LCOM Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Are you ready to get your crop on? Then join us at the LCOM forum right now for 8 sketches and lots of inspiration so you can get your groove on. We also have a tutorial on how to make an easy card organizer for you to get organized and make your own handmade cards for the year.

Here's the first card I's based off of Kimberly's sketch.  I used the secret element!

 Here's the second card I's based off of Rusha's sketch.  I used the secret element!

Here's the third card I's based off of Sandi's Sketch -I used the secret element.

And here's the sketch that I created. If you go through all the blogs you will be able to see everyone else's sketch. Better yet go to the forum and see them all in one place!

And my card to go with my sketch. Can you guess what my secret element is? If you guess my secret element and use it on your card or layout, you will get an extra point. Check out the forum or the other blogs and see who else used it. That will give you some help!

You have until January 16th at 11pm EST to complete all 8 sketches. You'll get a point for each sketch you complete and a point for each secret element you get correct. You can also get points for completing the card organizer. You don't have to use birthday theme if you don't want to. Grab this blinkie and when you are finished with them all and tell us you are finished at the forum. Winners will be announced on January 18th...a first and second prize.

Now for my RAK...all you have to do is leave a comment to be eligible. I will announce the winner here on my blog on Tuesday, January 18th.

Trailmakers Challenge

I loved the challenge this week at Trailmakers Blog.  It was to get creative and create your own embellishments!  Perfect for tightening the purse strings after Christmas.  For this challenge I created pleated flowers using coordinating paper from Basic Grey's Green at Heart line.  Plus, another penny pinching piece on my layout is using poor photos.  I printed these pictures and once printed, I realized I was out of several colors of ink-and they printed with a pink tint, then the pink ink ran out and faded into yellow.  Instead of throwing them away, I used them on this page.  I think they worked with the silly theme of the layout. 

Have a look...

Great News to Announce!
