The Pink Elephant Challenge #37

Good Day to all you Pink Elephant Lovers!!!
We have some news to go along with our challenge this week.

First of all, we must report that our talented Carol, recently signed on as a demonstrator for a well known direct sales stamp company. She is having great success with her workshops and clubs, however their new policy has now touched her in England therefore she has had to make the sad decision to step down from TPE. All of us at TPE wish her continued success and best of luck!!! We appreciate all she brought to our group and look forward to peeking in on her from time to time!!! Thanks and Pink Hugs Carol!!!

On a happier note, we are very excited to welcome aboard our newest Design Team members,

Betty Roberts of The Scrap Happy Witch

I am a mother or three, and married to my best friend! I love crafting, creating art, and getting my hands dirty with paints, glue, stickles, inks, and any crafting medium you can think of. I often forget my dirty little fingers and tend to smudge my face, but I hear it's part of my charm. Love Halloween, I think about it year round. I adore my kids, of course everyone does, but I just love being a mommy. I bring it up because as a young person I thought "I never want kids"! I was wrong, now I want one more! My future plans include my own scrapbook and stamp lines, an online store and physical store. I did own a Scrapbook store before the birth of my third child last year, but I decided I was needed at home for a while. So, watch out internet here I come! In the meantime I am still very busy with the kids, crafting, and hosting and putting together Scrapbook and Rubber stamp retreats! It just combines my love for crafting and entertaining! I love helping others too, so if there is ever a project of mine you liked, or anything I can help you with please don't hesitate to ask! I am very excited and honored to have been asked by Lori to join the DT! It was just such great news for me and I look forward to seeing everyone's work and meeting all the DT! Thank you all for reading about me! See you at The Pink Elephant!



Hannah Boyd of Hannah Bug

Hi! My name is Hannah. I am almost 13. I have 3 little brothers named Landon, McCoy and Jussie and 1 little sister named Ella. I am a christian. I love painting, drawing, making cards, taking pictures, actually all types of art. I am homeschooled, so as soon as I get all my school work done I am free to create whatever I want!! My Mom is Lori Boyd. I was so happy when she and Ms. Robin said I could be on their fun Design Team. I was happy being a guest designer and joining in the challenges sometimes, so when they said I could be on the DT, I was VERY VERY happy!! Maybe some of the younger Pink Elephant lovers out there will find it fun to join us each week!! Thank you very much Mommy and Ms. Robin for believing in me and trusting enough to give me a chance!!!

~Little Pink Hugs~

Please join all of us here at The Pink Elephant in welcoming these two very talented girls!!

One more thing and I promise to get on to the challenge.
Robin has created some of the cutest ever Halloween Digi Stamps...AND it gets better...she has offered them up on her blog for FREE!!! So, hop over, follow the directions and grab you some!!! They are adorable!!!

Now as for our challenge this you saw above it is a sketch challenge. It happens to be the very first sketch I have ever designed. As I told our design team..."I don't know nothin' 'bout no sketches"!! I handrew it and then our wonderful Frances, turned it into what you see now. She "Robinized" it with Photoshop!! She did a great job!! Thanks so much Frances!!

Here it is...I hope you all enjoy!!
