Welcome friends and new visitors! I'm glad you've stopped by to celebrate the 100th Etsy Inspired Challenge with me. I so enjoy being a part of this team and sharing my Etsy Inspired projects with you all every week. Since this week marks the 100th challenge we have all sorts of inspiration and prizes for you to enjoy! With sponsors like Unity Stamp Company, Lawn Fawn, May Arts, Limelight Papercrafts, Soft Pencil Designs, and Charleston Scrapbooking you are going to want to be sure to visit each of the Design Team members' blogs and check out the Etsy Inspired blog for all the details on how to play along in the challenge this week.
First things first...our featured Etsy shop this week, Cathy Walters, is sure to have a pendant that will inspire you. I love that her pendants are double sided so that you can use whichever side fits your mood or outfit better. :) And if you play along in the challenge this week, you could win the pendant of your choice! One of my personal favorites is the Make a Wish pendant. Wouldn't this make a great birthday gift?!
And here is my birthday project...feel free to click on the layout for a closer look.
This layout documents my oldest son's 7th birthday celebration. I love the fun patterned paper and cupcake stickers from Creative Imaginations Studio 101 birthday line. And of course I used some American Crafts thickers for the title and wish sentiment.
In addition to a pendant from Cathy Walter's shop, another person who plays along in the challenge this week could win a fabulous grand prize filled with all sorts of crafting goodies. So be sure to take some time this week to visit Cathy Walters, find an item that inspires you, create an Etsy Inspired project of your own and link it up to the Etsy Inspired blog by Friday at noon PST for your chance to win.
Now, you can also increase your chances of winning a prize by visiting each Design Team members blog and leaving a comment. We each have a great item from one of our sponsors to give away. Want to know what you could win by leaving a comment here?! :) How about Unity's fabulous Donna Downey Inspired stamp! Let me know what inspires you! I will announce the winner here on my blog Satuday, August 14th.
After you leave your comment here, head on over to these lovely ladies for more prizes and inspiration. Have fun!
