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.

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.

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