Thanks!! Viva La Verve Week 2

Great (not good!) Friday morning to everyone...it's my first official post as Guest Sample Designer for the Viva La Verve March challenges :) It's very fun to get the sketches early before everyone else :) The photos this week were once again amazing!! It was hard to choose so I went with my first gut reaction. The black and white made me think of this patterened paper and the "splashback" made me think of a splash of green ribbon. We call it a backsplash where I come from...what do you call it? The silver pearls mimic the silver hardware and faucet. This was so fun to create even if it's a little "out" there!! LOL I just loved making that gorgeous flower from Verve's Love's Flower set :) Verve is having their March release tonight and all day there will be challenges on their blog...check it out and then head over to the Viva La Verve forum and join us this month...you could be a lucky winner like me!! Yahoooooo!!! Have a wonderful day :)

Hey girl! This is just lovely. Perfect for the insp photo. I am not fond of this sketch, but you did wonders with it.

You will LOVE the release. Send me your private email...

Fantastic Maureen! Love the dots!!! OOoh I'm wishing I had way more kiwi kiss than I do!

Happy Friday!

I love how you created that fun polka dot background and then even added silver pearls in the center! Somehow I had completely missed that you were our guest VLV designer this month! YAY! And can I just reiterate once more that I am extremely jealous that you get the WHOLE new release for free?! I think you are the luckiest Verve winner out there!

I'm going to rush home today so that I can get stamping and creating for the release party tonight. I do have a baby shower later this afternoon, but should be home just in time for the release party! I can't wait to get me some more Verve!
