Challenge #56

Happy Valentines Day to everyone out there in Scrappy Land! Hope you and your significant other had a wonderful night, no matter where you live and what you chose to do! 
 Did anyone find time to be creative yesterday? We chose this color combo to coincide with the Valentine's holiday and we hope you'll find some inspiration from it ... 

The Twist:  Use Wood.  
(Paper, wood chips, twigs ... be creative!)

January Favorites...

And the tally is in...  we had a great turnout for the January challenges.  I think maybe because it has been so cold, at least her in the US, we haven't been able to venture outside much.  That leaves us with a lot of scrappy time!!  Yeah!!

Or DT favorites for January are as follows:

White Rabbit                         Ronazita

Lina                             Ivonne

Congratulations to all our winners.  We would love to have you back as guest designers for the month of March.  Please send me an email at for details.

Challenge #55 and a Design Team Call!

Ah, February 1st ... In Michigan we're VERY glad that January is OVER!  We had a record setting month in terms of snow.  We broke a 106 year old record with 39.2 inches of snow.  I can honestly say that I can't remember a colder month either.  Temps were frigid for many days at a time ... I couldn't make myself do much at all ... laying on the couch under a blanket was about it!  I'm optimistic that Feb will be a better month all the way around!

So, it's time for another CMS Design Team Call!  We should have posted this one a week or so ago, but sometimes life gets in the way and things like this slip our minds.  We're looking for energetic ladies with a passion for scrapping.  You must be willing to commit to 2 pages per month, comment on all entries (everyone likes some blog love!) and have a facebook account.  If you think you've got what it takes, please send us your 3 best layouts from the last 6 months, along with a short bio about yourself and why you want to be part of the CMS family!  The next term will be March 1st through the end of June.

Design Team submissions are due on Feb 10th (we know, that's really not much time!)

Now, onto Challenge #55 ... we just adore this bright, cheery combo!
