If you are joining along this week, here are the details concerning the Make It Monday Challenge.

–A new Make It Monday Challenge & video will go up every Monday morning at 9am EST.

–Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge.  Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and feature the frosted images technique.

–Post your project on your blog, in your gallery or on any other photo-hosting site (such as photobucket or flickr).

-Add your project to our —>InLinkz List HERE<—

–You will have until 7am, Monday, September 26th, to add your link to the list to be eligible to win.  And you can enter as many times as you like.

–We will be tweeting and posting on our Facebook page every night (between 5-9pm EST) highlighting a Featured Project.  These tweets/Facebook postings will just be a shout-out regarding projects that caught our eye.  The tweets/Facebook postings no longer have any special merit regarding the actual contest.

    Yes, I agree this card technique is really cool! But I have NO speakers so I can’t HEAR the type of ink. Could you post whether or not it is DYE or PIGMENT or does it matter? Thanks

    Hi. These are lovely cards. I wanted to copy the Thank You card and post it on my Facebook page. Yesterday was my birthday and I have so many folks to thank. I thought this image would be appropriate. I hope that’s okay. Please advise if its not and I’ll take it down. In kindness, *karendianne.
