We "Mustache" You to Join!

Thanks to all of those that joined us last week in the Go Green challenge!  If you didn't get a chance to play along, it's not too late. You have until midnight (EST) on Sunday, March 31st to submit your project for any of March's challenges in order to be considered for this month's Top Ten, to win a March Madness prize, and to be invited as an upcoming guest designer.

What's one of the hottest trends in the crafting world today?  Mustaches!  Of course, many of the trends we see in the crafting world originate in the fashion world, and this one may be no exception.  Mustaches are everywhere!  Just do a Google search.  There's mustaches on candy, straws, t-shirts, glasses, hats, mugs, jewelry and so much more.

So now I "mustache" you a question. :)  Are you up for the challenge?  Create anything you want that features mustaches.  Check out his week's design team creations for a little inspiration. If you want more details on the design team's projects, or you want to show them a little appreciation by leaving a comment, simply click on the designer's name to be directed to their blog.

Don't forget!  We have MARCH MADNESS going on this month.   During the month of March we are offering some prizes for those that play along with our challenges.  One of the prizes is for a first time Heart 2 Heart player.  To be eligible for the prize, you can't be a CTMH consultant, follow the guidelines of the challenge and leave a comment in our comment section of this challenge telling us that it is your first time participating on our challenge blog.  We will then randomly select one new participant to win!

But that's not all!  We will also have additional prizes for a Close To My Heart consultant and non-consultant who participates the most this month.  All you have to do is add a number to the end of your name to help us keep track of the number of times you play.  For example, the linky in the third entry of mine would look something like this..."Tamytha #3".  You don't have to do this, but you won't be eligible for the prize.  Should there be a tie, we will award multiple prizes...'cause we're cool like that. ;) 

Also, be on the lookout for even more prizes that some of our Design Team members may be offering on their blogs.  In order to find out who's offering prizes, you have to go to each designer's blog and check out their post. 

Before you head off to create some fan{tache}tic artwork, I have to remind you of the "rules", because failure to follow them, may cause your linky to be deleted.
  1. Use Close To My Heart products.  Your project doesn't have to be 100% CTMH, but you must use some.  After all, this is a challenge blog created and sponsored by CTMH consultants.
  2. Incorporate this week's challenge...MUSTACHES.
  3. Link your project back to Heart 2 Heart from your blog or online gallery.  If you are linking from a blog, you must link directly to the actual post, not your entire blog.
  4. You also need to mention Heart 2 Heart (H2H) in your blog post.  
  5. Finally, we do ask that you consider turning off word verification, as it does make it easier for the design team (and others) to leave comments.
Now enough of the rules and on to the fun, creative stuff. :)  We can't wait to see what you come up with for this week's challenge.

This challenge could not be coming at a better time. My husband's 50th is coming up and I wanted to do a mustache themed party. It had to be something portable, though, because we are flying half-way across the country to do it. And I needed to be able to make a lot. All these ideas are going to make it easier to plan, execute, and scrapbook later!!

Awesome job, you guys! I am loving all the inspiration, AS ALWAYS!!! Becca, how perfect! I found the mustaches on straws were a huge hit! They would be pretty portable--you could assemble them after you reach your destination! ;) Happy Birthday to your hubs!
