Are you up to the challenge???

So if you've spent ANY time at all in the Orchard Forum you know that we have some KICK BUTT challenges! Both weekly Freebee/Prize challenges posted every Friday on the blog (like the Apple Cart "Mini Kit" challenge, a Scraplift or Template Challenge, and a "fruit salad" designers' choice challenge). Then there is MY personal favorite, a WordArt Wednesday Challenge hosted by Bethany of Elegant WordArt, AND we have less "official" challenges hosted by our FABULOUS moderators and CT members (like color challenges, Scrap that Tune using lyrics in your layouts and many many more!)

But we have added two new challenges recently to the forum and I wanted to spotlight them here!

The first is a SPEED SCRAP challenge hosted FANTASTIC Melisa of Fairytale Studios (the next one to take place in just a few days on August 16th! and the next is a REALLY COOL, and much harder challenge called "Bring it" which is hosted by our very own Kami, of Ziggle Designs! Here's the rules for this month's BRING IT challenge, I can't wait to see what you ladies come up with! You can check out all the challenges, including Bring it, in our Challenges Section of our forum!!

Bring it! From Kami:

Since we got off to a late start in July, I made the challenge a little bit easier for ya! But now that we have the WHOLE MONTH of August, I'm gonna take it up a notch!

As you know, the Summer Olympics are starting this month! We all love seeing the athletes compete and rooting our home countries on toward those shiny, gold medals! But more important than winning, is the Spirit of the Olympics! The coming together of nations from around the globe. Putting race, gender and religious and political beliefs aside, and uniting in a peaceful contest and demonstrating that there really is room enough for us all on this planet.

So this month's challenge is going to be "Tolerance".

How has tolerance (or intolerance) affected your life or the lives of your loved ones?
Show us what "Tolerance" looks like to you? What it mean to you?

I know this won't be easy, but I know you guys can do it! One winner will receive a $10 coupon to my store!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing all your layouts!!

So? What are you waiting for?? You're not chicken are you???? he he he!
