Catch Up Sunday

I can't believe April is almost over, which means Scrap Our Stash will have completed its 5th month. Time sure does fly.

This week Monica and Roxanne submitted their After pictures for Spring Cleaning Challenge. Also, Kimmarie generously donated a Stamp N' Up set and paper for the Spring Cleaning prize. The contest will end on April 30th. Then we will post all of the contestants who posted both their before and after pictures - and let you our readers pick a winner. So, if you haven't gotten your pictures in yet - it's still not too late.

So far the April Challenge has been almost exclusively lifts. This weeks contributors were Wendy, Rachel and Kimmarie. It has been interesting to see how one person's layout can inspire us to do something "all our own". The challenge continues through the 30th also. Jump on board - you could win a spot on the Guest Design Team.

Our Frugal Friday this week was a quick tutorial by Rachel on how to change the color of your bling to match your layout. This is a great way to use up your stash!

Exciting news. Starting May 15th we will be having a Sketch Challenge in addition to our regular monthly challenge. Design Team Member Robin will be creating a sketch exclusively for Scrap Our Stash each month. We will post Design Team members examples of how they used the sketch - and then will challenge our readers to complete a layout using the sketch. Each month winners will be chosen and given the opportunity to serve on our Guest Design Team. I'm really looking forward to this. I love using sketches for inspiration.

Have a great week - be sure to get your submissions in before the April 30th deadline. Looking forward to seeing your projects.
