Blogger Challenge, Week #36


I think it's week 36 anyway. I missed last week as I'm a total blonde and did this weeks as last week, totally missed a week in there. I thought I would get around to posting one, but I didn't and I'm sorry about that!

This week our challenge was to use the layout on page 44 of the Spring Summer Catalog - "with deepest sympathy". Unfortunately I was making a sympathy card and I love how it turned out even if it was for a terribly sad occasion. I did change it up a bit by using my hardware below the picture instead of above it.

Make sure you check out the Blogger Challenge Logo to the right ------------------> below for a link to all the players. If you choose to join, please post a link to your sample, I'd love to see it!

Sorry for the dark picture!
