May Scrap Mix Challenge!

Hey everyone! QT bre here with this weeks challenge! This challenge is inspired by a challenge over at Cat Scrap. It's called Scrap Mix and is a lot of fun with this one. I hope you all will have fun too. It may seem tricky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty simple. We've played it before, but I've changed things up a bit. Here's how it works!

Instructions
There are 4 categories: Element, Main Color, Main Paper, and Inspiration (based on someone you know!)

To figure out what your main elemet should be, 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 main elements are buttons. I was actually born on the 2nd day, so I should use buttons somewhere on my LO.

To determine the main color, take the number of the month you were born. I was born in the 7th month, so my main color is purple! 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 black is your main color.)

To find out the main paper you should use, you add the digits of the year you were born. Example: 1986, 1+9+8+6=24, 2+4=6, my main paper should be plaid.

Category 4 is your age and will determine what you should use as your inspiration. We all have many different people in our lives, so you should use that as inspiration. If the number you should use does not WORK for you, go ahead and pick on that does. To determine which person is your inspiration, take your age, add it until you get a single digit, and have fun. I am 22, so 2+2=4. My LO should be about one of my parents.

Here are the categories! (My computer had a meltdown, so I am without photoshop! :( I won't bore you with the details, lol, but hopefully this will work the same!)
