Are You Looking For A Challenge?

Well the Dream Girls have done it again!! This week's challenge is going up in a bit, but I wanted to give you all a head start because you're definitely going to want to participate in this one. Our challenge to you is to scrap about a super power, this can be one that you wish you had or you can take a special ability that you have, turn it into a super power and scrap it! For a little added fun, your LO MUST include rub-ons and you MUST use a punch. This is your chance to go all out and just have fun!!!! Click on the link above to see what the Dream Girls have created! If this isn't enough to motivate you, then I'm sure the prize donated by our fabulous sponsor, My Acrylic Album certainly will! Dee has generously donated 2...yes 2 acrylic albums for this challenge! I told you this would get you motivated! Aren't these just the cutest?

The flower acrylic album has 6 pages and measures approximately 6" x 6", includes 1 silver colored book ring
The crown acrylic album measures approximately 5" x 8" and includes 6 pages. Included are two silver colored book rings.
OOOOOH, I can hear your mojo juices flowing as you're reading this post! LOL!
Here's my take on the challenge, it's titled "My secret life as Wonder Woman"...cute, right? I know you can all relate to that! The photo flips open to reveal my hidden journaling. It took me forever to complete this LO because of all of the manual work I had to do. The starbursts are hand drawn as is the WW symbol. I was sooooo lucky to have found that Wonder Woman paper by Creative Imaginations a few months ago in the clearance bin at my LSS! This picture (which I'll explain) was taken last year and I knew I would eventually scrap it. Lucky, lucky me!

OK, now to explain the photo...last September, my twin niece and nephew decided that they wanted to have a theme party for their birthday. The theme they chose was superheros and villains- all of the guest had to come dressed up as either a superhero or a villain and being the fun aunt that I am, I dressed up too! I figured it would be super fun to dress up, something I hadn't done in years and it was, plus I figured I could use the costume again for Halloween the following month, which I did. Can I tell you that I felt so sexy as Wonder Woman even though I was about 10 weeks pregnant with Xander? Anyhoo... here are close-ups of the details


Here's a quick LO that I whipped up about my baby boy and his faces! I absolutely looooove Kaiser papers! This color combination sings to my heart! You know what else I love about this? Well beside the cutie pie, are the chipboard buttons that I used for flower centers. They were created by the very talented Ken- most of you may know her by the screen name Babydoll1. She sells them, along with some other really cute stuff in her esty shop, Cutesy Glam Designs
There goes that lace again! You can find those at savvy n sassy.

A card I whipped up about a week or so ago. I haven't been to school in a few years, but everytime August and September roll around, I get real nostalgic for back to school which is how this card came about. It also reminds me that this time next year Donovan will be starting kindergarten....oh where's the kleenex? I used Junkitz papers that I bought when they had their warehouse sale.
As you can see I adore those velvet letters by American Crafts, but I hate the fact that they don't stick!!!!!! I ended up having to put glue dots on them because the velvety flocking gets on the adhesive backing and messes up the stickiness. UGH!

Last but not least- here's a quick little tag that I whipped up using My Little Shoebox's A little Birdie Told Me line. I can't say enough about how cute the birdcages on these papers are! I love it!!!!!!

TFL!
