Here at RTB we are so excited to kick off a new year of crafting!
We encourage you to challenge yourself, raise your own level of crafting, and keep your resolution to use those new stamping items. And yes, we will even use those supplies that you just had to have in your collection. ;)

Challenge #8

Hello everyone and happy Friday!!! Guess what? Mr. Linky was so honery that he disappeared with all of the links, I have them in a personal file, but had to end the 3s challenge early so that I could use Mr. Linky in today's posting. My apologies! I am still learning about this widget and will be upgrading my membership so this doesn't happen again. To compensate, there are 3 winners this week - thank you all SO much for your patience and understanding! Without further ado here are the top 3:

*Removed for publication* Congratulations Irit!

Congratulations ladies! Please email me so that I can send you the information for next week's design.

And now on to this week's challenge:


To honor this great celebration in March, use a BOOK somewhere in your card/project and commemorate all of our achievments in our lives.
Now this may sound 'different' and you may not think you have a book image, but search your stash and you'll be surprised at what you discover!
Here are some incredible samples by the wonderful Design Team:

Guest Designer 
Judy Applegarth

and her wonderful Bookwormabella
and her adorable Wendy (TGF)

and her book cover by Elly Walton

with her sweet Crafty Secrets image

featuring an Inktegrity critter:
My card
created with a charity image by Inktegrity

Wonderful samples ladies! I knew you would go down in history with this challenge! ;)
So now we've got you thinking...and I know you have an awesome image in your stash. Come on and join us, Mr. Linky is waiting for you - and I am keeping my fingers crossed that he behaves this time.
Happy week to you all!
