Blogger Challenge (Oct. 12th)

You wouldn't believe it, but I actually had my challenge done this past Sunday. I was so excited that I finished it ahead of time and knew I would be posting it on time as well! Well, my week didn't go as planned - does it ever?? All 3 of my kids ended up getting sick - the 2 older ones missed school this past week. I even got a touch of it and just feel sluggish and blah all over.

So, here I am posting now - finally got enough energy and umph to do something today. The challenge this past week was to make an ornament. Well, I saw this type of ornament on Lisa's blog the other week and knew I wanted to try it. So, I went with it. You can find a Tutorial on this over at Lisa's blog, which can be found - here.

Supplies -
Designer Series Paper - SU! Retired (I believe it was called Holiday Thyme)
Green ribbon
Mega Scallop Circle Punch
Scorer

Be sure to check out the other Blogger Challenge Players for their Ornaments - you just might want to decorate your tree this year with some of these!! :)

Great job with your ornament! I'll have to try these one day! Sorry your kids have been sick! Mine are healthy now, but the last 2 weeks have been rough... with one after another being ill. It's exhausting! I feel for you! :)
