Challenge #31 - Sponsored by Paper Maniac

Yay, its the weekend again and that means its time for a new challenge!! Are you ready? This weeks challenge is one I was really excited about. I have TONS of patterned paper as im sure allot of you do. However, for me I never use it. Well that was why I came up with this challenge, to challenge myself, my team and you to break out that dusty PP and use it!! :)

You know you have some PP that you've been meaning to use but just havent. Well, we challenge you to!!

..Our Sponsor for this Challenge..

Our sponsor for this challenge is Paper Maniac! They are so awesome!! Here's a bit about Paper Maniac...

Paper Maniac LLC provides more than products for papercrafters. It is a place for like-minded crafters to seek inspiration, learn new techniques and find camaraderie. Paper Maniac LLC does not only want to keep up with the trends; we want to be the TRENDMAKERS. Our guiding principles are simple:

We want to take risks in our art and try new things.
We want to leave our little area of papercrafting comfort and apply our skills in something different.
We want to patronize smaller suppliers and help bring their unique, high-quality products to light.
We want to cater to the papercrafters who have reached an intermediate or advanced level and encourage continued growth in their art by providing things that can't be found elsewhere.
We want to reach out to new crafters and encourage their efforts through mentoring.
We want to supply the highest quality product available at a fair price with consistently high customer service. To do this, we will not pre-sell items and then force the customer to wait. If it is on the store site, it is in stock and will ship within 24 hours.
These may be lofty goals, but this is the vision that guides our decisions, from the owner down to the outstanding design team.

Every Thursday they have a Deal of the Week!
Be sure to visit the online store HERE and the blog for some wonderful inspiration!

..Our Darling Design Team Inspiration..


This patterned paper is October Afternoon, I really challenged myself this time... Ive had this PP for awhile now. I rarely use patterned paper, but I think it turned out super cute! And I stitched on some twine from The Twinery. I also used a sketch from Mojo Monday #164.

Great Cards for the challenge! I needed to clarify # 117-The card is submitted by DJ (Debra) I helped her link her card to her selected challenges since she had been in the hospital. I accidently selected my name. Habit sorry!
