"Watch your language young lady!"

Hey Sweethearts! Sorry for the delay in Challenges/Tutorials. We are off track due to computer issues I am having (and my computer is only 6 months old) so this really sucks! LOL Anyhow, I am not able to upload any photos of mine to my computer at this time but I'd still like to share with you all what the Lollipop Girls created and to continue with all the fun there is to be had. I'll be playing along at home and will include my own creations in the Eye Candy Gallery to share with you all once my computer gets fixed. Maybe I'll even bug my neighbor to use their computer to upload some pics. LOL No....Seriously thinking here....I'll knock on their door tomorrow. hehehe

Here is our Fashionably Geek Challenge Winner, our new Challenge info. and our Newest Sponsor for you to check out....
You all came clean and admitted how geeky you all can be and trust me...we believed you! LOL The Lollipop Girls voted and finnabair came in 1st Place with her gorgeous "PURE" layout. Those puppy dog ears were too cute and we loved the way you used negative space in your creation. Plus, the overall design is just too awesome for words!!! Thank you for participating here at C.S.D. and for continuing to share your fabulous work with us. Congratulations on your win again!!! We hope you enjoy the fantastic vinyl rub-ons from E.A.D. Designs. Check out her layout and thank you to everyone for playing!
We're not the AVERAGE Paper Crafting Challenge Blog and we're going to prove it, yet again! The newest Challenge here at C.S.D. is....
"Watch Your Language!"

This "Watch Your Language!" Challenge will change your whole outlook on Paper Crafting, I assure you!
Just how so? Well, I'm going to have you all dig deep down and let her out. We're all women, I want to hear some roaring!

"WTF!" "OMG!" We're all a little guilty and have let it slip, most of the time without even realizing it. I know I have with all these damn computer problems lately. LOL So, what's wrong with putting it down on paper? Nothing! Bad words exist.

I'm going to start you off with a little test to see where you are all at "mind-wise" for this.

I'm thinking of a word that starts with F- and ends in -UCK. There are two obvious answers to this. For those of you who thought of a "Fire-Truck" we have a little bit of preparing to do. But if I'm right, the larger percentage of you thought of a different answer. Now am I right or am I right?

Yes, this may be a little iffy BUT....yes, the BIG BUT....that is what a "challenge" is all about! Are you up for it? If so, challenge yourself and think up something you can create in this Paper Crafting realm and use those naughty words!

Keep in mind that you don't need to over-do it. You can use the word "a$$" or "I3!tch" or the s-word, b-word or any other x-word for that matter without sounding too hostile.

If you have little ones and need to be appropriate for their sake feel free to use "symbols" or the word "beep" in place of the bad word. Use your imagination and go away at it! Most of all....have FUN!

Along with any challenge you have your rules and here are your DO's and your DONT'S....
Our Sketch Artist, Anam Stubbington, has created this Exclusive Sketch for us here at C.S.D. However, you DON'T need to use it if you have something else in mind.

You DO need to include at least 1 cuss word (or your substitute).

You DON'T need to create a Scrapbooking Layout, any Paper Creation will do.

You DO need to make sure it's linked up with Mr. Linky with "Watch Your Language!" as your post title so that it's easier for the Lollipop Girls to locate it when voting.

You DON'T need to play specifically for the prize if your here just for fun but keep in mind that the winner will be responsible for their own s&h.

You DO need to make sure your Paper Creation is linked up by the DUE DATE which is: Monday, October 26, 2009 if you are playing for the Blog Candy. Otherwise, feel free to share your creations anytime and we may just add it to the Eye Candy gallery at some point.

To get you motivated this is what the Lollipop Girls and our Guest Designer, Ally Serrato, have come up with....

Now, some of you may be aware that our Lollipop Girl, Michelle Jacknicke a.k.a. Twistedsoda Pop, lost her job recently. A job she held down for 10 years. Well, the whole experience helped her create this work of art titled....

"Shit Happens!"Meanwhile, at home....more specifically, in her Laundry Room at home....Our Lollipop Girl Jennifer French a.k.a. Orange Passion was having problems with her dryer. Therefore, she was forced to hang her clothes to dry (for 2 months straight I must add). Talk about laundry being your least favorite chore...try adding on "hanging clothes to dry" instead of having the luxury to use a dryer. LOL All of this because she thought that her dryer was broken. Little did she know, after her father came by and spent many frustrating hours taking apart the dryer he finally discovered that the dryer was set to "AIR FLUFF." After the embarrassment wore off from her forgetting to turn the dial back she came up with this.... In another household our Lollipop Girl, Jennifer Matott a.k.a. Sweettart, is pulling her hairs out and screaming at the top of her lungs (having one of them bad days) and wishing that everyone could just leave her the F#*! alone!.... UH-OH! Our Lollipop Girl, Jennifer Priest a.k.a. Butterscotch Scrapper, must wash her little boy off from his mud bath. I could only imagine the mess girlfriend! You turn your back for what seems like only a minute and come back to this.... Our other Lollipop Girl, Melissa Ferguson a.k.a. Cupcake is appauled by this challenge and will speak no evil, hear no evil or see no evil....j/k.... Across the ocean and far, far away our Lollipop Girl, Dr. Annika Prestwich a.k.a. Pink Coffee Bean is compiling a list of bad words in another language and using it for self therapy against some of her mean ol' patients and creating this here mini book (please view her blog to view the inside pages)....
Farther away than that is our Greek Goddess/Lollipop Girl, Elina Koutsouradi a.k.a. Sour Puss, who as you know is a cat lover but she does have a bitch as well....
Closer to home we have our other Lollipop Girl, Jenny Brannies a.k.a. Candy Apple Red, along with her son trailing behind her mocking her every word....

"God Damnit!" Then, there is our Lollipop Girl, Sandra Polette a.k.a. Razberry Dazzle, who shows us how she gets dressed up on Halloween....
Last but not least is our Special Guest Designer, Ally Serrato, who hits up concerts likes there's no tomorrow and gets up close and personal with Brittney Spears behind....let's hope it was just her seat that gave her all these back shots. LOL.... The WINNER of this challenge will be voted for by the Lollipop Girls of C.S.D. and announced on the blog on Wednesday, October 28, 2009. The WINNER will win a 309 Piece Collection Kit by Sassafras Lass called "Starry Night" from the Life is Beautiful Line.
The Kit Includes:
Acid & Lignin Free
80# Cover Heavyweight Scrapbook Paper - True 12"x12" Size
12 - 12x12 Sheets of Heavyweight Double Sided Scrapbook Paper
1 - 12x12 Sheet of Die-Cut Monograms (38 pieces)

I love this challenge. I had made this LO a while back after hearing the quote and figured it would always sit in my scrapbook with no one but my family getting to appreciate it. I revamped it a bit to make it even better and more gritty. Hope you enjoy!

Olgy said...

That puppy layout is super cute!

Oops, looks like my earlier comment was in the wrong place, it was in reference to the Pure layout in the "watch your language" post.

Anyway, I linked my layout for this challenge.
