Something in My Pocket Challenge

Our long posts continue with the winners of our 'Old Year/New Year' challenge, new challenge, new DT intro continuation, and new childrens' challenge blog debut!

I'll give you a moment to top off your morning cuppa and take a brief intermission for a sweet roll ...... :)

Off we go!

Thank you to everyone who played along in our last challenge - 'Old Year/New Year'! so many fun things were used in your projects! Just a reminder to be sure to follow our few challenge rules when linking your projects. Several of you didn't qualify for the prize drawing because you didn't follow along. Sorry about that.....

Our Top 3 winners are:

1. Helen (Crafty Mama Mia)
2. Sally M.
3. Betty Benton

Congratulations to you! Be sure to grab the badge on the sidebar to the right for your blog. Helen, please choose a digi from the Jellypark store and send an email to Claire at jellypark at

Our new childrens' challenge blog, Jellypark Juniors, has kicked off it's premiere challenge! Be sure to pop over and take a looksie! Anyone 16 years of age and younger is more than welcome to play along! You should see the prize for the winner this time..... just saying'! ;)

Now on to the new challenge..... "Something in my Pocket." we are asking you to create a papercraft project that incorporates a pocket somewhere on it. I don't know about you, but in the winter especially, I am always tucking things in my pockets - gloves, hats, scarves, tissues, change, keys, you name it. so let's put a pocket on it!
Remember that you may enter our challenge twice each playing period, just to keep it fair to everyone. Also, be sure to show us where your pocket is located, in case it isn't obvious at first glance. Keep it family friendly, too, and have fun! :) If you use a Jellypark image, you get an additional entry into the drawing for Top 3!

Now on to the DT inspiration..... (Remember that our DT groups will switch next time)

Christy Dillman

I love working along side other talented people to share ideas, tips/tricks, and of course friendship and laughter. I love to create all types of projects from cards/layouts to altered projects. I have quite a bit of DT experience and love creating projects using a variety products and like being challenged to think outside the box.
I am a very busy mother of 2 boys- Micah 15 yo and Lucas 7 yo, I live in Excelsior Springs, MO just north of Kansas City with my hubby of 14 years. We are a very baseball family- we live, breathe, eat, and sleep baseball!!! When you don't find we at ball fields you will find we playing in my scrap area. I love working with sketches in both my cards and layouts, digis are my most fave thing to work with and I have lots of experience. I love to create all types of things from cards to scrapbook pages to altered items!

Georgia Ehrmann

I am married (38 yrs) with three children. I teach preschoolers with Special Needs. I love what I do! I feel blessed every day!
I love to work with all different mediums but Copics on paper seem to be my favorite. I love to do altered projects too ad think nothing of taking "trash" and recycling it into something useful or beautiful! ( I have taken the covers off of "take out food containers" and repurposed them into "angels" for Christmas trees. No kidding! (see my attached pic..). I am on several design teams at the moment and I am loving every one of them! Digital images are my favorite images to work with as you can change the size, flip them, crop, etc. It is so much fun to combine different images together on the same card!

Heide Dronchi

I am a mom of 2 children, Nicolas(14) and Mia(12). I am very active in my children acivities. I am married to my husband for 15 years and he is one of my biggest supporters. I also have a very crazy fur baby named Guinness.

Stacie Gorse

My name is Stacie, and my crafty-world name is Hestia's Helper.Hestia is the Greek Goddess of Hearth and Home, and I'm her helper.Up until about a month ago, I was a Domestic Goddess (aka Stay-at-home-mom) with two boys, ages 9 & 10 and a hubby of almost 12 years!
My best friend is my Bunn Coffee maker: I can brew a pot in less than 3 minutes!
In October we moved from North Carolina to PA, and I have recently started a new job.
Now I'm a full-time, tax-paying slave to the system.Staying home all day was a LOT more fun!I met Jennifer and fell in love with Jellypark Friends through The Crafter's Cafe and when they had a DT Call, I felt compelled to apply, just to have a chance to play with Claire's art work!This is a SUPER-fun team and I'm really looking forward to getting to know everyone!!

Suzie McFloozy

Hi I am Suzie a mother of 2 boys (5 & 2 Yr's) and wife of nearly 11 years to Kevin. We live in the UK.
I love to make cards especially with digital images as I find them so diverse. I love how I can resize and layer them up with other images or digi papers making them perfect whatever the project.
My card making style is varied and I love to change it up, creating cards from CAS to shabby chic, cute to classically elegant.

Jennifer Scull

Hello! My name is Jennifer S. and THEY say I am a coffee addict...... I don't think so, but I do love coffee and pink and buttons and shabby/vintage and lace and trims and paper (especially Basic Grey!) and my family and my dogs and papercrafting! :) but really, I have been playing at this hobby/obsession for about 10 years now and loving every minute of it. I repurpose all kinds of things, so don't be surprised if you find a belt loop from one of my son's shorts or perhaps a button from my hubby's shirt or a tea tag from my morning cuppa somewhere on my creation! it's all about the fun and whimsy!
