Sunday Challenge--Fussy Cutting

Morning Divas!  As you are reading this I am on the road with my trusty dog and my faithful rubber duck to Oklahoma.  Going to see some family and go to the Creative Keepsakes Convention in Tulsa.  Can't wait!!!
    I love all the new papers out, don't you?  They are so busy and full of patterns and shapes...what? You don't like them cause they are too hard to figure out how to use them?  Well worry no more, Cause my challenge for you today is to use those busy papers to make a layout!
     My is a 2 pager, but yours doesn't have to be....it doesn't even have to be a layout...could be a card.  Or an altered box.  The trick is that to qualify for a fabulous kit from My Minds Eye, you need to have a pic of your paper before and project after. 
     I have a great friends who co-owns a wonderful paper crafting/stamping store in Villa Park, Ill called Creative Cuts and Crafts.   Linda calls "detail cutting" fussy cutting!  I love it and I have totally made it my own.  I love my exacto blade and cutting details makes me almost giggly! Let me show you the layout I made out of a class kit from CKC in Kansas City.  It was a SEI class and we never got to finish any of the pages!

And this is an older project that I put fabulous paper on a box I store my Cricuts cartridges in. (I know isn't it sad that that is all I have? I don't use it much any more.)   But look at the box, not the sad contents!  I had some cloth paper I got from a vendor a few years back and then Best Creations came out with this yummy paper..sorry I don't have the original paper to show you.  I'll be a better photographer next time!



     So the challenge is to make your project, take picture of the paper you use before you cut it (so we can see it) and then the finished project.  You have until next Saturday the 20th at midnight West coast time to get your project in.  Please let this be a new project made for this...It isn't a challenge if you already have it done.  Remember, as always, leave a comment in Mr Linky cause we love to see your Diva  Divine projects.  Have a great week!

I love, love, love to do "dussy cutting" with pattern papers. Sometimes the pattern is so beautiful, that I can not hide it with photos and it'e then when fussy cutting comes to the rescue!!!

I added my fussy cut project to the linky tool, but I'm not 100% sure if it worked right (I got an error code) so I'll include a link here too.

Thanks so much,
