September Challenge Time!

Well, the month of September has FLOWN by!  I couldn't actually believe when I went to write this post that it was challenge time again! And there were a few of you that played along with our Divas in August to "Scrap an Object".  Which means we need to announce a winner.

Mary Pat Shiel, YOU are the challenge winner!!!


We loved the fact that we got you to scrap something that you had been putting off!  And the We Are Family collection was a perfect choice for your beautiful house picture!  

Please email me at cardipaws@sbcglobal.net with your choice of one of the new collection kits and your mailing information and we will get your prize in the mail to you!

Which brings us to September's challenge!  

"Scrap a Size You Don't Normally Scrap"

So, if you usually scrap 12 x 12 well, mix it up...scrap 8x8, 6x6, 12x6....you get the idea.  And card girls, if you usually make cards in standard sizes, change it up...make a shaped card, a long skinny rectangle card...you get the picture!!!

So, let's see what everyone has come up with!

First is Jill Hildebrand, who WOWED me when I got these!  



Next up we have Deana Boston, who scrapped the 8.5 x 11 size!

She used the My Lil Monster and School is Cool collections!

And then Julie Tucker-Woleck scrapped this wall hanging that she is giving away on her blog to teacher.  Here's the link!

She used the School is Cool collection!


Then Ria Mojica created this adorable layout with Get Well Soon!



And then I scrapped an 8.5 x 12 size!

I used You're A Hoot for my layout, along with the Cute as a Button buttons and the Warm and Cool Corduroy Brads.


And that's it from the Divas!

So, we want YOU to play along!!  Just make a layout following the guidelines above for "Scrap a Size You Do Not Normally Scrap" and use at least 75% Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker products.  It does not matter if it is an older or newer collection, we just want to see them!

Leave a link to your blog post or gallery with a picture of your completed challenge entry on this post by October 29th.  We will pick one winner and announce them on October 30th, when we announce the next challenge. The winner will get to pick one of the new collections kits of their choosing!

Have a Scrappy Kinda Day!!~~Katrina

What a challenging challenge! I don't think I've ever scrapped anything other than 12x12 or made a card that was not a square or rectangle, so this should be fun! :-D Fab inspiration by the dt...TFS!
