Happy Tax Day here in the US! Today is the deadline to file taxes and then any of our friends or family who are accountants can breathe a sigh of relief for awhile! This week’s Challenge I am spotlighting is the Mix It Up Challenge. I love this one because every month it is different! This month’s challenge is hosted by Sherry Ferguson and she has challenged us to scrap about food!

Challenge Spotlight April 8th

Happy April! Spring is in the Air and that’s the challenge I will be spotlighting today! Love Ewe Designs is hosting the Inspiration Challenge and the inspiration for this month is SPRING! This can be interpreted so many ways, blooms, baby animals, activities that start in the spring, etc. There are so many possibilities to make a LO inspired by Spring! And as always, this LO would count towards the 10 you need to get a fabulous collab kit by our lovely designers!

Check out April’s!

And now you can get the challenge collab when you complete 10 LOs. Say you had a very busy month in March and only logged 3 challenges, well do 7 more for April and you will receive this collab! The challenges will carry over and when you complete 10 challenges, you will receive that month’s collab! How cool is that! Just make sure you log your challenges in our cookie jar (click on the collab pic to go to this months tracker)

Challenge Spotlight~ March 18th

Happy Tuesday! We have two weeks left in March! Spring is almost here! I am hoping Mother Nature Remembers Spring starts at the end of the week and we see more springlike weather! But if you’re stuck inside with bad weather, there’s always scrapping to keep the blues away! This week’s spotlight is on the Inspiration Challenge hosted by Monica of Violamoni Designs. This challenge is great if you are stuck in a rut and need a little something to get your creativity flowing! This month’s challenge inspiration is a quote:

Another great thing about this challenge is how you interpret it! Some people used the quote on the page, others scrapped pictures from a beach getaway, another was inspired by the blue and the green! If something about the quote inspires you, scrap it and post it in the forum! Post 10 Layouts from our challenges and get this awesome collab kit for the month of March:

Here are some LO’s from this month’s Inspiration Challenge:

How did it end up being March already? But since it is March, that means there’s a new collab kit to earn! How do you earn it? That’s easy! You just participate in 10 of our challenges and you will receive this awesome collab!

Once you have completed 10 challenges and recorded them in our tracking thread,  you will be private messaged the code to grab the kit at the beginning of next month! It’s that easy! One of the first challenges I like to complete is the Buffet Challenge. Usually I have bought a few new kits from the fabulous Buffet and I am eager to use them!

Challenge Spotlight February 25

Good Morning everyone! There’s only 3 days left until the end of the month! But that’s plenty of time to complete some challenges to earn the fabulous collab kit offered this month! This month I tried a challenge I had never tried before. I mainly work with templates but I decided to try my hand at scraplifting! This month’s Scraplift Challenge is hosted by Jill from Created by Jill. She chose two wonderful LO’s from our members for anyone to try their hand at scraplifting. Now this is not trying to recreate the LO exactly as it is, this is so you can pick one or several techniques, colors, clustering or elements to recreate with your own flair!

Here are the two LO’s she picked for us to scraplift. They are linked to the gallery so go and leave some love if you find them as stunning as I do!

I was attracted to the first page and here is my scraplift LO:

I loved the photomask and the soft splatters in the background of the first LO. I enjoyed this challenge and some of our other members put their spins on the scraplift as well! Here is more inspiration from the challenge!

There is still time to complete your ten challenge layouts to receive this wonderful Collab!

Remember to complete the challenge tracking before the end of the month!

Happy Tuesday! We are a few days away from Valentines/Single Awareness Day? Any special plans for the night? Valentines Day is not big at our house since our wedding anniversary is two days later. Somehow I always end up with a card =). Today’s featured challenge is the Mix It Up Challenge. I love this Challenge since it is never the same twice. This month it is hosted by Sherry Ferguson! She has challenged us to make a page about the ones we love using song lyrics. This challenge is perfect for a LO about the special people/pets in our lives.

Remember we have a new Challenge System in place! Complete 10 challenges and get an awesome collab from out wonderful designers! Each month there is a different kit! Here is February’s:
