SAVE THE TA-TAS!

October is here and so is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So wherever you are, whatever your doing....go to 2nd base on yourself and feel your boobies!

Today we have some "Tasty Tips" from our Guest Designer Lisa Whiteing. Lisa Whiteing lives in London but is originally from North Dakota. Please click on her name to get to know more about her.
Here are some of her clever "Tasty Tips" she wanted to share with you all....
-Use the mesh from your onion/garlic bags to create the "net" on your beachy Paper Creations.
-Pound your bottle caps flat to use for flower centers. Jones Soda works great as there is a fortune printed in each one.
-Create clear embellishments from your plastic packaging using stamps, staz on and slickwriters.
-Create texture on your Paper Creations with paint and various household things like toy cars, bubble wrap, your poofy bath scrubs, and your kids shoes (my daughter had the cutest Elmo and Zoe shoes and they had fun soles).
-Also, use your chipboard waste as a frame like I did here.....
Makes you think twice about throwing stuff out doesn't it? I love re-using stuff you never imagined possible before. Thank you so much for sharing those "Tasty Tips" with us Lisa! Anyone else have some of their own "Tasty Tips" that you'd like to share? Go ahead and link them up with Mr. Linky and let us here your ideas!
-------------------------------------
Since it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month I felt it only right to host a Challenge using PINK RIBBON on your Paper Creations to show your support for all the women fighting against Breast Cancer. For this Challenge we're being Sponsored by Tessa Buys from Precocious Paper. Embellish and chronicle your memories with Precocious Paper. From fabric to lace, recycled cardboard to crimped cardstock, and chipboard to buttons, Precocious Paper offers over 100 embellishments for your scrapbooking and crafting needs. Many embellishments can be taken off the page as brooches or hair clips too! For the scrapbook lover who doesn't scrap herself, Precocious Paper also offers mini albums and paper bag albums.

Mention C.S.D. when you shop at Precocious Paper between October 1-8 and receive 10% off your goodies! (She'll refund the difference within 24 hours after payment). 1 Lucky Sweetheart will win this PINK Blog Candy Package from Tessa's Etsy Shop. You may play along for FUN, but if your participating in hopes of winning this Blog Candy please post the Blog Candy from our Sponsor on your Blog for an even better chance at winning.

Enter as many Paper Creations as you'd like for this....
