Inventory Challenge Time!!!!

It's time for another challenge with my fabulous fellow crafters!  This week's these was HARD: make your own designer paper!!!  I'm (as many of you are) addicted to paper so this was a true challenge.  Here is what I came up with:


I used these three stamps to create my DP.  (Why is there a Victoria's Secret catalogue there?  I put it under my paper when I use a glue stick to keep my table from getting sticky...I get like 3 a week for some reason!)






I recently discovered Crystal Lacquer and I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed now!  Lol!

Please stop by and see the beautiful work of:

Danielle
Christina
Cathy Lynn
Nadine
Sylvia
Kathy

Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a fabulous Easter!

Rene :D

Good Morning Rene! WOW Girl you had no problem with this challenge. Holy Cow what fabulous results! Great stamps and I too love the lacquer on those balloons. Oh by the way you should be getting free underwear from Victoria's Secret too. They seem to send my daughter free coupons every month! You are too funny and I'm impressed with the girls new playroom. Happy Easter to you and your family!
Hugs, Cathy

Awwwwww! This is so adorable! You did such a great job creating your own dp - honestly - it's just perfect. And look at those balloons! I thought at first that you had drawn white lines on them to make the shiny but then I noticed that in the next picture the white line had changed! Awesome job on the whole card!!! Hugs...Barb <><
