Jr. Pro Basketball...

*******Second post today, please scroll for A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ******

Good Morning,
Today is a new day, ice and snow this morning....but I'm going to focus on last week's fabby participants at Practical Scrappers! Wow, we had another outstanding week! Your projects are so incredible! Thanks to you ALL for continuing to play along with us! Our top 3 this week is Priscillastyles, Fancy Melissa, and Brae.....and our Stampee Foil Grand Prize winner is Sarah M! You can see the winning projects here. Congrats ladies, you all had incredible projects!!!!

Our new challenge is chalks/inks. We will have a top 3 and a random winner of some Glitz Design goodies! With that said, I used ink on everything! So for this challenge, I decided to use some chalks. I cute these cute little basketball shoes from the Basketball cart and used chalks to color them in. I couldn't resit the eyelets to make the laces.

Both basketballs were from Basketball cart too, embossed with swill dots and chalked up.

The title looks great really didn't photograph well against the background paper. I used swiss dots on the title too and did a mix of yellow, red and orange chalks, the basketball is a piece of vellum.

And here is the layout. This is my little Jon-Christopher at his first Jr. Pro basketball game! The shooting ball is also cut from the basketball cart. I did the orange and red chalking there too. This looks really good irl....just didn't photograph too well, I guess it may be all the snow and gloom we have here. The little stickers on the photos are from my stash. I used Cuttin' Up for the title.
Now it's your turn to pull out the inks or chalks and show us some awesome creations! Instead of doing what you usually do, try something different. Be sure to visit my dt sisters each day this week for some awe inspiring creations. I have them linked up in my side bar!
Have a great Monday!
