Linda was. Can you imagine creating a newsletter and then not getting it delivered into your mailbox! That's what happened to Linda and about 100 other people too last week, even though Linda sent it out twice.
Apparently our Newsletter provider (a huge company) is having some issues and is now working with Microsoft to try and figure out what's gone wrong. In the meantime, the Newsletter continues to be published and we can send it to you independently if you let us know you didn't receive it.
Hopefully you have subscribed to the Blog and receive notice when I blog, so we can still reach you outside of the Newsletter. You can do that by looking on the right side of the blog where it says......
Keep up by Email With What's New at the Craft Nook.
If you put your email in there, then each time I blog you'll receive notice in your inbox.
I have a few things to share with you tonight. First I want to show you the beautiful page that won the prize at our Mega Crop in the embellishment challenge. In this challenge the scrappers had to use a number of different elements that we decided on, plus they had to add a few more from a list that we provided. All these elements were covered in the "Make and Takes" they had the opportunity to pariticipate in.
The winner of this prize was Birgit and she has been away on vacation, so I have waited until she returned before I posted it.great page she created using many of the techniques she learned. Among them were the hand made flowers, clear rhinestones which she coloured to match her page and the flowers she made as well as the twisted cord for the horses tack. I like the way she took half circles to create a border at the top as well. A lovely page....mind I think her subject matter was a great starting point too. We've watched Sydney as she's learned among other things to ski, skate and now ride a horse.
I still have one more page to share with you that I will at a later date. That's the open challenge winner, so keep watching.
Hope you've enjoyed the creativity from both Birgit and Linda and her girlies. Perhaps they have inspired you in some way to create something new.
Until later, Happy Crafting,
