Endings & Beginnings

You may have noticed things are a bit quiet here on our Seriously Creative Challenge Blog lately.  I'm sad to announce that things here are coming to an end, as we continue on with plans to close our store, Creative Accents, at the end of this month. 

As you can see from the layout above, I (Tara), recently got engaged and am getting married this August!  While it's sad to say goodbye to the store, design team and challenge blog, I'm anticipating a new beginning in my new home with my man :)  I'm excited to see what new creative opportunities await me... keep an eye on the other/store blog, as I'll be redesigning it in the fall and will continue to share my creative projects there!

We have enjoyed sharing challenges and inspiration with you and as store owners and members of the Seriously Creative Design Team, we hope we'll bump into you again somewhere in the blogosphere soon :)  Thanks for your participation on our little Challenge Blog! 

Farewell my friends, keep the creative juices flowing!

More Winter Wonders!

I meant to be back much earlier to share these with you... who knew January would be this crazy? We've got some more fabulous Winter Wonders projects to share though:

Leslea made this great layout- I love the punch of red!  
Roxy's layout is all in blues... with some fabulous inky goodness :)
I hope you'll join us, and that your January isn't quite as crazy busy as mine has been!  We'd love to see any projects that celebrate Winter Wonders

Januar 2013 {Winter Wonders}

We're a bit slow getting things kicked off here, but I'm happy to be finally introducing you to our January Challenge- Winter Wonders!

Create any paper crafting project that celebrates the wonders of winter... because if you live anywhere even slightly similar to us in Williams Lake, BC, you'll be dealing with winter for a while, so we may as well find the beauty in it :)

Here's some pretty projects from our Seriously Creative Design Team members:

Janet made this adorable card- how cute would this be for a January anniversary?  
She made more wintery cards as well, visit her blog to see them!
 Sarai used some old photos of her adorable daughter and put together this soft, beautiful layout!
 I (Tara) made this card with our January SOTM (Stamp Of The Month)!
I'll be back with more projects to share soon!  You've got until the end of the month to play along with us...

We can't wait to see what you'll create!
