March Challenge

Blocks by Mardi

April Guest Design Team Member Mardi completed these blocks for the March Old / New Challenge. Here is her description:

This was such a fun challenge! I used the following supplies:
The new
Graphic 45 On the boardwalk pp collection
The Old
QuicKutz alpha
Colorbox chalk
Prima flowers
misc. brads
I wanted to alter some baby blocks, but unfortunately I do not have any, so I decided to create a template to make my own out of heavy cardstock. Please feel free to use the template. I created five different square boxes and wanted to make sure I could spell a few different words from them for inspiration in my scrap room and as an added bonus, one of the words I could spell with the letters I placed on the blocks was my name.

Now it's your turn. Submit your March Old / New Challenge project soon. You could be a future Guest Design Team Member. See all the details below in March Challenge. Also, don't miss the Spring Cleaning Challenge detailed below.
