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.

It's Clearly Simple  

Monday, July 20, 2009

Well HELLO there friends and fellow scrappy followers. We had to take a quick little hiatus due to vacations and some minor life's challenges demanding attention....but WE ARE BACK!

We have a new challenge coming to you! It is called...It's Clearly Simple. We have some fun prizes that are clearly divine. If you get your challenges in by Thurday, August'll be in the clear.

Okay so...did you all get my silly attempt at giving you a clue? Well if not, here it goes. Your challenge this time around is to create a project (layout, altered item, card, whatever you can think of) with clear materials. This could be acetate sheets, clear buttons, glossy acccents, a clear clipboard,clear alphas (lke Maya Road or Heidi Swaap) a clear paint can or whatever else that you can surprise us with. Please link us to your project in your post! Did I make that clear? Sorry I just couldn't resist. :0)

The second part of our challenge is the human aspect of it all. Often we have so many people in our lives that we care for and maybe it is clear to us how we feel about them, or how we are very grateful for what they do....but have you made that clear to your special person in mind? This could be a friend, a teacher, a family member, a neighbor, a postal carrier, your pastor... I don't tell us..who is this person and why? Next, make it clear to them how very grateful you are to them, how you appreciate something that they do etc. Then share your story about it in your post, along with a link to the project that you made. Simple words and gestures can make a world of difference and this is an easy thing to have at it!

Now... what you have been waiting for....the prizes. Right? We didn't forget!
Two lucky winners will receive a pack of 4 6x6 sheets of Grafix Clear Craft Plastic and a clear stamp.

These sheets are very versatile and fun! You can stamp on them, emboss, paint, apply glitter, ribbon, tape,punch holes and add brads or eyelets in them and much more. Here are a few ideas from Illyse and Myself :0)

So we will be waiting to hear from you and see what crafty goodness that you will be coming up with! We just can't wait.

And on another note..It is time for me to make something very CLEAR to two special people in my life. Illyse and Jenn who are part of this wonderful team. I love you both for being such good friends to me, for being there in my time of need, for making me laugh at everything, for making this blog a reality, for sharing my excitement for all things, for listening, for laughing,for friendship. both seriously ROCK!...and I don't use that term loosely ;0)
