Starla's having a Blog Hop and Challenge!

Mark your calendars for November 6th because Starla from You Could Be Wishing On A Star, is having a Blog Hop and a Challenge!! Starla just celebrated her birthday, her one year blogaversary is coming up on November 7th and she reached 100 followers! So she decided that she wanted to celebrate in a big way.

She has lined up a bunch of fabulous ladies to help her with the hop and of course there is going to be prizes!! This is an event you don’t want to miss! So join me on November 7th in helping Starla have a “rocking” celebration!

It's a Recipe Challenge!!!

I had the honour of being asked to be a Guest Designer for NettieG’s Digital Gems Challenge. The theme for the challenge this time is a Recipe. You need to use:

1 Image

2 Flowers

3 Gems/Flatbacked Pearls

The image I got to play with is called “Emily in Mommy’s Clothes” and you can find her and all of Nettie’s other fabulous images here. I decided to go with a new fold that I found online. It’s called a Side Spring Card and you can find the tutorial here.

I used my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons to color the image and my White Gelly Roll pen for her buttons, necklace and the clasp on her purse. The paper is double sided paper called Life Patterns by Prima Patterns. The sentiment is from Nana Vic's Spiritual Word Art.

My flowers are a Mulberry paper rose by Recollections and a wonderful crocheted flower that my dear friend Sharon sent to me for my birthday. The 3 flatbacked white pearls are from Recollections.

We would love to see what all of you can come up with, so for all of the rules and details of the challenge head to NettieG’s Digital Gems Challenge Blog. And while you’re there check out what the rest of the DT has come up with.

Happy Halloween!!!

Just wanted to wish you all a "Spooktacular" Halloween. Hope that all your ghosts and goblins have a safe and fun Halloween :D

Just a reminder to all of you, that Pattie's 20% off sale is still don't want to miss out on this!! For how to get your 20% off check out Pattie's Challenge blog by clicking on the link below.

Hi everyone…well it’s time for another fantastic challenge at Pattie’s Creation’s Challenge Blog. The challenge this next two weeks is to make something with Halloween or Autumn Colors.

I was so lucky to be able to work with Pattie’s image “Wedding Cake”, that you can find here along with all of her other fantastic images. Wait till you see it…it looks so tasty! But instead of using it as a wedding cake, I used it as a birthday cake for a Belated Birthday card.
I colored it with my SU felts because I wanted the nice bright colors. I used Yellow Liquid Pearls in the center of the flowers and to hold the easel part open. The hearts around the layers of the cake were colored with my gold metallic pen.
The flowers, white pearls and leaves were from some of my wonderful friends for my birthday and the ribbon was from my stash.

You can use any digital image for your project, but if you use a Pattie’s Creations image, you will receive 2 entries for the ramdom draw. The challenge runs from now until Thursday Nov. 10 at 1:00 p.m. CST. To see all of the rules and what you can win, just click here.

Digistamps4Joy Challenge #30 - Embellish/Embellish It

Seeing Double

Hi all…can you guess what time of year it is? Lol Well, here we are at the start of another challenge from Digistamps4Joy and this time we want you to embellish using 2 identical embellishments. That’s right, it can be 2 buttons, or two bows, brads or whatever you can come up with, just as long as there are two and they are identical. The usual rules apply…you don’t have to use a Digistamps4Joy image, but we would really love to see one and if you do it doubles your chances in the random draw! How great is that?

For this challenge I was lucky enough to be able to play with a new image that will be coming to the store real soon. She was recently added for a challenge on CDAC and I was very lucky to get to work with her.

I decided to do something I’ve never done before, but have always wanted to try…I made a corner bookmark. This was so much fun to do but I'll have to get back to you on where I found the tutorial because I seem to have lost the page lol.

Can you guess what my double embellishment is? I colored her with purple glitter pen, SU felts and Prisma Scholar pencil crayons with oms. I wanted to put something on the back so I found this great sentiment from Sassy Studios and added more bats. I then finished it off with some stickles. My dd was very happy that her mom decided to give it to her…Halloween is her favourite time of year lol.

So now it’s your turn. To join in just follow the link here, and check out the rules and prizes. And while you’re there, check out what my fellow teamies have made up to inspire you…you won’t be disappointed.

Pattie's Creations Challenge #31 - Halloween

Thrice the brinded cat hath mew'd.
Thrice and once, the hedge-pig whin'd.
Harpier cries:—'tis time! 'tis time!
Round about the caldron go;
In the poison'd entrails throw.— Toad, that under cold stone,
Days and nights has thirty-one; Swelter'd venom sleeping got,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!

ALL. Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! Yup, today’s the day that I post my first project for Pattie’s Creations! And what a challenge it is! Now we all know what time of year it is…the time when little ghosts and goblins abound. And not only little ghosts and goblins, but witches too! So obviously our challenge is going to be a Halloween one! So go get all of those bats out of your belfry and come on and join us.

So for this challenge I was so lucky to be able to work with this totally fabulous image. Her name is Witch Pattieboop and you will be able to find her soon with all of Pattie’s other fantastic images at Pattie’s Shop here. I wanted to do something different for this challenge and I was so lucky to come across this wonderful tutorial for a Kleenex box cover. You can find the tutorial here.

Isn't she totally adorable? Now I know that you're all going to want to see a close up of her so far be it for me to disappoint you lol.

She sure looks like she's ready to go out trick or treating. The sentiment is from Sassy Studio. Now I had to fill up 4 sides to this box, so what better for another side than another one of Pattie's incredible images?

And who better to join Pattie on her night of trick or treating than her trusty friend Allie? The other 2 sides have Halloween sentiments on them. Here's a picture of the top of it.

So how do you join in on all the fun you ask? Well it's really simple, just make a Halloween themed project. It must have a digital image or stamped image on it. Although you don't have to use a Pattie's Creations image we would sure love to see one. For all the challenge details just click on the link here and it will bring you to Pattie's Challenge Blog. The challenge runs from now until Thursday Oct. 25th at 5 pm Central Mountain time. I hope to see all of you there. And while you're there, check out all of the incredible creations that my fellow teamies have done.
