Here yee, here yee! I have a fun announcement to make :)

I'm one of the new Divas over at Ch{all}enge Masters!!!

The Hybrid Diva to be exact. It's going to be fun, but challenging. For sure! So check back Sunday for my first challenge!

In the meantime, I'd love to share some of the DT work, and the Week 1 Challenges. There's some truly awesome challenges going on. Check 'em out below.

Altered Art Challenge by KineticKatie
Storage is the challenge this month. Have you ever thought about using a paint can to store things? They're not the prettiest things in the world, pretty plain. Even the acrylic ones are boring. But we are scrappers! This month your challenge is to alter a paint can, any size. Michael's sells clear ones for around $6, and Hobby Lobby sells a set of 3 progressively smaller ones for $13.99. You can also alter a regular metal paint can from the paint store, any can works!
For this month the topic is - MY FAVOURITE THINGS. I want you to do a project - layout, mini album anything you'd like, that shows you're favourite things. These need to be your favourite things TODAY! What do you like today, not what you liked in the past. These can be anything at all.
Welcome to my Super Easy Challenge. Every month I will have a list of 6 Manufacturer's and you only need to use at least 4 of them on your project! See, isn't that easy!!

This month the list is:
Pink Paisley
Basic Grey
My Mind's Eye
Bazzill Basics
May Arts (the ribbon people!)

The word is PARTY!!
Who doesn't love a party?
Life is a party! Life is an occasion, rise to it!
Live it up!

Nothing speaks to me more about summer and the 4th of July than pinwheels so that's what this technique is all about. Patriotic Pinwheels!!! Or for those of you not in the Northern Hemisphere, just a good ol' pinwheel for your unscrapped summer layouts.

We all have busy and crazy days but sometimes ya just gotta STOP and look around.....
And this led me to the challenge this month.....I want you to STOP and look around.....take a photo of something. It can be anything from a bug to a sunset or your wash hanging out to dry or your crazy dogs playing in the yard...Just STOP and look around....take a break from your Daily Grind.....

If you join in my challenge Not too many things ya have to follow just scrap a photo of something you see/saw durning your Daily Grind. have fun...enjoy life and the time we have to scrap it....

For my very first Scrap That Tune challenge, I'm using a Reba McEntire song titled "I Keep On Lovin' You"

Here are [some of] the lyrics:
I Keep On Lovin' You lyrics

Love takes the patience of "Job",
that's what my mama always said
Faith is the belief in somethin'
more than what you know,
That's what the 'good book' says

The rules for all of the Ch{all}enge Master challenges are as follows:
  • Each submission must be a newly created project specifically for the challenge.
  • Only one entry per category.
  • Challenges may be combined, but each submission is one entry no matter how many challenges are entered.
  • Each submission must be uploaded to the proper folder in our gallery no later than 11:59PM ET on July 31, 2010 to be eligible for the random draw.
  • Each submission must follow ALL requirements of the challenge to be eligible for the random draw. For example, if the challenge states blue must be used, then there must be some blue in the project in order to qualify.
So there you have July's Week 1 Challenges! Click on each challenge title to get ALL the details, as I simplified for the post a bit. Be sure to stop by and take a gander at all that's going on with the Divas! And perhaps participate in a challenge or two :) Happy Scrapping!
