A Fun Challenge

Hey y'all!

How's it going?  Did you have a good weekend?  I can't believe it's Monday already, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised, with as fast as the year is going.  I didn't do anything but pack this weekend. 

Anyway, I've got a fun post for you today.  My super awesome friend Rochelle and I were speaking about trying to keep our mojo flowing, while FYI is on hiatus, and decided that we'd do a just for fun challenge.  I'm not sure how often we'll do them, but there will be a couple, at least.  So for our challenges, I'm choosing a photo for inspiration, and she's choosing what elements we both have to use.  Our first challenge includes chevron stripes, tags, and this inspiration photo.

Is this not stunning?!  I absolutely LOVE this photo!!  Talk about inspiring.  I would love to witness something so amazing, in real life.  Here is the card I created using the elements and photo.

I know the tag looks a bit bare, but it's going to be personalized when I give the card to the recipient.  The tag is actually removable, and can be used as a bookmark.  I have a feeling I know who'll get this card, along with a gift card to Barnes & Noble, come November. :)

You really should go over and check out what Rochelle made.  She's got such an amazing style, and I LOVE everything she makes.  It's nothing short of gorgeous, as usual.  HERE is her blog link.  Also, if you want, you can join us for our just for fun challenge.  Just paste the link to your projects in the comments section. 

All for me today.  I'm off to work, and then more packing tonight. Yay! lol
