Cropstop Fall Frolic - My Butterfly Challenge

As you know, the Fall Frolic crop is going on over at the Cropstop! There are challenges, fun, & games everyday until September 22nd, & then you have until the 30th to to post your challenges to be eligible for the grand prize draw. Here is the challenge that I posted today:

I love butterflies. My girls love butterflies. And to me, after sending off my baby girl to Kindergarten, they kind of have a new meaning to me. That people, insects, & life in general go through changes. What better way to reflect change than butterflies.

My challenge to you, is to use 2 or more butterflies, from any kind of die cut system, on a project. It can be a card, layout, ATC, altered item, or whatever your lil heart desires. It just has to have a minimum of 2 die cut butterflies on it.

Here are 2 examples that I found in the gallery:



Complete and upload your project with "Butterfly Challenge" as the title into the "FALL FROLIC" album in the Cropstop gallery, by the September 30th deadline to be eligible for the grand prize draw!

Also, please post your completed project in this thread so we can ooohh & aaahhh over it some more!

Thanks for playing!

Since it was Labor day, & I am still trying to get into a routine with watching Max & Jack full time, I didn't have a chance to post last weeks layout. So, this week, I am posting both last weeks & this weeks. As it turns out, they are both Christmassy & from 2005!

From Here 2 Scrapternity September Back to School Crop!

This weekend is the From Here 2 Scrapternity Back to School Crop. Being on the DT I had to come up with 3 challenges this month. Here are my challenges & my examples for the challenges:

When you think of school, you think of wisdom, & what is the simple of wisdom? An owl. So I provided a sketch & the challenge was to use the sketch & include an owl somewhere on the layout, card or project. Here is my example:

My next challenge was to use all primary colors on the project. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple. Black & white can be used as well. Here is my example:

& my last challenge was, of course, to use an apple, 1 or more, on any project. I did 2 examples for this one, a card & a layout:

So, hurry on over to FH2S & join on in on the fun!

Cropstop Fall Frolic Chalk Color Challenge

As you know, Cropstop is having it's Fall Frolic Crop right now! It is so much fun. Today is day 8 of the festivities & I posted this challenge:

For this challenge, I would like you to use chalk. Be it a pallet of chalk with a brush, chalk ink, chalk pencils, I certainly don't mind what form of chalk you use, just as long as you color your image with a form of chalk.

The twist to this challenge, is that I would like it to have a fall theme. It can be Halloween, pumpkins (as shown in the example below), apples, or anything that reminds you of fall. You can put your colored image on anything of your choice. Layout, card, ATC, tag, etc.

I found this, created by Vicki, in the gallery:

Complete and upload your project with "Color Challenge" as the title into the "FALL FROLIC" album in the Cropstop gallery, by the September 30th deadline to be eligible for the grand prize draw! Also, please post in this thread for more ooohhhs & aaahhs!
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over & join in on the fun!
See you there!
