More Chicago pictures!!



Wow... is it really Friday already?!! Where did the week go?! Well... we have a new challenge for you over at Frosted Designs! Our very own Debbie created this one and you won't want to miss it!! Debbie would like you to pick 5 of the 10 items on her list and add them to your project!! I have to tell you... this was so much fun!! I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to get 5 items on and it came to no surprise to me when I ended up with 8 items!!


Here is your list:
(Remember, you only need to use 5 items!!)




1. Punch or punches
2. Felt
3. Ribbon
4. Pink, blue or purple
5. Flowers
6. Banner
7. Bird
8. Buttons
9. Butterflies
10.Glitter

The only two items I did not include were the bird and buttons!!  And check out this banner.... isn't it tooo cute?! I love all the flowers on it!!


Now it is your turn!! Head over to Frosted Designs and see what the Design Team did for you.. they are all pretty amazing!! And then we would love to see what you can do!! Remember, each time you enter, you earn a chance to win the Lucky Girl kit!! I have this kit and I can tell you... it has some pretty serious yummy stuff in it!! I am also entering this into two other challenges....
Practical Scrappers (summer theme)
Wee Memories (Butterflies)

I also need to finish up some past business!! Getting ready for this move is starting to really get in the way of my blogging!!

(As for the update, right now we have exactly 2 weeks to be completely out of our house and have not officially purchased one yet! We do have an offer on one finally so say a prayer that it will be accepted so we can move forward with our move!!)

A few weeks ago, I hosted the challenge at Frosted Designs asking you to use an arrow in your project. AND I had a side challenge on my blog for those that entered a project and left me a message on my blog!! So.... if

and


would contact me at barbcraft@comcast.net and give me their addresses, I will be sending them an American Crafts scrapbooking kit!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!!

You are such a sweetheart my friend! I appreciate the shout out so much.
Let me say I am impressed you are so calm for having to move in two weeks. I would be a crazy woman running around trying to over plan everything.
I so miss the days when my daughter loved American girls, it didn't last long and she was always more interested in the books.
Adorable layout with fun memories. Just finished my layout and was also surprised how fast the items added up.
Thanks sweetie!

You're right, the banner is too cute!
I love this pink strip. Is it felt? Very lovely.
I think I'll try to join you with this fun challenge.
I absolutely adore you for being so calm so close to moving! I would have been on the edge not having new home to go to...
Good luck!!!!

Sooo Cute!!! I loveee that banner! I recently got a banner die in the mail, but I haven't had time to use it yet. Your page is making me want to go home and put it to use right away! It looks so fun on the page!
I also really love pattern paper and the pink border, and obviously you can never go wrong with butterflies, of course! :)
