Challenge 1 for DCRU - Monogram It!

Saturday I broke the exciting news of the first ever Design Team for the fabulous new online store, Die Cuts R Us. Today is the DT's first ever challenge! Today's challenge is to use a monogram on your card/layout/project. Give it a try and link your project to the DT blog.

If you have any products from the Die Cuts R Us store, USE THEM! If not, you can still join in and use what you have! You have until 7 PM on Saturday night to upload your projects to Mr. Linky. Winners will be announced on Sunday in the Sunday Buzz post! There just might be a fab prize for the winner!

**Remember to post a DIRECT LINK to your project from your blog or gallery. Also- post about this challenge on your blog and help us spread the word!

My project is a journal made for a dear cousin of mine. I used the following supplies: From the Downtown Collection-Coney Island and Gramercy Park Double Sided Paper from DCRU; Flowers and Acrylic Jewels-Prima; Scallop Square Punch-Fiskars; Stampin' Up grosgrain ribbon, Purely Pomegranate ink, Round Scallop Punch and rub-on; Cricut Expression with Accent Essentials Cartridge for 4" Circle; Just Rite Stampers -Damask Monogram Kit from DCRU.

Hope you'll visit the DCRU DT blog and play along in our first challenge! You never know, you could be this weeks big winner! Thanks for playing!

Love your journal! You have a great sense of style. I like how the monogram circle is repeated with the sentiment. ~Diane(DCRU DT)
