Challenge Winners PP300

As we close our 300th challenge, we wanted to thank all of you for playing along.  The cards in the gallery were amazing this week and we want to thank all of you that took the time to leave us a message congratulating us.   We really appreciated each and every one of them.   The reason we have made it to 300 challenges is because of our wonderful Players.

Don't forget to pop back again later today as we will be announcing the winners of our Celebratory Challenge blog candy winners!  It might be YOU!

Before we get to my choice for Headliner, lets see what caught the eye of the design team:




And now, for our Headliner:

I immediately fell in love with Bobby's Chinese lantern card.  The bright colors of the lanterns with the matching confeti of splatters/speckles is so festive.  I love that she stopped the splatters just above the sentiment.  A card that is CAS perfection - yet so full of interest and texture.  Gorgeous.  Congratulations on being my Headliner for our 300th birthday challenge!


Be sure to come back tomorrow for a fantastic sketch challenge from Joanne!  You won't want to miss it!

Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.

PP300 - A CAS Celebration from Jaydee

Hi Everyone.   Welcome to a VERY special Paper Players Challenge this week.   Today we celebrate our 300th challenge.  This is such a huge occasion for us and we are thrilled to one of our original Players back with us this week.   We have all of you to thank for helping us to reach this milestone.  Without your participation and support we would never have made it to 300 challenges.


Now on to this week's challenge... It's a Clean and Simple theme challenge from Jaydee: Celebration! 

To celebrate this occasion we have blog candy to give away, and lots of it! The team has assembled not one, not two, but ten grab bags full of stamping goodness! To be eligible to win one, all you need to do is play along with our challenge this week. You can play as many times as you like, but each needs to be a new project (no back linking, please) and see The Paper Players blog for our other challenge rules. Winners will be selected from all PP300 challenge participants using Random.org and will be posted on Saturday, June 25.




Our Players have some fabulous creations to celebrate this occasion - and to provide you with some inspiration!

PP298 Challenge Winners

Hi everyone! I had a great time visiting your blogs this week and seeing what you created for my theme challenge for Father's Day!  So many creative ideas!!!  I know we say this every week - but it's true.  You really do make it hard for us to choose our winners and this week was no exception.  

Before we get to my choice for Headliner, lets see what caught the eye of the design team:




And now, for our Headliner:




When I spotted Julie's card, I laughed out loud!  This reminds me of my own family growing up.  (Two girls and a boy)  Now, my son has the same family dynamics.  The enthusiasm for their dad that shows on their faces, says it all!  Julie's coloring is fabulous!  Congratulations on being my headliner this week!
