~Happy Friday! Time for some fun and a CHA TRIP Giveaway!!!!!~

Happy FRIDAY!!!!! I am so excited,
I leave on Sunday for Chicago!!!!
I know you must be sick of hearing about it LOL


Yesterday someone asked me about this flower
I made so I thought I would post it.
The flower is some sort of Prima Flower and I WRAPPED
this Webster's Pages Bloomer's Ribbon.
Then I used my irock to place a clear gemstone on
the button. That's it.

Because I am genuinely crazy, I decided
at the last minute to play in a challenge on
Tally Scrapper.It's called "So You Think You Can Scrap"
I am not playing to win.
I am just playing to have some fun.
If I win I am sending the box of goodies to my
friend Denise. Who has slipped off the face
of the scrap world LOL
Anyways, I just thought I would have fun.
The first challenge was to scrap a 8.5X11 PURPLE PAGE
that says "So you think you can...?"
I chose Judge Me?
I had to use twine, and a wallet sized photo.
Oh and an all purple page...(yes this
is purple, it's the Whitewash Color Core'dinations purple paper)
Not because I am angry but it's funny how people
judge me because of my pink hair.
They think I am a punk, or goth, or a crazy drunk.
In reality, I am such a soccer mom it hurts LOL

Anyways, just some scrap fun.

Now for the beginning of my CHA giveaways! :)
I have some chipboard and papers
from the new Imaginisce Apple Cider Collection
*just a few*I was not supposed to get the extras but
a cross over in shipping time and another DT
gave me some so I am passing them along.

Be sure to leave a comment here and
pass the word along!!! It's going to be a fun week!

Stay tuned this week because I have a big one
by the end of CHA and I plan on giving
away most of the goodies I get at the show!

You won't want to miss it!

Ok I am off to pack and go to the PO!

~Thanks for popping by~
~Happy Friday Y'all~
~Pinky~

Well, I have little chance of winning the yummy Apple Cider (it's actually my favorite Imaginisce to date). But, I'll cross my fingers!

Love your LO! I think it's funny how people do judge on appearances so much!

Judith Veldhuizen said...

HAVE FUN ON YOUR TRIP TO CHICAGO PINKY.
THANK YOU FOR THE CHANCE TO ENTER YOUR GIVE AWAY.
MY DAUGHTER HAD PINK HAIR BEFORE SHE STARTED CHEMO THERAPY. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ACCEPTING OF PEOPLE'S UNIQUE DIFFERENCES. THE WORLD WOULD BE PRETTY DULL IF WE ALL LOOKED A LIKE. YOUR REBEL EMBLEM YOU MADE DESCRIBED MY DAUGHTER TO A T...SHE GRADUATED TO HEAVEN IN OCTOBER 2009.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Nicole Laird said...

I LOVE that flower...i seriously thought it was a premade one...oops!! lol

I'm so glad you're on my team and playing along!! :0) Your LO and your hair are fab!!

Scrap Vamp said...

I love that purple page! Your hair rocks and I know that feeling of being judged by the color of your hair. Over the years, I've had a ton of different colors and always had the same reaction! Have a safe trick to CHA! I can't wait to see what you find there!

Jodi said...

Have an awesome and safe trip!!! I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!!!

Jocelyn said...

Have fun sweet friend at CHA...I wish I were going with you...I could you some fun times right now!!!

Love you LO...just perfect as always!!

Can't wait to see pics and most of all ENJOY..you deserve it!!! LOVE YOU!!!!

Donna said...

I hope you have a FABULOUS trip DAHLING! I love the pink and blue BTW. You have inspired me also. I started with some orange extensions and now I have some orange highlights - just 2 streaks close to my face for fun - but who knows where I may go next? I love this line - and your LOs are always funtastic!

Colleen said...

Love your Purple layout. And yes, my daughter does judge you on your pink hair, she is convinced that you love Pigs.

have fun at CHA, I am so jealous of you and some of my other friends, I would love to go sometime. Hope you get to meet my friend Penny

Pinky said...

Ohhhh Debbie, your sweet daughter :(.


Oh my goodness Colleen you had me laughing out loud in my computer chair hahahaha.

Heather said...

Love this page! Was your hair pink and blue in that picture or is my screen just wonky! Thanks for the chance to win some apple cider, I tried over at Imaginisce blog, but wasn't that lucky!

Manhattan Mandie said...

You are so generous, Pinky! I'm super excited for CHA too!

I love your layout it's so beautiful! And the picture is fantastic!!!

Vicki in MD said...

have a great time at CHA and Chicago. Love the LO and as for being judged, it is sad for those who do the judging that they don't get past the outward appearance.

Thanks for sharing the tip on the beautiful flower. Never thought of altering a prima but I see it works marvelously.

Pinky said...

Hey Heather, when I got my first Manu gig, for purple Cows I altered a picture to look purple/blue.
It was a photoshop LOL

Vicki said...

Great layout. Have a great time in Chicago.

Christy said...

MrsETaylor said...

I Judge ya. My judging statement....

"She must be an absolute hoot to be with and I gotta befriend that Pinkie McGee"

Love this layout. It is fabulous.

After seeing your CHA apron, I'm being a copy cat and taking my zebra print one to the show.


You Rock my friend

OOOH! I would LOVE to win! And for the record! I LOVE your hair! I am going to CHA also! I will look for you!!

Kristie Maynard said...

I love your page! people judge others in the strangest ways, don't they? Appearance is so huge to some. I think in recent years, hair color, piercings and tattoos are the biggest things that are misunderstood.
Have fun at CHA, wish I could be there.
Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Amy said...

Have fun at CHA!! You are so lucky to get to go and be surrounded by all that scrappy goodness.

I am in love with that ribbon flower. Sooo fabulous!! And your LO is wonderful....all the elements are perfect.

Thanks for the chance to win some of these super yummy goodies!!

Quite frankly my dear Pinky - I think your hair ROCKS and I wish I had the courage to be so bold!!!

Gail said...

Love the flower,k love the page, and thanks for the chance to win goodies!

AprilsL8 said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I love your hair!! I have always had "interesting" hair myself. When I had spikey "porcupine" hair (years ago)I had little old ladies want to feel it!

Raven said...

I love your hair! I think it is awesome that you have a zest for life and want to express yourself! Pink makes me happy. I would be wake up every day with a smile if I had pink hair.
It's unfortunate how many people assume so much by the way we look. I lost all of my hair from chemo therapy and I actually had a couple ignorant people make rude comments about me being bald-as if it were a fashion choice!
So you hold your gorgeous pink head high!

rstuck2003 said...

Thanks for the chance to win the apple cider! I love this and see great things being made with it!

Apple Cider looks delish and I would love some.

I like your pink hair especially with the blue undertone. Cool. Have a fun trip! Stacy H-W

Bobbi said...
