Hi all.....

Today we have a REAL FUN challenge for you!!!!!! This time its..."These are a Few of My Favorite Celebrities!" Soooooooooooooo fun!! Is your FAVE CELEBRITY a current one, one from the past, or you have so many, you just can't decide?????? We want to see who you would choose!!:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Let's see who our DT have picked! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

First, our GDT Patricia! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) She chose Audrey Hepburn!! I loveeeeeeeeee her and I loveeeeeeeeeeee this LO!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And next, we have Jana's FAVE CELEBRITY Marilyn Monroe!! *sigh* I loved her...and I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee Jana's STUNNING LO! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Jeanet and her FAVE CELEBRITY is Clint Eastwood!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this!! That photo she chose of him is AWESOME!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Hanneke and her FAVE CELEBRITY is Cesar Millan!!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeee how she got all the cute doggy goodies on here!!! LOVE IT! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Jenneke and her FAVE CELEBRITY is Lionel Richie!!!! She got to meet him once!! SO JEALOUS!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE this Jenneke!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Bekka and her FAVE CELEBRITY Ryan Reynolds!!! Well... you know that there is a story behind this one... lol! Make sure to check Bekka's blog to read all about it!! LOVE THIS Bekka! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next, we have Michelle B. and she made her FAVE CELEBRITY with a twist...she asked her Daughter and her Husband who their FAVE CELEBRITIES were, and incorporated theirs along with hers to make a FAMILY FAVE CELEBRITY lo!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE IT!!!!! And Michelle picked Sandra Bullock as hers (JUST LIKE ME! YAY!) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Chris's artistic take on her FAVE CELEBRITY....she couldn't pick one, so she made a collage of several of her FAVES!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE this Chris!! WOW WOW WOW! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And last, but not least is mine, and I also took a twist on my lo.... I didn't include a photo of my FAVE CELEBRITY Sandra Bullock, rather I did a quote from one of my FAVE MOVIES of hers, "Hope Floats"...here is the quote I used... "Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will.."  :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

So, there you have it...these are our FAVE CELEBRITIES...who are yours??? Give us a link to your creation (it can be a lo, a card, an altered item...old, new, doesn't matter...we just want to see you play along!)..... in the comment section of this post by the evening of December 13th and we will announce our winner on December 14th!!!! The winner this time will be getting a $20.00 gift certificate to Scrapbook.com!!! Talk about Happy Holidays for YOU!! lol! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)  Can't wait to see what you create!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all...

Within in this past month, I have found out that Stephanie's (the owner of Bella Blvd.) Brother-in-Law was killed in an accident and Dolores's (a bloggy friend) best friend is fighting breast cancer on a very limited income being a teacher....and BOTH ladies (Dolores and Stephanie) have asked for Thank You cards to be sent to them to have on hand for the many, many, many people that are assisting them in their time of need.   Soooooooooo we at FAVE THINGS came up with the idea to help them and make it a challenge to all of you to help out too.... OUR CHALLENGE is ... make a THANK YOU CARD using your FAVE FALL COLORS and send it to one or both of these women in need if you decide to make more than one card!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

That is our special challenge this time around...make a Thank You card for one or both of these ladies that are requesting them and send cards to them... no prize this time, no winner... just asking for our friends and fans to help them out! :):):):):):):):) We hope that even though there isn't a prize or winner this time around... that you will still find it in your heart to join us on this quest! :):):):):):):):):) We would still LOVE to see the cards you make though... please leave us a link in the comments section of this post, so we can see what you created... and I will on the 29th of this month I will still include a slide show of all those that played along...so please link your card(s) to us here so I can show them all off on the 29th! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Our November Guest Designer! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

I am soooooooooo happy to announce our November Guest Designer today! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

PATRICIA DIAS!!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

She is AMAZING! She has played along with us several times...and I adore her WORK!!! :):):):):):):):) Here is what Patricia has to say about herself! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

My name is Patricia Dias. I live in Curitiba / Brazil, with my husband and my two gorgeous kids, João Pedro age 6 and Ana Beatriz age 4. They are my inspiration. I discovered scrapbooking in 2005. I love the creative process from taking the picture to finding the right paper and embellishment. For me this process is therapeutic. I love colors, crafts in general and vintage founds. I work in different styles but my favourite ever is a romantic and vintage style.
I also want to thank Jennifer Campbell for being an AMAZING GDT for October!! YOU ROCK Jennifer!!!! We appreciate you! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Tomorrow I will be back with the winner of our FAVE SPORTS challenge...you all are SERIOUSLY AMAZING! I have BEEN LOVING what everyone has been creating!!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And on the 15th... we have a VERY SPECIAL challenge here at FAVE THINGS that you all will find in your heart to play along with... for those in the US... this is the month to celebrate Thanksgiving...and our next challenge is all about saying THANK YOU!! Hehehehehe...that's the only clue you are gonna get! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Thanks for stopping by... see you tomorrow! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
