Some Odd Girl challenge - STASH #4 - show me the SHIMMER!

well folks, i just applied for two jobs (both at the same company, one definitely being ideal and the other being pretty darned good too), and my face is turning blue because i'm totally holding my breath! i am absolutely qualified to do either job, so hopefully that will be apparent in my cover letter and resume, not to mention the fabulous letter of recommendation my former employer wrote for me. FINGERS CROSSED! the building is not yet open, so that could mean training would begin off-site, but it could also mean that the position might start up sometime in the next month or two, which would be SO perfect! anyway, don't want to get my hopes up, but really excited about the prospects.... *wishwishwish*

that out of the way, it's SOME ODD GIRL CHALLENGE TIME!

this time, i want SHIMMER, baby!
by that, i do NOT mean throwing on some gemstones and calling it a day... i want to see MAX bling factor! add some metallic paint, some stickles, some glittery embossing, some foil, whatever!

the prize - two Some Odd Girl images; one being THIS ONE:

and the other being your choice from the store... and HOLY WOW, there are some amazing new images that were just released on tuesday!

so do it! like this:

THAT, my friends, would be Fairy Fly Away Mae - is she not stinkin' FAB?! i lurrrrve her!
(i promise you that is NOT butt showing! it's THIGH!)

so yeah, shimmah!

The Treehouse - using your fave paper crafting tool. mine is my TONIC scissors for fussy-cutting! the journal box was square, so i decided to capitalize on the dots and make it all scallopy instead! and, of course, Mae is fussy cut as well. :)
and Paper Sundaes #22 - using this sketch:

(i think this will be a huge GO-TO sketch for me!)

right. that's it for me, as hubbin is home, i need to get some envelopes for all my craft fair cards, and i will be back TOMORROW! ciao!

  6. Yo ho ho! Here's me sending all my good vibes and crossed fingers your way. I just KNOW something good is on the horizon for you. And hey, if we play our cards right maybe we can hop a yacht together with that fabulously wealthy and debonair man I'm about to meet and head off to never never land where we won't NEED jobs!

    A girl's gotta dream, right?

    Anyway, super duper job on your craftiness. Your work always amazes me. So yeah, about that nine buckarooos. CHEAP! But I'll take it. And since they finally responded to us it convinced me I should go to CKC Cinci after all. OK, truth be told, I woulda gone anyway but ssshhh, they don't need to know that.

    ~the end~
