Thanks to everyone who commented, participated or tried their hand at a project or photo. Let’s hope I remember to take photos today so I have some pictures to scrap!

Week 5 May 8th It’s almost my Birthday! One more week! Besides my Birthday my favorite holiday is Halloween. I also love bunnies. I found this cute card over at the Folk Art Center in Asheville, NC called Harvest Festival by Debbie Littledeer. It combines Halloween and Bunnies! People who know me from crafting and some past crafty boards my friend Janelle/Tallulah would do a puzzle swap and one year I requested Mardi Gras Bunnies. I killed them with my requests but they nailed it! I know you will nail this challenge too!

Scrappers – Scrapbook a birthday or any holiday, other than Easter, with a prominent bunny somewhere on your new as of today: LO, Card, mixed media or altered item, Oh look bunny decoupage! Remember the bunny must be going to a non-Easter related holiday!
Also, go to Flying Unicorn to play with the Glitter Challenge and Colorful Creations is having a sketch a thon and they served as a jumping off point for my LO tonight.

Stitchers – Well kinda obvious but stitch a bunny! I suppose you may be limited to whatever bunny you have on hand but if at all possible switch out some colors to make it more Halloween, 4th of July, Christmas. Oh wait I’m not crazy! Plum Street Samplers likes combining things like I do! So they’re hares not bunnies, they’re related!
Hare’s Autumn
Hare's Halloween Ohh on my wish list now!
OH and I checked the freebies! Hare’s flying on a broomstick.
I swear one day my house will just be decorated in Halloween Cross-stitch because I will never want to take them down.

Photos- a bunny if you can get it! Or holiday garb with bunny ears ;)
All items new as of today, you will have a month to post your completed project or stitchy project progress with photos of what the item will be when it’s finished!

National Scrapbook Day and Viva Las Vegas Stamps

Over at Flying Unicorn they had a NSD weekend and I just got this done a half hour before it had to be up.

I received stamps from Viva Las Vegas Stamps today in Doctor Who themed plate 925
My box was a Toffee box from Nashville Toffee company that I've had for about a year since I got it for my birthday. I managed to paint it blue by sanding and first covering with some white Picket Fence Tim Holtz daubers and then Matisse Ultra Marine when that dried. I didn't have a very dark blue card stock but I managed to cover the box and then covered the box with tissue tape. I liked the look of the black lace though so it covered up most of it! The black lace came from a Tally Scrappers kit. One thing I can't get the hang of on layers is the covering up bits! So I stamped the Weeping Liberty and Don't Blink in Colorbox blue (petal set not sure on the color) The PP is Basic Grey Periphery and I inked that in Iced Spruce distress (words and liberty also inked in faded blue jeans) I used some Tim Holts light bulbs that I picked up from Tuesday Morning for $1.99! Some black pop dots stacked up adhered liberty but I'm still waiting on the epoxy to set for the big light bulb so I couldn't put it on edge to take a better photo.

Birthday Bash Week 4

No I didn't forget, not really. I just hadn't made a page! So finally did one today.

Week 4 It’s May 1st and we’re in my Birthday Month.
Scrappers –
Use the sketch

Monochrome is the theme: yellow, purple or green. You can have a bit of neutral color like white, black, kraft/tan but most of the LO, card, altered item should be one of the three color choices.

Have a pocket or hidden journaling or a project that opens and reveals something else.
Stitchers - Over at It’s Geek to Me the Theme-a-lisous is monochrome. So stitchers may have a project they may have been picked out but, stitch a monochrome project in one of my three favorite colors: yellow, purple or green. Just for me to see on your blog :)
Photos – you guessed it something in one of my favorite colors: yellow, purple or green. I’ll take a photo altered in that hue or if you find an Iris to shoot that’ll be a bonus :)
Again projects new as of today and you have a month to post your completed project or project progress if you’re stitching (remember the pic of what it will look like)
