CHALLENGE #71 - "IT'S A SPECIAL OCCASION"

CHALLENGE #71 - "IT'S A SPECIAL OCCASION"
STARTS TODAY, FRIDAY, 26 SEPTEMBER 2014 & ENDS AT MIDNIGHT [CDT US] 9 OCTOBER 2014
This is a very 'special occasion' to us for a couple of reasons! Let's get started. . .


We're honored to have several new Simply Create Too Design Team Members. We think you'll enjoy their creations as much as we do. We'd like to introduce two of them:
HILLARY:
"I'm Hillary, I'm a twenty-something living in Oklahoma with my husband and our 2 rescue pups. I am a radiologic technologist by day working at a surgery center. My mother and aunt bought me my first scrapbooking supplies when I turned 14 shortly after moving to Oklahoma from Germany so I could scrap all my travel pictures. I have loved paper crafts ever since! I just got into card marking a few years ago and it has become my favorite hobby! I also enjoy bowling, video games, and target practice. This is my inspiration project for Challenge #71":

LISA:
"Hi, my name is Lisa Mensing and I live Lillington, NC. I’ve been crafting for as long as I remember in some form or another. Crafting during the holidays with mom as a small child, helping my niece and nephews with school projects, to making birthday and wedding cakes, invitations, and decorations for parties. However, my love of paper crafting only came about 4 years ago. I was looking for a picture to hang in my dining room for Halloween. I couldn’t find one and that’s when I decided I would make it myself. Researching, I came across Copic makers! WOW! The wonder grew from there. Well, here I am now with a whole room dedicated to paper crafting, The Crafting Cave. I can hideaway in my cave for a whole day whenever I want, good music, candle glowing, and my mind free to wonder in any direction it wants. I serve on two other Design Teams right now and I love every minute of it. I love to have my mind challenged and think outside the box while following the rules. And I’m honored to be adding Simply Create Too, to my list of Design Teams. This is my Challenge #71 project":
