A new challenge!

Welcome to the new Mama Elephant and me challenge blog! ME and me? M&M? We can have so much fun just with the word play! :) This blog will be dedicated to monthly challenges featuring YOUR creativity along with fellow ME fans all around the world!

I know we all love our crafty goods, so let's really put them to use! I hope this blog will challenge you to stretch yourself and your stamps! I always think it's fun to see how one challenge can spark so many different creations. Mama Elephant will be here to provide that jump start with different challenges that will make you use your ME stamps and perhaps find and perfect your personal styles while at it! Over the course of time, I hope you create a collection of cards that you'll be proud of because you made it! We decided to call it Mama Elephant and me because it's all about Mama Elephant and you!

Here are some basic information for playing along:
  • Your entry must use at least one Mama Elephant stamp
  • Your entry must be based on the challenge/nspiration source provided
  • Your entry must link back to this blog post along with the graphic image
  • Winner gets featured here and a stamp set of choice
  • Deadline is July 28th
  • Link up using the Inlinkz on the bottom
  • Have fun, stamp, stamp, stamp!!!

Now I present you with our first challenge. Take a look at the image, how can the colors, layout, and details translate to your project? I love the fringe detail on the favor boxes and the bold pink title. 

Let's see how our M&M team tackled this challenge!
