Topics I've Started

Terrible Accident I'll recover

25 May 2016 - 06:37 PM

First off, I am or will be okay. I had a terrible accident, but I am doing better now. I decided to go horseback riding, which I haven't done in quite a while. Well, I got on the horse and started out slow, and then we went a little faster, and then we were going as fast as the horse could go. All of a sudden I fell off and caught my foot in the stirrup and the horse was dragging me around in a circle. It wouldn't stop, it just kept going around and around. Thank goodness the store manager at K-Mart came out and unplugged the carousel.

Weekend Challenge 04/23/16

22 April 2016 - 08:34 PM

For those of us confined to living on the surface of the Earth, the fact that our world is mostly covered in water is a well-known fact. But exactly how much of our planet is made up of water?

 

In simplest terms, water makes up about 71% of the Earth’s surface, while the other 29% consists of continents and islands.

 

So today’s challenge is a color AND circle challenge with blue being the prominent color (71%) and green being secondary (29%).

 

Post your layouts in the Weekend Challenge Gallery, and remember to link your layout in this thread, and the April Challenge Chase thread.

 

HEREis my layout


9th April weekend challenge

09 April 2016 - 01:05 AM

I have a love for doors - the colors, size, styles, different and inspiring doors. Doors are the first thing you see when entering a building or house. (I have a board on Pinterest just for doors!) My challenge is for you to find a door that inspires you. It can be the the color, shape, or the embossed pattern/carvings, even the handle or window of a door. I am obsessed and want to visit the fairy doors found all over Ann Arbor, Michigan.

 

You can see them all here:

Urban fairy doors

 

Post your door-inspired layout in the Wildcard Weekend Challenge Gallery, and please post a photo of the door that inspired your layout.

 

Here is the link to my layout

 

And the door that inspired me. This red door
