Here is her Word Challenge. Jess was stuck on this one for a bit until her lovely mother in law helped her out with an idea. I hope she has inspired you enough that you won't find this one too tough.

Here is Cathy's Colour Challenge layout. This colour scheme could be viewed as very masculine but not in this case. Cathy has used the criteria to create such a girl - pretty page and has only used the smallest amounts of white and black.
Here is Cathy's Ebony and Ivory layout. What a gorgeous fresh page this is. There are so many different shades of green and Cathy has used the soft greens to create her soft feminine page. I love how the cardboard has been used to create a photo mat.

May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

This month our DT member Kylene was given the Quote Challenge and the Number challenge.
Here is her Theme layout....a double!!! The criteria for this one is not an easy one. Us scrappers love to use flowers on our layouts and it's not always easy when you're challenged not to use them. I think Kye has done a fab job here. She's kept it very girly and pretty without a flower in sight!
This is Kylene's Number challenge. I'm told the Number challenge is always the hardest but not this month. I've taken your comments and created an easy one for you all. Here's Kye's creation.

Here's a little about the very talented Karen Grose.
I am a born and bred Melbourne girl, who is happily living in the "burbs" and can't see myself going anywhere else :) I've travelled all over the world, and lived in England for 18 months when I was younger. Met my hubby over there, and now we have 3 wonderful "monsters" - Ethan, Bailey and Aidan.
I'm a SAHM, who works part time as a swimming instructor. Love my job (particularly in summer time). I try to fit in scrapping when I can, but it's never often enough.
I am also a karaoke queen, but others would disagree ;)
I don't really know what my style is. But I do love to have lots and lots of embellies on my pages and bright colors. The more the merrier. Also love lumpy bumpy layers.
My favourite scrappy products are most definitely paints and glimmermists. I also love chipboard. Every LO you will be guaranteed to find all 3 items on there.
I prefer to scrap 12x12. Don't do doubles (just don't get them). Have tried smaller - am currently doing a 6x12 BOM for 2011 so we'll see how that goes.
Here's the sketch Karen had to work with and her fab layout
You can see more of Karen's awesome layouts at her blog.
Pop over to Challenge Heaven and upload your sketch challenge before midnight 28th February 2011 for your change to win a randomly drawn prize :)
