Trying Something NEW!

I've decided to start hosting weekly challenges with a monthly giveaway chosen randomly for one lucky participant!  Each Saturday (Starting July 2nd!) here at Hiding in My Craft Room there will be a new challenge with a linky to share your creation for that week's challenge.  You will have the entire week to create something (card, scrapbook page, 3-D item, tag, etc.)  and get it linked.  So you will have up to 5 chances, depending on how many weeks there are in the month, to enter the giveaway.

Here's the schedule:

1st week:  A Color Challenge
2nd week:   Super Scraps Saturday (even though you have all week!) - time to use up some of those SCRAPS!  I personally need this challenge for myself!!!
3rd week:  Try a Technique Week
4th week:  Mix it Up!  This challenge will be different each week!
5th week:  Freestyle!  This week you can enter with ANY creation!!

I'm going to do this for a trial period of at least two months to see if anyone is interested and to see if I can keep it up! LOL!!  If you have any questions, concerns, advice, suggestions, please use the 'Contact Me' button at the top of my blog.  When I get a question in the comments I'm never quite sure how to answer it.

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the FIRST Friday of the month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!

I am soooo excited to be doing this!! JOIN ME Saturday July 2nd for the 1st challenge and PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD!!!
