Breast Cancer Awareness

I'm back!  Whew the Fall is the most hectic time of the year for me between soccer, football, holidays and birthdays it's just well...crazy!  Well I'm here today with a project for our challenge at 613 Avenue Create.   The theme is always Anything Goes but this week the optional theme is CAS (clean and simple).  One of our sponsors is The Stamping Boutique  and the winner receives 4 digital images.  I've used the Ribbon and Rose image, and yes I realize this isn't the best CAS design, guess I got a little carried away  :)

That's it for now I'll be back with another post with my Melonheadz project!
Thanks for stopping by!

You Rock!

Hi everyone!

I know my posts have been few and far between  :(    It's not because I haven't been crafting because I have!  I told people at work they have to stop leaving and having birthdays!  I can't keep up!  LOL!  Between that, running 613 Avenue Create by myself, work and family...I'm going bonkers!!!  Whew...well speaking of 613 Avenue Create our challenge this week is Anything Goes and the optional theme is Party Time!  Whatever you may be celebrating works for us!  Come link up your projects HERE!  You could win prizes from our sponsors this week:

I chose to use the Guitar digi from Oak Pond Creations.  For the guitar I water colored the paper and put sea salt on it.  Love that technique but I didn't get my usual results because the humidity was 97% that day!  Ugh can say gross?  It sat in front of the fan for 2 hours and still didn't dry!  I had to dry it with the hair dryer.  Anyway, it still came out ok.  I fussy cut layered it and added some enamel dots for the knobs.  I popped it up on the base which was embossed with a Darice flames folder and sanded.  The sentiment is by Verve.

Hope you like it!  Come see out what our talented DT ladies have come up with this week!

Something for myself :)

Hi everyone!

Sorry I've been MIA but my partner at 613 Avenue Create has been on a medical leave for the last 2 months so I have been responsible for everything! So needless to say every spare minute I've had has gone to the challenge blog.  If you haven't visited us yet stop by and see what our talented ladies have come up with for our optional twist.  The challenge is Anything Goes  but the optional twist is to create something for yourself.  You know how it is you make cards and gifts for everyone and their brother but rarely anything for you! 

 I was actually able to finish my project this week, our sponsors are A Day for Daisies and Fitztown.   I chose the A Day for Daisies image Ladybug Hello because of course she reminds me of Shianne especially with the ladybugs!  I made a binder for all of my sponsor information for 613 Avenue Create Challenge #74.

Why don't you stop by and see what great projects the DT have made for themselves!
Thanks for stopping by!
