At last!!! Two challenges. VERY different.

Wow! It's been almost a month since I put anything on here!!
THIS is the reason, (in case I hadn't already bored you witless with it)!!!

Challenge One!!!
Living in muck and bullets while my bathroom was being converted into a shower room!

Here's the end result..

It took a month altogether and I'm STILL dusting the brick and plaster dust up!!
SO worth it though.

It means I can pick up my crafting again and my NEXT challenge is of course, a Peachy Keen one.
It's a photo inspiration challenge. I like those!
Here's the photo...

And here's what I came up with...
I used an older Peachy stamp PK-312 'Frozen Stiff Snowman', 
in keeping with the Christmas In July theme that's been running at the Peachy Keen Store all month. 
(Loads of offers and discounts going on)!
I coloured my smashing snowman with Copics and added some Nestabling on the greeting.

I'd LOVE for you to play along with the challenge. 
Please pop on over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog
to see the fabulous projects my Peachy Sisters have created! They are SO talented.

Here's the rules...
Create a project using the photo as inspiration. Interpret the photo ANY way you'd like, just be sure to let us in on your creative process!

We'll be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week, and they along with our three runner-ups will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog!

  • Design must be new
  • Link up by 7/31 11:00 PM CDT
Remember:  Peachy Keen Stamps are not required to play along, but they are required to earn TOP PEACH! :)

Well my lovelies, it's great to be back in blogland after the trauma of the shower room!
I'll be back very soon with more projects.

OH!! Just WAIT 'till you see what Kathy has up her sleeve for the August release!!
You have been warned...
