Quoth The Raven, Punk You Girl, Smeared & Smudged Forum Junk Funk, and Smudgy Antics Challenges

I know, I know.  I should be working on getting this room up and running but...there are so many fun challenges going on right now, I had to stop and play.

First, click HERE to find out more details on the base of my project today.  I had previously made this mini Toilet Paper (TP) album and had posted instructions on "how to" on my Stampin' Up! blog.  I think I did around 5 different ones in all.    One package of SU! designer paper goes a long way.  I am planning on doing another TP album that will be different in the next week, so keep an eye out for it.  

Onto the Challenges!
Quoth The Raven is an awesome site for the Poe fans out there.  I could never play along until this past month when I received my Smeared Ink Rubber Club stamps.  This set, Quoth The Raven, is from February 2013.

Quest 24 - Tic Tac Poe is the challenge this month.
You can go up, down, or diagonal.  But all three in the row you choose must be in your project.
I chose the last column.  Raven, POE, Lace.
See if you can spot them!

Punk You Girl is another challenge blog that you have to keep on your list.  The Design Team has some really great inspiration.  This month's theme is Black & Red.  I am pretty sure you can spot the splashes of red.

You all know that the Smeared and Smudged Forum is my favorite place to lurk about.  The Junk Funk Challenge is using toilet paper rolls for or in your project.  We all have them and instead of just throwing them away, use 'em!  Join the forum and find out what more ways to use these everyday items.

Smudgy Antics, sister blog to the Smeared Ink Forum, goes every 2 weeks.  Plenty of time to get some creativity out there.  This month they have made it easy, Embellishments.  We all have them, we all use them, so why not show them off??  Get over there and see that fab embellishments the DT has used. 

Please scroll down to see all the pictures of each pocket, extra pages, and sliders.  The photos show the front and backs of each.
