Challenge #76

CHA has come and gone, and the influx of new products is making its way into our stashes. if you're like me, you're hoarding all this new product, waiting for the perfect chance to use it...then you let it sit, and discover a few months later that it's now "old" product.

well, don't let that happen. for this challenge, use up 10 new products from your stash!

have fun!

Winner for HMITM #72

I really loved everyone's layouts, and it was SO hard to choose just one, but I picked Jacynthe's wonderful page, "Une Erreur Comique."

I just love the orange and blue with the black and white, and the photo and story are priceless, plus those three circle tags add such a whimsical touch!

Challenge #73 Spring Forward

Ah, spring....

In my part of the country we are starting to see signs of spring. Trees exploding, crocus' springing, pansies blooming in planters. But, I know my friends in Cleveland just got 22 inches of snow. So obviously not all weather across the country is cooperating as nicely as Seattle weather. But anyway lets celebrate Spring this day after Daylight Savings.

Add 25 flowers to your layout and upload it to 2peas before next Monday. I'll pick one and send out a RAK next week.

Challenge #72 - Opposites Attract

They say opposites attract. Let's see if that's true...

Use all or a combination of the following:

something black and something white
add more color by finding opposites on the color wheel
something smooth and something fuzzy
something old and something new
something opaque and something transparent
something angular and something with curves

And since the date is 3/4/2008, let's add the digits, which equals 17, so use at least 17 things on your layout.

Post your layout on the thread posted at the Pub on Two Peas by next Wednesday for a little RAK (Note: I will be out of town until Wedesnday, March 12, so I'll choose one when I return.)
