NEW SOME ODD GIRL released today! and Design Dollies ELEMENTS challenge!

first... check out The TownScrapper's BLOG HOP, going on NOW! you can play along with our challenge, you can leave comments to win, and you can be entered for a YUMMY grand prize at the end of the Hop!

second, HOLY COW, have you been to Some Odd Girl today?! there's a brand new category, and you're going to FALL IN LOVE! (some people already have, and it's totally justified!) LOADS of new, adorable images! check out a few new additions to the Critters, Confections, and Creatures categories, too! (if you haven't grabbed the freebie, do it before it's too late!)

oh, i couldn't wait to play with this little miss! our new ELEMENTS CHALLENGE at Design Dollies is to incorporate a non-traditional FOUND ITEM into your project. i scoured the house to see what i wanted to do, but the answer was actually inspired by the Mae image i decided to use. i grabbed these little butterfly earrings:

and wanted to use them on her ears, but they were a bit too big. instead, i used them like THIS:

and since my card was already getting pretty heavy on the dimension, i thought i'd add some pretties, and a little red butterfly to go with Mae's pretty shoes (though i may go back and add some stickles on the butterfly just to make it POP!):

and i'm officially in love with Some Odd Girl images. i have a ton of them printed and on the ready, so i can just colour if i'm in the mood, and pick something for any challenge i might find.

SO, go HERE to see what the Nerdboy-Dollie has done with his non-traditional found item, and to ogle our little Prego-Dollie's beautiful vintage creation... you might be surprised! play along with us for a chance to win THESE
and do it by next MONDAY, April 26th at midnight EST. or combine this challenge with yesterday's COLOR CHALLENGE by SUNDAY, April 25th for a shot at BOTH prize packages!

entering this Mae card in:
the Sketch Challenge at the Shabby Tea Room
the Touchy-Feelie challenge at Cute Card Thursdays

and now YOU want to go over to Design Dollies to play along, right? and you want to visit Some Odd Girl to see what other new GAWJESS images are available TODAY, don't you?
