SCIC35 and Lots of "NEWS"!!!



Hi Stampers!!!
This week at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge we have all kinds of reasons to celebrate and we want you to join the party!!  We are super excited to debut our new blog look!!  What do you think?!  Pretty fabulous huh?!!  And what makes it even more special, is our very own Rochelle Gould designed it for us.  I love the fresh and fun look.  So cute!!

Another reason we are celebrating this week is beacuse we have two new SCIC Design Team members!!  We want to send a great big happy welcome to Cori Kozak and Marlene Peters.  Two amazing stampers that I know will inspire you each and every week.

With all this celebrating going on, we just had to have a bright and colorful party inspiration for you this week.  Use the photos to inspire you to stamp something fabulous.  Please stay close to the theme and or colors in the photos.  Upload your project to your blog or other online gallery and then come back here and share it with us using the Linky tool at the end of this post.  Be sure to link back to us so others can play along too.  If you want, you can copy and paste the inspiration photo into your post.  Maybe it will inspire someone else to play along too!  Be sure to upload your project by Tuesday, January 18th, and you could have the chance to be one of our Design Team "Pick of the Party" winners.

Speaking of a party... what's a party without a little candy?!!  Since we are so excited about our new blog look, we wanted to offer up some BLOG CANDY!  So for this challenge, our Top 3 "Pick of the Party" winners will receive a box of Stampin' Up! goodies donated by our Design Team members.

Here's the scoop: 
1.  You must participate in this challenge and upload your project by Tuesday, 1-18-11.
2.  You must become a Follower of the SCIC blog (Yay if you already are!).
3.  You must add our "I play at the Stampin' Celebration" blog badge to your sidebar.
4.  You must leave a comment on this post.
5.  You must leave a comment on each of the Design Team members blogs for their SCIC35 project.
It's that easy!!

You can grab our new blog badge from the sidebar.  If you were a previous Top 3 Pick of the week, grab the new "Pick of the Party" badge and let all your friends know how fabulous we think you are!!

Now let's get this party started!!  Here is what our amazing Design Team has created for you this week.






















We hope you will join our party and play along!  There might be a little candy in your future!!  Please add you link below.

Love the new look and what a fitting challenge. I know it's been a while since I've played (growing a baby has been playing havoc with my creativity), but I will really try this week!

Love the new look! I always love playing along your beautious inspiration photos, but I think the blog header is speaking to me today. So far I've completed all but the actual stamping.

I need a little help. I have left all the comments I need to, but can not for the life of me figure out how to get the blog badge for my blog. Could someone help this chucklehead? Thanks!
