A New Challenge Blog

>> Friday, September 17, 2010

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!)

Echo Park patterned paper, stickers, journaling card
Recollections cardstock
Making Memories ribbon
American Crafts thickers
Sandylion dimensional butterflies

I love your LO. I was just used those stickers as well so they really caught my eye. I love them. They make the LO so playful don´t they?.
Now I will have a look to see what else you done.
