We're Back!

The Paper Variety weekly challenges are back! 
We are so very excited about this new year with a new Design Team, new challenges and some great new sponsors! We hope you enjoyed your holidays and we're so glad that you've joined us again!
Let's get right to it, shall we!?


 We are overjoyed to introduce Your Scrapbook Stash as this week's sponsor! Be sure to check back this Friday when we share more about Your Scrapbook Stash and it's most sweet and generous owner, Erica!

Check out this great Basic Grey "Wander" mini album kit!! A bunch of Wander patterned paper with matching cardstock stickers and rub-ons, alphas, journal spots, a mini-album and more! Everything you need for a fabulous mini album about your latest travels and so much left over for layouts and cards too! 


What a fabulous prize! 
But if that's not enough to get your creative mojo hoppin', take a look at these gorgeous DT examples!!

My puppies playing in the first snow this year! This paper (from Fancy Pants) was perfect for this challenge, most of the snowflakes were already there, the rest I cut with my Cricut! To find out how I added the "snow" to the Making Memories letters check out my blog! Happy Scrapping! -Amy

This picture is my sweet girls waiting (im)patiently for my mom to get home last year on Christmas Eve so that we could all open our gifts. I used Fancy Pants Frosted papers, which I've had forever and was really excited to finally use! -April
I have snowflakes EVERYWHERE!!! heehee -Lisa

Hi girls!! I really don't have many winter photos, here in Puerto Rico it's summer all the year but I found these photos(aren't the best quality) when I went with my hubby to N.Y. in 2004. That day we went to Central Park and I was frozen.!!..the temperature was 33 F, that for me is like below! imagine it, here it's hot all the time. But we had a great time, we had a lot of fun!!! -Marilyn

This picture was taken last winter while the three of us waiting for T (subway at Boston-Newton) in the chilly weather (because the station located in a surface/street level so it gets chilly when we wait for the train), but my daughter always had an idea to kill time and that day she asked me to make silly face with her and my husband capture this moments. :) -Suzy

Brr! it's cold. My DH and kids were waiting for the opening of American Museum of Natural History at NYC! We came early, and we were waiting like 45 minutes before the opening. Worth the wait, though! This museum is amazing! We have family at South Jersey and we made the travel that christmas, so the kids could see snow. I guess, we chose the wrong christmas year to go!! LOL! -Yara

My cute lil nephew at the Christmas parade. It was cold that night but he stayed warm and cozy in his stroller with blankets. I used FP Hot Chocolate - looooooooooove this kit! Lots of distressing and outlining too to make areas pop- I love all the colors.-Abby
