MAKE IT MINE MONDAY & HUGE GIVE AWAY!!!!

Today’s card is taking inspiration from a picture from a paper crafting magazine, essentially taking someone’s else general design or idea and switching it up and making it my own.  I do this often. . .the great thing is, it never really looks like theirs, sometimes I just need a launching point for getting my creative juices flowing. While I like the pagemaps and sketches, I’m more of an in-color gal that needs more visuals to get me going on a project!  

BIG GIVE-AWAY NEXT MONDAY!
Okay ladies. . .I am trying to draw more followers to my blog and I need your help. . .so I’m giving away some new, never opened great stuff from my MemoryWorks inventory and my own stash.  To WIN, all you have to do is bring more followers from today through next Monday, April 5th to my blog by posting my blog link everywhere and getting the word out.  I’ll need a minimum of at least 10 new followers referred by each person to be eligible for the give-away.  If we have a tie. . . we’ll have an additional 24 hour contest to see who brings the first new additional follower to my blog-just one more. Just make sure that a new follower you referred leaves a comment on any day and they will need to leave your name and blog name and link so that I can go back and count each comment and verify each new follower as one of your referred.  Hope that makes sense?  I’ll foot the postage and mail out to the winner! I’ll post pictures of the goodies later this week, but here is what the WINNER will get:

TODAY’S MAKE IT MINE MONDAY PROJECT:  LIFE OF THE PARTY CARD!

This is taken from the Special Paper Crafts Magazine issue:  You Go Girl from this picture on page 155 by designer Charrie Shockey.  Her card is adorable and it is called “You Sexy Thing”.  Hope I’m not infringing on any copyright here. . .I’m giving credit to the magazine and the designer.   Love her design, but I switched my up and it came out completely different!
