Scribbles Designs 4th Birthday Bonanza Challenge & Blog Hop

Scribbles Designs is celebrating its 4th birthday this month! 
 On January 15, 2013, we had our very first challenge.
Four years later we're still going strong.
In fact we've grown!

Our team is larger and we've added new features including
Bi-Weekly GDT Showcases and Freebie Fridays
We also sponsor a number of other Challenge Blogs each year!

The store has grown to sell over 660+ Scribbles Designs images 
plus there are over 140 FREEBIES!
The store now also sells Scribble Doodle Designs
(a collaborative effort between Sandy S. & Lisa D.)
and is home to selling designs by D├ęcosse's Dynamite Doodles as well!

We've accomplished a lot in four years
and we plan on accomplishing a lot more!!!

Right now we're kicking off our celebration with a combined 
Challenge AND Blog Hop!

It all starts now!!!

First things first, here are the details of our month long challenge...

    Welcome New Design Team Members!

    Hey there folks. I'm pleased to announce that we have two new people joining our team full time. You'll be seeing projects from both of them starting on Sunday so now is a good time to get to know them a bit better.
    My name is AJ and I'm excited to be part of the talented DT at Scribbles Designs.  I've been papercrafting for almost 18 years now.  I started with scrapbooking, but changed to cardmaking a few years ago.  I love working with digital images, it's so easy to print them and start coloring, which is my favorite part!  I live in South Carolina with my husband and son.  We have 2 rescue dogs that we love and adore.  My perfect day is coloring images, with a hot mug of tea, listening to podcasts or radio.

    You can visit AJ at her personal blog
    Hi, I'm Sherry, I live in Washington USA. I am happily married to my best friend. I have three children and four grandchildren. I have enjoyed all types of arts and crafts ever since I can remember. I enjoy creating things with paper and have found that I love creating handmade cards. I am so very excited to be a part of the DT for Scribbles Designs!

    You can visit Sherry at her personal blog

    Please join me in welcoming both AJ and Sherry to our team! If you have a chance, why not pop over and say hi! You can find their personal blogs either by clicking on their name header or their blog address.

    Before You Go...

    Scribbles Designs turns four years old on Sunday and we're having a special blog hop to celebrate. I hope that you'll join us again at that time. If you'd like to help us spread the word, please grab the badge below (or the smaller one from the sidebar) and add it your own sidebar linking it back to the Scribbles Designs Blog.  We have lots of awesome prizes planned so mark your calendars and join us again on January 15th!

    Challenge #48 Midway: Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New

    Hello and welcome to the midway point for
    Scribbles Designs Challenge #48
    Ring out the Old, Ring in the New

    Before we get on with today's midway, from all of us here at Scribbles Designs, we wish you a very Happy New Year. May this year be a prosperous and healthy one for you all!!!

    Now back to our midway. Here is a refresher of what the theme is all about:

    It has been quite a year! Here on the challenge blog we've said goodbye to some DT Members and welcomed in new ones. Whatever our individual pathways in life, we have all probably experienced ups and downs, shared in good memories and sad ones, and thought about the changes that we'd like to make in the coming year ahead. As we get ready to say goodbye to one year and usher in a new, we thought that this challenge would be a good time to reflect that same kind of thinking in our projects. There is a great poem by Alfred Tennyson that says,
    “Ring out the old, ring in the new,
    Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
    The year is going, let him go;
    Ring out the false, ring in the true.”

    There are several key words in this poem that can help provide a starting point for your creation: ring, old, new, happy, bells, snow, year, false, true. How you interpret them is up to you. For example, you might choose to use something old or something new in your project; or be literal and include bells or snow; maybe you'll focus on the word happy and take your creation in that direction; or maybe you will design a card that reflects something new like new year's or a new baby, a new home, etc. We look forward to seeing your creative take on this particular theme. Just be sure to let us know the key words you went with from the poem and how it links to the theme. It is time to bid adieu to 2016 and welcome the possibilities in store for 2017!

    There are still two weeks left in the challenge and we hope that you will be able to join us here on our spot in blog-land. We have had just four entries so far this month so we'd really love to see some more of you join in!

    Our incredibly talented women are back to showcase their amazing creative work featuring projects related to our Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New theme. We hope that you will enjoy the Scribbles Designs images and the creative direction that ensues.

    Any questions about the challenge? Please read our Challenge Rules located in the right sidebar.
