More Fiskateer Online Crop Challenges

Here's the rest of the challenges from this weekends Fiskateer Online Crop and my take on them.

Mini Online Crop Challenge #8
Draw inspiration from the cover of any magazine and interpret it your way. Post a link here to both the cover and your interpretation.

This is another challenge that I didn’t have time to complete.

Online Challenge...w/RAK #9
Since the northeast has power from Ice Storm (#1)....and are digging out from 10-12 inches of snow (#2)....AND we are expecting another 5-8 inches of NEW snow tomorrow.....(#3)'s my challenge....

Create a LAYOUT ....using...SNOW as your theme !...You gals in nice warm places...get creative !!....Your title must have SNOW in it !!!

For this challenge I created a layout of my adorable Great niece hunting Easter eggs in the snow. I used the Heidi Grace Frost Blvd papers, the Fiskars “A Total Flake” Squeeze Punch and my new Martha Stewart Snowflake Border Punch.

Have you seen the beautiful sketch of the month that Fiskars Crafts has listed for us to work with? Unless there is a new date I believe this one is due on December 27 This one needs to be uploaded to the Fiskars Crafts site.

Another challenge that I didn't have time to complete but hope to do it before the December 27th deadline.

Have you seen the card sketch of the month put out by Fiskars for us to work with? This one is super fun! Unless there is something I have not heard before these are due by December 27th to the Fiskars Crafts site.

Another challenge that I didn't have time to complete but hope to do it before the December 27th deadline.

Thanks to Fiskars and this awesome message board we have become the best community online, I think. In honor of Fiskars and their generosity to us as a group of extremely diverse people I challenge you to turn the gallery orange by making Fiskars an orange Christmas card.

I didn't have time to do this challenge either although it definately would be a fun one.

This challenge is not to create a lo or card, or any other type of project. This challenge is to journal for us on this thread something special that has happened to you since becoming a Fiskateer.

This is what I said on the challenge post...Living in Ontario, Canada doesn’t allow me to attend the Fiskateer events or meet any Fiskateers in person but I have met some wonderful Fiskateers Online. I have had the opportunity to be one of May’s Secret Agents and have done a few missions for her as well as had the opportunity to do a card for the Fiskars Craft site. By participating as a “Secret Agent” and in all of the online crops, I’ve been challenged more than once to “think outside of the box”. I feel that by being actively involved on the Fiskateers site that I have really grown as a scrapbooker. I have also been fortunate enough to win some awesome RAKs. Thanks Fiskars & Fiskateers.

This challenge is to share your favorite quote that can be used on scrapbooking project, but be careful...if someone already uses the one you were thinking of then you have to come up with another one!!!

This is a favorite quote of mine that I've just recently found..."Fairytales are more than true - not because they tell us that dragons exist but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten"

Last one! If you made it to this point then you have been very busy Fiskateers! This is the final challenge of the day, unless some others come out and challenge us further...

Everyone has filled the gallery this weekend and filled it well! Take time to go back and appreciate what your friends have done. Go to the individual threads for the challenges and leave some luv for those who have participated. So often great projects get overlooked in the rush of the day. This will be a nice way to wish everyone a wonderful holiday week ahead!

This one was easy as there were so many awesome layouts and cards posted to the gallery this weekend...many from those participating in the online crop.

Then Rebecca popped in with a challenge of her's her challenge

Online Crop Challenge-Time Flies!
I can't believe I'm going to admit this, but I STILL have baby pictures of my kids left to scrap! Where does the time go? For this challenge, dig out an old baby photo and scrap it! It can be a photo of you, your kids, your mom or other relative, as long as it's a baby pic! The only rules are it has to be a NEW layout, and it has to be completed by 12 pm PST tonite.

Well, Rebecca your aren't the only one with baby pictures to scrap. My son is almost 23 and since I just discovered scrapping about 5 years ago. I also quit scrapping for 2 of those years & only made cards. It wasn't until April of 2007 when I discovered the Fiskateer site that I actually got back into scrapbooking again. Needless to say, I have lots of baby pictures of DS to scrap. Here's my take on the challenge. I used Heidi Grace baby paper, Martha Stewart Lace border punch, 3 Gypsies stamps & SU stamps.

This definately turned out to be a very productive weekend for me as far as scrapping goes. I managed to complete 10 challenges on Sunday which really surprised me. Normally I only scrap in the morning but yesterday I went back upstairs to my scraproom after supper to finish off some of the challenges that I hadn't yet been able to do.

Have a great day! Thanks for looking.
