TTT Winner and September Challenge

Happy Thursday! Before we get to the new challenge we just have to share the 
She's HERE!!!!!
Shelly's grand daughter arrived on August 15th (on her due date).  She weighed 9 pounds and 11 ounces and is 21 inches long.  And of course she is the most beautiful baby ever!

It is kind of hard to get back to the blog post after that excitement, but here we go!
Just a reminder that our challenges are now on a MONTHLY basis.  Each challenge here at Shelly's Images will begin on the first Thursday of the month and run through the end of the month.  That gives everyone a full month to play along!  Be sure to check out the sidebar for a complete list of upcoming challenges, tutorials, and special events.
AND, the DT will typically be working with a Shelly's Images digi stamp of their choice for each challenge.  That means you get to see lots of different digi stamps each month.  

So...let the fun begin!  To start off we want to announce the winner of our 
August ... OH SCRAP Challenge.  

Our "Beary" Favorite project is #81 Susan Kennedy from Scrap a thousand words!  Susan this project is absolutely stunning.  The layering you created is AMAZING!  And we also loved all the details on the inside of your invitation as well as the details on the envelope.  Great job!  And thanks so much for entering this project in our August Challenge.   Susan, I will be emailing you very soon with your $6 gift voucher.  Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.

Ready for a new challenge?!!?!!  We sure hope so!

  • Life is busy for all of us here at Shelly's Images. We do projects with SI digi stamps and run the challenges just for the love of the hobby. We don't promise to comment on every entry. But all of the designers will go through the entries and stop by their favorites. If you get a comment from us you will know that we loved it enough to drop in and leave a special note. 
We look forward to seeing your creation and thanks so much for joining in our challenge fun!
