May 27- June 2 Picture Perfect challenge

Hello, Paper Smooches fans & friends!

**NOTE: This is actually our last week with this current Paper Smooches SPARKS team. We would like to say THANK YOU to the team for all of their hard work and amazing creations that they shared with us. <3

Today starts another fun challenge!! Be sure to check the bottom of this post for last week's winner and featured players:)

The fourth week of each month is always a Picture Perfect challenge. 
This week we are inspired by this picture!

So friends, that's your challenge--use this picture as your inspiration for your creation.  Follow it closely or use it loosely...just have fun! 

Create a NEW project (card, tag, layout, altered item, etc).

You must use at least one Paper Smooches stamp or free digi.

(stamps from other companies can be used, but please make sure that PS images are easily seen)

Post your Paper Smooches SPARKS project on your blog.  We would love you to include our SPARKS banner (shown on the right column) somewhere on your post, but it is not required.  (right click on the SPARKS challenge banner and save to your computer.  If you have any trouble, I am happy to e-mail the image to you) 
Please link to our web site: - and include Paper Smooches somewhere on your post.  Submit a direct link to your blog post using our linking system below.

If you do not have a blog, please upload your project to our Flickr Group and link to our web site in your description.  Submit a link to your gallery image using our linking system below.

Here's what you are playing for:
  • Two Paper Smooches SPARKS players will be chosen as our Featured Players. Featured Players will not receive a badge or gift certificate. 
  • One Paper Smooches SPARKS player will be chosen and named our PS Pro.  This player will be featured on the PSS challenge post as well as on the PS blog (Fridays), receive a blog button to display on their blog, and $30 credit to the Paper Smooches store!!! 
The deadline for this challenge is: Sunday, June 2nd at 10:59pm EST
