Sept 28 Original Sketch Challenge

Whew! Another Friday with a fabulous weekend on the horizon! Can't wait for some awesome family time and a bit of scrappy time as well. It is always a delight to bring you an original sketch .. this time from co-leader Sandi Clarkson. This is the 4th and final week of September, so it's time to get some of those final projects wrapped before moving on to an awesome October. Nanne has some great Halloween themed challenges all ready and waiting for you next month.

The beauty of today's sketch is clean lines to interpret how you choose along with a larger than normal area for journaling. We  often forget how critical journaling can be when we are a few years removed from the event. We can't wait to see  how you interpret this sketch! 

So, are you ready to be inspired? This team always amazes me with their talent and hard work. Thanks, ladies! Here we go!

Sept 21 Die Cut Challenge ~ We rake, we pile, we jump!

Happy Friday, scrappers! Time for a new Die Cut challenge! We have been doing these for over a year now and they seem as popular as ever! So, have you been wondering what the new Die Cut challenge will be this time? 

Since it is, after all, Fall in the Northern Hemisphere, we are thinking you have lots of photos to scrap with LEAVES! So, any Die Cut that makes you think of the annual event of raking, piling and then jumping in! Use any Die machine or Die Cut tool. We just ask that this be a NEW project as of 9/21/2012 and that it be relevant to this week's challenge. 

Alrighty then, time for the big Design Team reveal. Here we  go!
