So Sad...A Fond Farewell to CP4U

Creative Prompts for You is closing its doors, and I'm so sad about that. I've so enjoyed being on the team. It's such a fun challenge that really stretched my thinking, and I've made pages I never would've thought of making without that challenge. For our last hurrah, we did a combination challenge, and here were our prompts:

Nicole - use tape
Debbi - include a transportation image accent(s) (i.e., hot-air balloons, cars, planes, etc.)
Solange - use a childhood photo
Kaori - use metal embellishments
Here's the page I made. I printed my picture on the Bazzill, along with my journaling. Not sure why there's a streak across my face in the photo here--it's not on the actual page. I used the Studio Calico kit Partly Sunny, plus a few things from my stash.
And a couple of details... For the metal part of my prompt, I used an old Making Memories word washer, along with some brads.
And here's what I used for the tape:

I never shared my page from the last prompt, which was this image that I contributed, when it was my turn:

And here's my page. That's my Weight Watchers buddy, Dayna. We work together at the same school, and we happened to have bought the same shirt and jeans, so we thought it would be fun to wear them on the same day! I used the Noel Mignon Sonoma County kit. The photo above obviously inspired my color scheme.
And some details. Love these canvas flowers by Prima! I layered two and then trimmed a flower from a Crate Paper print and added a brad.

Those little circles are also trimmed from a Crate Paper paper. I added them at the last minute, giving them a little lift with pop dots.

What most caught my eye in the inspiration piece was the Japanese text print. I thought I had some patterned paper with Asian writing in my stash, but I couldn't find it, so I turned to the internet and found this table with Japanese characters.

And the tape in the inspiration photo led me to dig out this old 7 Gypsies gaffer tape, which I thought was a good one to use to symbolize that we are losing inches together on Weight Watchers.

You should go check out what the CP4U team made. If you haven't played before, now is the time! This is the very last challenge, and if you share your page by June 30, you could win a cool prize. This month's winner will receive a $30.00 custom designer stamp of their choice from JustRite Stampers.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and reading about my pages.

So sad to hear that CP4U is closing! Must lol on you and your friend wearing the same clothes to the school. It happens often at work where people wear identical colors and we used to have a disposable camera taking pics of people whenever it happend. Love your layout documenting this, lol.

You now pilot young children's lives!! :) I absolutely adore that layout and the colors are totally amazing. I like the effect of printing your photo on bazzill so much!!! now I need to buy me a printer, lol.

Both layouts are superb Debbie! I love the clouds, aeroplane and design of the first. I love the Japanese text table that you printed out for the second, the gaffer tape, the lovely flowers and all the lovely layers. All so pretty...
P.S. Thanks for visiting my blog. :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend...
