15 Minute Challenge

Last night I participated in Michelle Perkett's Digi Day on SNR. What a fun evening. In addition to playing a Halloween Trivia game for a chance to win free images, she also issued a 15 minute challenge. That's right, 15 minutes to see the image, print it out, color it and then fashion it into some type of card or project, take a picture, download it from the camera and then upload it to the discussion area. Yikes! I didn't think it could be done. It helps that I am not the neatest crafter in the world, I still had a stack of paper on the desk from my last several projects. Everything on here was left on my desk from another project, except the BOO and I had just bought it yesterday. I did get it finished though and it was kind of fun to do a challenge that way. So here is my 15 minute challenge card. Just don't zoom in too close or you will see the mistakes in my coloring!

Another fun thing I did today was go shopping with my friend Angela. We've been friends for over five years now and while we do craft together on occasion and we see each other at work every day we have never gone on a marathon shopping spree before! I think that was long over due, I mean how long can you be best friends and crafting buddies and not go on shopping sprees every once in a while? I am not much of a shopper, there are really only three types of stores I like to spend tons of time in: craft stores, book stores or stores that sell kitchen gadgets. We hit a LSS, Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Angela is a bad influence, and I blame her for all my expensive hobbies. She won at both stores, she spent more than me in both of them! We had a great time though and both of us managed to find a few things that we will be turning into Christmas gifts. I even bought them early enough that they have a chance of getting finished! I am off work today and am going to start the first one today. Have a great day!
(and I know that Angela will still zoom in on that photo!)

Oh so cute - and there is just NO WAY I could have done that in 15 minutes! Fabulous! Such a cute image too. Like the little "Boo"!
Glad you guys had fun on your shopping spree. My sister in law do the same thing sometimes - and she picks up all kinds of stuff for MY basket!! HA!

Fifteen minutes, wow! I know for sure I wouldn't have been able to do it, my rpinter would jam up or something! And I understands about the shopping, I only enjoy craft shopping, other shopping leaves me snoozing!

This does not look like a 15 minute card at all. It's adorable!
