I think Spring is almost here!! My daffodils are sprouting & some plants are trying to sprout some barely there buds, but they ARE there! I can almost smell the scent of spring in the air now.
I happened to jump over to Reminisce's blog to check out the latest & greatest going on there there & they have a fun little contest going on right now! All you have to do is come up with a name for each of the 3 monkeys in their latest Monkey Business 2009 line (like the ones in my projects shown in the post below this one!) I tried (along with all the others before me) in sending an email to address given, but it's not functioning properly, so I posted mine in the messages below their posting, along with everyone else. The winners will get $50 in Reminisce prize package!!! That's a lot of bananas to scrap about!!! Some of the names already posted are pretty funny & you can tell some named them after their kids. How sweet is that or how crazy are your kids? LOL!!
OK, now for a bit of inspiration for those of you looking for some. A dear friend of mine, by the name of Kelly Crowl, from my local scrapbook store (TMZ) design team, came up with a sketch challenge with a chance to win what will most likely be a FABULOUS RAK from her!
Here is my interpretation of the sketch - oh, and the added twist was that you could ONLY use pastel colors on your project. The two photos after the page are close-ups of the flower details & a stenciled shadow effect I created with the cut out of the butterfly above it. Now, I realize that once you get this thing in a page protector that you ain't gonna see that hidden shadow detail, but my plan is to cut out slits in the page protector for each wing so that they can be lifted up to see that little bit of interesting detail - or get the wings ripped off from all the lifting they'll be getting. LOL!! I just couldn't resist doing it, so there it is.
Well, it's been a beautiful, sunny & warm day today, but I've chosen to take the day to myself & stay inside & get caught up on some things that otherwise wouldn't have been able to get done because kids & husbands are inside & wanting my attention.
God Bless & have a great day!
