Happy Friday!!

The 30th challenge over at Papercraft Star is a fun one! Our challenge this week is a scraplift challenge. Scraplift ANY project on ANY of our current Papercraft Star Creative Team Member's blogs. You can see a list of all of our Creative Team Members right here. Be sure to add a link (or tell us) what Designer and what project you scraplifted from in your personal blog post so we can check it out!

If you are the winner of Challenge 30 you will win our People's Choice Award blog button as well as a prize from our sponsor. Our sponsor this week is Nikki Sivils, Scrabooker!! 

I decided to scraplift a card from my great friend, and co-founder of Papercraft Star, Beth Moore. When I went over to Beth's blog to check out her cards my eyes about popped out of my head when I saw that there were 108 items under the "cards" label. Her creations are all so amazing I was worried that I wouldn't be able to pick just one. And then, on the second page, what should appear.....CHICKENS!! Yeah...I was so excited. I stopped there and knew I didn't have to look any further. (whew..cuz 108 is a lot!) I honestly think she must have been thinking of me when she made this card anyway ;)
Here is Beth's fantastic card, 

I mainly wanted to copy the country/farm feel of Beth's card. I just love that chicken paper, I wish I had some! What I did have though was some farm themed paper from JilliBean Soup. I made a much simpler version of Beth's card, but that's me....simple. Here is my card,

The lighting for picture taking around here is not the best this week. It can't decide if it wants to be sunny or cloudy around here. I really need to get a light box. I did a lot of inking around the edges of the paper on this card, but it just doesn't show well in this photo....bummer.

I hope that you will join us at Papercraft Star this week for this fun challenge. You have until 12 Noon (eastern) Saturday Jan 29th to get your project linked up before the public voting begins.
