Going back in time

These pictures are the inspiration for this week's challenge over at the Corrosive Challenge Blog #22!

They really stumped me!I tried all sorts of things and eventually came up with this. I HATE it!!!
I just couldn't get my head around this challenge at all so decided to go with the rock theme. I think my mojo has left town!

Using a piece of my daughter's scrapbook paper - Thanks 'Tink' ;o) - with the rock chick on it I rounded off the corners and pop dotted it. I punched out a border in pink which I stuck underneath. I then matched up the colours of the rainbow with some chipboard letters to spell out 'You Rock' and added a couple of gems. At the bottom, above each of the holes I put alternate orange and pink legless brads, and a couple at the top to give a bit of balance. I love those brads, they add dimension with very little effort! Finally I added the sentiment using some little clips that I have had for years and never used, and a couple on the right hand side to add interest. Don't you just love it when you get around to using something that you've had for years. You feel like your halo is glistening, don't you?!!!

Dies: None! (Oh wow, that's a first for me lol!!)
Paper: Pinched from my daughter's scrapbook set. Sorry, no idea who makes it, pink Bazzill cardstock
Accessories: Swarowski Gems, Li'l Davis Designs Vintage Wood Alphabet, Legless Brads in 'Totally Tropical' and tag from Craftwork Cards, Martha Stewart hole punch

Hopefully next week the challenge will be a bit easier. I am sure you guys can come up with some fab creations for this one though, so get that mojo going and join in on this week's challenge, I'd love to see what you all make!

Enjoy the rest of your day. I'm hoping to get a bit of crafting done this week, and have some cards to show you. Now that Natasha is off school we can get creative together. Tomorrow is supposed to be pouring rain so what better excuse to stay in for a bit of crafting?!!


  1. Hope you are enjoying your crafting time with the rain in the forecast!! (Perfect weather for crafting!) I would have a challenge at making a card off this idea, but Ruby you NAILED it! I couldn't do any better.... SO amazing girl! :)
