Challenge #15

So, as I'm writing this post, all of the trick-or-treaters are out in full force ... however, none are coming to our door.  We moved out to the sticks this past year and we have very few houses near us.  Strange not to have the porch light on and have all of the little ghosts and goblins running up and down the street.  Quiet.  Extremely quiet.  There is one upside to this situation though:  no candy to tempt me!  I used to buy the stuff I loved ... knowing that there would be some left over for me to nibble on over the next few days ... ok, I usually bought myself my own bag of Mounds (don't judge me!)

Sooooo, anyway ... We're onto Challenge #15 and the debut of our 3 new Design Team Members!  Lisa and I very happy they accepted our offer!  Combined with our returning members, we think our Design Team rocks!  We hope you'll stop by and give them all some blog love ... after all, we all love to get comments on our work! 

Here's the yummy fall palette they had to work with this time around:

To throw a twist in with it, this time around we're challenging you to work with this awesome sketch, created by our talented Design Team member, Christina Collins:

Here are the awesome pages that Team A came up with:

Let's discuss the prize for the month, shall we?!  For November we've got an a gift certificate from Paper Issues up for grab!  To have your name dropped in the prize hat you've got to complete 2 of the 4 challenges for the month of November.  We'll drop your name in the hat twice for the first 2 and if you link up for challenges 3 and 4 we'll drop your name in 2 more times!  So, if you play along for all 4 challenges in November, you'll get 4 chances to win!

Stop on over to Paper Issues and check them out, be sure to tell them that Color Me Scrappy sent you!

You've got until November 14th at midnight EST to link your pages for this challenge ... we can't wait to see what you do with the palette and sketch!  Happy Scrappin!

Also, don't forget about our format changes!  We're excited to mix things up a bit and hope you are too!

Our first change is to go to weekly challenges with a twist.  They will be revealed each and every Thursday and will look like this:
  • color challenge + sketch
  • color challenge + "word"
  • color challenge + technique
  • color challenge + white, black or kraft BG
  • color challenge (for those months with 5 Thursdays)
Each challenge will be open for 2 weeks, which gives you plenty of time to get your LO in.
Our prizes will still be awarded monthly, but the more LOs you complete, the more times your name gets dropped in the hat, which obviously improves your chances to win!!  We are still prohibitive to having only US and Canadian winners due to the cost of shipping, but there is something coming for our international players as well...
We will have a "Top 3" each and every month.  This is voted on by our DT and the winners of this have the opportunity to come back as Guest Designers the following month.
