Geri (Atria's Creations) hosts a couple of fun and unusual challenges at Ivy Scraps each month and her paper challenge is always a great time. She provides you some paper and you have to create an element, layout, or whatever makes you happy. This month Gloria made this spooktacular journal tag and you can direct download this from the Challenge Thread, along with whatever others may decide to share with you.


Nelleke, who everyone just LOVES, hosts a very different WordArt challenge each month at IVY SCRAPS, in that she gives you "words" to scrap a layout with in the form of a quote, poem, song, etc. Gloria has been making a WordArt Element to share with all participants each month using some of the words from Nelleke's challenge...just for the fun of it (it doesn't earn participation points, but that's ok, she has so much fun and earns more than she needs each month). So if you like the WordArt and want to download it FREE, or just want to see what Nelleke and the girls are up to....check out this Challenge HERE.

Mini pixel kits are priced at only $1 which makes them extremely affordable and with a common palette used each month you are guaranteed that the kits created for that particular month will mix and match beautifully. The Mini Pixel kits can be found in IVY SCRAPS STORE.
