More Challenges

Happy Friday!!! *Doing the happy dance* I had to get this post done early. As you are reading this I am more than likely at my son's soon to be elementary school where he takes speech therapy. We have a meeting with his speech therapist and the elementary school's principal for a re-evaluation. Basically, in my opinion, we are going to discuss how well my son has progressed in his speech and hopefully we will be able to stop going to therapy. It is good for him and he has done wonders since going but it would be nice to have one less thing to do each week. Right now he goes twice a week for about a total of an hour. The other 3 days he either has t-ball practice or a t-ball game so having two extra days to just be able to get things done at home would be nice.

So today I am finally getting to Whimsy stamps 2nd challenge. It is to make a monochromatic project with one neutral. I know, I actually used 2 neutrals, I hope that is okay. Also, I know purple isn't really a color for boys but I just couldn't help myself. I was going to use my froggie but so wanted to ink of Connor again.

I also used the sketch from the Pink Elephant challenge. It was an interesting challenge and I love the sketch. For the Pink Elephant challenge you have until Sunday to upload your project.

I am at a loss for words right now so I guess this will be a short post. Have a great Friday and I might just see you back here tomorrow for the newest Lauren challenges.


stamps: Whimsy Baseball Connor, PTI polka dot basics, paper tray, and pond life

ink: staz-on jet black, pti plum pudding, palette lavender sachet

paper: pti jet black, guide lines II (the back), DCWV paper pack

Michael's jewelry thread, wal-mart button, and joann's eyelets. I also used an ek success border punch. Copic markers were used to color Connor.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
