challenge 6

Hello lovelies,
How are you all doing?

Me and Miss Renee have been working hard on this next challenge. I loved the idea renee had! It's a step out of the scrapping box for a bit which is good. It allows you to use all your crafting skills. Really most of us are crafters, not just scrap bookers. So with that in mind we bring you:

::: create a monster :::

Our inspiration was drawn from this:
challenge 5

Here's Renee's amazing monster and owl:

So ladies how about it? Bust out all your funky fabric and buttons and felt and show us how creepy or cute your monster can be!

email us a photo or leave a link in the comments, we would love to see what you created!!!

a new way of doing challenges

So ladies I missed scrap laugh love so much!
Ive been thinking of a way to bring it back that would be easier for me and Renee to run.
This is what Ive come up with.

-twice a month we will post on challenge for you
on the 1st and the 15th of every month.
-these challenge will vary, some will be a sketch to follow, some be a card to make, some will be a layout to lift.
-these challenge will be for fun! Just a way to get your mojo going and get you being creative and scrappy!
-sure once in awhile we may have a giveaway but it will not be constant.
-mostly we want to inspire you!!!! to give you a desire to bust out your scrap and craft materials!
-as always if you share you layouts with us we will add them into the reader gallery.

So join Renee and myself on June !st when we debut the first of our new challenges.
