Join me at the first Candy Shoppe Designs challenge!! It's a Strip Tease challenge inspired by me. If you have been reading my blog for a while you might remember a Five Fridays post I did a while back about “stripping” — using paper strips that is!! This challenge was inspired by that technique.

Post your entry for the challenge in the comments section and you'll have the chance to win this FABULOUS kit from the Bad Girls Club for playing in September!!!

What you have to do??? Strip, strip, strip!!! how us how you strip!!!

The concept of this Challenge is easy! Simply use “strips” of something on your Paper Creations. There's NO LIMIT to what you can use. There are rules though. For one, you will have to include these colors somewhere on your Paper Creation(s) and the “cream” color must be the dominant color.

You can submit any “Paper Creations”….You do not have to create only Scrapbooking Layouts.

OH!!! And you have up to September 14, 2009 to link your designs!!!

And look at the blog candy specifically for this challenge… YUMMY

Here's my take on the challenge:

I pulled out the box of gold embellies and dusted them off for this one-I cannot stand gold but I made it work ;) That's the beauty of challenges, making you think outside of the box. And sometimes it just works, you use up your stash…I LOVE challenges!!

Book Club tonight was postponed for a month–with the fires, me possibly having an ear infection, one of our members is also sick, and the books not arriving (ugh!) we decided to delay. That just gives you another month to sign up!! I'll post some sneaks of the goodies I have in t e first two kits tomorrow. I can tell you you'll be getting cool felt items, Glimmer Mist, loads of sequins, lots of paper, party goodies, and more!!

If you've never joined Book Club you should. No, we do not read books every month! We use an an idea book as inspiration to create, try new techniques and supplies, and make friends. We have an awesome, friendly, creative group –new members are always welcome!!

You can see all the details to the left–I'll post a little more info and some pics tomorrow.

Happy Crafting!!
