Finally!!!  First, let me just start by saying that I've been up since 7:00 am - that's U.S. Central Time (8:00 USEastern, about 2:00pm UK).  I had a horrid night: don't know why I couldn't sleep but last check on the clock was 2:00 am (maybe because today is Christmas - well, ykwim).  Then when I finally awoke, I just couldn't get around; but before I'd finished my 2d cup of coffee (and it takes at least 2 ginourmous cups), mom called and I just finished with her.  If only I had gotten Cynthia's message last night, I would be a step up!!! Didn't even think about Shimelle starting at midnight her time!

But during that first cup, I did run through all of those challenges thus far! And, boy, I was stressing because I was behind then!  So, I decided that I would cheat - just a little - with this little kit that I had put together the other day.  I altered it to fit the challenges; and actually it covers several yet I'll just use it for the spray ink one right now as that's the basic change.  Funniest thing about this is that I had put the sketch in to do this layout when I got my supplies together.  Then last night I saw this week's Glitter Girl and my mouth dropped open... that's my sketch!!! Don't get me wrong, it is definitely a Shimelle-based layout as I  have seen this by her before... but that it was this week's GG - well, that's just paranormal!

So here is my first layout for ISD... using Spray Inks:

Spray Inks & Letter Stickers: October Afternoon; Patterned Paper, Diecuts, Stickers: American Crafts; Wood: Freckled Fawn, Studio Calico; Tape: Bella Blvd; Pen: Sharpie; Pearls: Doodlebug; Brad: Hampton Art; Other: Cardstock & Flair

As you can see, this really covers Spray Ink, my Inner Pink, fave paper-line, and more.  But as I had the idea for a spray ink background as soon as I put all those lovely colors together and realized how well they would go with my Lucky Charm, that's what I'm settling on.  (Told you you'd see these photos again - this ones for GiGi's album).

Get crafty, more later, onward & upward!
