And get CREATING!
Kristin gave us a GREAT challenge over at the Just Us Girls blog this week.
The Chalkboard technique. A tutorial can be found on SCS HERE.
Now, I thought "oh, this will be EASY" -- but for some strange reason, I had this creative block. I'm not sure if it was just that my week was so hectic and I'm exhausted, or what...but it took me a few attempts until I had something I was happy with.
I started out with my SU! Pastels, and I liked NOTHING that I made, then I broke out these pretty shimmery chalks, and liked it a little better...
The images, with the exception of the sentiment are from PTI's With Sympathy, and the sentiment is from PTI's Damask Designs. I like these paired together, don't you??
On a totally unrelated note -- we had our first snowfall last weekend. It looked SO pretty. I can't imagine living someplace that doesn't have 4 seasons (though let me tell you, the older I get, the less and less I like the frigid cold!) We had our town tree lighting and then we came home and had a family snowball fight -- lots of fun. Here's a great pic I got of my daughter Shannon the next day...
Hope you get to play along with us at the JUGS challenge this week -- I apologize as I haven't had a lot of time to get around to comment -- but am hoping to make up for it in the coming days, now that I have some super important Christmas projects completed and out of the way. :)
When you upload your project, post your link on the Mr. Linky on the Just Us Girls blog post -- and use Keyword JUGS11 in the online galleries.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created!
Hope you all have a GREAT weekend!
