Girls, Girls, Girls!!!!

January 20th, 2008

Girls just wanna have FUN!!! It’s time for another Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni Reunion Day.  This time our theme is GIRLS!  Think Bella, Hanna, Ronnie, Elzy, Rubber Romance, etc. etc.  There is always one required element and one restriction to make it a little more interesting.  Today’s requirement is “something sweet” and the restriction is no standard (4.25″ x 5″) cards.  I can hardly wait to see what everyone came up with.  Here’s mine.

Ummmm…do you think I went a little crazy with ribbon?  LOL!  Just living up to my motto – More is More!!!  This cute little notebook came from the Dollar Bin at Michael’s and started out looking like this –

dda-girls-bare-journal-jami-custom.jpgI just loved that pink old fashioned wall paper background, but move over Mary Engelbreit I had some decorating to do!  My Girl image comes from Denami Designs – Mimi & Maddie.  I have loved Denami for many years and can never understand why we don’t see more of them.  Of course the sentiment is tongue in cheek (so don’t get offended!) “If we can’t laugh at ourselves, let’s make fun of someone else!”  I have a really sweet sentiment that goes with this image, but I came across this less-than-sweet one in some stamped images from one of our stampin’ buddies get-togethers and I just had to use it. It cracks me up.  I can’t for the life of me remember who owns this stamp or what company it’s from – so friends, if this is yours please leave a comment and let me know.

The main image was stamped with Palette Hybrid Noir Black ink on shimmer white cardstock and colored with Copics.  I was so thrilled that I was able to color this with my very very limited number of colors.

Obviously I didn’t make a standard size card so I followed the restriction and for the “something sweet” you can see the girls are enjoying a tray of sweet treats with their tea.  :)

You’ll want to see all the DD/DDA offerings for this challenge – click here to see them in the SCS gallery.

Speaking of girls, have you seen the new Elzybells Friendship release?  Oh my goodness…once again I am in love!  I think I actually like these even better than the Winter and Holiday releases.  I want them all!  Did you see the one called “Bossy”?  That is so me!  LOL!  Of course with my huge pile of brand new SU sets plus the new eP Cupcake set I soooooo do not need to be buying stamps right now.  Hmmm….maybe I’ll ask for some of them for my birthday next month (Honey – are you reading this?)

Also on the subject of girls – have you been watching “Miss America – Reality Check” on TLC?  I am completely hooked on this show!  I’m somewhat of a reality show junkie anyway (currently hooked on Celebrity Apprentice and Project Runway too), but Reality Check is such a surprising show – the actual Miss America contestants having their pagent world turned on it’s ear.  A genius idea really.  People who have had no interest in Miss America for many years (like me) will certainly be tuning in to the pagent this year!  If you get a chance check out the show.

Don’t forget that you have until 4pm Pacific today (Sunday) to upload entries for my eP Birthday Enesemble Challenge (see below) and Taylor’s Cupcake Challenge.  It’s a super fun and easy way to get your name entered for a fabulous prize!

Happy Sunday and thanks for stopping by!

    Love Mom
