::SOC BLOG HOP::Celebrate Sistahood Day 3

*--> Da Shawnna: <--*

All Together Now...!

So yesterday (Saturday) was a *super* busy day for me!  I knew that I wasn't going to really have time to post my project for the blog hop, so I created the post and scheduled it post at midnight....or so I thought... Imagine my utter surprise when I get up this morning and find that my 'scheduled post' never posted-- and I have no idea what I did wrong!! ...smh...  LOL But things happen, right?

So what I'm going to do is share both of my projects with you today, on the last day of the hop!

One of my sistas has been having a cRaZy couple of months- a lot has been happening.  So I wanted to create a card that had a bit of a wacky feel to it and then write her an encouraging message inside.  I used a really funky foiled chipboard set made by Soft Spoken  for the arrow and the phrase.  My iRock, some glittered cardstock, and a random punch out I had in my stash helped complete the card.  This card was certainly a departure from what I usually create, but I thought it was quirky cute!  LOL

 The second project that I want to share is a Friendship Journal that I created to start recording some of the wonderful memories my sistas and I have made over the years.  We always have such a good time when we're together and come up with so many off the wall phrases and stories that I wanted to start writing them down.  So I altered a notebook using designer paper with the meaning of friendship printed on it.  

Reading the phrases printed on the paper made me think of my two BFF's so I figured it was a great choice.  To cover the binding I used cardstock from the DVWC Old World Stack.  I'm looking forward to this journal being an awesome walk down memory lane every time I pick it up!

Remember  I have a $20.00 gift card to Michael's up for grabs! 
To win, all you have to do to win is become a follower (if you aren't already) and leave a comment!  I'll pick and post the winner on Monday (TOMORROW!!!!) - so make sure you leave an e-mail address so I can contact you if you're the winner!

Alright,  time for you to hop on over to
LaShawnda's Blog

Have a great day everybody and thanks for joining in on the Hop!!
It's been fun!!  Technical glitches and all!! LOL
