It's Challenge Time!! Let's Scrap It!! :)

Yippee-ki-yay!!  It's a FANTASTIC Friday!!  The weekend is here, and it's TIME for a CHALLENGE!!   don't know about you, but I was SUPER excited to see all the AMAZING challenge entries last time!!  Y'all really, really, REALLY love your FALL colors and creations!! :)  Thanks so much to ALL who joined!!

Before we get to this week's challenge details, I need to announce TWO winners!!  The winner of the "Happy Fall Y'all -- Use your Fall Colors" Challenge is:  Kelly!! WINNER has a blog called "Kelly's Crafty Life" --  I'd love for you to pop over and visit her...  Here is her card!!
Isn't that adorable???  Kelly, please email me (scrapbookingwithamy at gmail dot com) with your address so I can send your little goodie out!! :)

I also promised to send a little something to one person who popped over to my Guest Designers' blogs to comment on their projects...  That winner is:  Christine!!  She has a blog called "Scrappin' with Chriss and Lou"...  Please hop on over there to congratulate her!!  And thank you, Christine, for helping everyone feel welcome (please be sure to email me at the above address!)!! :)

Okie-dokie -- This time around, I'm challenging you to USE YOUR SCRAPS and create whatever your heart desires!!  You can make a card, layout, or 3D project *as long as* you use MOSTLY scraps to complete your creation!!

You can use ANY tools (your Cricut or other die cutting machine), you can stamp, use punches, or just use your trimmer!!  Your project can have any color scheme or theme!!  Feel free to make a card, layout, or other art project!!  This week, I have THREE talented friends to provide some inspiration for the challenge!!  Remember to pop on over to their blogs for more details on their projects -- Be sure to mention that you're stopping over from Love To Crop! so that I can pick another lucky winner for a little something-something!! :)

Onto the inspiration...

CallyAnn had a LOT of fun using some of her scraps (and this is just ONE picture of what she made, wait til you see the rest!!)...  Her blog is: CallyAnn's Crafty Creations!! For more details on her project, please CLICK HERE!!

Laura created this adorable card (and wait til you see all of her organization tips for her scraps!!)...  Her blog is:  Laura's Crafts and More!! For more details on her project, please CLICK HERE!!

Brenda created a WHOLE BUNCH of goodies (she even showed you her original project!!)...  Her blog is:  Creativity in only a State of Mind!!  For more details on her project, please CLICK HERE!!
All of the cards came from her leftover scraps from her beautiful layout....

WOW!!  Didn't they all do a FABULOUS job???  I just LOVE the variety!!  What a creative BUNCH!! :)
 To finish off the "inspiration," I also created a little something...
{{{Well....  I will have to add the photo later since my camera battery just died!!  In the meantime, I hope you'll be inspired to create something too!!}}}

Okay!!  It's YOUR turn!!  Show us your take on the challenge and create a card, layout, or 3D project using YOUR SCRAPS!!  The challenge is open until Thursday, October 6th at 11:59pm EST.  You are welcome to link up as many NEW creations as you like as long as you follow the theme AND include a link to www.lovetocrop.com so that others may play along...  I also respectfully request that you do not "backlink" when entering the challenge (linking a project that was posted previous to the challenge date).  Thank you!!  You will need to enter your actual post link (not a link to your entire blog).  To do this, after clicking "Publish" on your post, click on "View Post" and copy and paste the address from your browser address bar into the Linky tool.  If you have questions on how to do this, please feel free to leave a comment with your email address, and I'll be happy to help.

Now be sure to pop on over and visit my WONDERFUL Guest Designers for a chance at a little goodie from me!!  One random comment will be chosen (so be sure YOURS says, "I'm visiting from Love To Crop!")...  Clicking on each name will take you to their projects!! :)

What does backlink mean. I don't understand? I am trying to post my card as I do with othr blogs but it is not working. I am not that experienced with blogs and posts.

Hi, I received an email from you for my troubled posting. The card title is Scary & Sweet(Skull and Black Rose). Thanks for you help. Please explain what back link means. What is different.

Wonderful Projects DT! Love the Snow white box. Congrats to the winners.

In case someone has not answered about what backlinking is here goes: when a challenge indicates no backlinking that means you cannot enter something that was posted PRIOR to the date of the challenge being posted so if you had a creation from day before, days before, wk before, wks before or any time before the date of the challenge being posted then it is not allowed.
