we are CELEBRATING one very ODD year, and i'm giving away some coffee!

today is the OFFICIAL one year anniversary of
Some Odd Girl,
and WOOT! we are HOPPIN'!

so i shared my fave Kaylee cards, but if you were to ask me which Some Odd Girl card i've made is my absolute favourite, i think i'd have to say it's this one...

it was for a "3 or more images" challenge on the Some Odd Girl blog, and i was entirely too pleased with how this one came together. i was happy with my colouring, my layering, the papers, the doodles, and ESPECIALLY the way i placed the images for depth. check it out:

i had so much fun making it, and i almost hated to sell it at the craft fair last month, but i hope it went to an appreciative recipient. ;)

believe it or not, THIS was a big part of what kicked my dear Kristy-Holmes-Dollie in the pants, and what started the fabulosity of Some Odd Girl:

weird, right? well the image of the girl was the very first drawing of Kristy's that was put to rubbah, and Adina sent it to her as a gift (but not before i had the chance to ink it up and make something!). yes, there was some scheming going on, but we were convinced from the getgo that she had a true TALENT, and we were determined to see it put to good use!

a year ago today, was launched, with a shopping cart and 35 images, and THIS little lady made her big debut into the crafty world:

she's changed a little since her birth, but overall, she's still the same sweet Kaylee we've all come to know and love! and now she's got more friends than she can count, a huge following, and a very LOYAL fan in me! :)

today, we Odd Girls are sharing our favourite projects, and there may just be some goodies to be won along the way! drop by and visit all of the Odd Girls (start back at the Some Odd Girl challenge blog so you don't miss anyone, or if you've come to me from Kristy's blog, then Kimmy's place is your next stop!). here's the order for quick reference...

finish things off by leaving a comment back at the Some Odd Girl challenge blog, and *I* will be giving away the entire set used in my favourite card up there. :) make sure you leave comments for ALL of the Odd Girls in order to be eligible, and HAPPY HOPPIN', friends!
