Winner of Challenge #4!

Check out the main page for the latest challenge! sugarandspicechallenge.blogspot.com

  Thanks to all the ladies who participated in the 4th challenge for Sugar and Spice.  I honestly think we had the best entries yet!  The winner of the awesome package from Butterfly Reflections is…

I just love her fun card for spring!  

You will receive this Pink Paislee Hello Sushine collection pictured below:  

A big thank you to our sponsor! Thank you for your kindness, generosity, and good taste!  We love you, Vanessa from Butterfly Reflections Ink - you are an awesome business owner and friend! 

For your information, in Japan here, we have a bunch of holidays grouped together into a week, known as Golden Week.  During this time, I will be doing some spring cleaning and much needed reorganization and tidying (yes…the scrapspace is on the list, too!)  So I hope you understand when I announce our challenge is taking a break for a the first half of May…we will return with a new *mixed* challenge on May 14th.  Because of the long break, the challenge will run a bit longer…until June 1st.

Oh, I am thinking to have the challenges start on a Wednesday and end on a Sunday (regularly it will be about a week and a half to finish the challenge, giving me time to prep the posts etc before the next challenge).

Also, I would like to have your input on prizes… would it be preferred to have a prize pack (pre-picked) or a gift certificate??  I was thinking about rotating one prize pack and one gift certificate.  Would you prefer May's prize in goodie form or a gift certificate?? Send me info to my address:  makescrappygoodness@gmail.com or any other the other ways you know how to contact me.  :)

Have a great week and may it be Golden!!

Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge #4

Hi, everyone!  I hope you are starting to feel like spring, unless you live in more northern areas where they still have snow!!

Click here for the winner of the last challenge.

This time around our challenge will not be colour-related… so you can pick your own colours or combine with a different challenge whose colours you like!

Once again, please include a direct link to this challenge post (Challenge #4) and include the title Sugar and Spice Crafty Challenge.  Also, you may enter up to three times if you like.  But each entry needs to be a different link or InLinkz won't allow it.

Here are the guidelines:
1. You only need to submit a link to a photo of your completed work by the due date. I am using Inlinkz, so it will close automatically when the time is up.
2. Include a direct link to this challenge post in your description.
3. You may combine challenges. But your work must be a new creation. No backdated posts allowed.
4.  You can enter up to three times (to up your chances of winning (^_~) )!
5. The winner will be a random generator (I couldn't pick anyone) and will be sent a prize as their winnings, along with bragging rights.

I'd like to share some inspiration photos for this challenge and give you a chance to guess what it is…

It's April Showers Brings May Flowers!

Probably got that one, huh?

I have even more exciting news!

This time we are being sponsored by the awesome scrapbooking online store… Butterfly Reflections Ink!!  There are always a bunch of new products in stock, the prices are good, and the shipping is super fast! If you haven't been there before, be sure to go on over and check it out by clicking here.

So the prizes are in line with our theme and are totally awesome!!!  The winner chosen at random will receive a 6x6 paper pad, a 3x7 stamp set, and puffy stickers all from the new Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine collection.  Here are a couple pics of the gorgeous goodies:
