*E* Thirsty Thursday

Thirsty Thursday sneaks up on us once more! Welcome to week 5 of our regular challenge feature here on the blog and this week are looking at the letter E! If you have yet to play along with any of the previous weeks worry not, just join in when you can. For now your challenge is to take inspiration from one or more of the "E" prompts below to make a layout, card or another crafty project. You can join in every week or as and when you are able, there are no deadlines (other than for a chance to win a prize - see the end of this blog post for more details)
So lets see EXACTLY how the letter E will be inspiring us this week...

E is ECHO PARK - This fun manufacturer made quite a splash when it launched itself 18 months ago and has since brought out a number of fun collections. We challenge you to create with your Echo Park products this week.

E is for EMBOSSING -Dry embossing with templates and a stylus or heat embossing with ink? Which will you choose to feature on a layout or card this week?

E is for ENVELOPES - Do the obvious and make a card to be contained by an envelope, or maybe use one on a page to hide journalling, or feature several in a home made mini book. Dig out your envelopes for this weeks letter E challenge.

E is for EMBELLISH - The cherry on top of our scrapbooking cake I think, when the paper is cut, the photo placed, journalling added then it is time for the embellishing! Share your favourite embellishments this week, maybe feature an embellishment cluster on your page.

E is for EMPTY- Keep things simple this week and create a card or layout with plenty of empty or "white" space.

This week we wanted to share Suzanne's 100% Girl layout which demonstrates an embellishment cluster idea you may like to adopt.

Dawn shares with us a lovely summery Echo Park layout too.

So that is another suite of alphabet inspired prompts to quench your creative thirst this week. Almost at the end of the month as well and so if you'd like to be in our draw for a chance to win our first Thirsty Thursday prize be sure to have shared your creations from the challenges for weeks 1-4, that is letters A to D on the relevant post. This weeks challenge will be part of those that run to the end of October.
