And when someone needs a makeover, I simply have to take over...

We had a bellarific time at the soiree on Friday night...have you seen the new BELLA? We finally persuaded Em to give us one, and boy did she give us a fabulous one! I loveeeeeee her!!

There are also a few challenges open until Monday night at 8:00 PM Central, so make sure you check them all out!!

The first challenge was a sketch, made by yours truly, based on this card. You can see the sketch challenge thread HERE.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The next challenge was my brilliant idea that proved harder than it sounded. Called Expect the Unexpected, it is a challenge to use something unexpected as an embellishment on your card or project. Here's the thread, and here's what I came up with.I will post directions for my "Yertle Boxy Thing" tomorrow, k? This is actually result of a 2,5,7,10 box gone wrong. Don't you love when that happens? *wink* I'm going to fill a baggie with Turtle candies and hang it on my friend's door at work for her to find. I think she'll love it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then the last project is (of course) my favorite, which was Bewitched, Bothered, and Be Dazzled. Of course, we had to do a bling challenge. Here's the thread, and here's my sample.How fabulous is she?! Yes, I know you've seen 2 out of 3 of these, but just in case you missed 'em, here they all are together.

I hope yall are having a fabulous weekend...we're off to lunch at Uncle Julio's for some awesome Tex-Mex!! YUM!!
