Challenge #16 Single Layer Project
Welcome to our new challenge, One Layer or Single Layer project. By that we mean no additional layers of any kind, card stock, embellishments etc. We hope you will feel inspired to play along with us. Note that you can use any company's images you like to join our challenge, but if you use any images from Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda you will get two entries into the draw to win the prize, yes that's double the chance to win.

Reminder of our new prize system
To ensure you all have a fabulous time playing in our challenges we have a new format for our new blog!
1 - 4 entries = a winner will be awarded our Challenge Badge 
5+ entries = one winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to spend at LCD/CV
10+ entries = one winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to spend at LCD/CV
you get the Challenge Badge to proudly display on your blog too!

Please be sure to read our rules so that your entry is eligible to win the prize :)
Did you know that you can play in our Challenges even if you don't have a blog!
Simply upload your project to a photo sharing site, including your own personal Facebook accounts, and set the privacy setting to "Public" and include the name of our Challenge in your photo description! You can not link to projects shared in a closed Facebook Group because the linky tool can't access it there! It's that easy so do join the fun!

Some inspiration from our Team Dream:

Leigh has used Lost Coast Designs' Manga Goth Dots and Carmen Veranda's Grunge White Swirl

Nan has used Chloe Collage and Dictionary Words from Lost Coast Designs:

Granne has used Backside Woman and Antique Text Border and Spray Webbing from Lost Coast Designs: 

Kim has used Grunge Tree and Sugar Skull with Flower from Lost Coast Designs

Nikki has used Carmen's Veranda Birds Background Stamp

Reminder to read our rules so that your entry is eligible to win prizes :)

AND don't forget that we have lifted our restriction that only LCD/CV stamps be used to enter our challenges.  But if you do use LCD/CV images then your entry will count as two which means you double your chances of winning.

Tell all your friends, come join us, and stay to play :)
