FIRST CHALLENGE FOR STAMP SOMETHING!!!

Happy Friday everyone! Today the first challenge will be posted on the new Stamp Something website of which I proud to say I am a design team member for! The first challenge has a very fitting theme - make something about "firsts". Make sure you get on over there and get all the details because you don't want to miss out on the challenge. To help you along, here is the page I did for the challenge: it is about my son's first friend - his Teddy Ruxpin! Zach loved that bear and took it everywhere he went including to bed! This is my favorite picture of my little guy and his friend and I thought this would be a great challenge to use to scrap him! Everything I used to make this page is Stampin' Up! I had such fun with this challenge and you will too! Here is the full recipe for my page:


Page Recipe:
Paper - Brilliant Blue card stock, So Saffron card stock, Ruby Red card stock, Cutie Pie Designer Series Paper, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper
Stamp Sets - Best Friends Alphabet Upper, Sweet Celebrations
Inks - Brilliant Blue and Summer Sun Classic Stampin' Pads, Brilliant Blue and Ruby Red Stampin' Write markers, Black Stazon
Accessories - 1 1/8, 1 1/4, and 1 inch Circle Punches, Corner Rounder Punch, Coluzzle Circle Cutter, Build-a-brads, Jumbo Pewter Eyelet, So Saffron narrow grosgrain ribbon, stampin' up SAB rub-ons, Stampin' dimensionals


So, I am leaving this morning for my weekend crop and won't be back until Sunday! So, because I don't want you to miss me too bad (lol!) I am going to have a little blog candy for ya! All you have to do is leave me a comment here telling me you uploaded your take on the challenge to the Stamp Something blog and you will be entered! What are you going to receive??? Hey, have you ever been disappointed in my blog candy? You will have to wait and see - teehee!!! But I can promise you this - it will be yummy!!! So, what are you waiting for?? Get to workin' on that challenge, go upload it to the site, and leave a comment here letting me know you did! Don't have a blog? Well, send Erin or Denise a copy of your challenge entry and let me know you did! And remember, it does not have to be a scrapbook page, it does not have to be Stampin' Up!, it can be anything you want to stamp that represents a first to you!! Happy Stampin' and I will see you on Monday!!!!

My girls had a Teddy Ruxpin, too....and Grubby!! We wore out one and had to buy another(mostly because my oldest daughter kept grabbing his mouth while he talked and sang). Have fun at your crop!

Have a great day!
