A Scrapling Challenge!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a very enjoyable weekend! Thanks to everyone who participated in our CCEE sketch challenge last week, we so loved seeing your creations.

Our challenge this week is another brought to us by Frances Byrne. One of Frances' favorite new things to create are scRaplings so this week's CCEE challenge is to create a scrapling. For those of you who haven't heard of scraplings before you can see a few more on Frances' blog here.

Scraplings are normally 1.25" x 4.25" because they are often made from the off cuts you get when you make a square card (4.25" square) from a piece of card that is 4.25" x 5.5". However you can make your scraplings a little wider depending on what you are working on at the time.

BUT for this challenge they cannot be any wider then 2.5 inches that is for the base of the scrapling ... you can have wider pieces hanging off like I did with my scrapling above, that is up to you .... as long as they are no wider then 2.5 inches.

So now it is your turn to play .... all you need to do is to create a scrapling following the guidelines above and then come back here and leave a comment on this post with a link to your scrapling so that we can see what you created. Don't forget that if you upload your scrapling to SCS to include the keyword CCEEC.

So now it is time to see what the CCEE Stampers came up with this week:

Sorry Hoots, but the challenge was changed. Quite awhile back actually. Didn't you get the memo? Oops...our bad. Sorry you were left out of the loop. Hope you can forgive us!! *grin*

We even have a special guest designer today. Glad you could join us Joanne (JoJot on SCS)

The real challenge was to make an Owl Birthday Card and mail it to Frances since it's her birthday today. Well, not today if you live in the US. But Australia is a bit ahead of us in the time department, so we're starting early.
