TTT Winner and November Challenge

Happy Thursday!
Just a reminder that our challenges are now on a MONTHLY basis.  Each challenge here at Shelly's Images will begin on the first Thursday of the month and run through the end of the month.  That gives everyone a full month to play along!  Be sure to check out the sidebar for a complete list of upcoming challenges, tutorials, and special events.
AND, the DT will typically be working with a Shelly's Images digi stamp of their choice for each challenge.  That means you get to see lots of different digi stamps each month.  

So...let the fun begin!  To start off we want to announce the winner of our 
 October ... Fall Photo Inspiration Challenge.  

Our "Beary" Favorite project is Shell Klieber from 'Shell's Card Haven.    Shell, we loved this beautiful card.  It beautifully captures all the wonderful and beautiful colors of the season.     Shell, I will be emailing you very soon with your $6 gift voucher.  Please also be sure to grab your "Beary" Favorite badge here.

Ready for a new challenge?!!?!!  We sure hope so!

Wipe Off Planner Tutorial

I hope you enjoy this tutorial showing how I made my Weekly Planner.
There are lots of fun techniques and tips in this video, so even if you don't plan to make a Wipe Off Planner I hope you will watch the video and maybe learn a few little tricks.

If you have trouble clicking the video above you can view the video at this link.
As I mentioned in my video I want to be sure to give special recognition to Vivian from Contadina K.  I can't thank her enough for her inspiration and amazing videos.  The masking tape technique I use in this video is inspired by some of her projects.
