Little C’s Design Team Weekly Challenge #2

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I have just been accepted into Little C’s Design Team!! Woooot! My first designing gig!

Little C’s owner Jen asked us to use this sketch from Juliee Tilman’s Poetic Artistry blog, and use a Whipper Snapper stamp (that you can purchase at Little C’s, btw). Since I’m still waiting for my design package of goodies from Jen, I used papers and embellishments already in my stash:

Tuxedo Kitten

Stamps: Tuxedo Kitten, Fuzzy Mouse by Whipper Snapper, Sentiment by Hero Arts
Others: Silhouette level 2 paper pack by Close To My Heart, ribbon, Just Blooms paper flower, big brad from Close To My Heart, die cuts by Sizzix

Check out what the other design team members made:

And my family and I have recently gone to the Hilton Waikoloa on the Big Island of Hawaii.

See me? The feet, lol.

So now I’ve played Guitar Hero 3 so much that I gave myself a little arthritis…can you believe it? Just in one knuckle. My doctor said, “No more of that ‘Hero’ game,” so I’ve laid off for a month. But look at what I got now (the box, not the cat)! The only solution for the guitar deprived – play left-handed. I’m serious. I started playing left-handed. Am I a total addict or WHAT? And Jax says,
RockBand Box
“The box is more fun than the game.”

Yesterday we went to Bayfest, a local carnival. This is the first time my daughter rode “Pharaoh’s Fury” with my son (both in the very back). She loved it so much she must have rode it another 5 or 6 times!
