Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Frugal Scrapper Challenge

Ok fellow paper crafters...every so often I see something that catches my eye...it just "screams" to me...use me as inspiration for your next crafting project...now being a frugal scrapper and all, I just love it when my inspiration comes from my "junk mail", lol...

I found this fragrance ad inside my Ulta sale flyer and fell in love with it...not the fragrance, but the ad itself...

With that in mind, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share this inspirational piece with all of you and to issue it as a "Frugal Scrappin' Challenge"...

Now, I know there are some AMAZING challenge blogs out there, many with some awesome prizes to lucky random winners...and yes, I definitely do participate in my share of challenges:)

Now, here is the part where I let you know that this challenge is just a challenge...and your prize you might ask???? The amazing project you create using this ad as inspiration...and of course the wonderful comments you will receive from me and others who see your amazing works of art:)

Now for the "rules":
  • Of course, first and foremost...use the ad as inspiration for your project
  • You can alter it any way you want...you can use just the color scheme, just the layout of the ad, or you can use it all
  • Add a comment on this post with a link to your project by 9/30/09

That's it...easy, peasy...I want to use this as a little "project" to see how many comments I can get...I think my maximum comments to a post thus far is around 12...I'd LOVE to surpass that, so feel free to forward this challenge to all your scrappin' buddies!

Whoo hoo, let's get that mojo pumpin'! I will create a special album with all entries that are commented on this post. I will then release the album for you all to see on 10/1/09. I can't wait to see what you all come up with:) In fact, I can't wait to see what I come up with, too!

Thanks for visiting...:)

This is my take on the challenge. I decided that the colors could be incorporated into a Halloween layout:)

Enjoy!
