Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday season, and 2015 has gotten off to a great start for you! I am stopping in to share the the first theme for our third year of blogger challenges! It's hard to believe--year three! We're not slowing down yet, as we have new and exciting themes in store! You ready? Well, let's get started! The first challenge is:
That's right! Our first challenge is all about the LOVE! January is almost over, so Valentine's Day will be here before we know it! So pull out those craft supplies to create those heart-themed scrapbook pages, cards, and mixed media/altered art projects! But instead of one week to complete this challenge, now you'll have two weeks! That's right! This year we will be posting a new theme every other week, so you'll have even more time to create! But posting your project in the challenge is the same--After you create and post your creation on your blog, simply come back and share a direct link to your blog post in the comment section below, the Blogger's Challenge forum over on Scraps of Color, or here in our blog gallery!
Now even though this is the first blogger challenge here on the SOC blog, the ladies got a bit of a "warm-up" with an "Anything Goes" challenge over in the challenge forum! Here's a peek at a few of those creations, starting with a couple of layouts:
Debbie shared this fabulous page! Love the colors and mix of patterns!
Next, Gemiel made this great layout! Be sure to stop by her blog, Gemiel's Gems, to
read more on the wonderful story behind this page.
Here's a mixed media creation by Queen Pam. I won't give it away, but you have to check out
her complete post to see how she transforms this project!
Michele shared this adorable tag over in the challenge forum! In her blog post, she shares
her inspiration for this project.
Finally, Jean got a head start on her Valentine's Day cards with this beauty! Just lovely!
Thanks ladies for participating and starting the bloggers challenges off with a bang! To all of you bloggers out there, would you like to participate in the challenges this year? How about the chance to have your creation featured in a future blog post or on SOC's Facebook and Twitter pages? As the ladies above have done, its EASY! Make the goal to join us this year! We'd love to have ya! I'll be back in a couple of weeks to share projects from this challenge and post a new theme! Until then, take care and Happy Crafting!
