INKers Challenge #1 - February

Hi INKers!  This is Linda, your challenge hostess for February.
We have been having an awesome February so far in Northern California!  So sorry to rub it in for those of you in the East or Midwest or anywhere else in the throes of winter!  But usually we are having cold and rainy weather this time of year so having this warm, sunny weather right now is so nice.  Our trees are flowering, the daffodils and paperwhites are blooming and the camellia bush outside my front door has the most gorgeous bright pink flowers.  
For our first challenge, I will start simple: Create a project using the color(s) of your favorite flower.  Oh, and by the way, no flowers can appear on your project.  When you post your project, tell us what your favorite flower is and why it’s your favorite.
It’s as simple as that.  Use the color any way you want - paper, ink, coloring, etc. 

Have fun!!

INKers Challenge Rules

Before I post our first challenge, I thought it would be helpful to post some basic rules:
  1. You must use at least one Papertrey product on your project.
  2. Post a photo of your project on your personal blog.  Descriptive information is encouraged but not required.  
  3. Add a comment to the challenge post here with a link to the post on your blog.  We will look into replacing this with a linky tool.
  4. Visit your blog sisters' posts and leave some love.
  5. Challenges will be posted the first of every month and you have until the end of the month to submit your project.
  6. You may submit more than one project.
Feel free to combine this challenge with others, especially Papertrey’s Make It Monday weekly challenges. 

Linda

Welcome Papertrey INKers

The first couple of weeks will be organizational for us as a blog group. From who I've chatted with so far this is new for us all. So there will be some trial and errors. But in the end we are after having a fun place to share, motivate and be inspired. The look of the blog will also go through a lot of changes as I figure out what all Blogger will allow me to do. So as you see things that you like or dislike, please leave comments. I am looking for this to be a group effort and to delegate so it's not on one person.

Challenges:
Linda has taken on the responsibility of the first months Challenge. We had discussed trying to expand on the Make it Mondays Challenge to encourage each of us to enter and win the PTI challenges. So I personally like it when a challenge narrows my options and makes me play with something new or explore something old, or play with a color I don't normally go to. What are your thoughts?

I think the idea so far is to do a challenge once a month, we can change this to every other week if we start feeling there is a need. So if everyone would like to sign up for a month that would be great. Just leave a comment on this post and first person to claim a month gets it. I'll take what ever is leftover.

I will be starting another page within the Blog for us to do more of this type of "chat" and we can leave the front page open for challenge talk.
