2 Challenges

        OK what started out has to do a challenge got me doing two other cards with their idea...
                       the challenge I had first chosen was Tuesday Morning Sketches
and thought maybe just maybe I could combine the 2 challenges
I loved the layout that Tuesday Morning had ..I must say It was a bit of a challenge
doing the Pink, White and  Silver
but here is my try at putting the 2 challenges together

just to show the card a bit open ...front paper is front Echo Park
the pink back is just a foil I had that it would give me that pink look.
Now this challenge from Tuesday Sketch got me to thinking and
well here are a couple of the cards I made up

took me a while to get the golfer and the card shape together then I cut it out
with my Cameo
just added a few items to get that golf course feel ...
then this card the little girls on the card are a Micheal Recollection item
the paper flowers scraps I really wanted the feel of a vine of flowers growing on a lattice

the paper I found was not really lattice but it gave me the look any ways
What do you think ?
Please stop by these two challenges and give them a try .
Have a great week.

The event started at 1:00 and it was a hot day  all the kids from grad were cooking  after pictures which ended about 3:30 they then had to stand in a line outside for about 90 mins to do the march down TRU steps which was three floors high  ...then around the outer circle to the middle of circle yes this is all done outside so no break from the sun or heat. Once in the circle they then would have their dance with the  parent.
She did her first dance with Papa ..then second with Marcus .

We had 240 students grad from our school alone. And with dates and teachers they figured about 600.
