Twisted Tuesday Challenge#71 Keeping it Clean....and Green

Hey Everyone!

You know...I can appreciate a good, snowy winter like a good Canadian...but seriously?!?!  This is crossing a line!!  -19C today...it's pretty much been this way since Mid December.  And the snow...it doesn't stop!  Even for Canada!  yikes!  Hopefully the warmer weather is just around the corner!  (Keepin' the fingers crossed!).  Until then...there is another challenge up and running over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.  For those of you caught up in the winter blahs that just won't let up...it's a good way to cuddle up and get cozy with some crafting!
The Challenge: Keep it clean (i.e. no distressing, inked edges, etc)
The Twist: Use the colour green on your project.

Here is my take:
patterned papers: CTMH; flowers, jewels: Prima; date stamp: Autumn Leaves, die cut letters: QuickKutz
I must admit it was indeed a challenge to NOT rough up or ink up the edges of the paper or add paint splatter to the layout.  Kept it clean. :)  The bonus was I was able to put this layout together in less than an hour!  (HUGE milestone for me!)  I pretty much challenged myself to complete this layout for my DT inspiration in the amount of time it took for my littlest daughter to take a nap-which she rarely does for me).  All the papers from CTMH co-ordinate from the same kit (wish I had kept the title wrap with the papers).

I came across these photos of my first born taken when she was in kindergarten.  That smile is so...so...inexplicable.  So Mona Lisa.  I love it!  It's soooo hard to believe this one will be celebrating her first decade birthday this year! (*sniff*).  Where does the time go!?

Be sure to check out the details and the inspiration from the rest of the DT over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.

I can't wait to see what you create!

I would also like to submit this to the following challenges:

  1. I love this! I know what a struggle it can be to not distress. I have the same problem. :)
