The September winners are....

I hope everyone had a great time sharing their projects with us in September.  Thanks to all for joining in our contest, there were SO many beautiful creations it was so very hard for the DT to pick the favorites this month. A very special thanks to SLS Lines for providing the prize this month and for the gorgeous stamps that she gave the design team for their creations.  Please drop by her Etsy store to show support for the artists who create the stamps we all love!

Here's a badge for our winner this month

The winner this month  is:
  Why do you have 71 entries, there's only 66 participants?  
Here's how the drawing works, double entries were given this month if you used a SLS Lines image.  If you did, your extra entry was added at the BACK of the list. For example if you were entry #1 using, your entries for the drawing would be numbers 1 and 67. If the second card using a SLS Lines image was the 10th card in our challenge the drawing numbers would be 10 and 68.  Double entries are simply added again to the end of the list in the order they were acquired.
Congratulations!  The winner should please contact Holley ( with your email.  Please grab the Winner Badge to share on your blog and thanks so much for joining our challenge this month.  We look forward to seeing more creations from you and all the other participants

Your Scrapbook Place September Challenge: Anything Goes with SLS Lines

Wow, September is here!  How quickly did summer go by and now everyone is back to school?  Well, the Your Scrapbook Place (YSBP) Challenge blog is ready for some new fun.  This month the challenge is Anything Goes with a bonus if you use an image from  SLS Lines

Drop by and check out our sponsor's awesome images, she makes the most beautiful fairies and lady images and also the funniest monsters and quirkiest people that just make me laugh. She also has fun adult size coloring books, great digi papers (which you will see in our examples),  I truly enjoy all her great images. If you want to see some fun cards using her stamps, you can see her blog HERE.

Please share your beautiful cards and other handmade creations with us.   You can see our rules on the right hand column.  Feel free to  grab our badge to put on your blog so everyone knows you play with us!  If you missed last month's winner, it was posted yesterday, so just take a peek.

Lets start this month with some inspiration using great images from our sponsor
Virginia created these fun cards using a wonderful Pirate set, this set comes with 5 pirate images, 2 Skull&Crossbone images, and 3 coordinating digi papers for only $5.  Just wait until the Sept 15th where we will show more of these great images and papers with two more projects from Virginia!

Using Watercolor Daisy Clipart set with stunning set of 18 florals and 3 background for only $5.50;  On Sept 15th you will get to see more beautiful cards with this set!

Kathy B created a fun moving theme card using this castle called Whimsical House.  Wouldn't you want to live here?
Pat made this lovely project using Book Lover Library Reader.  How true is this sentiment, "It's always better to have too much to read than not enough."

Joyce created this fun card with a wonderful Halloween theme stamp called Halloween Pumpkins.

Holley used this  adorable little monster to make a tea card. He's called monster in a teacup.  Now thinking, I should have made the sentiment, "Were you expecting some tea, or some company?"


Now it's your turn to share with us!  We look forward to seeing what you make, you are welcome to enter your cards and other handcrafted items, no back-linking please.  Don't forget there's a bonus entry if you use a stamp from SLS Lines.  Be sure and check out the wonderful images at SLS Lines;  They have a challenge each month, so you can share your creations on their challenge blog as well, it's located here

On the 15th we'll be sharing some additional cards using more gorgeous image, so come back and check them out
