Need a Little Direction?! Try this challenge!!

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Hello everyone!! I'm back with a new challenge for you!! My name is Barb and I am addicted to scrapbooking and anything crafty!! I guess that is why I named my blog Crafty Girl!! I think it fits... don't you?!! You can find my blog by clicking HERE!! In fact, if you stop over and visit my blog, I might just have a little side challenge that goes along with this one!! hee hee!!!

Since I have already told you about myself and my family, I thought I would tell you some things you probably don't know about me!!

1. I HATE winter!! I am excited to be moving from Indiana to Texas... I think I can handle Texas winters so much better!!
2. I am a fix it/build it kind of person! When those kind of projects need done in our house, I am the one who does it!!
3. I actually like to mow the lawn.... it is relaxing and everyone leaves me alone!! It's just me and my tractor out there!!! LOL!!
4. I really believe that chocolate makes everything better!!!
5. I really don't like to iron clothes!! My poor husband has to do his own!! (I guess he can do that since I am outside mowing the lawn!!)

So...I bet you would like for me to stop with my rambling facts about myself and get to this weeks challenge! I would like you to use an arrow on your card, layout or project!! That's it... just one arrow will do it!! I decided to focus on the direction piece of this challenge and did this LO of my family on the Road to Hana!!

I have 4 arrows on this one.... one in the title, one pointing down, one circling the picture and a small black one made from brads!!

Take a look at what the rest of the Design Team did for you!!


Well her little Natalie got a hold of some "RED" glimmer mist and opened it and pour a bit on her pp. She decided to just let it go. She says it looks messy just like her packing is looking just about now. Diana, we think it adds the perfect amount of "charm" to your layout!

Debbie loved working with this challenge and using these colorful papers by Lily Bee Design. Can you spot the arrows? One is pointing right at her son and the other is part of the timeless clock!

Joni used an arrow as a decorative embellishment, but it does subtly point out the airplane window. Also, doesn't that airplane below the arrow also sort of give the "feel" of an arrow? Those 2 arrow elements combined draw your eye to that part of the layout & the portion of the phtoto of her son looking out the airplane window.


In life you can make all kinds of wishes
and sometimes life decides those wishes
should go in another direction.
