Let’s Play BINGO

Hello all!

I am hosting this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff and we are playing BINGO!  I’ve created a fun bingo card to use on your project (a great way to get the MOJO going as well if you are stuck!).  Here’s the card , there are lots of fun items to play with.

Here is the card I created using the horizontal line of red, die cuts/cut aparts, hearts and doily

The DP is from American Crafts XOXO collection. The doily, die cuts and white foam heart are from recollections and the glittered hearts I cut using some Recollections glitter paper and my little $$ store heart punch.  I hope you like it and hop on over to the blog to play along and to see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

Besties!

It’s a new challenge day at Red Carpet Studio and I am hosting this week~  My Challenge is based on a movie that I love

MV5BMjA5MTEzMzE4MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDAzMTUyMg@@._V1_SY317_CR6,0,214,317_AL_

In this 1964 beloved musical, pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond — one that is threatened by an aristocratic suitor (Jeremy Brett).
THE CHALLENGE: CREATE A “GIRLY” PROJECT WITH LOTS OF LAYERS.

I still have a lot of product left from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan set that I won a long time ago.  I thought that it would be a great set to use for this challenge.  It has all kinds of fun embellishments and paper.  I also really love the colors.  I used a sketch that I found on Pinterest.  It’s from Scrap Paper Scissors!  A great little sketch!

Ladies Man!

Hello everyone! I am late posting this due to a very busy weekend on my part. Saturday I had a wonderful time at my crop for NSD!  It was so much fun and I managed to get a few pages done.  Then today I took my son to Heritage Park for their annual A Day out With Thomas and he had such a fun time!!!

Ok….down to work….Our new challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio.  We are basing it on the movie Something Borrowed.

THE CHALLENGE:  Create a project or layout using a “borrowed” sketch from our partner for this challenge “Stick It Down Challenge Blog.”

So, for my challenge I used this sketch of theirs, which I really really liked.

Here is the layout that I created based on the sketch.  I cracked open my Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection from American Crafts, which I won a couple of years ago.  I had forgotten how pretty this collection is and I just love how this layout turned out.  This is my little guy on his first trip to Cuba and the wonderful women that fell in love with him on the plane.

Oh does this have a lot of fun images….Josh, Josie and Maycee are all here for the fun.  I am only showing you what I was lucky to work with for the release but you absolutely have to stop by the blog and check out what everyone else has for you….oh there are a lot of fun projects!

So my image for you this month is Pressie Josh.  He’s so excited! He just cannot wait to open his present…and I paired it up with the new Birthday Sentiments…

In my ever ongoing quest to use up my stash, I came across a birthday kit that I had bought ages ago from Hot off The Press…it has a lot of fun papers and art to go with it.  I colored him with my copics and did a little paper piercing around the edges.  I added some doodlebug brads, american craft ribbon and basic grey bling.

Cardswaps Time to Shine blog hop

Hey everyone!  I’ve got a bit of a longer post for you today but well worth it!

In case you haven’t heard, there is an awesome crop going on over at Card Swaps this week. Challenges and games will be posted May 16-19, 2012 and you have until May 22, 2012 to get your projects posted to the appropriate thread. Don’t worry if you’ve not participated before, as there are many members that will be around to offer support and encouragement. Everything you need to know can be found  in the forum.  At the end of the hop,  you will be taken to the crop and we do hope you’ll join in. As you hop, collect the letter on each participants blog and unscramble them to enter into the drawing for a prize for one lucky hopper! You will be given details at the bottom of my post.

You will be unscrambling a word with a letter received at each blog you visit.. Once you collect ALL the letters, the last hostess in the blog hop will direct you to the thread in the forum where you can find all the details you need to enter the drawing. All hoppers collecting all the letters, unscrambling the word or phrase, entering the game by following the directions in the forum, and leaving feedback on EVERY blog they visit WILL be entered in to a random drawing held on May 23, 2012. ONE lucky hopper will have their name drawn and will win a prize!! So, make sure you visit every blog and find the letters. There are just so many chances to enter and win

The blog hop “theme” goes with the crop title of “Time To Shine”. We were allowed to create any project we wanted as long as it followed the criteria that it has to be able to be used for a day in which someone has their “time to shine”, such as birthdays, graduations, weddings, bridging ceremonies, communions, or whatever. Not only were we asked to create a project but we were also asked to share something about our favorite memory of a day when it was our “time to shine”.

Today I have for you this cute 50th anniversary card that I created for my in-laws anniversary.  I think 50 years together is remarkable and I can only imagine how many time to shine days they have had during those years.

Almost everything used to create this card is from my stash or a swap.  As you know I’m desperately trying to use up all the massive amount of supplies that I already have.  The DP was sent to me in a swap as was the actual image.  I wish I knew who made it because I’d love to make some more cards with it.  The image was colored using copics and then I added some stickles for my ‘shine’.  The 5 0 was cut out using my Don Juan cartridge and then I added some chunky glitter to make it stand out.  The ribbon is American Crafts (I am so into their ribbon right now!) and the pearls are just from my stash.  The sentiment is from my stash as well.

One of my favorite TIME TO SHINE days was my 30th birthday.  I was living in Red Deer away from my family and friends as I had been transferred for work.  I didn’t know anyone and I was really missing my friends.  You can’t imagine how surprised I was when a bunch of my friends came up from Calgary to visit me to help celebrate.  They spent the whole day with me and that evening they planned a surprise birthday party for me at a favorite club that I went to.  For that whole day I was a queen.  Everyone paid attention to me and my friends made it the best birthday party ever!  I have never had another birthday like it, and honestly, I doubt that I ever will again. Although it was my day to shine, I think my friends shared in the spotlight.

Now, you should have arrived here from Laura’s blog.  If not, go back and check out her blog and collect your letter. Then collect my letter and hop on.  I’ve posted the blog hop list at the bottom of this post, just in case you get lost!

NOW THE LETTER YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR FROM ME IS “L”

thanks for stopping by and HAVE FUN ON THE REST OF THE HOP!  You are heading over to Carolyn’s blog next.

Thanks a Bunch

Well here it is…day 2 of my A Card a Day challenge or as it will be referred to from now on ACAD.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this one turned out.  I’m not posting the inspiration piece this time but I did come very close to what it is.  If you have the book, take a look.

I decided, and this was a hard one for me, to crack open my Basic Grey 6×6 pack..Eva.  I have about 10 BG packs, none of which have been opened yet and I’ve had them for ages.  I just loved the colors of this one.  The brad is AC adn the ribbon from my stash.  The sentiment is Stampin Up.  The rubon across the top is from my stash as well which I just added to a punched piece of scrap cardstock.  I don’t know what the sticker flower diecut is.  I found it in a basket and decided to build this card around that.  I hope you like it.  All the edges are inked with Memento Rich Cocoa.
