category 4 is your age and will determine what you should use as your inspiration. I am 22, so 2+2=4. My inspiration is "Favorite pet/animal."

Here are the categories! (If you can't see it, try clicking on it. If you STILL can't see it, let me know!)
You can use other colors/elements, but you need to make sure that those elements are included. Here is my LO for this challenge, using my birthday 7/2/1986 and SuzyQ's Mad Scientist kit. Hope you have fun with this one, I know I did!!

Post the link to your LO as a comment so we can see your creations. Any questions, PLEASE ASK! Thanks for stopping by! :) Winner will receive a $5 GC to SuzyQs store!! Get those LOs done!

What a great and fun challenge.

I needed to scrap my favorite person -- well I have many but I chose my oldest daughter. Using pink and glitter (6 times) I have 4 pink splatters - mostly behind the picture, one green splatter and then green glitter paper for the title.

My layout can be found here:

Wow, what a challenging challenge! My birthday is 2/25/1975. That meant yellow as the color, glitter element used twice, and something I dream about. Harder than it sounds. I was up to the challenge though, here is my layout:
