Today is a sad day, but let’s go out with a bang and have our biggest and best challenge ever! October will be our final challenge, and the blog will close down with our final post being the winners announcement for this challenge early next month. This month is somewhat of an anything goes, holiday edition! And we have a special prize this month (below). We’re looking for holiday cards, ANY holiday.

We would also like to take this time to thank each and every person that’s ever participated in challenges, shopped the store, designed for our design team, worked behind the scenes, and had any hand in making a2z scrapbooking grow & raise money and awareness for the multiple charity organizes we started this store to contribute to.

And here is some design team inspiration for you.
