City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #110 A Rose is a Rose

Hi ALL!  It is Cheryl back as hostess for this week's challenge.  I was inspired this week by the GORGEOUS papers from our sponsor, Digital Paper Store.  I just LOVE all the LOVELY roses that adorn them.  There is something so romantic about roses. For our theme I chose "A Rose is a Rose" and your challenge is simply to use rose(s) somewhere on your project.  I just KNOW you all are going to come up with some STUNNING projects and we can't wait to see them.

~ Cheryl

Guest Designer

Get to know Shahrul.....


Hi, my name is Shahrul Niza, I live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. When I first started scrapbooking a few years back, my passion was making mini albums. And now my art has evolved into mixed-media, collage, water color painting, art journaling and recycle/upcycle/altered art. My latest craze is alterations! I seemed not to be able to stop altering things : )) I love to incorporate different art techniques and use found objects or flea market finds into my mini albums. I hope my altered book box project will inspire you to turn old things into something useful and beautifl. Looking forward to see many great creations from everyone.

Guest Designer 

Get to know Ragnhild.....


My name is Ragnhild, I live far up north in Norway. I am married and have two wonderful daughters, aged 17 and 20.
I love cardmaking and have been making cards for a few years. One and a half year ago, I was operated for cancer, and following that I had chemotherapy. In that period of time, cardmaking was like therapy for me. I find lots of inspiration on many great crafting blogs, there is so much creativity!
I like to make cards in a vintage or shabby style, using pale colors, lace and flowers, everywhere I go, I look for things to use in my cards.
I was so thrilled to find out that I won a challenge here at City Crafter Challenge Blog and got to be a guest designer! Hope my card is inspirational for you!
