THE ART OF GIVING: Thanks for stopping by and getting involved in this great opportunity. In starting off the new year, Christine and I decided to put together a challenge blog that would not only provide you with inspiration and free goodies, but to also let you know about the many ways we can "PAY IT FORWARD" to others in our simple and GIGANTIC ways. We hope that in combining both inspiration and giving to others, we can all make this world a better place, one layout, card, and gesture at a time. Thank you for taking this journey with us.

Spring has sprung!

We are so excited to introduce to you our new challenge sponsored by two fabulous organizations! Cosmo Cricket provided us with kits for a giveaway and for our DT to work with, and Jill at Memorable Seasons is providing one lucky winner with a Generous $20 Gift certificate to her online store/message board.

Here is what you could win!
OR a $20 gift certificate to Memorable Seasons, a great Scrapbooking online community and a fantastic place to shop!
This challenge is called Spring has Sprung! We will be supporting the organization called Boys Hope Girls Hope. This organization helps youth who are at risk and provides them with positive learning/growth opportunities who otherwise may not have the chance to do so. Here is a bit from their website. Please follow the link above to learn more.

By providing children with arms-around care, safe homes and environments, a
first-class education, opportunities to learn more about themselves and the world,
and academic, financial, and spiritual support through college, Boys Hope Girls
Hope empowers children to realize the potential that is within them.

Our challenge is simple. You may do one or both challenges. We hope that you partake in both. If so, you will even make your chances of winning greater!

Challenge #1 Make a spring themed layout for an entry into our drawing and link it back to us! Use Cosmo Cricket paper and get an extra entry!

Challenge #2...Send us packets of seeds like these :) Flowers, fruits and vegetable will bulbs please. They cost next to nothing and are inexpensive to mail...but will do a world of good for those kids at Boys Hope Girls Hope. Let them plant some goodness and watch spring blossom right in front of them! You may email us for our mailing addy.

We are so excited to get this challenge up and running so share with us your layouts, well wishes and send us those seeds.
