Marci's Challenge on Marci's Scrapping Spot

So...I've been thinking about what challenge I wanted to give you all today. What I keep coming up with is that "No Housework Day" or not...some things just have to get done, right? And aren't we blessed to have people in our lives that pick up the slack for us when we need help? It may not be with housework (though it could be.) Maybe the help is at work, or with our kids, or even emotional. But these people are downright irreplaceable in our lives and we love them! 

So my challenge to you is to make a thank-you card. If you send it to the person you had in mind, so much the better! Monday morning I will choose a random winner to receive a set of Zig Chalk Writer pens in lovely pastel colors!

Theresa'a Challenge on Scrapbookers Anonymous

Hello, welcome to our challenge blog. We may just get you inspired to pull out those long lost eyelets, or that never used scrappy tool. So, we hope you come along for the ride... get ready to start using your SCRAPBOOK stash. =) =) Use a minimum of 23 eyelets on your page or card. let's see what ya got!!!

As far as our little blog hop challenge... we ask that you dig into your stash and use a frame on a layout or card.  It can be a premade frame or a frame of buttons, flowers, brads, etc... all we ask is that whatever you use for your frame, that it comes from your stash. Oh, and as always feel free to play along with another challenge for the same project. By participating in our challenge, think of it as a way to clean up your scrapbook stash, one less item to store and take up space... =) You are playing along for a chance to win a UNITY stamp kit called Folk Inspired. If you have not used Unity before, you are missing out. They are great stamps. 
To participate in this HOP challenge and be entered for the prize, link your project up below. You must have your project added below before 11pm EST on April 10th. 
Create a layout or card using a frame. it can be a premade or homemade frame of any kind, using whatever you have in your stash.
