a pinterest challenge and a little giveway! :)

a few days ago,  my friend diane asked if i would join her and kimberly neddo, sasha farina and emily pitts in  a just-for-fun little pinterest inspiration challenge.  sounded like fun; so i said, "yes!"  kimberly found this image on pinterest.  the challenge is to use it as an inspiration.
before i show you my projects, let me link you up to the other girls.
onto what i did.  :)  i made a layout and a card.  both using CHAP from american crafts.  man!  i love that line.  fantastic!  i used the inspiration pretty literally.  i hope you enjoy!  :)


okay.... for the really fun part.  i decided to do a little bitty giveaway to go along with it.  so.  simply leave a comment below to be entered to win.  want an extra chance to win?  create your own project based on the inspiration piece and leave me a comment below linking me to your creation!  i am giving away some american crafts "spice" delights, elle's studio halloween bits and some mixtape from american crafts' nightfall line.  all items i LOVE and all items i have multiples of.  why not share rather than hoard?!  :)  so get busy!  the time to enter the giveaway ends november 27 (giving you a little extra time since thanksgiving is right around the corner!)  internationals are welcome.  :)

  13. This was a great group of projects! I love that new "Chap" line and using all the prints in one page is a GREAT idea- really beautiful layout. I made a page that's loosely based on the illustration- thanks for the layout idea- I was really struggling with how to put 12 images in 1 page. http://myanaloglife.blogspot.com/2011/11/thankful-page-daily-grace-project.html
