We interrupt this awesome challenge to let you know about another challenge blog I've started :)
A scrapbooking challenge blog!! Scrapbooking ABCs with Dea

OK, back to Christmas Crafts!!

Wow! September already!!! Oh dear, getting closer to that special time of the year!!
This month the challenge is to add Christmas food or drink OR a Winter food or drink on your project.Remember, it doesn't have to be a card! It can be any kind or project as long as it fits the theme of food/drink!!

And, can you believe it!
This month marks 11 years for this challenge blog!!! I initially started it wayyyyy back in 2008. I let it go sometime along the way for a while and someone else was running it. She was then going to close it down and I asked for it again and she passed it back to me!!
I was so happy as this was my baby and I loved this challenge blog! 
So in honor of this wonderful occasion I will be choosing a random winner who will get a $20 gift certificate to an online craft store of their choice!!

Here are the creations by the

GINGERBREAD GALS (posts on 1st)

*If you post in a gallery, Photo Bucket, Instagram, Facebook or other similar albums we cannot guarantee we will be able to comment.

You MUST include a link back to this blog in your entry post.

Have fun!

This challenge runs until SEPTEMBER 29th.

PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS NOT AN ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG.There is ALWAYS a specific theme unless otherwise noted that it IS an anything goes challenge. We do have these a couple times a year so please make sure you follow the challenge theme. The entries that list this an an "anything goes" entry and it's not may risk having their entry deleted. You will definitely not qualify for Top PICKS if you list it as "anything goes" and it isn't. Thanks for understanding.

Also, there will be no more prize offering as it is getting WAYYYY too expensive to send things in the mail. What I am planning on doing from now until the end of the year, I will collect everyone's names who participates in a challenge and make a draw around Christmas time and send that person a gift certificate to their favorite craft store. This will alleviate the shipping cost. I will make another draw at the end of July of next year again with names from January to July. Then from August to December I will collect names and make another draw.

PLEASE NOTE-THIS IS NOT AN ANYTHING GOES CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE BLOG.There is ALWAYS a specific theme unless otherwise noted that it IS an anything goes challenge. We do have these a couple times a year but please make sure you follow the challenge theme. We are finding that a lot of the entries lately are listing the challenge as "anything goes" when it is NOT!! The entries that list this an an "anything goes" entry and it's not may risk having their entry deleted. You will definitely not qualify for the prize and Top 3 if you list it as "anything goes" and it isn't.
