Paper Piecings by Nikki Challenge #2

I have not done a challenge in so long I can't even remember when the last time was. I had a bit of free time over the weekend and I made this cute layout. I think it's been even longer since I made a layout but after seeing a friend of mine Julie post beautiful layouts I just had to give it a shot. If you want to check out Julies work you can ---HERE---. I have been seeing the really cute new patterns by Paper Piecings by Nikki on Facebook and I really wanted to give them a try and saw her week 2 challenge "Christmas" and figured seeing how I was slow with making critters I would have some time. The rules for the challenge is you had to choose between two patterns "Very Beary Christmas" or "Baking Memories" that you can buy in her store ---HERE--- I used the Very Beary Christmas to make these two 12x12 layouts.

I have 4 pull out tags on the top of the photo mats for extra photos or for little notes. 

Supply List:
Paper Piecings by Nikki
Papers by Reminisce - Holly Jolly Christmas
Bobunny- Double Dot Paper
Graphic 45- Christmas Emporium
DCWV-The Mrs. Claus's Kitchen Stack
Card Stock from my Stash
Poinsettia's by Prima
Colorbox Ink

My Goodbye to TBS Challenge Blog

On March 2, 2010 was my very first post with TBS and the very new challenge blog and now that it comes to an end I have made some very awesome life time friends. Even tho it's sad that this challenge blog is ending it is not like were saying goodbye forever. We will all still be out there in blogland.  
When I first started making the tear bears it was so hard to find any information out on how to make them. They were a very guarded secret with those who knew how to make them. Then I found Kimm and her awesome Acrylic Paper Piecing Patterns to make them. With a few emails back and fourth with Kimm I was on my way to tear heaven and haven't stopped since. When Kimm and Susan sent out the request for a Design Team and I applied I never thought I would stand a chance and they believed in me and I can't thank them enough for giving me a chance to be on this team. Over the time here my style has been evolving and still is. I have just in the last couple of weeks changed up how I make my Tear Critters to make them more my own and now with the fun I have been having with Kimm's other new adventure with Beary Sweet Designs I can bring my Tear Critters to another whole new level.

For my last post here I have made this cute photo mat set.

Made with....
Acrylic Paper Piecing Pattern
Mulberry Paper
Fabri Tac Glue
Colorbox Ink
Paper from Echo Park Merry Christmas
Misc flowers and stickers from stash

I'm not saying goodbye to my teammates but reflecting on how they have inspired me over the years.

Kimm (Owner)
You never stop amazing me with the new stuff that you come up with, your creative talents with these Tear Critterns and your new stuff with Beary Sweet Designs just keep making me want to create more and more. Thank you for believing in me to be part of this team. I have truly made a life long friend.  

Susan (Team Coordinator)
Susan has been the back bone of this team making sure we all have fun new challenges to bring to you. There is so much work that go's into what she does and I want to Thank you for all your hard work doing this. I also owe you many Thanks for believing in me to be on this team as well. Its been fun seeing how your style has also changed over the years and I have loved looking at all your wonderful work. I look forward to many more chats with you for a very long time and can't thank you enough for you personal help with my other adventures I have taken on. 

Gini I don't think I can look at distressing ever without thinking of you. Your cards are just so awe inspiring and I still haven't been able to master distressing like you but I think I will leave that up to you "The Distressing Queen" Thank you for all the fun times here at TBS and I look forward to seeing more of your work. 

Jamie, My how have you made me wish I was part of your family and to have gone to all the cool places you have gone to. Your layouts have been so fun to watch over the years and see how your kids have grown. Then to see you come out with some of the project you have and make me think Why didn't I think of that. I loved that you always included a great tutorial with your projects. I look forward to seeing more of you layouts over time and seeing what fun new places you go. 

Lori even tho you have only been with us a short time on the team and as a fan playing along for a long time your cards have always be wonderful to look at. I love seeing you awesome projects that you have come up with and look forward to seeing more. 

I have met some really nice people because of this challenge blog that I might not have met without it and talk to now on a daily basis. I have enjoyed seeing everyones entires and have been inspired by many of you.
Thank you for being a part of our family over the last year and a half.

This is such fun digital software to use and super easy. I made this in the first 5 minutes of downloading the software.

Now what do you have to do to win...
Well that's easy and I will give you 4 of chances to win.
First to have more than one chance to win you must make separate comments to add to your chances, if you make all your comments in one comment post that's only one entry but if you make 4 separate comments then that gives you 4 chances.

1st)The most important one head on over to

2nd) Become a follower of my blog if your not already or tell me that you already are and made a comment.
3rd) Head on over to My Memories facebook page and tell them I (Patty's Crafty Spot) sent you and become a fan if your not already and come back here and make a comment that your a fan you can find them ---HERE--- 

4th) Head on over to my facebook fan page Patty's Crafty Spot and become a fan if your not already and look for my post there for My Memories and leave a comment there and come back here and tell me you did that.

That will give you 4 chances to win. I will also be running this over on facebook for those that don't have blogs and to be fair every entry will be handwritten down and put in a hat. If you have a blog only comments here will count for you, the most entries you can have will be 4. The contest ends Sunday night at midnight EST and I will post a winner on Wednesday so that way if I have tons and tons of entries I have time to write them all down and pull a winner.
