It's not a Card Challenge Paper Blooms Challenge

Hi Everyone! The time has come again for another great and fun challenge over at the PaperBlooms challenge blog! These last two weeks went by so fast! Where did the time go? I am excited to tell you about the challenge for the next two weeks. But before we get to this week's challenge, I would like to say Thank You to everyone who participated in our "Peek-a-Boo" challenge. I am personally inspired by how many different takes there can be for one inspiration!

And dont forget to stop by the PaperBlooms Challenge Blog to check out the Featured Artist for the peek-a-boo challenge! Maybe it is YOU! If its not you this time, dont be discouraged, try again and it could be YOU next time ;)

Ok, on to today's business .... the challenge is to Not Make A Card. That is right! Do not make a card. This time, we challenge you to Make a home decor piece, whatever you'd like. Sounds like fun, right? I always love thinking outside the (card) box and do more with my supplies. This challenge was just that, a challenge because when I have made things like this in the past, I am making them with a certian person in mind or for an occasion gift. So today I had to find inspiration elsewhere. I had a totally different idea going into this project, when I say totally different, I mean totally different, as in I had some chain, decorative paper clips and square and circle metal tags out. Yeah. Sometimes I just dont get what I am thinking! LOL
And remember, you do not have to use Leah's paperblooms on your project to play along! If you would like to find out more about these amazing hand made embellishments, check out Leah's Esty Shop! She takes custom orders AND offers free shipping! What more can you ask for? ;)
