#82: Happy Birthday

Hi!  Kristy here, with The Paper Girl's 82nd Challenge: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  Today is my hubby's birthday (Happy Birthday Honey!), so I thought it would be fun to make this challenge a birthday challenge.  Show us your favorite birthday card, layout, banner, or any other birthday project.  As an added bonus, you have until 11:59pm (MDT) July 4 to enter your projects - which is an extra week!  Our next challenge will be live July 6th.  

I'd like to welcome back our guest designer for the month of June, Tenia Nelson!

Hello all, my name is Tenia Nelson and I am a 30-something wife, momma, doggie momma, jazz pianist, music teacher, soccer player and paper crafter that lives in the 5280 (Denver, CO)! I am married to a wonderful guy named Tim, I am momma to my awesome son Thelonious (Theo) and I have two wonderful doggie "kids" Miles and Brillo. I love me some paper, inks, stamps and embellishments...and just LURVE to create!!!

#81 - Father's Day/Masculine

Hey folks, Amber here with your newest challenge. It's June already and that means Father's Day is almost here! So for our challenge we're focusing on men and making Father's Day or any masculine project.

 My son is a huge Dr. Who fan so I made him a doctor-inspired birthday card and a TARDIS journal just live River Song carries. Check out my blog post for more details.


Before I show you the rest of the DT creations I want to announce that we have brought back our guest designer program. Our guest for the month of June is none other than the super fabulous Tenia Nelson!

#80 - It's Party Time!


It’s Party Time!  with Karrie.  
Victoria Day weekend or May 2-4 as we call it (named for a case of 24 beer) has traditionally been the kick-off of the summer season here in the North for as long as I remember.  Lots of people go open up their trailers, take their first camping or fishing trip of the year. It’s always been a weekend of big parties and bonfires and celebration in general.
So in honour of May 2-4 I would like to see any creation you make showing off any long weekend or spring/summer traditions you may have, any reunions or parties you celebrate! 

My scrap page shows the tradition of my hubby taking his boys camping and fishing at their favourite spot even further up north for the weekend. Some years the boat broke through the ice, some years it was 30°!  It’s a tradition they continue to this day.
Here is how the rest of the DT was inspired.





Your turn! Upload your entries using the inlinkz tool below by May 30 and you could win my sweet little prize package.
Congratulations to : #2 karenladd the  winner of our challenge #79 – Critters!   Please send an e-mail with your shipping info to papergirlschallengeblog@gmail.com to claim your prize within two weeks.

Challenge #78 - April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hello everyone! It's Brittany with my very first challenge for the Paper Girls Challenge Blog!

Every time I think about Spring, I can't help but think of rain...I am from the Northwest, anyway.  I love the smell after a fresh rain, and even more the sights and smells of all the new blooming flowers that rain helps bring. So I want to see what inspires you when you think about rain...and even better, the quote "April Showers Bring May Flowers". Here is the little card I put together thinking of all the rain, AND sunshine, mixed with all the new blooms in my yard right now. 


And now, here is what our fabulous design team came up with! I can't wait to see what your interpretation of this challenge will be!





And now...the winner of Challenge #77 - Pastel Eggstravaganza:
