The Lollipop Girls of C.S.D. and I plan to take Paper Crafting Challenges to a Whole NEW Level and you are going to be EX-CI-TED!!!! Even more than you are now. I tell ya!

So, with that said....I thought you would need a little warm up before the BIG Debut.

For this Pre-Challenge "Warm It Up" you may create any Paper Creation that your heart desires. However, you are to use ONLY warm colors on your creations alright?

IF you choose to create a Scrapbooking Layout you must use the sketch provided as inspiration. MAKE IT YOURS! Much thanks to Anam from Twisted Sketches for providing this sketch for us to use!
Instead of using White, try Beige. Instead of Pink, try Red. Instead of Black, try Brown. No Bright colors, no Pastel colors....just go with the spirit of this Pre-Challenge.

You must also:
- include your Special Ingredients and a Short Description/Journaling about what you made.

We have done away with the Mister Linky Widget because we were having too many problems with it. So, simply include a link to your Paper Creation for this challenge when posting your comments.

I'm looking forward to seeing your "Warm It Up" Creations! Make me happy girls!

With Love,

Lynnette Davis
