JANUARY 2020 CHALLENGE - ANYTHING GOES W/OPTIONAL TWIST: CAS (Clean and Simple)

Hello, Crafty Makers!
Welcome to a new year of challenges at A Place To Start.  We are so excited about our new teammates and we have lots of fun challenges planned for the year.  It seemed only fitting to get the year off to a "Clean" start.  We can hardly wait to see your designs.

We are sponsored this month by
BUGABOO STAMPS
Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was seven years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 

Winner's Prize
Bugaboo Stamps is offering a $12.00 Gift Code
which approximates the value of four (4) digital images.
The Gift Code will be sent directly to the winner by Bugaboo Stamps
