Pattie's Creations Design Challenge--Anything Goes #40

Well, once again, I forgot to post my project for the new challenge at Pattie's Creations!  This has been a VERY crazy week for us!  On Monday night, my oldest son (who was visiting for his spring break) broke his arm; on Thursday, my husband retired from the Marine Corps, and we had family here until this morning.  CRAAAAZY!!!!!

The theme for Challenge #40 at Pattie's Creations is ANYTHING GOES!!  Please remember that you MUST use a digital or stamped image on your creation.  The design team was given some images from this week's sponsor, Dude Time Doodles, to choose from, and I chose to use Corset II.

I added some pearls for the buttons on the corset and again along the ribbon.  The sentiment is from a stamp set I found in my stash.

Since the theme is such an EASY one, we hope to see LOTS of entries!!!  Be sure to get your projects (with a digi or stamped image!) linked up at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge by April 4.  Happy scrapping!

Pattie's Creations Design Challenge--Tags #39

Have I mentioned lately that I LOOOOOOVE Fridays?!?!?  ESPECIALLY the Friday before my birthday (which is Monday!), which just HAPPENS to include a visit to my WONDERFUL hair stylist, Meredith!

It's also time for a BRAND NEW CHALLENGE at Pattie's Creations!  Challenge #39 is all about tags, and the DT has some GREAT projects posted for you on the challenge blog.  I used Pattie's image "Sunflowers Vase" for my tag:

I printed the image twice and colored both with my Crayola colored pencils, then used pop dots to adhere them together and add some dimension.  The sentiment is from Studio G, the ribbon is from my stash (which I bought to match the papers), and the papers are from Bo Bunny's Forever Fall line.  This is also my entry for the Progressive Challenge #13 at CDAC.

We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Don't forget that you MUST use a digital or stamped image on your creation.  Be sure to get your tag linked up on the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge blog by Thursday, March 22.  Good luck, and happy scrapping!

Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza!

Welcome to the Our Favorite Things Blog Candy Extravaganza!  You should have just come from Robin's blog. If you are just joining the hop and want to start from the beginning, please start at Dena's blog.  This is going to be an amazing event!  Many of you are familiar with Oprah Winfrey's famous "Favorite Things" show where audience members walk away with an array of fabulous gifts.  It was always so fun to see how excited the audience members got with each giveaway.  Well, if you've always wished you could sit in the audience of one of those show tapings, we have the next best thing for you!

Each participant in this hop is going to share a favorite of hers.  It could be a craft-related item or a non-craft-related item.  In addition to that, each blogger is giving away blog candy!  This means you have a chance to win at every stop!

Each blogger has her own rules for winning her blog candy, so be sure to read the rules on each blog for a chance to win.

Without further ado, here is the project I created for this blog hop:

One of my favorite things to work with on my projects is flowers!!!  I picked up these beautiful turquoise flowers a couple of weeks ago, and I just LOOOOOVE them!!!!  The stamped sentiment and image are from a stamp set sent to me by my lovely friend, Suzanne (Thanks, Suz!).  I also used one of the sentiments from the stamp set and some clear embossing powder to emboss the background on the ecru cardstock.  

My blog candy is a stamp set, which I unfortunately do not have a picture of at the present time.  I'll try to get one and update the post here with that picture.  My rules for the blog candy giveaway are simple:
     *leave a comment on this post along with a way to contact you if you win
     *tell me what your favorite thing is
     *become a follower if you like what you see here (not required)
That's it!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed what I shared with you today.  Since I'm the last stop along the way, I'll say happy hopping, and good luck!
