Vintage Children at Sugar Creek Hollow

It's time for Sugar Creek Hollow's Saturday challenge.  This week we want you to show us your creativity with "vintage children".  I have used an image from Create With TLC called "Too Many Numbers".  I can remember being in a "daze" while doing math in school!
School Daze
Sugar Creek Hollow is all about vintage creations.  We would love to have you join our challenge this week and show us your vintage style!  

My design paper this week is from Cosmo Cricket's "Odds & Ends" mini deck.  I added a  Tim Holtz "ticket" and added my sentiment with my Xyron design runner.  The "A,B,C's" were made with my newest "toy", a Cricut Expression.  I texturized my panel and I've added Ranger distress ink "Old Paper" to my papers.

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all your support and encouragement!

Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday Challenge

This week our Sensational Saturday challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow is to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project featuring SUNFLOWERS in the main image.  Here is my vintage card using an image from "Digital Two For Tuesday".  My sentiment is from Create With TLC.
I'm so excited to announce that Linda Coughlin is our fabulous sponsor for this week's challenge!!!  I am such a huge fan and always follow her blog.  She is one of the most amazingly talented vintage designers I've ever met!



Linda Coughlin, a.k.a The Funkie Junkie, loves using unusual frilly and funky items in her crafting. She has searched out or handmade the many delightful embellishments offered for sale in her Etsy boutique. Hand touched and personal attention to each and every order are hallmarks of her boutique. Linda warmly invites you to stop by for a browse.


We will be choosing a random winner who will receive a $15 gift certificate for The Funkie Junkie's Etsy boutique and a winner's badge from Sugar Creek Hollow to display on her blog.  In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week (or shall we say Project of the Week) and the creator will receive a badge to display on her blog and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.


Linda is also joining us as a Guest Designer and she and the Design Team have made some fabulous Sunflower cards. To get details on their projects, just click on each Designer's name and you will be taken directly to their blog.
