Challenge #6 - Color My World!

Hello and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! Our fifth challenge just came to a close and we had even more entries this time than last! Woo-hoo! We really are thankful for all the wonderful paper artists who shared their amazing talent with us! We're so stoked that you're back here with us today and we guarantee more great fun! We have a real "challenge" for you this time - that's why we call them challenges, right?!

The theme for our challenge this time is Color My World!
We want to see your projects created with either pastels
OR primary colors, but NOT BOTH!

PLEASE READ!
For this challenge, we are considering pastels as soft subdued shades, and primary colors as bold bright colors!
No black or brown (any shade) allowed (except inks used for
rubber stamp or digital images)!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred, She Said Designs!


The prize up for grabs is a
$10 gift certificate to the Fred She Said Store!

How awesome is that?! We're so grateful for this sponsorship!

And remember... we're now allowing one additional entry (for a total of three) if you use a sponsor image! But there's a catch... you MUST mention in your blog post which sponsor image you've used and link directly to that image on the sponsor's site, and you MUST put #3 after your name when you link up below so that we know you're going for the extra entry using a sponsor image!

Now, without further ado, check out these awesome DT inspiration projects from our very talented design team! They've been busy creating, just for you...

Newest DT member!

I'm super stoked to introduce to you our newest DT member, Leanne! I was, once again, late-night blog stalking (I told you I was bad about that) and was very fortunate to have found her blog... and even more fortunate to have gotten a "yes" answer to my invitation to join our design team! Leanne is a very talented paper artist and we are so looking forward to her joining our team with our next challenge starting on May 20th! Her blog is Banking on Crafts, so go check it out and leave her some love!




Here's a little something-something Leanne tells us about herself... 

My name is Leanne Elliott and I live in North Central Alberta Canada and have been married almost 20 years to my wonderful husband Brian. Besides the craftiness in my world. I am an Mortgage Specialist Assistant (aka banker), I get to work from home, so with crafting, it works out wonderfully. I started scrapbooking in 2002, and then it turned into card making and other paper crafts. I still do some scrapbooking, but sure do love making cards. I started using Copic Markers a few years ago, and sure enjoyed the art of coloring once again. I love to learn, and sharing my joy in paper crafts, meeting new friends and having fun. 

Welcome to our team, Leanne! We are all looking forward to creating with you! ;)

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Before we get to our DT inspiration projects, we've got some great news to share! As you know, we normally have a limit of 2 entries per challenge. Beginning with this challenge, we're allowing one additional entry if you use a sponsor image! But there's a catch... you MUST mention in your blog post which sponsor image you've used and link directly to that image on the sponsor's site, and you MUST put #3 after your name when you link up below so that we know you're going for the extra entry using a sponsor image!

New DT member!

I'm proud to introduce to you, our newest DT member, Brenda! I emailed Brenda last week after silently stalking her blog (I'm bad about that in the evening) to ask her if she'd like to be a member of our design team. I was super stoked when she said yes! Her work is amazing, so be sure to pay her a visit at Brenda's Scrappy Blog and leave her some love!




A little bit about Brenda...

I live in SW Ohio with my husband of 38 years. I have two grown children, one son-in-law, a four year old granddaughter and a grandson who’s just about to have his first birthday.  I work full time as a sales manager for a steel company, and love to spend my free time working away in my craft room.   I’ve been scrapbooking for about 15 years now. I was always the “photo bug” in the family, so when I saw my first Creating Keepsakes show on a QVC Craft Day, I knew I had found the perfect hobby!   Not only is scrapping a creative outlet, but I love knowing that our stories and photos are being saved for future generations.  When I’m not scrapping (or stamping, cardmaking or quilting), I’m usually spending time with my family, playing with the grandkids, or off on a motorcycle trip with DH.  I look forward to getting to know everyone and seeing all your work on the Love to Scrap challenges!


We are very excited to have Brenda on our team and definitely looking forward to creating with her! Welcome aboard, Brenda! ;)

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT
