It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and a Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list


This week’s challenge #FF0068 is World Space Week from October 4 - 10. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at and I’d be happy to help you! 

For today's challenge, I selected stars, metallic, stencil, purple and blue from this week’s Inspo List.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create.
