Hi Regina, here's my 1st entry to this contest. The picture inspired me on a card that I wanted to make for a friend of mine who is going through a very difficult time in her life right now. My entry can be found at http://monatyza.blogspot.com/2008/07/mocha-latte-joe-espresso-java.html

The bonus is that this is one of my favorite color combos lime/olive green and brown.

The cricut cut I used is Accent #13 from AE (page 44), I welded it to the bottom of the base of the card.

Thanks for running another contest!

:) Nikki

Hi Regina, this is the first of your contests that I have entered. I was inspired to do so. I always read your challenges but never show my work. I decided that it was time that I did. I just couldn't get past the fact that this was a "Bra" ad. So here is my entry.
http://www.cricut.com/messageboard/tm.aspx?m=2603437

The cut is the Island girl top from PPDU page 42. The inside of the card I wrote.

A friend is like a good bra...
She makes you look good...
Lifts you up when you are down...
and is always close to your heart...

Awesome inspiration. I totally didn't notice it was a bra ad. I just thought it makes me feel like I should be exercising (which I am not!).

I was mainly inspired by the fence there and also the color palette. Here's my entry:

What a great contest! This will be my first time entering one.

The magazine page reminded me of a wedding photo of DH and I leaning against a railing. Here is the finished 12 x 12 layout: http://tinyurl.com/5erkmz

I must admit, I was already 3/4 of the way through this layout when I found your blog and challenge, but the colours just seemed to match so well that I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring.
