New Releases are Live and Check Out the Color Challenge

New Releases are Live at Pickleberrypop and check out the Color Challenge!  This month’s Color Challenge is to use a B&W photo and only three (3) colors for all other elements used.  You know I love lots of elements and colors so it truly was a challenge for me.  I used Chunlin Designs’ new kit, Fly Away.  If you’re up to the challenge, check it out here.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Pickleberrypop

I have a fun Tic Tac Toe Challenge for you this month that’ll give you a break from everything else going on around you.  This is just one of the many challenges available this September at Pickleberrypop.  You can find more challenges in the forum here.  Here’s my Tic Tac Toe layout.


For my layout, I used Summer Joy by TirAmisu Design

And here’s a peek at the challenge card we’re using this month.  I’d love for you to come & play!

There’s Still Time for July Challenges

There’s still time for July Challenges at Pickleberrypop!  Here’s a layout I created using this month’s Mystery Box.  The Mystery Box Challenge is always fun and this month is delightful.

As I mentioned in my last post, my grandkids were here for a week and one of the things they love to do when they visit is riding on our tractor and riding lawnmower!  Here’s the youngest, almost three, on the tractor.  For him, it’s just as fun when it’s not even running.

Today is a Good Day for a Challenge

Today is a good day for a challenge!  Have you checked out all the great challenges on the forum at Pickleberrypop?  If not, allow me to share one of my all-time favorites, the Use It All Challenge. This month, Chantal at Chunlin Designs has a sweet little mini kit for you to play with.

 

So download it and create a layout.  Finally, post your layout in the Monthly Mojo Gallery and Use It All Challenge thread.  While you’re there I hope you’ll share some love with others. Here’s the layout I created.  Have I told you recently that I always love a little red in a kit?

I’m Hosting June’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I’m hosting June’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge at Pickleberrypop!  I hope you’ll join me this month for this challenge and all the other fun challenges offered at Pickleberrypop.

The challenge is simple.  Create a layout using one column, row, or diagonal group. Here’s a preview of the Tic Tac Toe board.  Be sure to tell me which group you chose.

Here’s my layout. I chose the diagonal top left to bottom right; 6+ different ocean elements, sand & bling with glitter & jewels.

How’s Your Signature?

How’s your siggy (signature)? Is it current?  When was the last time you updated it?  I hadn’t realized how old mine was until I decided to participate in this month’s Siggy Challenge at Pickleberrypop.  I was long overdue!  By the way, my old siggy was almost 2 years old.  Eek! How is that even possible?  Here’s my new one.  The colors in this kit make me smile 😉

Kit: Live Life Happy

Designer: Chunlin Design

If your siggy is looking a little out of season or you just want something fresh, check out this month’s Siggy Challenge hosted by Beth.  You’ll be glad you did!  I think it’s fun to show a little of your personality in the forums and this is your chance.

Use It All Challenge at Pickleberrypop

The Use It All Challenge at Pickleberrypop this month is hosted by Vendula of Natali Designs. She’s provided a sweet little mini kit for you for free. All you have to do is create and post a layout using the mini kit. Here’s a preview of For You 2. You’ll find the challenge here.

And here’s the layout I created. I also wrote a little poem to go along with the layout. I was raised in a small coastal town on the Gulf of Mexico. I love the ocean & can recall all the senses associated with being near it. My poem speaks to some of the senses of the sea.
