Challenge #2 on The Corrosive Challenge Blog

Good Morning! Happy Sunday to you! It's a busy day today, so I have to post this quickly. Today is my oldest son's 14th birthday. Ack!! So tonight we're going out for our birthday date, just he and I and I have lots to accomplish before I can go.

OK onto the challenge. I loved this challenge even though I had difficulty with one of the colors. Here's my contribution to the challenge:

I used a white base that I embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder. Then a Certainly Celery mat. The image is Rachelle Ann Miller (Lily & Milo Collection) called Enjoy the Moment. This is such a sweet image all about friendship and to me friendship is one of those big gifts from God. I colored the image with my Stampin' Write markers. I'm still trying to get as good as others I've seen. I matted it to Pretty in Pink and then punched out flowers with the Spring Bouquet punch from Pixie Pink and white. Pixie Pink has to be one of my lowest colors on the favorite scale.

This picture to the right is Janet's inspiration. It's her PJ's!! I love this idea of using a favorite thing to inspire creativity. This is just like Joni's challenge we had a couple of weeks ago to use a purse for inspiration. And what other fabulous thing can you come up with than a comfy pair of pajamas!!

I hope you decide to take the challenge. Visit the challenge blog and follow Janet's directions. Also, don't forget to visit the design team's blogs and leave them a little love. They work hard for you. And I think I am the only American! This is so fun - so much perspective.

Have a super day!!
