CASE Study Challenge #130

We've got to say farewell and a big THANK YOU this week, to another fantastic Muse of ours, Teri Anderson! We hope that you had lots of fun CASE'ing her work and that you will join us once again, for a final challenge and a terrific portion of inspiration. Here it is!


 -------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's what our fabulous Design Team came up with:

Teri Anderson - January Muse



Sylvia Blum - February Guest Designer



Christina MacLaren



Clare Buswell



Debby Hughes



Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)



Jean Martin

Maureen Plut



Teneale Williams


-------------------------------------------------------------------

Now all you have to do is play with us!
Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC130), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose the authors of four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project.
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!
