Challenge #16 - Play Some Blues!

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! A big thanks to those who played with us in our "Recipe" challenge! We love crafters who appreciate a real "challenge" and we knew our Recipe would be challenging! Be sure to check back within this next week to see our Winner and Top 3 picks!

Want to guest design for Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog? We'd love for you to be in our Guest Designer Spotlight! See the tab above for all the details! Just add GDT after your name when you link up and you'll be entered into 'the pool' from which one lucky crafter will be picked to guest design for us each month (that's two challenges)!

Now, on to our challenge...
This is going to be a fun one... it's Play Some Blues!

We challenge you to create a project using shades of blue!
Small bits of element-appropriate colors in addition to the blue (such as skin, lips, hair/fur, leaves, trees, etc.) will be allowed but your project must be primarily blue!
And you can use any rubber/clear or digital stamp you want!
[That means we want to see stamping on your project!]

Our sponsor for this challenge is the awesome Delicious Doodles!



The prize up for grabs is 4 images of winner's choice!
How awesome is that?! We're so grateful for this sponsorship!

And remember... we normally allow 2 entries per challenge but we'll allow a 3rd entry if you use an image from Delicious Doodles! But there's a catch... you MUST mention in your blog post which image you've used and link directly to that stamp on the Delicious Doodles 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 talented guest designer in our Guest Designer Spotlight and our design team! They've been busy creating, just for you...
