These are all so rad! Make sure you swing by the gallery and leave these ladies some love on these very cool desktops. :)

I don’t know where October went, but we’re already wrapping up the month–what?! I can’t believe we’re in the holiday home stretch already. If you haven’t started your post in the October 2013 Tracking Thread, well…you should get on that. ;) Seriously, don’t miss out on snagging a reward come next month just in time to start scrapping all your holiday pics!

That’s it for this week, y’all. I’ll see everyone back here next week! :)

Challenge Spotlight – Desktop Challenge

Hi, all! Since this is the last challenge spotlight of the month, I’m going to dive right in with an easy one that comes with a freebie! This week I am spotlighting the desktop challenge hosted by Tracy of Trixie Scraps Designs! This is a great challenge to end the month with since it’s a quick one that starts with a freebie template and ends with you having a fun new desktop wallpaper for August! Check out the template Tracy created for us:

LOVE IT! Then again, I always love Tracy’s templates. :)  There are lots of layers here to play with and I love photo spots on desktops. Check out some inspiration from the gallery:

Love all of these wallpapers; great job, ladies! I wanted to pick three with different designers’ kits and color schemes so you can see how easily customizable this template is. I still need to get mine in, but anyone who knows me knows all my desktop wallpapers have a common theme… ;-)

HOKAY. July ends this week, ladies–eek! You’ve got through Wednesday to get any challenges completed and recorded in order to get a sweet reward come August! Make sure your post in the July 2013 Challenge Tracking Thread is updated and tallied up.

That’s it for this week…and this month! See you in August! :-)

Good morning! How is everyone’s April going? It’s mid-terms for me right now, so I am feeling the crunch and in need of some relaxing.

I love when three people can take one template and each come up with something completely different! That’s definitely the mark of a good designer and talented scrappers–both of which we have in spades at GS! Make sure you click through and leave some love for each of these ladies’ desktops. :)

Remember that super sweet reward I mentioned earlier? Well, take a look at what you could get for playing along with our monthly challenges: one buffet item, two buffet items or a $5 store gift certificate–awesome! Just make sure you start keeping a running tally of your completed challenges in the April Challenge Tracking thread. If you have any questions about how this or any of our other monthly challenges work, stop by the Cookie Jar and ask away! :)

Okie doke ladies, that’s it for me this week. Start working on your challenges, have a great day and an awesome week! :)

Challenge Spotlight – Desktop Challenge

Good morning, all.  Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It was a rainy, cool weekend here in Texas and I was finally able to get some scrapping and crafting done. It’s mid-month and I’m trying to get some more challenges done. This week’s challenge spotlight is on the January 2013 Desktop Challenge hosted by Ivonne of Craft-tastrophic Designs! Next month will be Valentine’s and Ivonne has created a lovely desktop template to celebrate the holiday of love:

I just love pink and hearts, so decorating for Valentine’s is one of my favorite things.  Might as well decorate my desktop, while I’m at it! :) If you’re not a Valentine’s fan or a pink and hearts kind of gal, here’s some inspiration for you:

Beautiful takes on this template. I of course love Lydia’s hot pink and glitter desktop! I also like the boy-ish direction Yavonn went in and the cool, wintery blues Sarah used. There are a lot more lovely desktops already completed, so stop by the thread if you want some more inspiration or just want to leave some love for the talented scrappers. :)

If you haven’t already, you’ll need to swing by the January 2013 Challenge Tracking thread and start your tracking post. All your completed challenges will be tallied at the end of the month and you’ll get a reward based on how many you complete! Completing just one challenge gets you a reward, so make sure you jump in soon. If you want more info or have a question about any of our monthly challenges, you can post in the Cookie Jar and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

That’s it for this week’s challenge spotlight. See you next Tuesday! :)
