We are a Bi-Weekly challenge blog that will play for fun most weeks. Occasionally there will be a prize given away to one lucky challenge participant. The prizes will come from my scrappy supply online store: The Paper Trail or other sponsors and will be announced with the challenge so that you know if it is a prize challenge or not. Challenges will be announced on two Sundays during the month and you will have until the last day of the month to link your project to that challenge.Thank you for joining us in our journey of leaving behind a paper trail of us for our future generations.

Modern Millie - by Tanya
I loved, loved, loved working with Sassafras Lass again. Sassafras Lass, Indie Girl collection made this challenge super easy! I paired it with Sepia toned photographs of my daughter dressed as Thoroughly Modern Millie! A perfect match for the feathers, borders and accessories of Sass Lass' Indie Girl Collection. The stickers are great fun to play with, use them by themselves, or go crazy layering them and adding buttons and ribbons to create any vintage project. I took a collage type approach-and I love the results. The possibilities are endless!
Here's a close-up of some of the layers. I also used copper Stickles to give the large feather a bit of sparkle.
Our mission is to help you create a paper trail of you. Webster's dictionary defines a paper trail as : "documents from which a person's actions may be traced" and that is exactly how I view scrapbooking. We are creating and leaving a paper trail of our lives.
What I would like to do is challenge you bi-weekly to become a "trail maker" and make your paper trail as creative and interesting as it can be.
We will have various types of bi-weekly challenges to engage you and get your creativity flowing. From sketches, to color challenges, to manufacturer challenges, recipe challenges and much more!!!
Thank you for joining me and the Trail Makers DT. I hope you are up for the challenge!!
