None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Beautiful Thoughts ...

If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. ~Roald Dahl

Good morning Friends
Today starts a new Color Challenge at The OutlawzChallenges. Our sponsor this month is DigiStamps4Joy with a $10.00 voucher to their store.

This week's challenge comes from AJ.
Use 5 colors with a twist of adding texture!

My 5 x 7 will be a bit two fold in that I added texture with an embossing folder and I added glitter to the hem of the girls dress to add both texture and bling.

Sweet Tooth Boo ...

I ask of life the innocence of yesteryears, the happiness of the present time and the peace of mind of future. ~Papiha Ghosh, @Soooper_Bakar

Good morning Friends
Today is the start of a new Anything Goes Challenge at Through the Craft Room Door Challenges. Our Sponsor this week is Lacy Sunshine with a prize of 3 images.

I am using an adorable image called Sweet Tooth Boo ... I really like her because depending on the colors you use, you can change her theme to fit any holiday or occasion ...

For this 5 x 7 card, I used shades of peach.

Baskets full of Posies ...

The dust and odour of ancient libraries, the gloom of those crypts of literature, have... all the charm of freshest images and freshest poetry. ~Alexandre Vinet (1797–1847)
Good morning Friends!
Today starts a new Color Challenge at The Outlawz Challenges and our sponsor this month is DigiStamps4Joy.

This week your challenge is to use 4 of these 5 colors below on anything but a card.

We have some create inspiration waiting for you from the Designs Team members so come check it out and play along with us!

I made a book mark using the image that is actually the DigiStamp4Joy June Progressive Freebie for my daughter who loves to read. I didn't add a tassel because she does not like them.
