U CRACK ME UP CHALLENGE

For this new challenge in April the Lollipop Girls and I wanted to make you LOL. We thought with all the April Fool's jokes going around we know that this month will surely be filled with laughs and giggles. We don't want to just stop on the 1st of the month.....we wanna keep laughing all throughout the month. Having a bad day? I hear laughter is the best medicine!

So, for this first April challenge you are asked to dig out those photo's buried in that deep, dark corner of your lives that you have hidden away so that no one will discover them. Come on girls, you know what I'm talking about! We wanna see the funny, hilarious, embarrassing memories you have that you wouldn't dare scrap before this. It can be of yourself or if you'd rather embarrass someone else, feel free.

To help inspire you to scrap these photo's are the Lollipop Girls with their creations that will be sure to have you cracking up at the mere sight of their embarrassment.....or on their loved ones account. Here's.....

ANYTHING TO SEE YOU SMILE

by Peppermint Swirl

The story as told by Peppermint Swirl: My 7 yr old daughter decided to decorate my face with leftover Halloween makeup. The kids thought it was hilarious.

WORKING HARD FOR THE MONEY by Lemon Zinger

The story as told by Lemon Zinger: These are proofs from when the company I worked for was doing a brochure. The company selected a different photo of me and then gave me the rejects! In these photos I look like I am working really hard. LOL!

FLOUR GIRL

by Pink Tootsie

The story as told by Pink Tootsie: This was a photo opportunity we managed to get of sweet Chloe all covered in flour from making animal shapes out of Pizza dough, we never laughed so much as we did that night...

R&S
by Lemon Drop

The story as told by Lemon Drop: I left my camera at a friend's house and asked her to bring it back to me one day when we were meeting for lunch. Apparently they thought it would be funny to take pictures on the way to lunch. The ultimate payback -- a LO about their escapades! :)


FRIENDS by KitKat

The story as told by KitKat: me and my bff Essandra (she's on left)-Here I am striking a pose, trying to be all cute and as soon as my sister said "one, two three-say cheese," she made this face! This'll teach her next time cause now she'll see that I WILL scrap these kinds of pics too! 10 takes later and we never got the perfect shot :)

DUH! by Chocolate Pretzel

The story as told by Chocolate Pretzel: This is my 15 y.o. brother. Yes, he was surprised! :) Being a teenager, he is "all that". When I was home for Christmas and we went anywhere, he always had to get "shotgun". Bad idea when your older sister is in the back with a camera....he turned around quick to see where the red light was coming from. I can't wait to post this on FB so all his friends can see! :)

STUFFING MY FACE

by Pink Coffee Bean

The statement in Pink Coffee Beans words: Here it is - read it and weap ladies... Or look at the picture and die an awful death. I NEVER thought I would scrap those horrid pictures. :P

WHEN WE THOUGHT GAWDY WAS COOLby Snap Crackle Pop

The story as told by Snap Crackle Pop: This is a LO about myself and my BFF's back in the day when 'Gawdy' wear was all the rage. Yes, Yes, those are shiny pleather glitter skirts - fake fur white coat - and don't even get me started on the chunky 4 inch heels we are wearing! To top it off....we weren't even going anywhere special, just Taco Bell. Yeah, those were the days. I was attempting to make this LO a little gawdy as well to get the overall effect of how seriously ridiculous we looked :)

BRINGING SEXY BACKby Cherry Lolita

The story as told by Cherry Lolita: The things you do to make me laugh. I had told you to pull up your pants and quit sagging them. So, you pulled them up WAY high and began dancing all nerdy. You were watching out for your Dad and your sister in case they came walking into the room. I love these little episodes you do for my eyes only. They are always way out of your character and they make me laugh so much!
