Challenge #60 Old Time Photos

Hi!  Welcome to the 60th challenge by The Paper Girls Challenge.  I can't believe we are at 60!!!  Thank you everyone for your support.

It is Kristy here, with the challenge for you: use an old photo.  Now I know everyone has a different definition of an "old" photo.  To some, an old photo is a picture taken back in the 1940's or 1950's. If you are chronological scrapper, doing a photo from a year ago may be old to you.  Or, do you do Project Life style scrapping, and you are catching up...those may be "old" photos to you.  I leave the "old" definition up to you, but please indicate how "old" it is on your blog post when linking.  It will be fun to see everyone's take on "old".

Here are some projects from The Paper Girls...





Erica

Jessica

Deborah

Michele


Last, but not least!!!  The winner of Challenge #59 is:
12. Deonna B

Challenge #58: Summer Lovin'


Happy Monday!  Deborah here from ScrappinTheLittleThings and its my turn to host a PGCB Challenge.  Summer is now in full swing and I keep singing summer songs.  Just to give you an idea of how “vintage” I can be - I think of “Summer Lovin’” from the musical GREASE.  Yes, we had to get the movie and watch it after spending the afternoon in the pool.  Great stuff!



So ... here’s the challenge:  Use a summer song in your title or your journaling. 



My daughter had her friends over for a pool party and they had the best time!  I just love listening to them screaming, laughing, singing and splashing.  They really do know how to have fun.





Check out what the rest of the Design Team members created:

Jessica - "Happy" by Pharrell Williams

Kristy - "School's Out for Summer" by Alice Cooper

Becci - "My Girl" by The Temptations (changed to Our Girl)

Michele - "Vacation" by The Go-Go's


Due to the July 4th holiday coming up, we are giving you an extra week to complete this challenge! Please link up your project by July 5th.


Challenge #58 prize pack:
The winner of 
Challenge #57 Rub-Ons Reinvented is:

Challenge #57 Rub-Ons Reinvented

Good morning everyone.  Cathryn here from Cat-Scrap Creations!! with another fun challenge to spark your creativity here at PGCB. 
If you are like me, you have a pile or a container some where of half used rub-ons, or ones that you just never found the right place to use.  Now is your chance to pull them out and try using them in some new and fun ways!!!
Although I have been a scrapbooker for longer than I remember.  In the past year I have come to love enjoy mixed media.  And mixed media is just one of many ways to use rub-ons. 

 I made this 3 piece canvas art.  I just love the whimsical look they have!!!
You can find step by step instructions on how I created these on my blog

Check out some more wonderful creations from our other Paper Girls!!!
