The other day, someone Regan left me the following comment on one of my posts:
This is an adorable layout! I love how everything comes together. Love those little gears! With your talent you really should consider entering the challenges over at Papercraft Star http://www.papercraftstar.blogspot.com they are offering a lot of prizes right now too! Oh and they post all of their challenges weeks in advance to give crafters a head start!
I will admit that my first thought was "Yeah, thanks for the compliment but you're obviously just trying to promote your own blog." which arguably wasn't very gracious; but I'm like that sometimes.
Anyway, after a couple of days my curiosity got the best of me and I went over to PapercraftStar to see what was going on, and what I found was a cool challenge blog. Every week it is something different - sometimes it's a photo inspiration, sometimes a sketch, sometimes a layout recipes. And, the best part is that they post the challenges in advance so if you are having a particularly crafty day you could potentially complete a month's worth of challenges all at once. Oh yeah, and they have lots of prizes - who doesn't like prizes?!?!
So, thanks to Regan for stopping by my blog and letting me know about Papercraft Star.
Oh, and here is my first submission for a PCS challenge - #13 which is a sketch challenge (my favorite kind, yay!)
