Important News for the New Year!

Hello, crafty friends!

We have some difficult news to share today. This is one of the hardest decisions we've had to make, but we have decided to put our challenge blog on 'hold' through 2021. 

As with many of you, our design team has been impacted by the pandemic in 2020 and it has taken a toll on our ability to keep up and provide you, our loyal and dear friends, the attention and inspiration that you deserve. 

We hope that as 2021 progresses our design team members will be able to gain back some balance and normalcy so we can be fully present again. Please know that we don't intend to close the blog forever since this is near and dear to our heart, but this break is what we need to care for our families, ourselves, and handle the pressures of our changing work/lives. So, this isn't a 'goodbye', but rather a 'see you soon..." notice.

For those of you who have been our random winners these last several months, we'll be in contact with you about a different prize plan since we won't have the opportunity to include you as a guest designer at this time. You should hear from someone from our team within the next week. 

Thank you ALL so much for your support all of these years. We hope that we'll see all your beautiful projects in our future challenges. 

Sending you all warm wishes for a wonderful, happy, and healthy New Year! 

Your friends from the Paper Girls Challenge Blog, 

Erica, Brittany, Karrie, Heather, Lori and Alex

You are not the only ones affected, and family and health coms before our hobbies.
Stay safe

Totally understood. This situation has been so tough for so many. I haven't been participating, but have been checking out your posts. Take care of yourselves and your families and when the timing is right, you will come back better than ever. Sending hugs!

We were looking forward to partnering up with The Paper Girls this year. Hope to see you back in 2022 and again get together for our fun challenges. Our Team at Double Trouble will surely miss you all.
