Friendly Challenge

My friend Jessy (she is also my DT for Pixie Dust Paperie) contacted me weeks ago, she is hosting this Friendly Challenge, I am supposed to make a card/project based on this inspiration photo.




Photo source - www.lennoxx.com


I thought I am going to get out of my comfort zone and try something without a vintage image, without my favorite crinkled ribbon, and not so much of layering, so here it is -



Not my usual style huh? But I thought it is good to try new things once in a while.



Here's a list of participant, you can hop around to see what they created for this fun challenge

Day 10 (September 8, 2010) ~ Dream

I always dream to have a baby girl's room just like this, too bad that I didn't have a chance in my new house, my 2 teenagers preferred to have posters of Beatles and Rolling Stones in their room. : (




Day 11 (September 9, 2010)

No words needed....




Day 12 (September 10, 2010)


One of my favorite pass time, a bowl of fresh berries and a note card to write to a friend...
 

Day 13 (September 11, 2010) ~ Eiffel Tower - Faux or Real?


Day 14 (September 12, 2010) ~ My Azure Sky

One great thing about living in Vegas is, when you look up, it is always the big blue sky......
