One week to go!!! {& BINGO words!!}

OK...chicks, only one week to go until the deadline for the January Girlfriend Of The Month Contest!!

Here's the scoop: You have a chance to not only win the title, but also a fun RAK! Your challenge is to create a LO with a new year theme. It can be celebrating New Years, your resolutions or goals for a new year, a "year in review" LO, life lessons learned in the past year, whatever! Be creative! Anything that you would scrap that has to do with a new year is cool! Here are the contest rules: 1. Create any size LO focusing on New Years 2. E-mail it to us at 3. The deadline for entries is Midnight (CST) Thursday, Jan 31st

I thought I'd share the New Year's LO I created for my 2008 BOM. I kinda went overboard with the sewing machine & distressing, but it was a ton of fun!!
I used Creative Cafe goodies. I love the colors in this line. The die-cut flowers are adorable and it even has matching felt flowers, shapes & words.
I used stickers to make a mask for my title. Just put your stickers on, brush paint over them, let them dry for just a few minutes and pull the stickers back off. Pretty cool technique!
I made a pocket and little file tabs where I wrote my goals and dreams for 2008. This LO is 8x8.

Hope this inspires you to create a New Year's themed LO and enter the GFOTM contest! C'mon, you can do it!!!
OPPS......I almost forgot...... BINGO WORDS!!!!! Here ya go:




Good Luck!!!
