WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Time for a challenge! In honor of Beverley's big 40th birthday bash I am hosting a fun challenge. Here's the scoop-
It's a fab forty challenge. You don't have to use 40 things, the theme is FABULOUS. You have a choice of several items as well as a few must haves. Here are the fab must haves-
one piece cardstock
two pieces patterned paper
Plus choose three items from the list below-
Findings (brads, metal items)
Freebie (one item of your choice)
Here are the items that are free to use (they don't count as your free item, anyone can use them)
thread -regular sewing, not floss
sanding or distressing
trimmers, punches, cutters, etc...
1 color pen for journaling or doodling
The theme? What you think is fab! You can create cards, layouts, or altered art.
The rules- Please post a pic on your blog with a link back here when you are done creating your fab project. Due date is midnight EDT July 15, 2008. All eligible entries will be put in a drawing for some fun blog candy.

Any questions, please feel free to email me. Have fun and let's get celebrating Beverley's fab 40th!

This is such a fun challenge...In honor of Bev because she's FAB... here's a link to my blog with my completed challenge project.

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
