Week 3 of Altered Pages Challenge

For week 3 the challenge was to make a card, a tag and a layout. I love fairies, so my card has fairies, my tag has a lovely lady and my layout shows two of my children at the old schoolhouse at Silver Dollar City. Silver Dollar City is one of our favorite places to visit.

My daughter's first concert and ISC Challenge #8

Last night I took my daughter, Kyra, and a couple of her friends to the Jonas Bros concert. It was at an outdoor ampitheater here in St. Louis and we had lawn seats along with thousands of other people. My daughter and her friends had a good time, so that makes it all worth while.

In addition to galivanting around to concerts (my husband and I also went to the Muny and saw Miss Saigon on Monday night--a great show) once again I am participating in the ISC stamping challenge. The exciting news is that I was the winner for Challenge #7! See MOO cards below. That means I get a free stamp sheet! For Challenge #8 you had to make a card using one of the techniques Tim Holtz uses on his blog. I did the faux bleaching technique using ISC stamps.

Altered Pages Design Team Contest

Altered Pages is running a contest to fill two design team positions. A challenge is posted every Monday for 4 weeks. Participants complete the challenge and load their entry into the AP gallery. Week one was to alter something. Week two was to make an inchie for every letter of your name and then use the inchies to decorate something. I did ATC's.

ISC challenge #7

Okay, I can't quite believe I'm here in blogland. When I first heard about blogs my reaction was "why would anyone want to do this and why would anyone else care?". Oh well, things change. It's my desire to participate in Innovative Stamp Creations weekly challenges that has finally pushed me over the cliff...I mean edge. If you haven't checked out their stamps, please do so. The title really does say it all, they have a lot of interesting and original designs. This is my first attempt at Moo cards.
