Week #13 Weekly Challenge!

Welcome to our Week #13 Weekly Challenge! The inspiration for this week's challenge comes from a bonus April Sneak Peek Layout by Barista, Brenda Carpenter. Your challenge this week is to create a layout with a "pieced quilt" border. Follow Brenda's example and use some of your favorite patterned paper pieces to create a border that has an old-fashioned quilted feel to it. Now, Brenda just happened to have some gorgeous "pre-pieced" paper from April's upcoming Flavors of the Month Kit, so she didn't have to do a lot of piecing, but you can get the same look by gathering together some coordinated patterned paper scraps and overlapping them on the edges of your layout. Easy-peasy-piecing.

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE: Create a layout with a "pieced quilt" border. Upload your layout here --->>> WEEK #13 CHALLENGE FOLDER. All layouts must be uploaded to the Week #13 Challenge Folder by 9:00 a.m. CST on Monday, April 5th, to be eligible for the prize.

THE PRIZE: This week we've got a fun prize package from the American Crafts Blue Skies line. Nothing helps usher in springtime better than these great spring-themed scrapbooking goodies - complete with (2) sets of coordinating Thickers!

CHALLENGE RULES:There are only 2 rules if you want to enter a weekly challenge:
1.) Your submission has to be a new layout created for this challenge. :) You're on your honor here, but the idea of a Weekly Challenge is to finish new layouts and not simply upload old layouts. :) (Your actual layouts can be done in any size - 12x12, 8.5x11, 8x8... whichever size you scrapbook in!
2.) Please only submit one time for each weekly challenge! (You will need to be registered on our message board to upload your layout to the Challenge Folder gallery. Registration just requires that we confirm your e-mail address so we know you're not a spammer. :)
