Laura's Blog Challenge



Good morning! The thing that I most love about SCS is the challenges. I played my first challenge (use up some scrap paper) the day after I first found Splitcoast. If you look around over at SCS, you can find many challenges to play in everyday, but there isn't any time limit and you don't get a chance to win a prize! I really do have fun giving away fun things. So here we go, the first challenge I am going to issue is to alter an Altoid Tin. Sales of gift cards hit an all time high this holiday season! An altered tin is a really fun way to give a gift card! I used a tin that had chocolate truffles in it (of course I ate those). The paper was cut to size and corner rounded. The ribbon was attached with red double sided tape.

The deadline for leaving a post here with a link to your blog or to your SCS gallery is Sunday, January 13. This will not be a random drawing (at least this week). I will choose the winner based on creativity and design! I do welcome feedback about what you like (especially if you are not going to enter a tin) Please use key word LC1 when uploading to SCS. The winner will receive the goodies shown in the photo! Good luck and have fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
