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 #97

YAYY! It's Friday, and it's supposed to be another warm day here in VA. I am so excited this time of year, all the pretty birds are competing with their shrills and song, and the kids voices echo through our cul de sac with longer afternoons. I hope you all have wonderful plans for the weekend? 
Thank you all so much for your wonderful entries into our 4s challenge last week - I have to tell you that we have the most creative participants here on our blog. Your work is always so adorable which makes it hard to choose on a weekly basis!
Before introducing our new challenge, here are our top picks of the week:

(so many wonderful groupings of four)

(4 patterned papers - amazingly beautiful)
(Altered Godiva box - her blog has all the sweet details that is a must-see!)

Such beautiful creations, congratulations ladies! Please contact me at with the subject line as GUEST BAR-TENDER for your opportunity to debut next week's challenge. :)

And now for our current theme which most of you may already be working on in reality:


We want to see the outdoors - flowers, picket fences, butterflies - of your gardens. I keep hearing lawn mowers every afternoon, which gets me excited for springtime!
