Square Off with White on White for Freshly Made Sketches and The Paper Players

I'm living life on the wild side today and tackling TWO challenges at once!! I don't often do that, I guess, because I'm not spending the time to go searching for challenge blogs I can combine, but this week it was handed to me on a platter, because two challenge blogs that I play regularly, had challenges that I could coordinate this week.

First Freshly Made Sketches had a unique square shape with an off-center diagonal that was intriguing:

And The Paper Players had a White on White Theme Challenge that was fun to try out:

It's always a challenge to find ways to get variety that shows up when you do a white on white card. Here's how mine turned out:

This past weekend was Stampin' Up!'s OnStage convention and I didn't get to go this year for various reasons. So I was pretty envious and a bit grumpy because of it, I'm afraid. But today, anyone who is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator will get to preview the  Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. We will drool for a couple of weeks and then be able to pre-order come December 1. As part of the general public, you won't see the catalogues until mid-December and won't be able to order from them until January 3rd. Would you like to have that early privilege of being able to see and order all the new product ahead of everyone else? If you join Stampin' Up! by ordering the Starter Kit between now and January 2. You can order some of the new product as part of the merchandise in your starter kit and take part in the preorder as a new demonstrator! If you would like to join my team, just click on Join My Team in the top menu and follow the prompts. You need to live in Canada for that to work. If not, contact Stampin' Up! and they will put you in contact with a demonstrator near you.

I think you've aced combining the two challenges.
