Creative Scraps Challenge Week #5!!!

Happy Monday Everyone!!!!

This week is our 5th week of Creative Scraps Challenge! Wahoo....I'm so excited that we are still continuing with the challenge week even though I'm SUPER busy with work.  It really forces me to be creative and take time for myself to create. :) And creating makes me happy! 

So for those of you who are new to Creative Scraps Challenge, here is the break down. (For those of you who follow along, we have changed the schedule up a wee bit to cut down the stress of trying to create so much during the week).  Molly (Army Wife Learns the Cricut), Cristi (Scrappin 5 Little Cupcakes) and I will take turns posting our projects throughout the week (except for Thursday). Friday is the day we will post our final project for the week with an added element. Also, on Friday, the very talented Momo (Made by Momo) will join us as our veteran guest designer.  You will all then have a chance to participate starting on Friday and we will pick a winner!!

Here is the schedule for this week:
Today: I'll show my project
Tuesday: Cristi will have a project
Wednesday: Molly will have a project
Thursday: OFF
Friday: I'll be posting every one's projects here on my blog!

As a side note, we have been doing 2 Challenge Weeks per month.  As of right now we are going to try and keep up with that.  If it proves to be too much, we may cut down to 1 week for the month of December since everyone is so busy!

Ok, so for this week our challenge was simple: Use the Smiley Cards Cartridge! I haven't utilized this cartridge at all and I thought it would be a good way to get everyone to use it and get familiar with such a cute cartridge! I also used the "Hugs & Kisses" Stamp from the new Scrappy Mom's Stamp Set "Simple Sentiments"! Wahoo for sneak peaks :)

Don't forget to check out Cristi's Blog tomorrow for her project and I'll have my project for Momo's Tuesday challenge up as well :)
