New Challenge at The Paper Shelter - For the Birds!

Hey all!  Did you think I got lost on the way to my blog?  Next time I'll leave a trail of breadcrumbs so I can be sure and find my way back every once in a while ;D

Let me begin by thanking the lovely ladies who turned out for my Bombshell Mermaid class at China Phoenix 2 last Saturday.  Your projects were beautiful and you really rocked those Copics!

Kirk and I have been prepping for the Disk-it Cook Off that Team Albukirky will be competing in this coming Saturday.  Kirk is fixing Pecan Crusted Chicken Tenders and pairing them with his signature BBQ  sauce for dipping.  Truly scrumptious, folks!  I think we have a winner ;D  We recruited my sister, her boyfriend, and my friend Debbie to help us out in our booth.  What that really means is, if we recruit you for our team, then not only do we get to boss you around and make you our minions, but we also get to borrow all of your stuff and you're not allowed to say "no"...LOL!  Seriously, we have borrowed folding tables, ice chests, water jugs etc.  Our garage looks like the hand-me-down REI version of Hoarders!  Scary ;D

Anyway, if you are in the Albuquerque area this Saturday (July 16th) between 12 - 5, stop by the Hard Rock Casino.  Tickets are only $10 and you get to sample dishes for all 50+ cooks in the competition and then vote on your favorites.  Children 12 and under get in free with a paying parent.  All proceeds benefit the UNM Children's Miracle Network, which means all of the funds raised will stay in Albuquerque.  Very cool!

Okay, on to my card...there's a brand spanking new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and the theme is For the Birds.  The DT is asking you to create projects using birds or winged things as the main focus.  Not into birds, then feel free to add wings to images or use other winged creatures.  Heck, an airplane even qualifies for this one ;D

If you enter the challenge and you used a Paper Shelter image, and you are randomly selected in the drawing, you could win a $15.00 gift certificate to The Paper Shelter shop.  If your creation is randomly selected, but you did not use a Paper Shelter image, you could still win your choice of one digi image from The Paper Shelter shop!  

Okay, that's it for me!  Time for bed ;D  Catch you tomorrow with something new.  Until then, stay crafty!
