Pay It Forward

I'm sure many of you have seen this going around, but I really want to participate.  When I stopped by to visit one of my friends, I found that she was doing a 'Pay it Forward' post.  This is copied from her (Thanks Amy Jo @ Scrapping, Card Making and Living with Fibro).

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on their blog, and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 people who comment.
2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 people who comment.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!

Make sure you leave your e-mail address so that I can e-mail you for your address. :)

Scrapbookaholic Challenge

Hello my friends!  I know it's been a VERY long time since I have posted anything!!  I'm sure your lives have been as busy as mine; isn't summer always that way?!!!!!!  This week at Scrapbookaholic by Abby the challenge is to create anything summer!!  When I hear summer, I think camping.  With camping comes fishing. :)  Summer also means Birthday's for us.  We have one in May, one in August and mine is July.  So for the challenge I thought I would combine fishing with Birthdays. 

You can see that the little fish is hiding in the waves; when you pull it out you'll see that "Fishing you a Happy Birthday" is stamped on the back of the fish. :)

The waves are from Paper Doll Dress up.  I merged two waves together using my Gypsy and layered them using foam squares.  The fish is from Create a Critter. 

The sponsor for the challenge this week is Sakura of America, they make AMAZING Gel Pens.  I used the white gel pen on the waves as well as the fish.  We'd love to see you create something that represents summer!!!  Make sure you stop over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby to participate in the challenge, you'll also love to see what the other DT member have created (they are all AMAZING)!! :)

As always, thanks for stopping by, and make sure you join us for some fun at Scrapbookaholic by Abby!!!
