December Prizes!

I'm here today to share with you the prizes you're playing for this month... though the real prize is completing Christmas projects, right? So many ideas, so little time- we're so grateful for each one of you who plays along with us in our Seriously Creative Challenges!

Each month, we use to select a prize winner and this month our prize is growing according to the number of entrants we get in the challenge!  Your prize starts with a fun 6x6 pad from s.e.i. This pad was designed to coordinate with one of their Christmas lines this year, but it's a totally versatile pad with bold colours and simple patterns- you'll be amazed what it coordinates with!  We'll be adding in 3 yards of coordinating ribbon, as well as some fabulous bling... who knows, there may be more added to the bundle if the entries keep coming in :)

PLUS since we've already got more than 10 entries, (thanks for joining us!) members of our design team will select one entrant to win another prize- a 2012 Sketch Calendar from Scrapbook & Cards Today and PageMaps!  We've loved the sketches and inspiration in the 2011 Calendar and are thrilled to have another year of inspiration ahead of us.  We'll also be including with this second prize a surprise element- an unmounted stamp of our choosing!
Also up for grabs this month is our Top 3 badge- it may not be until after Christmas, but we look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you've created for the challenge... then selecting our favourites!   This badge is only offered when we have 12+ entries.

Thanks for sharing your creations with us!  There is still time to join the challenge if you haven't yet- we're keeping it open until January 5, so you can share your projects after the holidays when you've got more time :) Watch the sidelines of the blog to see if our DT members have new ideas to share with ya over the next few days- they'd love to have you stop by!

You probably won't hear from us again (on this blog) before Christmas, so MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!  We hope you have an amazing holiday with family and friends!

Saturday, December 3, 2011's beginning to look a lot like Xmas ...

For some the music is playing, the decorations are being put up.  The kids are playing outside, even building snowmen. The goodies are being baked and my personally favorite...the rush to get all that shopping done!  You really don't want to know the sound effects there!  LOL
So before I continue with with our New challenge, I would like to annouce our winner from November:

...Congrats to Number 7
Please send us an email (creative accents at with your address so we can send you your prize! ( no spaces, at=@ )

A little note from Tara( CA owner)...
Normally on the challenge blog we award a prize to a random winner... and we're doing that this month as well, but IF we get more than 10 entries, we'll also award another prize to one participant selected by members of our Design Team! Our random prize will 'grow' dependingon the number of entries... starting with a 6x6 pad from one of our fave paper companies.Watch for more specifics on the prize next week, but for now... get out there and create something for Christmas!

So you may have guessed our theme this month....SO SUPER EASY ! !

Our DT has been having fun with this challenge..check out their samples...




More inspiration to come, hope this gets you started.  Tell one, tell all and come join in the fun!
Don't forget to add your link to your post not to blog.  Then we can find your entry!  Thanks
