100 % FUN!!!

So I asked myself some
questions at the start of this year
about how I wanted to blog 
and what challenges I wanted to 
participate in on a regular basis, etc.

Of course, I want to do a monthly kit 
with CKC blog.  
But I also thought about some of the other
challenges out there 
and which ones really spoke to me
and why.

Well, the one that kept coming to mind
and the one I decided to start trying to do
is the one over at Simon Says Stamp.
It is a weekly challenge that goes up every Monday.
The wonderful Ashli Oliver
is on the design team
and the equally as wonderful May Flaum
heads it up.

So I decided to really challenge myself and 
try to keep up with the weekly challenges.

This week it is an anything goes challenge.

Yep, what a great time to use
an over size,
big as your head % sign
that goes wonderfully
because of the oversize,
big as your head picture.

This is an iPhone pic 
blown up to an 8x8 
from Persnickety.
Seriously didn't have high hopes
that it would turn out well,
but oh my goodness,
it is FANTASTIC!!!
Look at his gorgeous face.
Our Sir Cuteness as the most beautiful
eyelashes, and I know you can't see them
here, but they showed up SO well 
in this print.

So the % sign is wood veneer,
ginourmous wood veneer!
So at first I thought maybe I'd try
Perfect Pearls to spruce it up.
So I covered it and embossed it with white.
Better, but still could see the PP
SO I embossed it again with the white
and voila!
I love the outcome!!
At first you don't succeed and all that.
Ya know...

And then of course Maggie.
Have y'all seen her new
Styleboard line coming out soon?
Yes, It will be making an appearance
here on ye ole blog.
I am certain of it!!!

Hey, thanks for stopping by.
Leave me some love
and follow me if ya'd like.

Have a Blessed and Beautiful,
Krafty, Kind of Day ~~
