CASE Study Challenge #80

It's the beginning of the month, and it means that we get to introduce a new Muse as well! We're excited to announce the Queen of CAS, the fabulously talented Laura Bassen!! Yep, you guessed right from the sneaky peek... I told ya' it would be an easy one! :)

A word from Laura:
I’m a wife and mom to five adorably loud and messy kids living in central Illinois. I studied graphic design in college, but I’m currently working towards a master’s degree in efficient diaper changing and peanut butter and jelly sandwich making. I’m a procrastinator, a blog stalker, a French fry lover and a card challenge junky, and I'm so incredibly honored to be the March "Muse" for the fabulous team at CASE Study!!! Looking forward to an exciting month!

Here's the 'famous' piece of inspiration from Laura, served for our viewing pleasure this week. We hope it will get your creative juices flowing.

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)

Jean Martin

Maureen Plut

Teneale Williams

Now all you have to do is play with us!

Here are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC80), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose authors of the four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Happy creating!
The CASE Study Design Team
