Week #3 Challenge!

First off, I want to say how super excited we are to have so many participants these first few weeks! The Paper Variety is shaping up to be quite a successful challenge blog and we have all of you to thank for that! It's such a joy to see all of your ideas and creations, so much inspiration for everyone. We hope you'll join us week after week and share all of your wonderful projects! A huge thanks to our generous sponsors, too! Aren't they wonderful!?


Our third challenge is a theme to follow


I'm so happy to present our sponsor this week!!!

The Scrapbooking Cottage is one of my very favorite scrappy shoppes! The owner, Stacy is a super sweet gal, too. Love her! She has generously donated this awesome Cosmo Cricket "Togetherness" collection kit! Please join us again Friday when we'll share more about Stacy and her fabulous store!

Our awesome Design Team A created some gorgeous projects to inspire you!

I love the simplicity of Lisa's layout. Her butterfly banner and paper flowers are just too adorable!

Love Sarah's super colorful layout.. the rocket theme and design are fantastic!

Such a beautiful card! Love how Tere added black tulle and a small bit of green!

Check out this gorgeous color combination! I love all of Yara's little details!

What a clever idea to make an address book! Love how April added tiny butterflies to the patterned paper!

I included alot of black outlining to make pieces *pop* and also stitched with red twine.

Now it's your turn! Create your paper project following this theme and add it to the InLinkz below before Tuesday at noon est. Just one entry per person, please. New entries only please - do not backlink to older posts. A winner will be randomly chosen Tuesday evening and will receive the awesome Cosmo Cricket kit from The Scrapbooking Cottage! Try to add your project before Sunday if you'd like a chance to be chosen for a Submission Spotlight!

We're looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations!
