Wow, it's amazing what you can accomplish when a little snow keeps you from running around. The past two weeks, I've been amazed with the work on the Bad Girls website. Their design team has such beautiful layouts that your mouth just drops open in awe. Wendy Rago had posted weekly challenges on Project 52 and inspires you with ideas to get your creative groove moving forward. I took the lead from her mirrored image and decided to alter a plastic hand mirror we had on hand and I decided to cut and paste and mix up some embellishments for something a little different and unique. I love the way it turned out. Hope you get a chance to take a look at the website.

Well, Taylor is celebrating a whole year of Cupcake Challenges and is showing nine different sketches on various sites to celebrate this milestone. I'm posting a couple of times so I can get all the photos squeezed on to the blog. I'll also post on SCS's gallery for this weeks fun challenge. Lots of different sketches and lots of thinking involved. Since I had a delightful snow day today, I had time to play. Hope you enjoyed your day.

Wow, two posts in two days. Who knew I had it in me? Today I wanted to post my latest creation of this Vintage Valentine Book. I wanted everything to look really aged and I found just the right mix of papers and images to help me accomplish the look. I used images form Fairy Davis' website, papers from My Minds Eye and a chipboard album from Maya Road. A little grungeboard, a little glitter and a lot of ink....leads to one ages looking mini album.

Taylor's posted another cupcake challenge this week and since I needed to make a card for our dog breeder (for a new puppy), I thought I'd use this challenge to work on Taylor's sketch. I used some of my scraps that I had on hand. KI Memories' Love, Elsie line of papers were a nice way to work with the dog theme and my stamps from Pink Persimmon were a chance to use these new stamps I hadn't had the opportunity to use yet. I've notice some card makers starting to decorate the insides of their cards so I thought I'd try that too. This was a fun challenge to work on.

Happy New Year everyone! If you haven't been following Pink Paislee's blog, they had a terrific challenge today since it's their one year birthday. All you had to do was create a party hat using scrapbook paper and at least one PP paper, stamp or embellishment. They also had an hourly contest to be the 99th blogger to comment and you could win a great prize. It was so much fun watching the comments mount in a matter of minutes. I didn't win any of the door prizes but it was sure fun watching the comments. This party hat uses a sample of their many fun lines. I stamped the party chick with Stazon ink and then filled it in with some yellow and red glitter and dabbed a smidge of orange Stickles for the beak. The hats that were submitted on Live Pink are all so unique. This was a fun way to spend the afternoon. Thanks Pink Paislee for the chance to play.
