A PINK Challenge (due 3/14)

I have been asked if I would start posting challenges again. After this weekend of scrapping with some pals I am feeling refreshed and recharged. So, every two weeks I will post a new challenge. Once you complete the challenge post it on your blog and leave the link in the comment section to this post. Please do not send it to me because I can not post it for you (plus we want to see your blog!). This time around I will be supplying a SMALL R.A.K to one of the participants (I will draw names from a hat). Once selected make sure you E-mail me your addy so I can get you the SMALL R.A.K LOL!

Sooooooooo on with the challenge!!!

This weeks challenge is all about PINK

Of course there is a twist! I mean come on a Pink challenge is not really a challenge at all, so here is the twist! It has to be a pink Layout about MEN (or boys).

Evil, evil, evil aren't I? Insert evil grin here <> I actually do not have a LO done yet, but promise to post one in the next few days. After all, I would not ask you to do something if I will not do it, right? That would just be poopie of me! In the mean time, here is some inspiration:

Use your imagination! Be brave and let me see your men, boys, and makes in pink. This really should not be that hard right? I mean we just had Valentine's Day so that can be your reason for doing a Pink Boy LO! Have fun and make sure you show me what you come up with :-)

Create Create and Create Some More

I was able to do three LOS this week. The first is not my favorite, but I am happy that I was able to use some of om stash! I love the owl paper and it has been in my bag of scraps for some time. Nice to get it on a LO!

Sugarland released a new song (Maybe it is just new to me) and I heard it on the radio this week. I fell in love with it right away. In fact, there were a few people I thought could relate to it and shared it. I had to scrap it because it was just to perfect! I have had this picture for a few years and knew it worked! I also have a slew of thickers that I would like to get rid of. Once the "e"s are gone I have a hard time using up all the thickers in the package. In fact, I would like to work through all my thickers and just go to stamping titles because I hate having left over alphas. So, I used my thickers to make the PP on the LO. Anyways, here is my LO:

I made all the flowers too. I had purchased this crinkle type paper from SU! awhile ago. Like usual, my eyes were bigger than my need and I bought way to much of it AND I really am not the crazy about it. I pulled out my silver roll and made these flowers the same way I make the fabric ones. I then glimmer misted them each a different color, added a center, bling and leaves. I LOVE them now :-)

Here is the close up of my paper I made with thickers. Basically all I did was cover a white 12 by 12 cardstock in thickers, painted them black, and used Glimmer Mist Chalkboard mist in charcoal.

I did this LO about a little tradition that the kids and I have. Basically, I don't like balloons in the car and we came up with a way to get rid of them before we get in the car and that is what this LO is about. There really are two balloons in the sky, but you really can't see them. The picture is not the main focus of the LO, but the journaling is:

Thanks for looking :-)
