My Girlfriends Did It! 35

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, August 13, 2009 @ 7:14 AM | , , , , ,

Good Morning Girls! Thanks for sharing my excitement with me over the past few days! :) Someone emailed me asking if I was a "behinds the scene" designer? I had to giggle at that one! :) I am merely a hobbyist who loooves to papercraft & share what I do :) Maybe one day, I will represent someone other than myself :) For now, "I am an equal opportunity hobbyist" {as once stated by my Cyber Girlfriend, Jen Johnson} :) One of the many things I think is unique about Papertrey Ink is their Monthly Guest Star Stamper Contest! If you are interested in being their guest for a month and participating in ALL the excitement that comes with it, give it a try!!!! I personally don't know of any other stamp company that offers their customers the opportunity to participate like that?! I recommend participating in as many challenges that are available to us as stampers / papercrafters. There are people out there in blog-land that put a lot of time & effort into managing these challenge sites & offering us AMAZING opportunities! You can't be afraid to put your creations out there! :) My Girlfriends Did It!

My three girlfriends / co-workers / bosses returned to college to complete their Bachelor's in the Science of Nursing as adult learners at the ages of 37, 48 & 53. All working full-time, being Moms & Wives!!! :) This calls for a celebration in my book!!! :) My color inspiration comes from Lauren's MTTI 05. The colors that I found best to fit her cuuute vibrantly colored inspiration photo were SU Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion & Blush Blossom. The sketch layout comes from Taylor's Sketch Challenge #77 and this week's Pile it On Challenge #10 challenges us papercrafters not to use ANY patterned paper on our project (in combination with at least one other challenge from anywhere else in blog-land). For some awesome inspiration, click on ANY of these sites for your pleasure & to challenge your creativity give any 1 or all 3 of the challenges a try! You just NEVER know! :) LOL Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Ingredients Used:

Paper: SU Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Blush Blossom & Whisper White

Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Circles, Rectangles & Circle dies, Cuttlebug Butterfly die & Swiss Dots EF, EK Success flower punches, Spare Parts Hardware, Offray ribbon, SU cord, Jo-Ann Crafts button, generic hemp cord
