Crazy Egg Challenge - BACK TO SCHOOL!!!

Is it really Thursday again already???  How did that happen?  Where did August go?!? :)  We had some pretty spectacular submissions for my sketch challenge last week - so, thanks again for all the crafty awesomeness that you gave us Chicks! ......are you ready for a CRAZY EGG CHALLENGE this week?! It's the 5th Thursday of the month, so that means it's Crazy Egg time!!

This time around for the Crazy Egg Challenge, it's my turn (Lori) to offer up a prize for one lucky participant. I have been gutting out my "stash" and selling off a lot of extra goodies - but...lucky for the winner - I kept back a special "basket" just for these times! Here's the prize package I put together for this week:

The theme for this month's Crazy Egg Challenge (Challenge #105) is "BACK TO SCHOOL!" 

I know people have mixed feelings about sending kids back to school, and I'm one of those people. I have enjoyed having the kids around home for the summer, however, I am thoroughly looking forward to getting back into a routine. It might be a crazy, busy routine...but it will be a routine just the same!! 

Here's my submission for this week's challenge (click on picture to go to my blog for all the crafty details):




Now let's take a peek at what our Guest Designer, Ann, and the rest of the Chicks have created for your crafty-viewing pleasure:

Circles, Circles and more Circles

Good morning everyone and welcome back to 4 Crafty Chicks.  It is Thursday and we have a fun new challenge for you.  First off thank you so much to everyone who played in our Up, Up and Away challenge last week.  The inspiration was spectacular!!  Secondly our hostess with the mostess this week is me "Tamie".  It is my pleasure to bring you another fun filled challenge.

One of the first things I learned to draw when I was younger was a circle, my challenge to my fellow creators is to use circles on your creations this week. We love circles here at 4 Crafty Chicks whether they are fruit, the sun, bubbles, stamps, die cuts, punches or the Olympic metals (wink) etc...


CHALLENGE #103 - CIRCLES, CIRCLES AND MORE CIRCLES

Our fabulous Guest Designer has provided us with some more wonderful inspiration.

Ann


It was so much fun to see exactly how many circles I could fit into my creation. Now I must admit some rearranging had to happen to make it work but I was determined to have more circles on this card than I ever have before...LOL.

Tamie 


Inspiration galore from my fellow DT's.  They sure did put the circles to work on their creations.  Thanks gals for the awesome creativity this week.

4 Crafty Chicks #101 Distressing

Hello Friends, first post for August, time sure is flying by, fall will be upon us soon, so enjoy your summer time.  Today it is my turn to host the challenge, and as you read this I am on 5 day mini holiday with my dear friend Lori, and I do hope everyone is having a great day, and thanks to my fellow chicks for picking up anything that may happen.  We would like to Welcome our new Guest Designer for the month of August, Annie from Annie's Crafty Heaven.  We look forward to each week seeing all that talent.  Thanks Annie and Welcome!  Now onto today's challenge, I thought a little distressing would be a good idea.  Lets gets inky or messy.  So use some ink, use a distressing too, scissors, whichever that would make your project distressed.  Thanks for stopping, and we do hope you play along.  Here is what the design team has created for you this week.
