Here's how it will work...

Our first challenge of 2011 will be posted right here on Friday, March 4th at the stroke of midnight! After that, a new challenge will be posted EVERY Friday through November 18.

Here's how things will work this year:
  • Create a NEW project according to our challenge, post on your blog and link back to the challenge post at CSAYL.
  • Add your entry to the CSAYL challenge post with a direct link to your project post.
  • Stop by at least 2 other challenge entries and leave them some love.

The challenges will close on Thursdays at midnight (PST).

On Thursday afternoon, I will post my TOP TEN favorite entries and announce the winner! (on some weeks, we will have more than one winner!)

And then on Friday, we'll start it all over again!

I'm really excited about this year and can't wait to see what you all do. See you back here in 4 days!

Our Fabulous Sponsors for 2011!

Hi there stampers!
Thanks for checking in today!

A good challenge is always fun, but sponsors make it even more fun, right? I love using images from my favorite companies and being introduced to new ones! So without further adieu, here are some of the generous sponsors that I've lined up for 2011!!

{Just click on the pictures to check out their shops}

A big thank you to the companies that we'll be working with this year! Thanks so much for sponsoring our challenges and spoiling our winners! I've got a few more sponsorships in the works, so I'll be sure to keep all of you updated.

Our challenges start up in just three short weeks!
I've got lots of fun ideas jotted down, but I'd also like to know what your thoughts are. What kind of challenges would you like to see? Got any fun ideas? Leave a comment on this post and if we use your idea, you can be a guest designer!
