HOW EXCITEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

123 Challenge is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!
1st JUNE 2010...Be There!

OK Ladies! Here we go!
The 123 Challenge for June will be based on:
1 ONE WORD
2 ONE DOMINANT COLOUR
3 ONE MYSTERY CRITERIA
A combination of the 3 Criterias will be announced on the 1st of JUNE. I have a few of the old Creative Team Members coming back - with the chosen criterias to be uploaded and inspire you on the 1st.
The Rules:
The WORD can be used in the title, in the journalling or ANYWHERE on the page/project as long as it's VISIBLE and a feature - we don't want it HIDDEN it has to be seen!
The Dominant Colour MUST be dominant - you must use it so that it is the MOST NOTICEABLE of the colours you use on your page!
The Mystery Criteria will be given by either one of the Creative Team, Myself or even maybe a Guest or Contributor - submit your ideas to challenge_123@hotmail.com
We have 3 Websites donating - so three chances to WIN! More details coming shortly!
Want to be on the Creative Team? I will be keeping an eye out for the next few months or so, to see who regularly contributes AND is inspirational and most creative! We will be limiting the number on the Creative Team as I am wanting to "keep it simple" this time around....
Sound good?

Hope to see you there!!!
I can't wait!!!!!!!

Challenge #2 from this poster:
I love this poster!! We also needed to include:
Layering, handmade flower and a butterfly.................

Challenge #3 inspiration from this poster:
we also needed to include: minimalist/white space, bright colours and one word title!!!!
Here is my LO:
Challenge #4 from the TWIGHLIGHT movie poster!!!.........
the criteria: Black & white and only one other colour, a die cut base, and srtip journalling!!!!!
Ok here is mine...........
I'm not thrilled with it........and it's a bit hard to read the title.....You Look So Pretty Nan.........and I took the photo on a cardboard background......so doesn't really give it justice....:-(
I spent most of yesterday scrapping......and I'm loving paint ATM!!!!
The only problem is waiting for it to dry.....so I have 2 or 3 LO's going at one time LOL!!!!

On Mothers' day Charm and family invited us for a lovely lunch, (Ashan made the Curry Chicken Sri Lankan style), rice, salad and Dahl...... and to top it off we had yummy Butterfly cakes for dessert....

I love this card I got from Charm.......
AND..........from the Grandies, I got a really, really pretty glasses chain....(which they bought from the School Mother's Day stall)......(I think Charm must have remembered me complaining about the old one I had)
and the best part is my glasses don't fall off!!!LOL
