Lauren Meader Joins us at TCC as a Guest Designer

Whoo hoo it's Friday!!!

We are so excited to have Lauren Meader join us this week as our Guest Designer for Feature Friday. Lauren is Owner/Designer of My Time Made Easy LLC and if you have never been to her site you have to go check out her stuff it's fabulous!!

Here's a little info about Lauren and My Time Made Easy.

"My name is Lauren Meader and I am the creator of My Time Made Easy™ LLC. I am just like you! Whether you are a business woman, stay at home mom, a working mom, or everyone in between, we all have the same things in common! Our free TIME (and often expendable income) is limited! Our daily lives are busy, and full of responsibilities. I have family to care for, a house to clean, meals to cook and that is just the first of many hats I need to wear daily. It can be hard to find "me" time. Many of us have so little time for ourselves these days, that we need to really maximize the time we do get to use, and make the most of it! That is where My Time Made Easy™ LLC comes in!"
"This entire venture started with a simple goal: Sharing what I love with the world!! I began papercrafting in 2004, while pregnant with my third child. I needed something for "me". Once I inked up that first stamp I fell in LOVE! It has gone from a hobby to a passion. I never would have thought after purchasing my ONE stamp, that it would lead me to where I am today!"

There's so much inspiration to be had by visiting Lauren's Blog, you won't regret it and you'll only come away with a gazillion things to add to your "to try" list!

Here is the amazing project Lauren created using her template - In a Pinch and Fairy Belle from TCC...

It's absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Much to our surprise, Lauren not only created the lovely In A Pinch Fairy gift box, but this fabulous card using the Sunflower digital image as well!

We just love them and hope you do too.

Now for our TCCFF #10 3D Challenge this week...

We would like you to use Lauren's Cutsie Cover template available for FREE (or any of her other templates) with any TCC digital image. If you don't have any of our digi's, don't worry, you can get one of our freebies here. The challenge is open until next Thurs. at 10pm EST.

The winner will receive our new Valentine Releases (there are 3 of them) as the prize. They'll also receive a 15% off Discount Coupon for The Character Cafe Store, a winner's badge for their blog and they'll be featured on our website with a link to their blog/gallery.

Our extremely talented Design Team has some more inspiration for you...these ladies make it look so easy...

and Piali did up another using one of our new releases...

Lastly, Kelly and I took part this week (she coloured, I pieced) and created this set for inspiration... it's using our new image Robbie Racoon as well as the 4Evah Set (that's one of the freebies for you... click here if you want to download it from 4shared, or you can go to the store freebies section)...

We really want to thank Lauren for joining us this week for Feature Friday and hope she can come back and Guest Design for us again sometime!!

So hurry and go checkout Lauren's templates and get crafting your 3D project for our challenge.

Make sure if you are posting it on SCS, PCP or SNR, you use TCCFF10 so we can find you!

Thanks for playing along with us, can't wait to see what you come up with :)

That's it for today!

Happy crafting,

Kendra & Kelly (the imaginary illustrator)
