Congrats To This Week's Sketch Challenge Winner!

Congratulations to TAMMEY for being this week's Winner!

Using circles in your paper crafting project can be a bit intimidating, but Tammey did a beautiful job with this week's sketch (as well as all of our participants)! We love the journaling Tammey included describing the "action shots".

Tammey said, "Your mom says you are pumpkin hunting...I say you are gonna drop kick your sister!"

We think you may be on to something there, Tammey! We hope you enjoy spending your 1,000 Cherry Points! Everyone else will receive points sprinkles just for sharing their creations with us.

Look for another scrapbooking challenge, soon!

October 2016 Guest Designer Craft Challenges

We want to give a BIG WELCOME to Krystle (pictured left w/son Nathan).

She's our October 2016 Guest Designer and she's created some amazing layouts to inspire (see below) and has posted three challenges on our Message Board to get you in the paper crafting mood! 

Layout: "Your Best Expressions" - Challenge #1 Color

Krystle says, "My first guest designer challenge is a color challenge. Use only black, white and gold on your layout. I was inspired by My Mind's Eye's "Yes, Please" line, which is completely black, white and gold."
products used:

Layout: "Every Little Bit" - Challenge #2 Baby Spotlight

Krystle says,"I absolutely love creating layouts of my little one! This month, I am challenging you to create a layout that features picture(s) of a baby (any person who is less than 2 years old counts).

Layout: "Sweet Dreams" - Challenge #3 Journaling

Krystle says, "My third challenge is for you to use extensive journaling on your layout (at least two sentences). I don't typically do this, but I am trying to get better at it so that I remember all of the little everyday details!"

One winner per challenge will be awarded a $5 Gift Certificate to Crafts!
Entries must be posted to the corresponding Message Board thread by October 31, 2016 to be eligible to win. Please visit each Challenge Thread for complete details.
