Trail Makers Endless Love Challenge

The challenge for Trail Makers this round is to use the lyrics from Endless Love by Lionel Ritchie.  You can use as much of the song or a little as you like.  You could use it as a title, as journaling, or just a side note.  I used the lyric "I can't resist your charm" and chose to use "Your Charm" as the title.  I journaled around the paper block and photo.  I used February's Kit which is full of Pink Paislee goodness!  The only items I used aside from the kit are the Pink Paislee alphabet stickers and the American Crafts Alphabet stickers. 

My Pink Stamper is Febrary's sponsor and I used one of her wonderful sentiment stamps as a subtitle.  Here's a close-up.

Go ahead and give this challenge a try--I always get stumped on titles, and this is the perfect way to come up with an easy title-use a song lyric!

Trail Makers Recipe Challenge

I really enjoyed this Recipe Challenge at the Trail Maker's Blog. It certainly had me thinking outside the "box". I decided to alter a small, $1.00 Valentine chocolate heart box using February's kit-which as I had mentioned before, is fabulous! This altered heart box could be used to house a mini album, an accordian heart card, or to hold a gift card. Aside for using it for Valentine's Day, it could also be used for a wedding gift or for Mother's Day-another example of this kit's versatility. At any rate, here's how I followed the recipe: Lace, Ribbon, Tag, and Stamp. I decided to emphasize the word "love" by stamping it multiple times on the tag. The stamps were provided by this month's sponsor My Pink Stamper
Along with February's kit I used a small Valentine chocolate box, pearls, Glimmermist and platinum Stickles.

I challenge you to think outside the box and play along this week!

Trail Makers February Kit

I love February's kit for (Paper) Trail Makers!  I found it to be the  perfect fit for this photo of my middle daughter-who is our girly girl.   It is chock full of floral Pink Paislee goodness with beautiful coordinating embellishments ranging from Prima, ribbons, buttons, badges, and more!  It was an added bonus to get to use the stamps from our February sponsor, My Pink Stamper.  The sentiments work with this kit perfectly.  Aside from kit materials, I used an extra piece of ribbon, alphabet stickers and ink.
