Trick or Treat Blog Hop & Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge Winners!

Hello Magical Crafters,

Happy Friday! Thank you for joining us for this exciting day as we announce this week's blog prize winners, the winners for our Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge, and our final day of our trick-or-treat design team blog hop featuring Melanie Forbes and Gloria Stengel! It's going to be a fabulous and inspiring day! Fall is such a fun time of year. Pumpkins start showing up at the store and at farm stands! There's an ever-present creative energy in the air as folks gear up for Halloween. Plus there's all sorts of delicious goodies to bake and consume. Yes, Autumn is an awesome season! With this festive spirit in mind we came up with our Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge to help jump-start your holiday crafting. We want to thank everyone who submitted a project for the challenge and thank you to our voters on Facebook. Our two winners are Dee Dee Catron and KimberlyRae Forde. Here are the altered art projects they submitted for our challenge. They're super beautiful! Congratulations Dee Dee and KimberlyRae. Please email us at info@g45papers.com with your shipping information so we can mail you your prize! Hooray!  This first project is Dee Dee Catron's Magic of Oz creation. Wow! So lovely and festive! Here is what Dee Dee had to say about it.

"It started out as a white and green colored gardening fence complete with pots and shovel. I used The Magic Of Oz collection to spruce it up a bit.. I also used moss, pumpkins, wire, black acrylic paint, diamond glaze, hot glue, glitter glue, and cardboard to strengthen the characters. " Dee Dee Catron


Here we have a gorgeous Fall centerpiece by KimberlyRae Forde. Here is what she had to say about this wonderfully detailed work of art!

"Old Painters Can [rescued from the dump trailer my husband cleaned out and discarded from the garage..it's at least 15yrs old]! Rejuvenated into a Painters Can Fall Centerpiece. I used several papers from collections that I have-Times Nouveau, Playtimes Past and The Magic of Oz." -KimberlyRae Forde


We also have two winners to announce from this week's blog hop! We had a lot of fun and so did our design team members! Big thanks to everyone who participated and left comments on our design team member's blogs. We hope you had fun too! Our randomly chosen winners are...
