Award winner for most clever title? ME for "This Blows!"



This layout is for lots of stuff.  First, it's for the Imaginisce blog challenge to use the above picture as inspiration.  The sweet treats made me think of one of my favorite nicknames for Princess, "Cupcake."  You had to use all three of the colors, so even though there is no yellow in the supplies I used, the photo has yellow walls in it.  Second, this is for the Mission to Create challenge to use the sketch above, lace, mist, and pastels.  I used the white smooch mist, which you can see in the picture with the closeup of the banner.  My new crop "friend" said it looked like snot.  But she also calls Glue Dots "Glue Darts," so what does she know?  Third, this is for the ScrapFIT challenge to scrap about a dream.  I hope the people who read the journaling on this realize I was aiming for a splash of tongue-in-cheekiness.  Otherwise, someone's gonna call the loony bin, and you won't hear from me for awhile because I hear it's hard to blog whilst wearing a straight jacket.  Fourth, this is for the Paper Variety challenge to use a cupcake.  I painted Maya Road chipboard and then added some glitter sprinkes.  This is also for the color challenge at Challenge Masters.

I LOVE the title of this one.  It's about the time my "bestie" Stephanie convinced me to go into one of those hurricane machines.  The pictures are priceless; I look more troubled as you go from left to right.  This was inspired by Julie Dudley's layout at Scrap Jacked.  I love how she split her die cut paper in half to frame her photo.
