Purple Cows Color Challenge

The challenge was to make a project using the colors purple, white, and black! Purple Cows posted inspiration photos and I got my idea from this one:

  I had a lot of fun with this project!  Here is my take:

I decided to keep my design very simple because the zebra print stands alone lol. 

~The zebra print paper is from Paper Studio and was inspired by the rug in the pic.
~The Swirly Heart Flourish is from Paper Crafting World
Love their cute files!! It was inspired by the swirly material in the chairs.
~The Bling on the flourishes is from my stash and was inspired by the top of the tables!

Have a Scrappy Happy Day!

Crafty Friends Who Care Blog Hop~Day 1

Welcome to the Crafty Friends Give Blog Hop.
We are so glad you could join us for Day 1 of this very special hop. The mission of this blog hop is to raise awareness about bone marrow donations to help Leukemia patients.

Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at to be a bone marrow donor. And why are we doing this your might ask? To help a friend a fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match. You can see her story at

Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant). You can donate to Liz at All of the money donated will go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.

And we have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop.
Our sponsors have all donated prizes to this hop. In order to be eligible for one of  these prizes you must comment on every blog in this hop! There are other requirements for the sponsors so please see Liz's blog post for more details.

If you are coming from Ashley's Blog, you are right on track. If you just came across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Liz (

We had to go with a friend or thinking of you theme. I chose to make a wall hanging for my best friend, Nikki. We are so much alike that it is scary at times! The quote I chose fits us perfectly!!


I cut out a 5 inch Zebra Print circle (Paper Studio ooh! La! La! Stack)
Then I gathered the pink ribbon onto the edge of it.
I cut the Flower Frame out with Make The Cut. I went around the edge with my star dust pen.
The quote I printed out using Corel Draw and Harrington font.
The flowers and bling centers were from my stash! 

It was very simple and easy to make! The funny part is that my friend Nikki was hanging out with me in my scrap room while I made it! Her favorite colors are black and pink and she was in love with it!! She will be so excited when I give it to her LOL! I fibbed and made her think I had to give it away to someone! :)

Pink Cricut What are You up to? & My Challenge......

I am teaching a class for some local scrapbooking gals and they wanted to do a valentine's day layout. So here is what I came up with!

I thought it turned out pretty cute!! I must say once again that I will be very glad when I get a better camera because mine is taking some VERY bad pictures!!

Left side:
 Right Side:

 I designed the rosebuds, mailbox, title, and envelopes on MTC. The hearts are the CM heart punch.

Across the world wide web today scrapbookers and paper cafters are challenging them selves to create a Project A Day!!  There are groups that you can pay to join but thought it would be fun just to gather up my friends to challenge ourselves to do this. So I started a Facebook Group so that we could upload our creations and inspire each other to do a layout or paper project everyday in February. You can find it here if you would like to give it a try!

We would love to have you!!

Have a Scrappy Happy Day!
