LOTS happening this week!!!

I can't believe it is the last day of March!  It doesn't even feel like spring yet!!  But I am SO excited about April because that means its time for our annual SKETCHATHON!!

Every day for the entire month of April, we will reveal a new sketch challenge on the forum.  These sketches are unique and exclusively made by the My Scraps & More Design Team just for this event!  I have seen the sketches, and let me tell you, they are AWESOME!!

All challenge entries will be due by May 3rd.

Come by the forum and check out all the awesomeness going on!

********************* Product Inspiration *******************

Whenever we get new products in the store, I feel like I have to create something with them right away!!  So I am sharing a page with the new Bella Blvd Color Chaos collection.  This was for the gold, green, and lucky Tuesday trigger this past week and the challenge was to use a photo with green, green paper, and an embellishment that is green.

On this page I used one of the "invisibles" (the black stripe) and I cut some holes out of it with my exacto knife.  I layered it over a 4x6 card cut out from paper, and some other strips of green paper.

On the background, I experimented a bit with a dry brush and some black paint, and I love how it turned out!

****************** Store News**************

FINALLY some new Crate Paper and other American Crafts goodies have arrived in the store!!

****please note that I have only received the embellishments and specialty papers from this collection.  The papers are still on their way and should be here by next week. All specialty gold foil papers and burlap sheets are in stock, however.*****
