Memory Box Challenge #23- Celebrating Mom

Challenge icons

A new month means that it is time to announce a new challenge.   We hope you will play along with the theme through the end of the month.  You will even have the chance to win prizes!  Thank you so much to everyone who created such wonderful projects for last month's ribbon challenge.  We probably had the most eclectic interpretation of a theme that we ever had.  It was wonderful to see how people used their ribbons.

The winner of our blog badge for the last challenge is Darlene Pavlick from Dar's Crafty Creations.  Here is her card using the Memory Box Grosgrain ribbons:

Winner

The lucky winner of the draw for the monthly prize is Junique by Julye B from the blog of the same name.

Please contact me at stampjournal@gmail.com to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.

Mother's Day will be here soon, so it seems appropriate to make cards that celebrate mom.  This month's challenge is to make a card that reminds you of your mom or a mother figure in your life.  How would you make a card or scrapbook page that reminds you of your mom?  Would you use her favorite color?  Her card style?  Does she love flowers?  Sports?  Do you want to make her a card to tell her how much you care?  We would love to see your entries, but we would also love to hear about your mom or an important woman in your life.

Here are a few ideas from the design team to help get you started:
