MiC & QP Anniversary Celebrations

Make it Crafty is celebrating their 1-year anniversary and to commemorate this even we're having FIVE challenges over at Make it Colourful challenge blog! This post includes three samples to get you inspired plus all the details on the celebration events going on - you don't want to miss it!

Like I said there are five challenges going on starting today and they last the whole month long during the celebration. The theme for those five challenges are as follows:

1. Merge as many images as you can
2. The most creative combination of images
3. Rubber stamps only
4. Chipboard Only (no image)
5. Colour using the MiC Logo colours – blue/mustard/yellow and brown

I chose to work on three out of the five categories... #2 most creative combo, #4 chipboard only and #5 MiC Logo colors ... and pictures will be scattered sporadically through the post. The yellow and blue text is courtesy Zoe - thanks for sharing Zoe! ;D
