Hey there, Oddies!  Leah here, and WOO HOO!  It’s April, it’s the start of a new term with Some Odd Girl (I’ll be making the announcements on Monday and Tuesday!), and we’re getting this party started with a brand new challenge for the month.  And it’s a MONTH-LONG challenge!  Check it out!

We’re bombarding Social Media with hashtags #SomeOddGirl and #SOGAprilPhotoChallenge and today is #Day1 🙂  Are you up for it?

Show us your selfies and remember to hashtag on Instagram, Facebook, G+ and/or Twitter!  You don’t have to use all of these media, but we’ll be watching, and we want to have some fun with you! 

ANNNNND there might be a little something for people completing the whole month, so save this image, remind yourself to get your #SOGAprilPhotoChallenge on each day this month, and go camera happy!  Oh, and you don’t have to include things that are Some Odd Girl related, but bonus points if you do.  😉

And a huge thank you to everyone who played along with our challenge during the Paper Issues online crop – there were so many fun entries, and I’d like to give a shout-out to these crafters who rocked their SOGgies like nobody’s business!  (Winners for the crop are being announced TODAY!)

LOVE them all, ladies!  Thanks for showing your Odd love, and for rockin’ out the challenge!  Good luck, and congrats to all of the crop winners!

We’ll be back tomorrow with some inspiration from Anna, and HAPPY HUMP DAY!

Hey there, Odd friends!  Happy FRIDAY!  Are you gettin’ down?  🙂

Leah here, and I have a fabulously happy spotlight to share with you as we venture into another weekend… Monday, we HOP!  So today, I’m shining the spotlight on a card that seems to work with what we’ve got coming up… 

Our Oddies’ Project Board on Pinterest has been relatively quiet of late, so I popped over to the Linky Party to see who’s been playing along there.  And I saw this bright and cheery creation which reminded me that I have some Easter cards to make!  Check out this gorgeous treat box from Olivia featuring our spunky Bunny Girl Gwen clear stamp set!

So cute with those happy and festive papers, and those bold, bright colors just SING to my heart!  Love this, Olivia!  Thank you so much for sharing in our Linky Party!

Remember, Some Odd Girl will be sponsoring a challenge in the Paper Issues crop on Facebook, so stop by and see what our girl Kristy has up her sleeves!  We hope to see you there, and we’ll be back here on Monday with our big farewell event for the current Some Odd Girl Design Team!

 

Okay, I don’t know many people who have cake and just sit and look at it, do you?  It’s for eating!  Even the prettiest of cakes are meant to be EATEN!

Leah here, and HAPPY FRIDAY!  It’s Friday the thirteenth, to boot; is that a lucky day for you?  What are you up to this weekend?  Don’t forget our little giveaway is still open – CLICK HERE and leave a comment telling me WHAT MAKES YOU ODD, and I’ll be announcing a winner on Monday.  A winner of what, you ask?  You’ll just have to trust me when I say it’s a pretty sweet little something-or-other…  Maybe your Friday the thirteenth comment is lucky for you, too!

We threw a baby shower for a girl at work yesterday, and THERE WAS CAKE.  It was delicious.  So delicious that I ate three pieces (had to get some with chocolate and some with vanilla and some with both!).  One might say I DID have my cake and I ate it, too.

Our Pin of the Week is brought to you by our dear friends, Miss B Crocker and Mr. D Hines.  LET THERE BE CAKE!

Let me tell you the things I love about Yorlis’ cardCupcake Mae (clear stamp set) has delightfully rosy cheeks (that’s because there’s cake!).  The black paper mimics a signboard in a little cafe with its chalkboard feel – quaint!  Paper with cakes on it?  YES!  Definitely!  Muted colors of Mae‘s dress and the cakes go POP with the contrast of those pretty flowers.  And holy wow, Yorlis rocks the trims and textures something fierce.  Trust me, that’s just what she does.  And we love it when she shares her SOGgy projects with us!

Thank you for sharing this one, Yorlis, and for your pin to our Oddies’ Project Board on Pinterest!  You’ve absolutely earned our Pin of the Week, and I know you’ve inspired our Oddies today with your gorgeous creation.

And with that, I bid you a fantabulatious weekend and can’t wait to see more of your comments…  There are some brilliantly ODD people among us, and we are thrilled to call you our Oddies!
