Whew, a challenge a day?! Yes, I need that to stay on top of my goals this year and I bet you could use a little push too ;) March is usually when everyone falls off the wagon as far as Resolutions so let's stick together and meet our scrappy goals–365 pages, here we come!!

So Couture Cardstock is hosting a challenge everyday during March, National Craft Month (they got one for everything, huh? LOL I declare April National Adhesive Month!)…okay so back to the challenge… first post their blinkie on your blog:

Couture Cardstock

Then go over to the Couture Cardstock blog and leave a comment HERE to let them know you posted their blinkie.

Then go to their main blog and create a page for that day's challenge. Here's my entry for today –we had to print something from our computer to use on the project:


I printed the tickets (Print+Cut images from Silhouette America) and they printed wrong so I was going to trash this whole sheet of tickets and then I got the idea for this page. So I cut the tickets out and then cut them in half and used them on opposite end of the page — a border on the right (“True Story”) and as journal spots on the lower left. HI had a blast making this page, just piling stuff on from my stash. These are some pics I've been sitting on for 2.5 years because I just could not get a layout to “work” with them — I think this one works ;)


Love the resist effect from these Am Crafts clear stickers and spray ink!!

Is that sticker not perfect, or what?! Love these buttons …


Supplies:
Paper – Scenic Route (grid), Bo Bunny (pink), American Crafts (banner), Prima (pink stars), Sassafras Lass (scallops)
Cardstock – Bazzill, The Paper Company

Head on over for your chance to win: the more people who enter, the bigger the prize pack will be!! So share this with your fellow crafters then get on over to Couture Cardstock to enter to win. Like I say, you never know what will happen–look at all that loot I won from Imaginisce last month, just for leaving some comments in a random drawing.

Best of luck and…
Happy Creating!!!
