Our very first challenge for 2012 is here! Please see the OUAS blog post for the entire rules and awe-inspiring design team interpretations.
Regretably due to travel and general down time lately, I was not able to complete this challenge along with my team, but I urge you to take part in the fun and play along with us at OUAS! You must scroll down and see the amazing prizes up for grabs!
January 1st Challenge
Journalling Criteria/theme: New Years Eve!
Our theme this time is New year's Eve. We would like you to journal about your feelings around this time of year, or tell us about your most memorable New Year's Eve. Where were you? Who were you with? What did you do? Why is this one memorable? Note: the photo that you use for this challenge does not have to necessarily be from New Years Eve. For example, if you spent New Years Eve with your family you can have a photo of your family taken ANY time of the year.
Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.
You must combine our journalling criteria/theme with this sketch.
How would you like to be our Guest Designer for February? This is the challenge where you have the chance to win a spot on our design team for the whole upcoming month simply by winning this challenge. As well as being our Guest Designer, as chosen by our Design team, you will also receive.....
An in-stock stamp set from The Crafts Meow of the winners choice..
