Challenge #183 - Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: American Beauty- Use A Rose

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Before we get into the challenge, we have an important announcement:
EFFECTIVE AUGUST 7, 2016, 
613 Avenue Create will become 
A MONTHLY CHALLENGE
Our philosophy has always been:  Crafting should be fun for team participants.  Many of our designers are on multiple teams and we want to make sure that they have time to take classes, explore DT opportunities and just create for fun.  
We want our designers to stay with us and have the flexibility to explore other avenues.  Switching to a monthly format serves us all well!

 We encourage you to continue to submit projects weekly.  The only change is to ask that you limit your entries to no more than 6 (six) entries per month.

    1. Hey, Donna! Kathi was planning on sending you an e-mail notification with the details. We will continue to post on Sunday. The challenge will post the first Sunday of each month. We are asking participants to limit their entries to no more than six (6) entries in one month. We will Showcase our Sponsors for the entire month and award all prizes at the end of the month.

      We will send a recap before we switch! Thanks for all you do to help promote the challenges. We know time time you volunteer helps keep us all!

  7. lovely DT work as always!! Shouldn't the new format be 12 entries a month--three each week--rather than six? That would keep the challenge from really changing!!

  8. Hi ladies! First let me say "thanks so much" for the Top 5 honor!! What a wonderful surprise to see that today! Second, lovely creations from all of you - as usual! And Last I applaud you for going to a monthly format and taking care of your lovely designers! Being on a couple DTs myself I know how much work that is sometimes (even if it is also fun). Thanks for all the lovely work you do and for the inspiration to all of us.

  10. Thank you for the challenge and the nice DT work. I'm also on a DT and we took on more designers so that we could have 2 teams. That way one team posted for week one and one team posted for week 2. That way we still had weekly challenges but one team always had a week off. I for one, will miss your challenges but understand. Thank you for all the hard work that y'all do.

    1. Thanks, Bunny! Remember, you can still submit your projects weekly so we hope you will continue to honor us with your work. We actually do have two teams and 22 designers, but we are more committed to the quality of the projects we produce rather than quantity. We appreciate your support!
