Ceal's Dazzling Entry

Katie's Triple Play Entry


Hi all!!

Alex here - this is my week to host the challenge and I decided to do something a little bit different! I challenged the Design Team to make a scrapbook layout, but not just any layout, it had to contain the following:

(1) Three Buttons

(2) Four Brads

(3) Two different ribbons
(4) Some sort of lettering for the title (chipboard, paint, stamps, stickers)

(5) At least two stamped items

(6) Make the page about YOU with at least five facts listed on your page!

(7) Could be either a 12x12 layout or 8.5x11 layout, but nothing smaller

So, are you up for the challenge?? Of course you are!!! Some of the DT ladies told me that this really stretched their creativity but they are really glad they did it - so, come on and join in!!

You have until 7 PM EST on Thursday, July 31st for your entry to be considered for this week's blog candy, which is sponsored by Jen Glover at the Coconut Scrapshop. Jen was generous enough to donate this awesome Gift Certificate to the lucky winner of this week's challenge - her store is chock full of wonderfully fabulous things, many of which were just shown at CHA last week! So make sure you go on over and check out Coconuts, you will be glad you did!

We can't wait to see what gorgeous creations you come up with - so get to creatin'!

Be sure to check out the DT creations below. Let me tell ya, they ROCKED this challenge! Look at those beauties!
