The prize? A guest design team spot for May. So .... what are you waiting for????
This is also the birthday bash weekend at Paper Secrets. There are games and challenges going on through Sunday evening .... I'm hosting a Steal the Gift challenge Friday evening, Saturday morning and Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon. Those women are WILD, I tell ya!
And ... the grand opening for the new LSS here in town is tomorrow from 10 until 2. I am fortunate enough to be on the design team for the store. So excited! Until it opens tomorrow, the closest LSS is an hour away. Can't wait to have one uptown -- within walking distance!
I did get some scrapping done earlier in the week. This one is the example for my Wednesday challenge at Cookin' Up Creations to use a doily or lace. The papers are Echo Park's For the Record, from the Sweet Peach Crop Shop March Juicy kit. The Diva is my oldest granddaughter and the photo was taken 3 years ago. It's still my favorite photo of her -- so posh!
The new April Blue Plate Special challenges are starting now, with a new one every day. Always so much fun! And there is a prize drawing at the end of the month (because we all love prizes and winning!)
And I made this quick little card in response to Lisa's card challenge at My Sketch World to use spring colors and a banner. I punched out tiny shapes and threaded them onto some embroidery floss to make my banner. The papers are October Afternoon. The March challenges are done, but the new April ones are just starting to go up on the forum, as well as the NEW April layout and card challenges.
And these cards were my design team reveal on Monday at Cookin' Up Creations.
The papers are Basic Grey. The flowers and leaves on the left side are made with Japanese washi tape from Cu-te' Ta-pe' and centered with tiny Primas. The sentiment tag is a Text Me tag from P.S. It's in the Details. I ran it through my printer to add the verse and then used Scenic Route rub on for the title. On the right, the button trimmed tree tag and owl are also Details tags.
I do plan to scrap this weekend -- hopefully very productively! I'm the featured subscriber on Sweet Peach Crop Shop's blog on Sunday, April 10 as part of their one year anniversary celebration - very excited about that! And I will be offering the CROP CHEF challenge this Monday on Cookin' Up Creations; need to get my example done. And there are always challenges everywhere -- love 'em!
Have a great weekend!
