I hate to admit it, but I am not fond of Anything But A Card challenges. It isn't that I don't like to make things besides cards or that I don't have lots of other ideas besides cards...but the idea that I can't make a card freezes the part of my brain that allows creativity to surface. That's my assessment of the problem anyway. I worked through it this week and this is what I came up with for the Sassy Cheryl Anything But a Card Challenge:
It is a little tag book I am going to complete this weekend for one of my friends. I am trying to get her to forgive me for forgetting her birthday this past Monday. I still have 3 of the little tag pages to complete, but I am going to have to get some shells today at the craft store to finish it off. I will give it to her when I take her to lunch (another forgive me ploy) this week. I have to admit I am birthday challenged. I have got to get a good plan together to correct this flaw!!! Tell me your plan because the older I get, the worse it gets. I have tried writing them down in a book and then I can't find the book or don't look in it. Remembering is out of the question completely! Bad me! I am entering the pages with Sassy Cheryl images on them in the Sassy Cheryl Anything But A Card Challenge (you still have a day or two to enter if you haven't already). The little girl on the beach is from The Girl Has Sass Collection and the girl with her arms wide open is Just Be Yourself Sally (you can get her from Sassy Cheryl or Squigglefly). The flowers I used on the tags are from The Paper Studio, handmade from MFT rolled roses die, and The Piece by Piece Etsy store (one of my favorite new places for flowers and little trinkets). I covered the kraft tags with old dictionary pages and used Modge Podge to make them more durable as my dictionary pages are starting to tear really easy as the book they are coming from is almost 100 years old (it was badly damaged and I got it for $1 at a thrift store).
Hope your weekend goes well. I am off to get ready for breakfast with my parents and then dorm décor shopping with Allie - only two more weeks until move-in day. She is sooo excited.
