About the creators

I wanted to take a moment and thank all of the people that have allowed me to share their work. All of the postings have the links to the original posting - click on the name of their site. If you find something that you really enjoy please take a minute to go to their site and leave them some love!! Without them, without their permission this would not exist. I try not to get to many from one person - unless what they have is so unique. I do not get anything in return from them...but let them know you found them here with me Jackie at Glitter Fantasies.

May Monthly Challenge 2011

Since there was a confusion about how to submit your entries I will extend this month for wedding theme to June 16

I wasn't sure if I should start doing challenges this month...but since the Royal Wedding and it seems that a number of you have watched or wished they had watched. The challenge theme will be weddings!!

The contest will start on May 1st and all submission should be in by 25th. A winner will be announced on the 27th.

Guidelines for this challenge
Be a follower
Submit a photo of a card, layout or any paper related project
Wedding theme - you can use whatever you wish to create it

When you submit your project feel free to include your blog or site and a name that I can add to photo. All photos will be added to one posting.

Winner will be chosen on the 27th and given 4 days to respond. If no response I will choose another winner until someone responses. I have no idea what I am giving away this month...will most likely be a gift card to JoAnne's, Pat Catan's or Michaels as I have these 3 near me...no Hobby Lobby sorry.

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment, make sure I have a way to email you.
Remember to have fun!!!!

Monthly Challenges Info

The first challenge will run through May 2011, all submission will be due by the May 25th. The theme will be weddings!!

This is just the basic information for the monthly challenges - details specific will be posted for that month. I decided to do a monthly challenge and I hope you join along! There will be some sort of prize for product used or from company of the month.

Begins 1st of every month
Ends 25th of every month
Winner selected by random generator on 27th and notified
Winner will have 4 days to respond or another winner will be selected until a response is received.

The challenge can be anything you wish to do...card, layout or whatever you wish to create.
Either a specific product or a company will be chosen each month to use
You will need to submit a photo and it would be great to include basic items you used - you don't have to go into details such as specific c/s, if you used Copics you don't need to provide every color. It would be nice just to have a general idea of what you used since the idea for my blog is learning things and getting ideas.

Here are ways to get chances to win...this will become clearer when I post the challenges
Please be a follower - don't have to leave a comment, go anywhere else..just be a follower

If you use a similar product - 1 chance
Use actual product of challenge - 2 chances

100 Blog Candy

Well I had to pick another winner...off to random generator
Congratulations Deborah King!! And thank you to everyone!

Well it looks like I am getting close to a 100 followers and decided it was time to get some candy together. Here is what it looks like so far...several rub on's (my fav!!), chip board Hero book, stickers, tags, templates, alphabet set,  monograms, stamps (including a frog set that I loved!! you can see him in the photo), and a selection of embellishments, small scrapbook kit and a mat pad. I also raided my stash and included a few items from that also - blank tags, few vellum envelopes, pop-ups, journal tags...Depending on how much fits..I might find a few more things..never know!!!  Well I got a large bubble envelope and have filled it up - was only able to add a few items it was so packed.

I have realized I have no way of contacting some of you...so please leave a comment with an email if you don't have a blog or something..Thanks!

A Touch of Grace

There are a  few reasons that I love blog hops...forget the chance to win something - discovering new blogs is my favorite part!! Jerri with A Touch of Grace happens to be one of them. She amazing and her site is packed with tutorials, ideas, techniques..basically, everything you could hope for!

If you have been following me or even have just gone through my blog you have discovered I love making my own flowers!! Jerri has put together a GREAT tutorial series on making flowers that you must see!!
I strongly suggest visiting her, here is the link for the flower and embossing tutorials.  Trust me when I say you are going to want to spend some time over there and be sure to sign up for her mailing so you don't miss anything! One other tutorial she has is a very unique idea for adding texture to leaves - I loved it and will definitely be trying it!!
I could sit here and keep adding links for a very long time..but I will let you head over and look around. Jerri is also Copic Certified, an alumni for Split Coast Stampers, design team for Spellbinders, and she even has her own boutique! Needless to say she is very busy with an abundance of creativity! I had contacted her with a few questions and she was more than happy to answer them ( I am having embossing issues!! )

To find her boutique

Stamps - where to find your favorites

I am having a hard time getting links to work..if one is broken please let me know!
Since the discovery of Copics I have been looking at more stamps (that I can color in!!) and digi stamps came up. So off to the world of digi stamps! I have found, and others share their favorite digi stamp sites. Since I will guess this is going to get lengthy I decided to just do a posting on them and add them in as I find them. Am I missing your favorite place....let me know so I can add it. Please share your experiences with digi's and sites that offer them!
