Challenge 49 - Bright White

Hi Mo fans.. welcome to a new week at Mo's!

A bit of team news... Sandy has stepped down from the team to allow time for other projects and commitments. Sandy was instrumental in getting this team off the ground when Mo's challenges began almost a year ago. Thank you, Sandy, for all of your hard work, dedication and creativity!

Before we get to the details of this week's challenge, let's see who is our lucky winner this week... 

and that lucky person is Jo Ham. Congratulations to you, Jo. Just email Mo to arrange for your free image and enjoy your selection.

Paola continues as this month's hostess and she has challenged us to use a 'white on white' theme. The image can be colored, but the card and embellishments should be predominately white. Here's what Paola, our guest designer, Jackie, and the rest of the design team have created as inspiration.

Jackie - September Guest Designer

We hope you will join us. You might be the lucky winner of an image from Mo's Digital Pencil. Just create your card or 3-D paper project using this week's theme of white on white, post to your blog or online gallery, then link back here, using Mr. Linky.

Challenge 47 - Shades of Brown - Age it, Antique it

Hello Mo friends, and welcome to our newest challenge. Lots in store today, but let's get to the winner of a digital image randomly chosen from the entries this past week.

Number 23 is.....Linda B. Congratulations, Linda!  Just email Mo to arrange for your free image. Enjoy your prize and thanks for playing along with us in the challenge.

Our newest team member, Paola,  is our hostess this month... and we'd like to introduce her to all of you.

Hi there, my name is Paola Levi. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa, with my husband and three of our four children. Our eldest son is getting married soon and we have three little children under the age of 7. I started paper crafting about eight years ago while recovering from cancer and trying to fall pregnant with our litle girl who is now seven.

Initially it was scrapbooking, and my love of paper crafting has just kinda morphed itself from that. I now spend all my free time making cards and am absolutely loving the transition.

I am totally stoked to have been chosen as part of Mo's challenge team as it has been a dream of mine since I started blogging just over a year ago. I hope you will enjoy the challenge that I have set out for you this month and I look forward to seeing all the different interpretations. I'm the type of girl that if less is more, more is BETTAH! LOL.

There an old expression, Paola.... that "scrapbooking is like a gate-way drug to card-making" and you proved it right. It's a pleasure to have you on the team, Paola.

This week, Paola has set our challenge with an aged, antiqued look. Here's what hostess Paola, Jackie, our guest designer for this month, and the design team have created for this challenge.

Jackie - This month's Guest Designer





We hope you will join us in our challenge this week. All you have to do is create a card or project with this week's theme (using an image from Mo's Digital Pencil) and post back here at Mr. Linky. You can link up your blog post or from your on-line gallery at PCP, SCS, SNR, etc. Full rules are listed to the right.

We are looking forward to seeing all of your lovely creations. Have a fantastic week!
