It's Finally Friday!

**I will be making an announcement later today about the DT Call ending so please stay tuned**

Here we go! Since we've been having a DT call, I have been getting a lot of similar responses to one of the application questions: "What changes can be made to SPCC?" Everyone wants something more! A theme challenge, a sketch challenge, something else to go along with the color challenge. Always wanting more. Well your requests have been answered! Today I am introducing the Finally Friday chlallenge!

There will be no prizes. . . no winners. . . no glory. . . just some great scrapping fun and great inspiration! If you haven't already figured it out, THIS is why I asked about the gallery ideas :O) I want to have a gallery each week to showcase everyone's Finally Friday work, but that is still a work in progress.

Now, Finally Friday is going to be a mix of all different kinds of challenges -recipe challenges, sketches, color combos, themes, inspiration, techniques, etc - and the best part is you never know what the next week will bring. AND you never know who will be hosting the Finally Friday challenge each week! Some weeks it will be me, some weeks DT members, sometimes a guest designer, and sometimes I will ask YOU to host it! That's right! This is going to be wild and crazy LOL.

Do you want EVEN MORE inspiration each and every week???? Well I have more on my blog!! As you know, I am a daily craft blogger at Scrapmaster's Paradise, but you may not know that I host my own little challenges on my blog as well (I am a challenge junkie, that's how SPCC came to be! LOL). Every week, you can find the following challenges on my blog:
  • Sketch Challenges -Each Sunday I post a sketch for a one page layout
  • Use It Tuesday -Each Tuesday I dig into my stash and challenge you to USE IT
  • Cricut Wednesday -Each Wednesday I showcase a different Cricut cartridge
  • IBCC -Each Friday I do an inspiration challenge based on a project from the Stampin' UP Idea Book and Catalog
  • Stamptivity Saturday -Each Saturday I post a different challenge using Stamptivity stamps
Whew, now if that isn't enough I don't know what is! LOL Now are you ready for our very FIRST Finally Friday here at SPCC???? Here goes nothin'. . .

This week's Finally Friday Challenge is brought to you by me, because well, I didn't plan ahead very well this week LOL. Next week I hope to have someone special hosting for us.

Use the following purse box as your inspiration for your own project. You can make whatever you want to make, but draw your inspiration from here - colors, patterns, shapes, etc.

Post a DIRECT link to your finished projects below in Mr. Linky! I can't wait to see what you make. If you could also be so kind as to tell me what you think of Finally Friday's I would love to hear from you :O)

I love it! Love it! Love it! I had never tried a challenge before your hostess club crops and I'm starting to get addicted. I can't wait to get home from work today and get started. I've been thinking about the other challenges as well. Thank you, dear Samantha, for inspiring those of us who are in a rut!
