TSG193: Inspiration Challenge....by me!

Monday, February 4, 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend. We had a busy one with a birthday party for one of Syd's school friends at the local YMCA. They recently built a new facility and it's SO MUCH BETTER than the last place! They were crammed into an old building downtown that used to be the old Middle School....it was in a really bad state of affairs. So we joined this new YMCA this past weekend and I can't wait to get in there and use it! And the best part is that my employer reimburses us the membership fees if we go a certain number of times per quarter! It's a no-brainer really! Syd's looking forward to taking swimming and gymnastic classes; I'm looking forward to taking a Zumba or spinning class. :) This isn't a New Year's resolution for us, but more of a change of attitude. I'm looking forward to it!

I got a few cards made this weekend too! One of them is for this week's There She Goes challenge, which I'm hosting this week!  I'm challenging you all to create a card or project using this image as your inspiration!

Here's what I came up with!

Who can resist the red and white polka dot patterns?! I'm a sucker for it every time! :) And since there were a few hearts in the image, I pulled out the CUTE Scent-sational set to make a sweet Valentines Day card! I used this week's Retro Sketches Challenge #49 for my layout. (Notice the lack of embellishments....shocking, isn't it?! lol)

Are you tempted to play along this week?? Here are the details you'll need to know:

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using this challenge, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (February 11th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :) 

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG193 so we can check out your beautiful work!

 I've got a busy blog week coming up, so expect to see me A LOT MORE of me this week! :D
