March Anything Goes Challenge #61


Welcome to our March challenge.

The theme at Crafts Galore Encore is always 
Anything Goes.

Thank you for all your fabulous entries last month! It was a delight to see everyone's projects and, as usual, the DT struggled to select just one favourite each!

Check here and, if you are a winner and/or a DT Favourite, please collect a badge from the side bar to proudly display on your blog. 

Now onto this month's challenge:
This month we are sponsored by the wonderful Jodie from Bugaboo Stamps. Hop on over to the store to see the wonderful array of digital images she stocks.


Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was seven years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies everyweek!  

Thanks to Bugaboo for providing images for the DT and for offering a generous prize of a $12 gift code to our challenge winner.

We hope you can find some crafty time to enter our challenge this month. We're look forward to seeing your anything goes projects! 
Enjoy the following inspiration from the DT.

Monica Collins # 23 -Nonsolocard The penguin tree is so cute and beautifully colored. I love the watercolor background - it makes a great scene but is not overpowering.

Andrѐe Crowe #120 - Deonna G  - A delightful set of festive decorations. Lovely gingerbread house designs and cheerful gingerbread people. Super sparkle, fabulous details and gorgeous lace.
