Guest Designer/Anyone For Leftovers

A great good morning everyone. I have to start out with the announcement of my blog candy winner from last week. First the answer to my question was, all the DT members and myself used images of little girls. And the WINNER is: Linda from Multicoloured Imagery .
Pink and Cream seemed to conjour up images of little girls, so to my surprise when I got my post ready for this morning I didn't even realize until now that my mind went to little boys for my next card.
This weeks challenge at Creative Inspirations is: Anyone For Leftovers
I used the Faux Torn Mosaic technique for my background paper which was a piece of paper leftover from a previous project. It already had some torn edges so this technique seemed to lend itself to this card. You can find the instructions for this technique on Splitcoast Stampers .
Looking forward to seeing all your neat creations that you come up with this week after you have rummaged through your leftovers. Hop over to Creative Inspirations later this morning and see what the Design Team has come up with out of their leftovers.
Being guest designer has really been a fun endeavor and a great honor. I think one of my next goals will be to apply for a Design Team member spot. 2010 has been good to me so far, I might get accepted somewhere, you never can say never.

Supplies: Kraft Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Paper Refliction, Papers: All from my scrap box-I didn't used to be good about keeping papers and scraps separate, but I'm trying to do better-sometimes other want to know where they came from, the layout is similar to the one with the instructions for the technique, Stamps: Inkadinkado-97620 Dogs, CTMH-C1184 Frogs, Ink: Stamp Up-Pacific Point, CTMH-Z 2123 Goldrush, Snails generated in Printmaster 11, The Paper Studio Spare Parts-button brads, Jo Ann's-Gold Metal Rim Tags, colored hemp cord, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G

this background is wonderfully "boyish" in color--I love it!

And thank you for the blog candy--such a nice surprise since I get eye candy every time I visit your blog ;-)

Hi Beverly,

Wonderful job on this week's challenge. I love that paper you used - it works great for the faux torn mosaic technique! And it is very boyish too, which works great for your theme.I wanted to thank you too for all the nice compliments you have left on my blog. I'm so happy you are enjoying your visits!

Have a great weekend.
