Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!
Hello Portal Peeps!  Gail here.  I hope you had a safe and spooktacular Halloween.
 Thank you for the awesome response to both our October challenges.  We will be announcing winners on the 5th of the month, so do pop back and see who wowed the team and gets our snazzy blog badge and the coveted Lost Coast dollars.  I'd also like to say a heartfelt and awed THANK YOU to the team, who have created amazing art everyday in October and really taken the blog to new heights of awesomeness.  October is our month to shine and the team put in extra special and continuous effort to keep you inspired and entertained.  If you haven't checked out the October posts please do, and leave a little love here and there.  We all need a little love and appreciation.
It's time for our new Challenge.
Our challenges are now fortnightly!  A new challenge starting the 1st and the 15th of every month, with chances to win your self some Lost Coast dollars.




We would like to see your stamped Day of the Dead style projects.  We realise not everyone celebrates that particular festival so we will also accept floral and/or spooky projects, for those not in the spooky mood and for those still in the spooky mood Bwahaahahaaa.  Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project.  A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!!  Bwahahhaaahaha.

Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!

You are welcome to play in our Challenges using rubber stamp images from any company but if you use any of our Lost Coast Designs or Carmen's Veranda stamps...we love it when you do...then your entry counts as two which doubles your chances of winning in our random prize drawing.


To ensure you all have a fabulous time playing in our Challenges this is how our Prize system works!
The more entries the better the Prize so tell all your friends to join the fun too!

If you don't have a blog then no prob, you can still play in our challenges by sharing your projects from public photo sharing sites which includes our Facebook Company Pages for Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda.  Please include our Challenge info and the link back to our challenge in your photo's description!  As long as the privacy setting for your photo is public you're good to go.  See, it's so easy to join the fun!  FYI, you can't link up projects shared in closed Facebook groups!
