Flaunt It Friday's Design Team Entry - Mini Monsters Skull

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all are having a great week and have some fun plans for the holiday weekend.  Over at Flaunt It Friday's, this week's challenge is to use the skull image on page 65 of the Mini Monsters cartridge to create a non-Halloween project.  After racking my brain for a while, I went with a pirate theme and created a box with my Martha Stewart scoreboard to hold some tasty goodies (aka "pirate booty").

A Child's Year - Who Loves You

If you have been following the news, you have probably seen the stories about the snow storms that have hit the southern states and the crippling effect its had on Georgia. Due to the ice, the majority of the state has been home bound since Monday.  Since I haven't been able to do much, I broke out one of the new cartridges that I was able to snag at Michael's over the weekend - A Child's Year.  I've been eyeing this cart for the longest time and decided to pick a cut at random and make a card.  I ended up with the image of a mother and child and threw a quick card together. I think the card still needs a little something else, maybe a prima flower or a button; however, I'm not sure what.  Nevertheless, I may use this card for Mother's Day.

Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop!  If you are here from Sharon's blog  then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start from the beginning please click here to go directly to Flaunt It Friday's.

For this week's challenge we were asked to flaunt the Hello Kitty with Airplane on Page 65 from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge.  I decided to make a layout with a picture from an Atlanta Braves game a friend and I went to this summer. I thought the plane and title were a fun play on words.  I inlcuded a journaling tag behind the photo.


Now for my second project, we got to choose any cut from Hello Kitty Greetings; and I chose the Halloween image on page 70 to make a very quick and simple Thank You card!



What's a blog hop, without a little blog candy....
