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:)

As Promised a GREAT Surprise Challenge:)

Ok, fellow crafters in Sunny Southern CA...I am so happy to be hosting a monthly challenge at my local scrapbooking store, Ever After Scrapbooks.  This challenge is based on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013 and this is how it works:
 
Go to Tim's blog and check out his monthly tag challenge.  After reading about the current month's challenge, head on over to  Ever After Scrapbooks Blog/12 Tags of 2013 Challenge to get the details on how Tim's challenge will be incorporated into an in-store challenge at Ever After.
 
Remember, some of the coolest things about Ever After's challenge is:
  1. You get to see the other entries in person.  You can touch them, and see all of the creative texture, techniques in real life
  2. EVERY participant receives a benefit JUST FOR PARTICIPATING:)  You will receive a coupon for 15% Tim's products for the following month (a great way to stock up on those items needed for the next challenge that you don't already have in your stash).
  3. EVERY participant that completes the challenge using at least 80% Tim's products will be eligible for the random draw...of a prize consisting of Tim's products...at least a $10 retail value.
  4. You can get together with your friends and family at one of EA's crops and make your tag, all the while using not only Tim's on-line inspiration, but also that of the tags at Ever After.
  5. Your friendly employees at Ever After can answer questions on how to use Tim's products you want to try on your tag.
In order for you all to have time to get all of your supplies together for the tag, Ever After will run the challenge slightly behind Tim's challenge.  At Ever After, the challenge will start on the 13th of each month...i.e. Tim's January challenge will run at Ever After from January 13th to February 12th, and will continue each month in the same fashion.
 
Here is my take on January's Tag:
 
 
 
Now, don't forget to also enter Tim's challenge, but remember for his, you need to upload your entry in the month the challenge is given.  At Ever After, you have until the 12th of the following month to get your entry into the store and be eligible for the random draw (just make sure you used at least 80% Tim's products on your tag).
 
Happy Creating!
