Handmade Flowers- take 3!

I think the hardest part about our current challenge is narrowing down which sort of flowers you want to make... at least that was the hardest part for me :) Here's a couple more flowery projects to hopefully inspire you to create some flowers (when you're not outside gardening and admiring the real flowers out there this May long weekend!)

April Challenge Winners!

It was so much fun seeing the diverse styles of projects that were submitted to our April Challenge to use Sprays & Stains- I loved visiting each of your blogs and seeing what you've been creating!

I (Tara) am totally, full on in INKY mode- last weekend I had the thrill of attending Ranger University in New Jersey, getting immersed in all things inky spending 3 FULL days with Tim Holtz, Claudine Hellmuth & Dyan Reavely.  It was so much fun and so inspiring, and even though I was already very familiar with Ranger products, I learned a lot from the masters :)

I don't have a new challenge to present to you today... but I'll be back on Monday with the details and some inspiration from our Seriously Creative Design Team!  Things are a bit busy right now since today is National Scrapbooking Day and we are in the middle of our fabulous Scrapbook & Cards FIESTA weekend!

I brought back some Dylusions sprays (so fun!) and Mom & I had to open them up and create some inky goody bags for the weekend:

Aren't they fun and colorful?  We pulled out some random chipboard letters and put them on brown paper bags for a quick mask, then got wild with Dylusions sprays!  Here's hoping the inky-ness will never end :)

Before I announce the winners, here's a quick look at my 'graduating class' of Certified Ranger Educators:

And now... we've used to select the winners of our April challenge... Yes TWO winners, as we had 10 entries! Each of these ladies will get a code for $10 to spend in our online store, which is opening later this month!  As our store isn't open yet, I'll also include an inky goodie from Ranger in your package when we ship it off to you!

And the winners are...
Please send us an email and we'll send the coupon code to you when the store opens up!

Thanks for playing along!   Check back on Monday to see what we have for you in May!
