Sweet Saturday Challenge 2

Happy Saturday!

I hope your weekend is starting out fabulous! Looking for something to do this weekend? Why not play along with our challenge :)

So let me first thank you all for being so patient with us. We try to inspire you all in so many different ways sometimes it is difficult to figure out how to get it all to you without overwhelming you! Originally the game plan was to have a Thursday Challenge. However, we really felt like the post was so long and maybe just a bit too much. Enter Saturday to save us! From here on out the challenge will start on Saturday and end on Thursday at midnight.  We will also be announcing the winners with the new challenge.

Alright now let's get to this week's challenge!

Inspired by an Album Cover

If you remember from the first week I said we would be trying out all kinds of different challenges and this is one of them :) Ready for the inspiration parade?! I am!

Nicole using You Light Up My Life Digi

Misty using You Light Up My Life Digi

Aren't these girls just amazing?! I love how differently each of us was inspired. Now I can't wait to see how you'll be inspired!

Interested in another free digital stamp to play along with? Nicole drew up this uber-adorable image for you to get inky with, so fun! Please be respectful of Nicole's design and use this stamp to join in the challenge. Also please review the Terms and Conditions.

The Rules
1. Create a new project using the Album cover as inspiration (edited 09/09/2012 as I cut and pasted the previous rules and forgot to update it :( My bad!)
2. You DO NOT have to use Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps to play along (although we would sure love to see 'em if you've got 'em!)
3. Upload your new project into our Flickr group and tag it with SSSweektwo. 
4. You can enter the challenge a total of 3 times. Each entry must be a new project. 
5. You can combine your entry with up to 3 other challenges. 
6. Submit your project by Midnight Eastern Standard Time on Thursday September 13th. *Changed it to a two-weeker. You now have until midnight on Friday September 21st*

The Prizes
One random winner will be chosen to receive one in stock stamp set (in varying sizes). If you are an international winner you will have to pay shipping costs.
Every week we will select a Top 4 to feature. At the end of the month we will put together the Top 16 and giveaway a spot as a guest designer here on the blog!
