HANNA PREVIEW: Slumber Party

Happy December 2nd! Only 13 more days till my due date, not that I am counting!! I will be posting my Christmas Countdown project a little later today as I neglected to pick up the picture I needed to and need to go get that still. So be sure to check back in later!

For this first card today, I rotated Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #67 (WSC67). It started out looking very close to the challenge layout still, but in the end, I added the circles of "shut up" and "no way" and the popcorn and so it strayed quite a bit. Oh well, it happens. I really like the end product though and that is what matters! What do you think? Can I still count it for Beate's sketch???

Stamps: Slumber Party (Hanna Stamps), Just What I Meant to Say (Hanna Stamps) Paper: Me & My Big Ideas - Dandelion (DP-07), Certainly Celery (SU), Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Basic Black (SU!), Solar Crest White (Neenah) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: Ribbon FX sheer black polka dots (Hobby Lobby), 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 inch circle punches (SU!), Spare Parts by the Paper Studio - glitter brads (Hobby Lobby), copic ciao markers, clear embossing powder, white thread, sewing machine.

I was trying to remember what we used to do at Slumber Parties when I was younger and the only things I could remember is watching movies, drawing with makeup pencils (lip liners and eyeliner) on the face of the person who fell asleep the earliest (yep, mean mean, but I remember waking up with a tree on my face one morning - crazy girls), freezing bras and taking quizzes out of Teen magazines, which would often lead to a pillow fight over someone's reply. Fun times. Gossip and talking about who we had a crush on (or having that information coaxed out) fit in there some where too! I decided to focus on making a notepad to write your quiz answers in and came up with this idea -- although, as I remembered all those things, I was thinking how funny it would be to come up with a slumber party survival kit, or a slumber party attack kit. LMBO! Since my DD is only 5, I have a few years on this one.

Stamps: Slumber Party Paper: Tempting Turquoise (SU!), Basic Black (SU!), Rainbow Stripe (Die Cuts With a View - DCWV) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine, Printer ink (black) Accessories: Black and White Prima Flowers, Black Polka dotted brads (Spare Parts by The Paper Studio), white mini brads, black mini brads, orange thread, sewing machine, copic markers, clear embossing powder

My final project of today is just a friend to friend card . . . I used the layout from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #43 (TECC43). I think this image in the set has an "older" look to it and is just perfect to send hugs to a friend who is dealing with a less than perfect hubby.

Stamps: Slumber Party (Hanna Stamps) Paper: Anna Griffin (AG1138), Chocolate Chip (SU!), Solar Crest White (Neenah), Wizard Dark (Prism Papers) Ink: Onyx Black versafine Accessories: Brown thread, sewing machine, nestabilities (plain and scalloped circles), Heidi Swapp Grunge brads in chocolate brown (Hanna Stamps), Xyron Create a Sticker 150, Dimensional Dots (SU!)
