Challenge #17--The Gift


To begin, I want to personally thank each and every person who tried out for the Design Team. We had a grand total of 57 applicants and each one was as wonderful as the next! Just because you did not make the team this time around, please don't give up. Like I said EVERY APPLICANT was wonderful!!!! I know some people are truly disappointed at not making the team and for them my heart hurts. However, an extremely tough decision was made and three new members were chosen. With that being stated, we would officially like to welcome Christiane, Debbie, and Jessica to our Design Team!!! You really need to check out their rockin' galleries and blogs. You will be truly inspired. Please post a comment so we know that you've been here and when you do if you have a song you would like to see as a challenge be sure to include it! Thanks!!!

Remember, this is a challenge blog. You may not like every song we present, but hopefully you will find inspiration in the lyrics. This song has a myriad of lines that could be used for layouts, so please scroll down and read through them. We can't wait to see what you create! Please remember to post a link to your layout in the comments so it can be added to the slide show. I create new slide shows every Saturday. Here are the layouts created by our Design Team for The Gift. We hope they inspire you!





Did you think I forgot? The winner of the Holiday Cards is Vannasmom! Please send your mailing address to me so I can get your cards postal! Thanks for posting everyone!!!!

We wanted to take a minute and wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas!

The inside of this card reads...Love, Hope, Peace. This is what I wish for all of you!

This week we are not going to post a new challenge, but you still can be a winner! That is right! The Design Team has put together a set of Holiday cards for you to win. These have all been handcrafted by the current Design Team and will sent to one lucky person chosen from a random drawing. To be entered into the drawing, all you have to do is post a comment to this thread. One of the Design Team members will draw a winner and they will receive an amazing RAK of cards! Here is a sample of the cards someone will be receiving. These were created by our one and only Lilian!

Again, Merry Christmas and make sure you check back next week to see who was selected as the new Design Team Members!
