Challenge #100!!

It is time for challenge number 100!

Before we get to the challenge, here is a little history of how we got started. Many years ago many of us "met" on the ScrapbookSteals facebook page. Sharing our family and personal stories through their scrapbooking blog naturally led to online friendships and then a facebook group where we could "talk" all things crafty, not just the fabulous steal of the day. One day talk of starting our own challenge site began. A few months later The Paper Girls Challenge blog was born! So now here we are 4 years and 100 challenges later! Many of the original 9 Paper Girls are no longer active with us, but we have had many more join us throughout the years.

To celebrate today's milestone, our theme is
The theme "Paper Girls" is open to interpretation. You can go with Girls, Paper, Paper Dolls, Friendship, Scrapbooking, even the number 100 or a big celebration! We invited all Paper Girls, past and present, to participate in this challenge.  

Here is the current design team's projects:

Amber scrapped a photo from a ScrapbookSteals retreat where she got to meet several Paper Girls.

Challenge #99 - Rainbows

Happy Monday, everyone!  Michele here, with the next Paper Girls challenge for you. Does anyone else feel like spring is in the air? To help celebrate the coming of spring, my challenge theme is


I can't wait to see all of the colorful projects you all create!

Here's my card. First I inked up a background stamp with a rainbow of Distress Inks and stamped onto watercolor paper. Then brushed over the stamped image with water to spread and blend the ink.  I just cut off a little strip of it to add to my black background. The sentiment is heat embossed in white.

I love what the other Paper Girls have created this time around, please take a look!



Plain and simple journal page with a quote perfect for this chall:
"Be the Rainbow in someone else's cloud"
