Well we sure hope you all get a good headstart on your Christmas cards with last month's challenge. We saw some amazing cards-you guys really rocked it in July.

Now it's time for a new challenge: What can you create that is NOT A CARD??!!  All you scrapbookers, out there, let's see some layouts.  Painters, let's see some canvases!  Upcyclers, let's see you turn that trash into treasure!!  Home decorators, how about you show us your altered art!!!

Here are a few projects to inspire you. The first is a mixed media canvas that reads, "Even today, Miracles still happen."
 Melissa has been working on calendars:
Here's ATC used on a box of chocolates (wish they were going to me):
 Into scrapbooking? Here's a cute layout:
Love mini albums? Here's one made out of Starbucks coffee cup sleeves and Hello Kitty diecuts:
 Now it's your turn!! Let's see your Projects, as long as they're ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

Prizes will go to two random people. The first is to a participant who follows our challenge rules and we have a lovely grab bag of new stamps for you!. The second grab bag contains some lovable very gently used stamps which will go to a random person who comments on this post.
Here is the first prize package and we'll leave the 2nd grab bag as a surprise!!:
Three NIP rubber stamps from Stampin' Bella, Queen Kat Designs, and Magnolia.

So what else do you need - inspiration (see above); paper (raid your stash); a trip to your local thrift store...just dive in and have fun and hopefully be a winner!
