Congrats to all our winners from the first SOG Only Three Hearts Challenge! You can see them HERE 🙂

Today’s challenge is open to all but if you use a Some Odd Girl Digi on your entry you get TWO entries into the drawing! What better incentive could you have? And with our Retirement Sale going on there’s no better time to get one to play with (sale runs thru Feb 26th). Our challenge for today is to make at least 1 hand/homemade element/embellishment and use it on your project. You could make your own flowers or cut hearts or whatever you’d like! It just needs to be handmade. Our Odd Girls dove right in to this challenge…

Our fabulous Guest Odd Girl Stacey used Angel Kaylee and made a cute handmade flower
Kellie used cutie Valentine Tobie for a card to steal your heart with a handmade tag
Leah used Star Bright Tia (January’s Freebie!) with more of that kraft love with a handmade flower to boot!

Kristy used Mooey and made a handmade sun and grass for him to lounge in 🙂

Asa used Guitar Kody and made some fabulous cardboard stars!
Robin used Flower Girl Mae (March 1st release!) and made gorgeous felt rolled flowers
Zarah used Hula Kaylee and made such sweet ribbon flowers!
Sarah R used Love Letter Kaylee and made a gorgeous bling/heart element
Caz used Bed Time Mae (a past freebie) and made a simply stunning medallion flower
Sarah M used Baker Kaylee and used an awesome crocheted flower!
Carlie used Roller Mae (March 1st release!) and made that fabulous flower!
There’s all sorts of things you can do! This challenge will be run thru March 8th, when the linky closes the challenge is over 🙂 Creations must be new (no backdating) and linked to our blog so others can play too. You are going to be playing for two images of your choice from our shop!  And with our next release dropping on March 1st there’s no better time to get a couple freebies. You can see some sneaks this week on my blog if you need a little motivation 😉 
Play along!

Thanks to everyone who played!!! Like I mentioned earlier, our next challenge is open to all, though we definitely encourage a Some Odd Girl digi so you can get those 2 entries! Join us back here tomorrow and see what’s up our sleeve. Also don’t forget our Retirement Sale goes thru the end of the week, get those images before they’re gone!

Welcome to a new week Oddies! I hope you had a productive crafty weekend filled with fun! A couple heads up, our first SOG Only Challenge ends tomorrow night so don’t waste time and get your entry in! Also our Retirement Sale that’s going on now will only go thru the end of the week so if you want some of those images, at 50% off mind you, get them before they are gone FOREVER 🙂

Today I’ve got for you a fun project feature from our February Guest Odd Girl Stacey Brady. She has made an awesome Food Journal using Baker Kaylee and an A5 sized folder. Here’s how Stacey describes it:

I decorated a little A5 folder to use as a food journal. I’m always watching what I eat (and often failing!) and so thought it might be nice to have a special place to scribble my food related notes.

What an awesome idea! Who “likes” going on a diet and watching what you eat? If you have to Stacey’s right, MAKE IT FUN! You’re going to be much more likely to reach for a folder that is as cute as this, with all the cupcakes on the spine and front and the fun happy colors than you would be if it were drab (like that salad with no dressing we’ve all had, am I right?) Now I know you’re thinkin to yourself, what other things can I perk up with a  lil make over? Sky’s the limit! Reach for it! Just make the things you surround yourself as happy as you want to be, like Stacey 🙂
