Challenge #68 - Orange & Green

Hello beautiful people!!
Before we start with October challenge, I'd like to make an announcement: this one is the last challenge I host. But don't be sad, the blog is not closing, our dear friend Melanie will be in charge from now on and I'm sure you will  keep having so much fun around here! I just want you all to know and be sure I enjoyed A LOT the last two years with you!

The reasons I'm stepping aside is very simple: life happens! Sometimes you just have too much to handle, so you have to set priorities and choose what fits in your hands (otherwise everything will drop down!). And as I don't want to let the level of this blog get down (did you noticed our followers are increasing day after day??  \õ/), I prefer someone else I trust to be in charge and keep this place as happy as ever! And I'm sure you will love Mel!!

But I won't be far, you know where to find me. This is my happy place and you can stop by to check the news, get freebies or just say hello, I will enjoy your visit a lot!! And I will love if you sign up for my newsletter, as I will be able to talk directly to you and feel you all a little bit closer.

Ok, blue time is up, a tiny tear insists to get my vision fuzzy...  =D
Kisses, take care!!
♥♥♥♥♥♥

If somebody here waits for Halloween to drees funny and get candies, raise your hand!!  \õ/ (that's me raising both!). Although we are not used to go from door to door asking "Trick or Treat", we do have Halloween parties here in Brazil. And the kids love them!!

So, this month I chose an easy color pallete that you can also combine with your Thanksgiving crafts. You have to use ORANGE & GREEN - perfect combination!

This challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and the prize is 2 digi images for the winner to choose (not valid for new releases)!
Below are the DT creations, lots of inspiration for you!!

PLEASE READ - Linking to the challenge and voting

Hey everyone!
It seems that the link up tool had a tiny rule that I didn't realize before - and it's making a big difference!

Usually you have the whole month to enter the challenges, but when I turn in the voting option on the 1st each month, it seems you can't vote anymore after that (not sure of that yet)! I just realized this now, because I wanted to enable voting along the whole challenge time and the link up button was gone when the voting started...

So, I will change a little bit the way voting is set in order to make sure you still have a whole month to join the challenge: the voting will begin after the 15th and you will have two weeks to vote.

For example: you will have from July 15th to August 15th to enter the challenge and the voting will be enable from August 15th to September 1st. This will give you a whole month to enter the challenge and another two weeks to come back and vote. This way, the voting for the last challenge will be at the same time as the beggining of the next challenge, and you won’t forget to vote!  ;)

 I think this voting option is more transparent, as voting is allowed by IP numbers and each IP can vote only 3 times. There's no way to vote twice using the same internet IP and we are all sure that each vote came from a different person (or at least, from a different internet conexion).

ABOUT THIS MONTH CHALLENGE: I enabled the blue button and tried to link the addresses you left on the comments, but I can't. For each link, they ask for your name AND an e-mail...That's why I deeply apologize for this mess and kindly ask you to go back to the post and add your links.

Sorry for the mess and thanks for listening!
If you need anything, just write to me!
Kisses,
Vanessa

Hi beautiful crafters around the world!!

It's time to have a Creative Team Call in order to keep the posts full of inspiration and beautiful works! There are some positions available and below are the list of requirement:
  1. You will need to create something once a month for the challenge.The challenge is the 15th of every month and your creation may be required by the 10th of every month. Please, have this in mind when applying!
  2. You will have access to our DT blog where you will post your creations and where all DT information is posted. The themes will be avaiable in advanced, so you will have plenty of time to organize crafts and pictures.
  3. You will need to comment on the entries, which is 1 in 10 entries, you will be given a number.We have done it this way as life can be quite hectic, making it hard to comment..........we sometimes get 200 plus entries.
  4. Be able to create with digi images, as we do occasionally get sponsored by digi companies.
  5. Remember this is a challenge blog, so there are no DT packs given for doing this (sometimes sponsors give us images to work with). We all do this for the love of it and to give you all some fun challenges to follow.
  6. You will start your DT duties on August 15th (remember you will have by the 10th to upload the picture of your work!).
Well, I think that is it! If you have any questions, e-mail me at any time!

All you need to do is make a lovely craft (remember anything & everything goes!) and enter your name into the linky below, so we can stop by and have a look at your work. This DT call will close on July 15th and the new DT will be announced sometime over that week.
Kisses, kisses,
