Clear It Out Challenge - Polka Dots

Does anyone know what time it is?

That's right . . .

It's CHALLENGE time!!!

Time to put away the vacuum (the dust bunnies will still be there tomorrow), time to stop washing dishes (the stack isn't reaching the ceiling . . . YET!), and put away that duster, too, (because, once again, those dust bunnies aren't going anywhere) because it's time for a new challenge over at Clear It Out Challenge.  And once again, our amazingly fearless leader, Laura, has come up with another FUN challenge for us.  So let's get out our paper, scissors, glue and get crafty!!!

Are you ready?

I didn't hear you . . .

Are you ready?

It's CHALLENGE time!!!

Theme:  Crazy for Polka Dots
Stash:  Polka Dot paper

And you have one week to play (till Sept. 22nd) 

Our sponsors this week are:

This week I chose some digi images from the "Circus" digi bundle by Melonheadz . . . I used the clown, cannon and the word "CIRCUS" along with some of my Double Dot papers by Bo Bunny and some Ruche papers (yellow & navy) from PaperTemptress.  Here's how it turned out:

For the sentiment, I inserted the "CIRCUS" digi image into a MSWord document and then added "Life is a" above it . . . making sure it was centered above "CIRCUS".  For the clown and cannon digi images, I resized them to approximately 3-3.5", printed and colored them . . . then fussy-cut them.  One of the things I really like about the images from Melonheadz is that the lines were "thick" so it made it really easy to fussy cut right along the outside lines.

Remember, you have one week to get your project posted at Clear It Out Challenge in order to be eligible for the weekly prizes.

Speaking of prizes . . . The winner of the prize I was giving away from last week's challenge (choice of images/gift certificate from StampArtbyKathryne or a $15 gift certificate to PaperTemptress) is:

Barbara Gooden
