Fashionista Friday #19

Well, now that our new shoe post has been up for a bit....time for today's regular post! First, our Shoe of the Week for our purple and grey challenge! Thanks everyone for participating, some really lovely projects last week! The Shoe of the Week award goes too...
for this lovely purple and grey card! Simply beautiful! I love the stamped image and all the it! Feel free to pick up our Shoe of the Week Blinkie on our sidebar for your blog Victoria!

Now for today's challenge...this one is an inspirational challenge....find inspiration in the ad below. If you really look at this ad, first of all, it is quite humorous! Second, there is a TON of room for interpretation! Use your imagination with this one!!!

Here is how we were inspired by this ad:

Tracey--I took the shape of the ad, AND the fun drinks at the bottom!!

Jill: this is a 2 pager, so you have to picture it side by side...Jill also took the 'shape' and incorporated it into her layout

What will you take away from our ad this week? The drinks? shoes? the male/female symbols?? Be creative! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!! Add your direct links to Mr. Linky and show us what you got! Oh, and if you get a chance, stop my our new DT's blogs and welcome them to the team! Have a Shoe-tastically Scrappy DAY!

Fashionista Friday #17

It is Friday once again, and that means it is time for another Shoe challenge! But first, I have a bit of sad news to share. Tanisha will be going on deployment for a few months and won't be able to play for a while :( You may have noticed we haven't seen much of her for a while, and well, this is why. She has been prepping to get underway next week. We will miss you Tanisha! Stay safe and we'll see you in April girl!

Now for our Shoe of the Week from last week's challenge. It was fun to see all of the different embellishments y'all used 10 of! This was a TOUGH decision! But...our Shoe of the Week this week is.....(and it gives me pleasure to say this, because she has been a loyal Shoe player for a LONG time!).....

Congrats Linda! LOVED your tree and wheelbarrow full of hearts! We hope you will take our Shoe of the Week blinkie and add it to your blog!

And now for a new challenge! This week we want you to use CHIPBOARD on your projects! Make anything you want, just add some CHIPBOARD! Check out our creations with CHIPBOARD:





Now get out that chipboard and put it on your projects! I had been hoarding the chipboard trees FOREVER so it was great to finally use them! Link up your projects by Thursday Jan 14 at 7pm ET to be considered for our Shoe of the Week! Have a great weekend everybody and a Shoetastically Scrappy Day!
