January This Or That Challenge & Scrappy Friends Bonus Challenge

Hello Scrappers and Happy New Year!!!! 

Are you ready for new challenges this year? :) 
 I will be hosting THIS OR THAT challenges on my blog along with my Scrappy Friends to inspire and motivate you to get your memories documented creatively by using your stash and with chances to  win scrapbook goodies!! 

This could not be successful without my Scrappy Friends ~ Brenda Ragsdale a.ka. GrandDiva's Creative Corner and Kelly Hollifield a.k.a. Creativing with Paper & More.  Thank you ladies for this wonderful team we have!

Onto the challenge!

Here's January This Or That challenge:
My challenge for you is for you to create a new layout and use EITHER TWINE OR RIBBON.  Either one, but not BOTH.  Please mention on your blog post which item you used. 

And as aways, you are encouraged to combine this challenge with the other 2 Scrappy Friends challenges (see below) for a total of 4 chances to win with just 1 layout!  Woohoo!

Here's my layout:
I used twine for my challenge, the left page sketch of Brenda's challenge and I was inspired by the snow in the Kelly's Inspiration photo challenge (see below). 

And here is the prize I will be giving away:
Teresa Collins Nine & Co. 12x12 Collection pack

RULES (to be entered into drawing):
• Create a new layout (one entry only) following the criteria above
• You must be a FOLLOWER of my blog

  1. Wow I really love your challenges. I hope to be able to participate this month.

  2. Woo Hoo!! Just sent you my info. Thanks! I look forward to playing again!

  3. Love your layout! I have family in Aurora but have never been there when it's snowing, so it's fun seeing how you "captured" that snow day. All your papers and embellishments make such a perfect frame for those photos.

  4. What a fun This and That choice. I need to use more ribbon or twine. I chose ribbon for the layout I just linked and got my layout to work for all 3 challenges. Look forward to this every month.

  5. Thanks for a great challenge! I love twine and could definitely do better using my ribbon stash, so thank you for that!

  6. Thanks for the challenge -- I used ribbon and combined with the mood board!

  7. My first challenge of the year! I used twine and combined with the mood board challenge.

  8. Great challenges this month. I combined all three on my layout. Looking forward to next months challenges.

  9. wonderful fun challenge this month, i'm in just under the wire :)
