Friday's Executive Reveal !!

What - Friday already ?? We are getting very close to Christmas now. Hope you are enjoying this magical season !!

Friday's posts will now have some midweek inspiration from someone on our Executive Committee. This week it is Kristina, our Social Media Coordinator, (but she does a whole lot more than that !) It takes a lot for us to get up a new post daily, and we are so grateful to Kristina for always keeping us on a nice even keel ! But first, our sponsor this week !

Our first place winner will receive this darling Gingerbread Man Kit from our sponsor the Purple Pumpkin.

At the Purple Pumpkin, they create cute handmade embellishments, especially for scrapbooking and cardmaking. They offer a variety of themed and colour co-ordinated kits, full of handmade flowers, ribbons, and of course BUTTONS!! All of their buttons are made with a perfectly flat back, so they are not bulky, and sit perfectly on your layouts and cards. The buttons are also available on their own, in packs of 3. Additionally, the blog is updated every 3-4 weeks with new buttons and kits, with some designs being available for one listing only, so you have to get in quick, or you might miss out!

Green Holidays
Create an altered holiday gift, card or scrapbook layout
using recycled or repurposed items you already have on hand.


Kristina made a very fun and whimsical card for this challenge. She used the packaging from an Echo Park paper pack to create the background for her card. That along with a few snowflakes left over from last year make this a very "repurpose/recycle Green" project. You can read more about her card on her blog.

Be sure to link up your recycled or repurposed project by tomorrow (Saturday, noon Eastern USA.) You cannot win if you don't enter !! Imagine that.

If you look on our Challenges tab you will see we now have months and months of challenges posted ahead of time. Work at your own pace, then come back to link on Wednesday of that particular challenge week. No other challenge blog offers you this luxury !!

Stop by and visit on our Message Board too !! See you there.

I have planned a major clean-up for next month.

I also wanted to see when I saw your new feature of posting future challenges to give us plenty of time I was in awe! Thanks....that is a GENIUS idea! wink-wink
