W2CB #67: 50 Years Ago Today

I was a little girl, and my mother settled me into my rocking chair in front of the TV.  She told me to pay close attention, and someday I would tell my children and grandchildren that I watched the first lunar landing live.  Mom was ahead of her time, and recognized the importance of making memories.  I've tried to do that with my son, but he is young enough that the jury is still out!  I have always told him that I love him to the moon and back.

Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By as we honor the mission's lunar plaque inscription.
We came in peace for all mankind.
The challenge is open through July 24.  Peace.

W2CB #67: The Men on the Moon

Hi, everyone! It's the second Wednesday of a new month.... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

July 20th will mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. In honor of Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Michael Collins, and all the men and women of NASA, we remember the mission's lunar plaque inscription.

We came in peace for all mankind.

We have a few creations to get those crafting juices flowing, starting with a gorgeous card by Guest I-Teamer Julia. Thanks so much, Julia, for joining us for this challenge! We're thrilled you accepted our invitation.  :)

W2CB #66: Running Barefoot

Hi, everyone! It's the second Wednesday of a new month.... which means it's time for a new Words 2 Craft By Challenge.

In the good ol' USA, our thoughts are turning to trips to neighborhood pools and adventures on sandy beaches. In honor of National Go Barefoot Day, we thought it was fitting to choose the following words from Leslie Grimutter.

My own prescription for health is less paperwork 
and more running barefoot.

Here are a few interpretations of  these words 2 craft by, starting with an adorable card made by our Guest I-Teamer Deanne Saunders , who shares her adventures in crafting over at A Little Bit O' Paper.

Thank you sooooo much, Deanne, for joining us this month! Your little beach-loving-tot couldn't be any cuter, and we couldn't be happier that you accepted our GDT invitation.  :)

And Our W2CB Winner Is...

Julia Aston... who wowed us with this non-card creative take on our W2CB Challenge! Julia reminded us that no student achieves graduation without the support of special teachers. As a former teacher, I know that there was no greater thank you than watching former students receive their diplomas.

Julia of Create with Me

Congratulations, Julia! Please e-mail me at cards[dot]by[dot]sybrina[at]gmail[dot]com to make prize arrangements.

Huge thanks to everyone who played along with us this past month... including our Instagram participants who, for some reason, I am unable to leave comments for their cards/projects. And, you all are making it tougher and tougher to choose a winner. 

We'll be back next Wednesday with a new challenge.Until then, happy crafting!
