View Full Version : Celebrating Easter - Ends April 30

04-03-2009, 09:33 AM
Well, hello there! I am so happy to be bringing you the Newsletter Challenge again this month! There were some fantastic layouts submitted for last month, thank you all so much for participating!! I truly enjoyed browsing all those Spring layouts!

As you know, Easter is coming!! So, the theme this month is all about Easter! I want to know what Easter means to YOU, what kind of traditions you have and how you celebrate! For me, Easter has always been a family day! A day to get dressed in your Sunday Best, go to church, have dinner with family, and, of course, stuff yourself with all the chocolate you got from the Easter Bunny!!! :D

Okay, the only rule we have for this challenge is you MUST use SAS products for your layouts (freebies are always welcome!) and post your finished layout to the Newsletter Challenge Gallery (http://stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=610). Please post a link back here in this thread so we can all leave you some love & I know who to send the PB's to!

We are giving you a little leeway with the SAS products this month, so if you have a kit from a Designer that has recently left SAS, you may still use them for the challenges! :)

And, here is your totally cute Posting Bonus made by Cathy Cher!

Have Fun! :D

Eeking in here at the end of the month! I hope previous posting bonuses are okay? I couldn't remember - but I so loved this one that I wanted to use it for something, and this was perfect. :)


If that wasn't okay, let me know and I'll redo - gotta have that kite paper! :D

04-28-2009, 06:30 AM
Oh, yes... we love it when you use the Posting Bonus'!! A lot of times people just "collect" them and they never get used (I'm so guilty of this! :p ) so we love to see them being used, and you did a fabulous job! My brother & I never wanted to pose for Easter pics either!! :D

PB has been sent! Thanks so much for joining in the challenge this month! :)

Hey ladies! I wanted to let you all know that the SAS-y Princess Contest for April has been opened!!! So, if you've done any layouts using SAS Products, get them moved into the SAS-y Princess Gallery (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/forum/../gallery/showgallery.php?cat=911), and post your links in the thread here (http://www.stoneaccentsstudioforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4909) for a chance to win a $20 coupon to the store!!! :D

You've all used SAS products for these layouts, so get them moved on over for a chance to win! And, if you have any others, move them too! Good luck everyone! :)

Here I go snicking it in on the last day :eek:
Since I was sick for Easter and missed my family I thought I would do a Memory Page about the way it was when I was a kid. :D
