Challenge Title: Stand Like a Flamingo!
Hostess: Resqbarbie AKA Denise
Date: Saturday, October 22nd, 2012
I was so honored to be asked by Lydia to hostess a challenge for the HYCCT event! My personal connection is probably no different than many of you...I lost my Aunt to breast cancer 7 years ago. She was a smart, funny, artistic lady...I owe all my artistic and creative abilities to her! She was so young, only 53 when she lost her fight. Every year I do something so honor her memory, this is just one of many things for me this month and I am so excited to participate in this event!
So to start off my month of breast cancer awareness, I participated in a breast cancer awareness event in my area of Florida called PINK OUT
! We had over 2500 people there to set a world record for the most people standing on one leg like a flamingo for 2 minutes! The flamingo is probably one of those things that screams FLORIDA
to everyone! We all have pretty pink plastic ones out in our yards. Mine I got at PINK OUT
and my donation went to help others who can’t afford a mammogram to get one.
So my challenge to you is be like a flamingo
and stand on ONE leg
! That means, use only ONE of each supply...one stamp, one button, one sheet of DP, one sheet of colored cardstock, one rhinestone
... (I know it will be hard for LuvLee, but I have faith!). You can use any combination of things but only one of each type of product (the card base, a sentiment stamp, and your ink do NOT count).
EX (my sample): 1 kraft card base + 1 tag die + 1 floral stamp + 1 ribbon + 1 string + 1 sentiment stamp = FABULOUS!
