Hear ye, Hear ye, Read all about it...



EDITED: This time to enter this challenge has expired! Thank you to everyone who participated!! Your work is amazing! The winner of the justjohanna Limited Edition Earth Day stamp will be announced tomorrow! Everyone who participated in the challenge will be entered into the grand prize drawing for lots and lots of free justjohanna stamps!! Stay tuned...

It's a justjohanna Earth Day challenge using newspaper! Who doesn't end up with more newspaper than you know what to do with...it can put into your recycling bin or you can use it on your paper crafting creations! I was in love with this look as soon as I cut out my first scalloped circle from part of my Sunday paper! I even used letters from the paper as my sentiment and tiny strips act as ribbons on the top of my card...just pull those "ribbons" gently!


My challenge - Create a card, ATC, scrapbook page, whatever using newspaper! Post a comment on my blog with a link back to your blog or gallery. If you don't have a gallery, please feel free to post on the justjohanna forum, just click on the justjohanna forum link on the right hand side of my blog and post under the Earth Day thread.


You'll have 24 hours to enter the challenge (4/20 at 9:00 am EST) and then I'll draw one winner from all of the newspaper challenge participants and one of you will win a Limited Edition Earth Day stamp from justjohanna. All of you will be entered into a drawing for one of the following prizes; $250 justjohanna shopping spree, a $50 shopping spree, 25% discount coupon.


Enjoy!!
