Aud Sentiments DT CALL, Challenge and ....BLOG HOP!!!

Oh Wow - you are gonna love this one!  It's our one year anniversary over at Aud Sentiments - I find that just so incredible!  I personally have grown and developed my crafting in this time and its also been great to visit other people's blogs and see how much their crafting styles have changed!  The team have been a blast to work with and Audrey is just a superstar...I have no idea how she keeps us all organised!

OK - so...first up, we have our challenge and DT call.  Yep - 2 in 1 for you!  The theme is....ANYTHING GOES!  How cool is that?  Everyone gets the chance to do what they do best!  We are sponsored by Sassy Cheryl.  I have never used these images before and I have to say they are CUTE!  So, here is my card for the challenge....




It was truely a beauty to colour in!  Please take a chance and have a go at the DT tryouts - its a great team to be on and really easy on the committments....
1. Create a project every other week
2. Comment on entries
3. Vote for winners
4.  Be active in our Yahoo group
And we have great sponsors too!
 

Now - the BLOG HOP!!!!



Each of the DT picked one of their fave sponsors of the last year....and I picked Kenny K






I love the sassy images, they are really new and fresh - the teens are cute but not cutsie - good smattering of attitude and character going on - there are some really funny beasties and oh boy - the sexy ones are just wild!  I have lots of the teens and sexy ones, so thought I would go for something completely different for my project - meet.....SUPER GENIUS!


I kept the layout as simple as possible for a couple of reasons - firstly, I wanted to show off the image (I do feel that too many embellishments sometimes end up detracting from the image - or is that just me, not sussing out how to use them to enhance rather than detract???) - and secondly, the taller of the two is actually a notebook and I wanted it to be functional and not have bits getting in the way or dropping off!  Inside, there are humorous geeky type quotes!

Onto the order of the hop.....I am the first one you hit after you leave the challenge blog.....so excited!  After me,  you want to be heading off to my teamie Julie's Crafty Spot.  

Make sure you leave a comment on each blog - there is a really good reason for this (other than completing the whole blog hop!!!) and its because each of us have fabby prizes from our sponsors!  So - I have 5 images of your choice from Kenny K for one lucky commenter!!!! How generous is that?  Now, if I were you, I would pop on over there and drool at the images right after you have finished this hop (then, if you are lucky and your name comes up, you will know exactly which ones you want!!!).  Ooooo and also - they have a freebie over there, just waiting for you to grab!

Really, what more could you want?  More prizes? ---- well hop on over to Julie and see what she has got - just know you are going to love it!  Oooooo hang on - dont forget to leave me a comment!!!

Hop Hop Hop!!!!
