ABC time

No, school is not back in session but we do have an ABC challenge for you this week! But before I get to that, a word of thanks to all who shared their favorite technique with us last week - awesome ideas!

Also, a reminder that in order to participate in our challenges, you MUST use at least some Close To My Heart products. Otherwise, your link will be removed.

This is also the last challenge of the month so in order to be eligible for one of the great prizes from our sponsors, Angel Shifflett and Sharon Holmes, you must have your entries linked up no later than 10 pm EST this Saturday, May 28th. You can still participate in any of the challenges posted in May to be eligible for the prizes.

Ok so here is your next challenge, should you choose to accept it:
ABC = Anything But a Card.

It can be a layout, gift item, packaging - anything that is not a card.

Let's see what the Design Team created, starting with a returning Guest DT - Shari Maclaskey! Shari missed out on one of the challenges in her month as Guest DT due to us taking a week off so I invited her to join us for one challenge this month.

Adorable! You can read more about Shari's ABC project on her blog Shari's Paper Trail. Thanks for joining us, Shari!

Such a great variety! Awesome work, team! 

Now it's your turn. Let's see what you can create that isn't a card. Remember to link your project up here by 10 pm EST Saturday~ happy creating!
