Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #15
"Get Texty"!

NOTE: Please read and follow ALL the rules posted at the bottom of this post. Starting this month, entries not following our rules (including our new ones) will be deleted. If your are wondering why, please read our June 2015 challenge post. 

We are SO excited to announce our awesome August sponsor - Ellen Hutson


Ellen Hutson is offering a $25 store credit to our lucky random winner!!!!!

Our Amazing August Guest Designer is Lisa Adametz. We are thrilled to have Lisa join us this month!

"My name is Lisa (aka papergrace) and I've been creative for as long as I can remember. I've always been had my hands busy with knitting, crocheting, silk ribbon embroidering, or SOMETHING. But, it wasn't until I discovered paper crafts that I knew my life had changed. Mixed Media is where I feel most at home. I love getting inky and "messy". The lack of rules appeals to my rebel soul. But I can knock out a CAS card every now and again, too. Come visit me on my blog at papergrace.com. Thanks!"

We are thrilled to have Lisa as our Guest Designer this month. Lisa made a gorgeous project for our August "Get Texty" Challenge.
