Profesional 'Blow'job..............Wait a minute, WHAT????

..................Yep, you read the title right - Professional 'Blow'job!!! This week at Charisma we decided to step it up a little and change our normal card challenges into a layout challenge. My LO was inspired by the sketch over at Unscripted Sketches - although I don't know if they will like me linking to them with this title but...........it is all in fun so get your minds out of the gutter!!!!

So background on my LO:


In April of this year if you recall I went to Tennessee on a scrappy retreat with some lovely ladies. Since the retreat we haven't been as close and this tears at my scrappy heart but what do you do. Regardless, the subject of my layout is Aymee. Aymee is just adorable and definitely girly. I just love her style and outlook on life. While we were in Tennessee before going up to the cabin Aymee decided to paint her toenails. She was in a hurry to dry them so she grabbed the hair dryer - and I grabbed the camera. While she was "blowing" her toenails I told her I had the perfect layout in mind titled "Professional 'Blow'job"!!! Since April I haven't done a lot of layouts due to time constraints with so much going on in our lives including a move, new jobs, getting settled in, school, etc. When Carly challenged us this week to do a LO to shake things up a little at Charisma I knew that this LO was ready to make its debut to the scrapping world - and most likely get me some nasty comments/emails but hey, lighten up, it is all in fun!!!!

So, get your minds out of the gutter and be gentle on me with this - it truly was done all in fun!!!

I also used this LO for a challenge I found during my blog surfing over at Creations by KW since it was a simple challenge to just do a LO.

I hope you got a good laugh from this layout. I truly do not mean to insult anyone, it is a lighthearted play on words for a very fun memory I have of our time together in Tennessee!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
