Sparkle Creations Inspiration Challenge

Sunday, September 5, 2010

Wow, 3 posts in one day.  Scroll down to see what else I've posted for today.  I didn't get a chance to play in last week's challenge over at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps but definitely wanted to this week.  Here's the inspiration photo for the challenge.

I derived my inspiration from the lanterns and the greens and browns in the photo.  I decided to paper piece Rin and am really happy with the results.  I also tried the out of the box technique with my nesties.  Here is the tutorial that I used.  How fun.  I also used this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday.  My card also fits this week's challenge at A Crafty Little Place which is anything goes and the challenge at Basic Grey Challenges which is to paper piece.

Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey Cappella

Stamps:  Sparkle Creations Lantern Rin, PTI Tea for Two Additions
Other:  Nesties, MS border punch, PTI and CTMH buttons

How is your weekend going?  I'm happy to report that ours is going splendidly. We had a wonderful time watching Christopher's soccer team yesterday win 6-0.  And my boy scored a goal.  I don't think he scored any last season so it was thrilling to see him improve so much and be able to get one past the goalie.  He also lost a tooth yesterday afternoon.  He hadn't lost any since March and that one was only because he got hit with a bat.  I can't remember if I blogged about that or not?  Anyway, that one definitely wasn't ready to come out because there's still a big gaping hole on the bottom of his mouth and now with his lost tooth yesterday, he's got another hole on the bottom half of his smile.

We had friends and my dad over last night to watch the BYU-Washington football game. I'm happy to report that our Cougars were victorious, 23-17.  It was a great game and I really enjoyed having our company over.  We made lots of appetizers and snacks and had ourselves a great time.  We also have another set of friends coming over tonight for dinner.  Lots of entertaining this weekend.
