Yay, I made the design team! I am so thrilled to be joining the  fabulous team at Off the Rails Scrapbooking.

Our challenges are posted on the First of each month and will run the entire month.


Guidelines of the challenge

You can create any sort of project that sparks your imagination, so long as it fits into the challenge theme. It must be a new creation, (please no back linking).


Please make it as easy as possible for our Designers to leave comments on your work, keep in mind that on flickr and "private" blogger posts we can not leave feedback, therefore we can not except your entry. 

You can enter our challenges twice as long as you have created something different for each project. eg a card and layout or a layout or digital layout.

When linking your projection to our blog please make sure that it is a direct link to the project and not just your blog in general and that you 
use your name and where you are from eg Sam - USA. This makes it easier when the Design Team come for a visit.
We do ask that you mention our challenge in your blog post and include a link to Off The Rails Scrapbooking. You can enter your creation into as many other challenges as you like.
