Friday Finds 7: Mostly, the Challenge Issue
Good Friday Morning! As promised, I have some fun finds today. A few of them are from sites that I've never really highlighted on my blog before. Yay for something new! I realized as I was lining up the sites for linkage that there were a lot of challenges that I was sharing today. Most run for the entire month so there's plenty of time to fit them into a purty packed schedule.
Ready? Great! Now, let's start with one that is so not a challenge because I live for contradiction.
* Mandy, who runs an amazing blog by the name of For Scrapping Out Loud is hosting a Dusty Attic giveaway. Check these out:
I'm digging them because there appears to be more space on these to have even more fun. The buttons were what drew me in. I've used up pretty much all of my circular chipboard stash and like to design my own buttons.
And for the challenges:
ARTastic Challenge Blog is a site I've visited long ago. It looked fun, but made my newbie head swim. I stumbled upon it again this past week and really like their colorful prompt for March. Check out their blog for all the details:
Scrapbookers Anonymous is suggesting the use of at least 7 flowers on your layout this month. The stipulation is that they are pre-packaged. Considering I'm still trying to use up my flowers from last Mother's Day, this appeals to me.
ScrapFIT is another site I found very early in my blogdom, but felt overwhelmed by. In March, however, it's an easy challenge -- bling it up, baby!
Now, you had to know that I'd share at least a little of Bella's Creations! It's a new month and they've got new challenges. I've already shared their color challenge -- yesterday's post -- but there's more!
They have introduced a new monthly challenge in March; Bella Unique. In the unique challenge, they plan to introduce a new technique for their members to try. Currently, they've introduced "Selective Colorization." Because I want you to go read and enjoy, I'll leave it at that. But I will say it looks so flippin' cool that I'm just waiting and plotting for a moment to capture on camera so I can do this.
They are also bringing back the Tres Chic challenge with a focus on Vintage projects. This month, they are sponsored by the kit club Scraps of Darkness as well. Go check it out!
Drat! It sounds like my time is up. Guess I'd better get my coloring and painting game together! Thanks for visiting!
