LTSCB #45 - Initial Challenge of 2015!

Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! We've had a week off and we're back this morning, just raring to go with our first challenge of the new year! We are super stoked to bring you four new designers and an amazing lineup of challenge themes, sponsors and prizes this year! Woo-hoo! :)

First off, we'd like to say good-bye and bid a very fond farewell to our teammies, Debi and Shuly. These ladies are two super talented designers and have never failed to create amazing projects. We thank you, Debi and Shuly, for your service to our design team! We will miss you greatly and wish you the very best. Big hugs from all of us!

We would also like to thank our December guest designers, Susan, Merlina and Wei Wei! I think you'll agree that they did an awesome job! Thank you, ladies, for your fabulous contributions to our challenge blog while guest designing for us!

Okay, here's what you've been waiting for! The theme for our first challenge this year is...
Initial Challenge of 2015!

We challenge you to create a project using an item beginning with at least one letter of our challenge blog initials (L, T, S, C or B)!
And please state what item(s) you used in your blog post! :)
Please note that most of our designers used an item beginning with all five letters of our challenge blog initials, however, the requirement is to use at least one! Easy peasy! 
And you can use any rubber/clear or digital stamp you want!
[That means we need to see STAMPING on your project!]

Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are

Prize: 3 images to winner

Prize: $25 gift certificate

Prize: $10 gift certificate

How seriously awesome is that?! We are so grateful for these sponsorships!

Prepare to be dazzled and inspired! Check out these awesome projects created by our amazing design team...
