As You See It Challenge 

It's Friday and that means that it's time for a new challenge.  Check out this simple but yet practical design from Ms. Amanda.  Something about design on the bottom and words on the top just strikes me as elegant.  

I took the opportunity to use some of the new products from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  You can check it out at

Simple, classic, and great for Valentine's Day!  Enjoy! 

Don't forget to link up your project at

As You See It Challenge IS BACK!!!

Hello Everyone! 
Goodness it's been a while, a long long while.  Yes, I say that every time I take a break from blogging, but it's true.  I've been MIA from my blog for what seems like years, life was complicated, I wasn't into blogging at the time, so well, I set it aside for a while.  Now, I'm BACK and AYSI is BACK!  We had some technical AKA Hacking (okay, maybe not totally hacking, but that's what is basically was) on our actual challenge blog.  So we had to switch things around and re-group, twice! 

All that to say, here is this weeks challenge!  Please play along and check out the great design from Amanda.  By going to the challenge blog you will be able to upload your project for the world to see. :) 

Happy Mother's Day, say what?!?!  Yeah, it's early but I was SO excited about the SO SUCCLENT stamp set from Stampin' Up! that I had to use it.  It's fresh off the press along with the background papers.   

Who's ready for spring?  I know I am!
