I performed to this song by the Pointer Sisters in my third grade Lip Sync. Check out my fluorescent leotard and crimped hair...I'm the one in the middle! Yes, I was truly a child of the 80's :)
Ok, back to business...the reason I'm excited is not because of 80's music, but because I made the Design Team at Practical Scrappers! If you haven't checked out their fantastic blog, head on over there right now. It's one of the best challenge blogs for me, because it's just as the name implies...PRACTICAL! I'm so thrilled to be a part of their talented team.
The challenge for this week is to use patterned paper. So go ahead and dig deep in your stash and find something really good to show us! Then go to the Practical Scrappers blog and link your blog so we can see!
Here's my submission. I wanted to showcase several of these colorful patterns and found a card at the PaperCrafts blog that inspired my design.
I've been having lots of fun with this Carolyn Gavin paper stack I found at Michael's. Love the bright colors!
Stamp set: CTMH Thank You (my most-used stamp set)
