Did you hear me screaming when I realised that this week's challenge over at PFP has banned the use of patterned papers - WHAT!!! I love my papers, have far more than I could ever imagine using and still keep buying the new releases. But still that is what a challenge is all about - taking you outside of your comfort zone!! Our fabbie teamie/boss teamie, Denise, has set this challenge at PFP but I must say I'm rather pleased she did!!
It's my son Harry's 21st this Saturday and we have already bought him a motorbike ( I know, I know, but I have banned tattoos whilst we're still supporting him through Uni!!). I've used this fab freebie image of the bike from Bird's Cards - such a great site full of freebies and templates!! I matched her with this gorgeous Kenny K girlie Megan Foxy ( Harry also loves Megan Fox!!)
Don't you just love it when you use items from your stash that have been there for a wee while and you begin to wonder if you should have bought them. Well, I've used a couple of Tim Holtz masks - the diamond outer edge and a barbed wire one on the inner square, both inked with Black Soot Distress Ink. The metallic frame, is also made from a purchase long ago of metal strips that were reduced and therefore calling to me!!
The sentiment is Stampin Up and I love this because it is also Harry's Initals - HB!!
I've glossy accented her goggles and boots and that's it. Harry's organised his own Beerfest in the garden, Friday night and then on the actual day of his birthday, it also happens to be one of hubby's Uncles, 65th birthday and he's having party!! Ain't that brilliant - they're having a family party so we can just tag along!! And then on Sunday, we're having a family lunch - It's a three day birthday!!
Anyway, I've digressed!! Back to our challenge at PFP, this week our sponsor is Whiff of Joy, the home of such gorgeous stamps and goodies, so do play along with us!!
My lovely teamies at PFP have totally rocked the no patterned papers theme this week, so do go and take a look here!!
I'll try to remember to post some pics of the weekend's festivities at a later date!!
