We moved out of our house but have been staying with my parents until we can move into the new house which will be today 9/10.
I hope to be back to normal-is that possible??? :) the beginning of next week and will have a sneak peek up for October.
I just finished responding to all emails and all international kits are going out today 9/10. Thanks everyone for your patience.

It's challenge time again!!! YAY!!!
And let me tell you, this is going to be a FUN one. I think you'll really really really like it. But first, let's just have a little refresher about the challenges (consider this a small commercial):
1. Everyone who participates in the challenge (according to the rules/parameters) will be included in a random drawing at the end of the month for a yummy RAK from the designer (that'd be me). FYI: RAK's are Random Acts of Kindness... in this case that means LOTS OF SCRAPBOOKING GOODIES.
2. Anyone can participate with any scrapbooking product but if you want to be in the drawing for the RAK you must use supplies from your MP kits. Try to use at least 70% MP stuff.
Ok, now that we have that all cleared up let's move on to the fun stuff.
***This month's challenge is to scraplift a Design Team layout from this month's September gallery!***
I had a blast picking one of these awesome layouts to lift. They were ALL so rich with ideas and cool techniques. The one I chose was Amy's "relections" page. I loved how she used the petals from the big flowers to make foliage on the branches from the owl paper.
Here is Amy's layout:
And here is my lift:
I loved everything about her page, so I kept much of it the same. You can be more flexible with your lift, though. And please lift any page that "speaks" to you in our Sept. Gallery! Can't wait to see what you create.
Here is a link to the Design Team Gallery: SEPTEMBER GALLERY. Pick one out and start scrapping! You can link to your completed layout here in the comments (or in our challenges thread: HERE) or upload it to our member's gallery. P.S. In a few days I'll give you all a glimpse of your incentive in the challenges forum on the message board, so keep your eyes peeled. ;)

Hi Mosh-Posh'ers...Amy, here, and it's my turn to get you excited about this month's rockin' kit!!
Kristen also included two sheets of the Cosmo Cricket Fleruiste blackboard - so many different shapes and flourishes it was hard to choose!! I ended up using a few swooshes on the bottom right corner of the photo. Then I took one of the Bazzill flowers and grabbed it in the middle to gather it all up. I stapled the center then placed it, flat, on the cardstock (the flower looks completely flat in the pic above b/c I scanned that image. IRL, the flower is nice and poofy!!). Finally, a Chatterbox artsy-licious Splendid Treasure finishes off the accent:
To tie it all together, I added another Bazzill flower in the upper left corner with a piece of the blackboard and a Chatterbox epoxy button on top with a piece of hemp string to add some interest:And there you have it - one of my favorite LO's in a long time. It was quick and easy and turned out fabulous thanks to this great kit!!! Remember to upload your creations to the Member Gallery. Can't wait to see what you create!!
