Earth Hour Cybercrop Almost Over

Have you uploaded your entries?  You might even have time to sneak another one in before the cut off time.

Here's a review of the challenges:

Challenge 1 - Card Sketch - Deanne Stewart-Mills

For your challenge, as well as using the sketch to make a card, use earthy colours and include something recycled or re-purposed on there. It would be great to see some kraft cardstock on there, but I realise not everyone has some, so perhaps a neutral colour will be just as good 

Challenge 2 - Journalling Challenge - Tracy Lamoon

For this challenge I want you to choose a photo and concentrate on your deepest thoughts...  I would like for you to write about heart-felt feelings.  And I want these thoughts on some hidden journalling... I have done mine on a tag and hidden it behind the photo.
Challenge 3 - Inspiration Image - Lauren Bell

 You challenge (if you choose to accept it) is to draw inspiration from the above image and create a layout. I would also like to see you incorporate something from nature on your layout as well eg. sticks, leaves, sand or even dirt!

Challenge 4 - Layout Sketch - Belle Comerford

Tonights criteria for your sketch challenge is...

* Have a low scrapping footprint (that means some white space on your layout)

* Go green (somewhere, somehow)

* Reduce, Reuse, Recycle (packaging of some type on your layout)
