PP362 Challenge Winners

Hi everyone!  I know I say this every time I have a challenge, but it's really true!  It's SO difficult to pick a winner!  I have to say that there were some amazingly creative cards in the gallery this week!  You really pulled out all the stops!  I pinned several of them!

Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 
And now for our Headliner...
                                                                   
Lynda


Lynda's one-layer card was so unique, I just couldn't stop looking at it!  The pumpkins just seemed to glow and shimmer....kind of like those mercury glass pumpkins that are so popular!  I love the vintage brown background, especially with the swirls and script, and her hand-drawn sentiment was perfect.  The shading she gave all the elements made them seem to pop right off the page!  If I had this card, I would frame it as a work of art! Congrats, Lynda, for being my Headliner this week!

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us!  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a fabulous Sketch Challenge from Nance!

PP361 Challenge Winners

Hi Everyone.

Thank you to all of you who played along and shared your beautiful creations with us.  It was hard for all of  us on the design team to choose our winners this week as there were so many really beautiful cards in the gallery.

Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.





And now on to our Headliner.

Julie


I loved Julie's fabulous little baby card.  The polka dot paper is always perfect for a baby card, but the touches of silver took it to a whole new level and the little green bow was the wonderful finishing touch.  This card is whimsical, yet sophisticated.  What Mom wouldn't want to receive this beauty to celebrate the birth of their little one?  Congratulations, Julie.  You are my HEADLINER this week.

Don't forget to come back for LeAnne's wonderful CAS challenge tomorrow.

PP360 Challenge Winners

Hi everyone - Claire here. What a fabulous gallery of back to school projects we have had this week! Now, before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team.

 
And now for our Headliner...
                                                                   


Esther

I knew that Esther's card was my choice the minute I saw it!  The vintage feel of this wonderful creation took me back to my childhood.  The embossed ruler, the flashcard and the cursive practice on the journal paper made this former teacher's heart skip a beat!  The chalkboard background and the embellishments are perfect to complete this fabulous card!  Congratulations, Esther you are my HEADLINER this week!  

Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us!  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Please come back tomorrow for a pretty Color Challenge from Jaydee!

PP360 - A Theme Challenge from Claire

Hello everyone!  Claire here, as your hostess for this week's challenge at The Paper Players!  Before we get to it, I would like to thank all of you who played along with Laurie's fabulous sketch challenge.  The gallery was full of fabulous creations and we sure enjoyed visiting all of your blogs.  


This week's theme is Back To School!  Although we have been back to school for a month in Georgia, a lot of children start school after Labor Day.  There are so many possibilities for your projects--a teacher, a student, a coach, a bus driver or anyone that keeps the school operating each day.  It is always so nice thank all of the people that help educate our children! 



Before you grab your pens, pencils and paper, take a look at what our marvelous Design Team has created to inspire you!
