Join Us at the Rush Party!


Today is the day of the "Bloggerette Sorority Rush Party" being held today at Some Days Are Diamonds (click on the widget on my sidebar). I am one of at least 137 members (perhaps more at this point) of this sorority.  There will be parties (this being the first one!); giveaways; tours and workshops.  Sisters will be sharing creations and ideas from home decor to crafting --- oh, there's going to be so much fun in the coming months!

Our first assignment was to create something (anything!) using this photo:
I wasn't sure what to create until I started rummaging through my stuff and found a piece of corrugated cardboard that was already shaped into a book! How lucky could I get?! So, I just covered it with paper from My Mind's Eye (the Bella Bella collection), added a Prima flower, some pink lace (gotta have the Pink!); a vintage card (rose); a doily sprayed with Glimmer Mist (more pink), a lollipop flower and the diamond shaped bling because the site's name is...Some Days Are Diamonds. I covered the inside with coordinating paper but have yet to add inside pages. My plan is to use this journal as a place to keep track of all the happenings of the Bloggerette Sorority.  
Oh, there were no rules regarding our creation, well, except for ONE.  We had to be in the picture with our creation.  Here I am, holding my journal:
Anyone can join this sorority. You can start at any time and get involved in future assignments, chats, etc. Please join us at Some Days Are Diamonds

Wishing you a Creative Day!
Lori
