Memory Box Challenge #27 Go with the Flow- Water Theme (beach/fish/waves/shells/ocean)

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 neutral palette challenge

The winner of our blog badge for the last challenge is Donna from the Room in a Cupboard blog.  Her project was simply amazing:



The lucky winner of the draw for the monthly prize is Emma From Emma's Cards UK.

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.


This month's theme is all about water....beaches, fish, ocean, lakes, shells, shore birds,  etc.  You are free to represent your water themed project any way that you want.  We definitely want to see your interpretation!  You can create a card, scrapbook page, gift, home decor item, or whatever you want.  The only requirement is that you have some sort of element that relates to water on your project.

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