Terrific Tuesday and a Challenge!!

Good morning, scrappers & crafters! It is another gorgeous day here in New England; quite a difference from the wild weather this weekend. Still keeping the poor people of Vermont and other areas hard hit by Irene in our prayers.

So, on a scrappy message board that I visit, they challenged us to make a layout of Irene and her impact as it was happening, based on a sketch that they posted. Thankfully, there wasn't really a whole lot of mess or destruction around our neighborhood to take pictures of and I was too chicken to get in the car and head over a couple of towns to the beach. So, what's a scrapper to do when challenged and there aren't any fitting pictures?!?! Well, since it was all over the news on every station, I decided to take pictures of the TV!!! You should have seen the look on my husband's face. (He should know me by now!)
This was the end result:


I have had that scalloped paper, letter stickers and rub on quote in my stash forever. The paper looked like a big cloud with wind going through it to me, so I thought it worked. The hurricane flags were punched with a square punch and then I added 1/2" squares to the middle of them. I embossed the middle circle with the Divine Swirls folder, added a couple of swirly stickers from my stash and - wa-la - done!

A Challenge!!

So, I was thinking yesterday that with all this new-ness, it is a good time for a challenge! I will have a nice little package posted tomorrow as the prize. Here are the deets:

Create a LO (any size) that represents "New". It could be a new baby, a new job, a new car, a new beginning, a new house, a new school .... you get the idea!

You do not have to be a follower, but we would love it if you were. :)

Entries will be due Saturday, September 10th 2011 at midnight eastern time. The winner will be chosen from a random drawing on Sunday. 


Can't wait to see what you come up with!
