Fall Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Ch{all}enge Masters F{all} into a Ch{all}enge Blog Hop! The challenge Divas have gotten together to create some fantastic Fall themed projects for you to be inspired and enjoy!

You should have arrrived here from //

Liz's blog.

If not, then you need to start back at Tammy's Blog (Stash & Tag Diva) (

We all have a secret word that you need to collect to spell an autumn phrase and to be entered to win one of the grand prizes. All the details are on her blog and you don't want to miss out on any great prizes along the way as we all have something special that you can win!

I hope you are enjoying all the eye candy you have seen so far. My project looks so much better in real life (I swear ;0) Unfortunately, it is storming as I am trying to take photos,and you know how that goes, so I hope you like it!

It is actually really dimensional which is not showing up so well in these photos. I plan on putting it on the mantel as soon as October starts. I used Making Memories cream polka dot pp from a few years ago and JillyBean Orange polka dot pp. The haunted house photo is from Jenni Bowlin's Halloween kit (which is to die for!)

I love hunting through my stash for just the right touch of something and for this project I came up with an old Jolee's (don't judge me) witch hat with spell book, wand and broom. I busted out an old black bottlecap from Lil Davis(remember them?) and topped it with a new sticker from Studio G. A few other Making Memories halloween embellishments from their collection from a couple of years ago add to the fun along with a Pink Paislee rub on and a Jenni Bowlin sticker. Alphabet letters are Basic Grey, American Craft Thickers,and a Heidi Swapp "H" covered with black glitter. All edges have been inked and distressed!

My absolute favorite part of this project is the teeny tiny JB Halloween Bingo cards. It really is part of the packaging that I cut apart. Totally not my own idea yet brilliant!

I was inspired by the Jenni Bowlin designers especially Ranjini Malhatra and Kerry Lynn Yeary.

There a few ways to win during this blog hop:

1. You can leave a comment here (by Sunday, Sept 19th by 11pm EST)telling me your favorite part of fall. If you do this you will be in the running for a cute little RAK from me. (photo coming soon)

2. Create a fall project. Whatever kind of project you come up with(a card, a scrapbook page, or something else ) it must be fall themed. Then go to and upload it to our gallery. If you are new to Challenge Masters, you must register twice (once for the forums and once for the gallery although it can all be the same user names and password) There will also be a thread in our forums dedicated to our blog hop so make sure to post your creation there as well. A great kit could be yours by entering!

3. Visit each blog in order of the hop and write down the secret words. Details on Blog 1 (Tammy) about how to win this prize.
