Last day to enter your submission is Jan 8th, you can enter as many times as you want using Mr. Linky @

What Pile It On is all about:
The theory behind Pile It On! is to create cards, scrapbook pages or even altered items using MORE THAN ONE challenge! We have found it to be a challenge to see how many challenges we could get into one project.

Here is the concept:
Each Sunday we will give you a challenge. We would like you to incorporate our challenge with at least one other CURRENT challenge (at the time of posting) to "qualify" to be one of our Three Top Scoops or should there be a prize offered that week.

Some challenges are listed below for your convenience. You are NOT limited to these. Should you use another challenge, please link it on your blog, so we can think link it on our blog!

The only other rule - HAVE FUN!

A few of the DT rules if you are chosen:
We will assign either TEAM A or TEAM B to be part of, you are expected to do a challenge every other week. (Of course you can always do all the challenges.)
Our challenges are posted in advance in a private yahoo group, but due to the nature of Pile It On, not much work can be done in advance since you have to have at least one more CURRENT challenge done in your project.
You can do ANY type of crafty item.
Samples need to be uploaded to the BLOG on Saturday.
We will rotate between the DT the selection of the TOP 3 Scoops!
The Design Team reign will be of 3 months
