*R* Thirsty Thursday

My favourite day of the week again as we continue our Thirsty Thursday challenge series with the letter R. Below we have listed some R prompts for you which you can take to kickstart your next papercrafting project. Incorporate one or more in a layout or card and share your creativity using the link at the end of this blog post for a chance to win a prize in our monthly draw.

R is for RE-DO - Do you ever go back and re-do your layouts? I know some people who do, others who resist and move on to another photo and story to tell. I do however sometimes rescrap the same photo (especially if I am very fond of it!) Here Karen Moss shows you a complete re-do of a layout, same journalling, same title, one of the same photos... why not rise to this challenge this week?

R is for RED - I wonder how often you use this vibrant and passionate colour on your projects? I should imagine with Valentines day around the corner quite a little more will be seen of it in coming weeks within the papercraft industry! Why not show us your RED projects this week.

R is for RUB-ONS - Be they alphabet rub-ons used in your journalling or layout title or maybe some of the lovely image, flowers/scrolls rub-ons available let's see how you incorporate them in your next design.

R is for ROMANCE -Is love in the air or is that a chill?! You may choose to scrapbook a lovely-dovey photo, or an anniversary/wedding/engagement photo for this weeks challenge, or you could make a card to tell someone you love them. Karen Cole's card from January gallery illustrates this challenge mixed with the RED challenge.

R is for REVIEW - Ann shared her year in review layout here on the blog last week using Simple Stories papers. Why not use this idea to create a review of your 2011 and meet this R challenge?

As always we would love to see how you interpret the challenges this week. If you'd like to be in with a chance to win a prize from the shop this month simply link your creations using our Inlinkz tool below, or leave us a lovely comment with a link to your page and which of the Rchallenges (one or more) that you have met with your creation. This challenge runs until middnight on February 1st 2012.
