Challenge 139 - Fall Fun

Welcome to Challenge 139
Fall Fun + a Sentiment
Aug 27 - Sep 8, 2015

 Quick NOTE: Julie posted the winners last night, 
so if you want to see some talent - [or see if you won!] - 
just scroll down to the WINNERS' POST!

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
This week's Freebie Sentiment 
Since we require a sentiment on your project, Ginny H from our Design Team is providing a sentiment every week for you!  You are welcome to copy and paste any or all of the sentiments for your personal use, or use it as inspiration for your design.  If you use Ginny's sentiment, she would love it if you leave her a comment, either here or on her website As.I.Do.Rodos.
 Thanks!

There is a new FREEBIE every Thursday!
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Our teammates are using one of the two images provided by  The Paper Shelter  who is sponsoring this challenge.  TPS is also generously offering a prize for the winner of this challenge!  If you see an image you like, or if you want to shop around in their catalog of images, you can click on the link to go directly to their shop.



We have four brand new members
joining our team...
and we are so excited to have them!

A written introduction for each, 
written in their own words, is coming soon.
A HUGE welcome to some very talented ladies:

Berni from Chasing the Dream
Elaine from Simpli Crafti
Jennifer from Glitter in My Hair
Lisa from Crafty Train

Berni starts today with Team A and Elaine, Jennifer and Lisa's work will all be seen next Thursday when Team B presents our inspiration pieces!

So, here is what our Aud Sentiment Designers have created to inspire you!  What I love about the projects today is that you can see different ways you can use one image and come up with such uniquely different  projects.  If you want more details on any project, or want to see more of their work - their blog names are linked for your convenience.
To keep you motivated, our 2nd team will provide even more inspiration at the Week Two post next Thursday! 

Berni from Chasing the Dream

Billie from Ink on My Fingers

Ginny H from As I do Rodos 
using  Funny Cornucopia 

Julie from Julie's Crafty Spot

Sandy from Sandy's Creations

Only THREE Key Rules:
  1. As you might guess from our name - we require a SENTIMENT that is appropriate for the theme/challenge.  If you make a card and put the sentiment on the inside instead of the front, you need to include a picture on your blog post that shows us the sentiment.  
  2. Please mention Aud Sentiments and create a link to us.  When you enter your link at Inlinkz, it needs to go directly to your project, not just to your blog's home page.
  3. You may enter up to 5 times, but all entries need to be new & posted after the start of our challenge.  
Other details regarding our challenges can be found by going to the tab titled "Challenge Rules" at the top of the page.

Soccer Club, homework and all the usual events for the young students will need more "Mommy time"!!   And finally, Amy too has a series of commitments that will need her re-prioritizarion!  Thank you all for the time and effort you have given Aud Sentiments over the many months - we have so enjoyed having your creative spirits with us and we wish you all safe journeys!
