Sisterhood of the Traveling Bloggerettes

When I saw that Karen at Some Days Are Diamonds
was initiating a Blogging Sorority
I just had to join in with the fun.

Our "Rush Project" was to take this photo...

And use it in a way of our choosing.

And since I really find that paper collage is my first love,
I dug through all my vintage die cuts and post cards, stamps,
and images to put together what I wanted to look like a
sorority girl's college bulletin board.

And of course...
it had to be pink!

Oh, and another part of rush
was to include our photo with our project!

Add a little antique lace for a ribbon hanger.

I'm even wearing my pink "pledge ribbon"!

The sorority is still open,
just stop by Karen's to join!
No snooty cliques here!
She has lots of plans for "girlfriend" fun.

OK, is everbody ready for the "car wash"?

And if you haven't entered my Blog Anniversary Give Away.

book by Carolyn Westbrook!

Looking at all of the creative ways the sisters have used the photo has really inspired me. I was thinking I wanted to start over but I think I'll just save the inspiration for other projects. I love what you did.

Hey Deb,
I forgot to tell you how adorable your picture turned out. I should of thought of that. My computer froze up for 4 hours trying to print the picture out. So I had to let you know I had problems too. I am with you on that one. I downloaded a photoshop free trial thinking I was going to do all these fancy designs to the picture and it froze my computer to where I couldn't even print it out with nothing done to it. Any how yours turned out adorable. Sorry about the problems you were having as well. Kath'

Thanks for visiting me. Mollye
