Well...it's been AMAZING

The Rusty Pickle Amazing Race is over. :( I hardly know what to do with myself today. Honestly, I've found myself staring into space a few times. I'm a little tired, but I can't say enough how much fun the race was and how much I love the projects I've created with Rusty Pickle products. Our last challenge was to create at least 4 party themed items with any of the papers we had left. I chose to use the Island Summer line (as I did on my original submission). I love that line - and it is so bright and colorful...it just screamed 'party' to me. So I did a luau...which, not too surprisingly, is what many of the other contestants did. Here are pics of my entry - you'll see my drink tray, the cup sleeves, the drink umbrellas, the message in a bottle invitations with sand in the bottle, the menu, the lei, tiki lantern and party favor (hula girl with sand and shells).













The announcement for who made the Design Team will be posted on Monday, July 9th. Keep your fingers crossed for me! All the creations made in the course of this race have been spectacular - by ALL the racers! I am honored to be among such talent. I can't imagine voting anyone out - but it has to be done...so keep your fingers crossed for me (NOT to be voted off), would ya?

Here's something fun I want to share with you. The bottles I used for the invitations were Jones soda bottles. I have never bought those before so I didn't know they had little messages on the inside of the lids. When I opened them one by one to empty them out, this is what they said:
Bottle #1: try a new hair color (I JUST bought a box of hair color a couple days ago)
Bottle #2: You will make great gains in any project you undertake.
Bottle #3: You will have a pleasant surprise soon.
Bottle #4: Your fantasy will come true.

LOL...how's that? I'm not superstitious or anything - but I thought that was neat to get those messages on my final project before the announcement is made. :) cool huh?

For my friends in the USA - I hope you had a great 4th of July celebration. We watched the fireworks from our driveway (I love not having to go anywhere!). I did something to my camera though. I was fiddling around with the settings outside in the dark and before I knew it - it just wouldn't take ANY pictures. So I'm bummed. I desperately need to take a photography class - and learn more about my camera!
