Congratulations to Jinny!!

Her fabulous take on Challenge #9 has got her the DT Fav this time around.

We loved the tone on tone details of the octagons and the title and the layering was ideal.

Nice work Jinny!

Challenge #10

I feel like we have a little celebration on our hands.  We are onto double digits...  Challenge #10.  I know that it's not the same as saying we are at Challenge #100, but I'm excited, none the less.

I hope you had fun with the last combo challenge.  Let me know whether or not you liked it and maybe we can try it again.

Remember that for the month of August, we have 4 pads of 6X6 paper from My Minds Eye that are up for grabs.  Let me just say that they are fabulous.  I can't wait to pop them in the mail to one lucky winner!

Challenge #10

This next challenge looked a bit scary to me when I first saw it, but I quickly began to change my mind when I started pulling paper out.  Much to my surprise, I had lots to choose from with the exception of the hot pink.  I have 2 boys and pink is just not in my realm of colors.

Color Me Scrappy is honored to have the Design Team that we have.  They continue to amaze on each and every challenge.  This challenge is no different.

Have fun!

Challenge #8 Design Team Fave and July Winner!

The weather around here (Michigan) has been GORGEOUS over the last few days and I've had a really hard time forcing myself to sit at a computer ... or in my scrapbook room, for that matter!  I just want to be outside in the sunshine ... it makes me happy! 

For all of the Olympics addicts out there, were you as heartbroken as I was when McKayla Maroney couldn't find her feet on her second vault?   She was such a HUGE favorite for the gold medal and came up short, winning the silver.  You know she probably stuck the landing on that vault the last 100+ times she practiced it ... but just couldn't seem to pull it off when push came to shove ...

Anyway, back to the business at hand:   Design Team Fave and Random July Winner!

First up is Challenge #8 Design Team Fave.  It was a really close race, but in the end Monia was the winner!  Congrats, Monia!  Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creation with us!

Here's the Random Winner for July ... remember, we're choosing one winner from both July Challenges.  Don't forget that you get one entry for each page you link up!  The July prize is a $19.99 gift certificate to

the random generator chose: #10 ... Andrea Eason, that's YOU!   Congratulations and thanks for sharing your layout with us!  Please send your email address to and we'll get your gift certificate sent right out!

Challenge #9

I don't know about the rest of you, but I've truely become an Olympics addict this week.  I tried to scrapbook for a bit, but I think I heard my TV calling my name.  The Olympics are on nearly 24 hours a day.  I may not be sitting and watching all the time, but it is being listened to.

Are there any others like me?

Up for grabs this month is 4 pads of double-sided 6X6 My Minds Eye paper.  These paper packs are really cute!  We have paper from the following lines:
  • A Happy Heart
  • All Spice
  • Honey Cake
  • Everyday Flair

Good morning world and welcome to Challenge #9.  We've mentioned before on the site and on Facebook that we were having a "special" challenge this go around.  And special is really what it is!  I'm excited to announce that we have combined with Sketches in Thyme for this challenge.

So, in addition to the color combination that we provide, the challenge is to use their sketch.
