The movie producer Cecil B. DeMille once said "Creativity is a drug I cannot live without." Being a nurse who stamps, wouldn't you know I'd love a quote about both drugs and creativity? Yep, you guessed it . . . paper crafting is my Prozac. It keeps me sane and happy. So it's an extra bonus when people actually like what I make and spend their precious time hanging out with me at Catered Crop.
The details of me and my gang are blissfully boring. Mr. Catered Crop and I grew up in Indiana and have lived in Texas now for over 25 years with our two adult children and our dogs, Mailey Dog and Pillow Pup. My day job as a nursing home investigator keeps me away from my crafting more than I'd like, but it also gives me the opportunity to meet and help amazing people across Central Texas.
I'm crazy excited to be a guest at the new Jellypark Challenge blog. I've been a huge fan of Claire Keay since I first found her stamps at My Favorite Things. And, now! Oh my! We get to buy her images on-line, have them in our laptops in minutes, and get great ideas from her fabulous design team. Oh, dear, my head is spinning. I hope you're as excited as I am and I'm looking forward to playing with you all again soon.

Let's announce our Top 3 winners from the 'Add Pink and a Ribbon' challenge first though..... thank you to so many of you who participated! We loved your beautiful creations!

Congratulations to our winners! Kelly, please contact Claire at
firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know your choice of a digi image from the Jellypark store. All of you be sure to grab the badge for your blog found on the right hand side bar.
Also, Jellypark will soon be starting a brand new challenge blog just for children, headed by our very own DT member, Mel! More info about this will be coming, so stay tuned! :) In the mean time, stop by Jellypark Juniors and become a follower. that way you won't miss a thing!
Now on to our new challenge..... we are asking everyone to use an image that is wearing a costume of some kind in your papercraft creations. it can be Halloween themed if you would like, but it doesn't have to be. just be sure that your cutie little person or critter is dressed up somehow, and remember we are a family friendly blog! grins! :) You may use any type of image you would like and enter up to 2 times, but a Jellypark image gets you double the chance of being in the Top 3! any more than 2 entries will not be deleted & we are happy to comment on them, but they won't be counted toward the contest. We have to be fair to everyone. :)
Here are some fun projects from the Design Team to inspire you!
but before I get to those cutie fun digis, I have to right a wrong on my part. a few weeks ago, Sara Moreno became a part of the DT, going from a guest to a permanent member. I neglected to post her adorable piccy and bio! shame on me! so you are going to get the full introduction now since I failed to do so last time....
so let me introduce you to Sara! you can find more of her fabby creations on her blog, Luminous in My Chaotic Dreams.
I'm a SAHM of 4-20,17,15,12. The 3 oldest are girls, and then we finally had a boy. We live kinda in the country with 5 dogs, 2 cats, 5 fish, 1 turtle, 2 tortoises, and 1 snake-ewww! I've been married to my best friend in the world for 21 yrs. We do have a hectic life, but love it! I've been stamping for about 13 yrs, and when I discovered digis-I was in heaven! I'm so happy to be here at Jellypark, so thank you for having me!
We are happy to have Sara as a permanent member of our team! Please stop by her blog and wish her a happy Jellypark hello!
