Default FEB09VSNH – SAT. FEB. 21 – 12:00PM – YOU’RE MY OBSESSION – CHAT THREAD

Title: “You’re My Obsession”
Hostess: Tessa (shastess)
Keyword: FEB09VSNH
Day/Date: Sat. Feb. 21st
Time: 12:00pm EST

When love goes beyond rational it can become an obsession!

Like the song by Animotion

My fantasy has turned to madness
And all my goodness
Has turned to badness
My need to possess you
Has consumed my soul
My life is trembling
I have no control

I will have you
Yes, I will have you
I will find a way and I will have you
Like a butterfly
A wild butterfly
I will collect you and capture you

I am an obsessive person by nature – good thing I don’t drink or smoke!
I get hooked on things and HAVE to have them!

At one point I had around 100 pairs of shoes! Shoes are so great!
Gain weight lose weight shoes stay the same!
I have built an entire outfit from the shoes up!

TV and Book Series, I get into a series and go nuts! I read all 4 Twilight books in about a week! Let’s just say I didn’t sleep much!

We all have an obsession/addiction/fetish and I wanna know what it is – hopefully not a person –no stalkers please!
The Challenge: Use your obsession to inspire a card and create a card based on your obsession! Is it chocolate? Shopping? Stamping? Greys? Get creative you can find images online to print off for fun like I did for one of my cards!

I have two examples for you. The first is a Twilight card I made awhile ago using printed images and the second is about my shoe obsession. I just love that Bella and think she’s perfect for anyone with a shoe obsession!

Thanks for playing! Can’t wait to see what you create!

Here is the link to my Twilight Card TEAM EDWARD

And here is the link to my SHOE Obsession Card: BELLA SHOES


DON'T FORGET TO ADD a post to your card HERE to get the special VSN coupon code for Jacksonbelle Embellishments!

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY: 10:00 PM EST ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22nd

2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.

3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

4. It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

Oh food is a good one! I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about food now! Might have to go that route.
