Blog Candy post #1

I have been looking for some good challenges with some good motivation and have found a great challenge site called Challenge Masters.  So.....here is one of my projects I completed for a challenge.

Here is the link to that Challenge Masters.  www.challengemasters.ning.com
It is really a great site....lots of challenges to keep you motivated!!!


This is going to be a date book for next year (2011).  This challenge was to do March and since I just started I will have to go back and work on January and February to catch up.  :)

The book has some envelopes to add receipts, notes, lists, etc. in.

For this I used an ink pad and a sponge and an ink pad to add a touch of green to the background.  I attached some patterned paper to the bottom corners to create pockets after I inked the edges.  I cut out some shamrocks and cute little kiddos with shamrocks from the A Child's Year cartridge and I inked them up to add a little dimension.  I used some Smooch to the shamrocks in the childrens hands to pop them out a little and I used a Souflee pen to bring out the lines in the leaves.  I used pop dots to pop up some of the shamrocks (gotta love dimension) :)



Ok.....for the first item I am going to add to my giveaway.....I love these little tools.

How great is that date book going to be with the pockets and everything! I could use something like that for when I go to WDW, thanks for the idea!

I have never seen those little Fiskar tools before! They look really cool!
