No Girls Allowed!

This week's challenge at Totally Papercrafts is definitely one for the guys. In fact - "No Pesky Girls" are allowed! Our sponsor this week is Alota Rubber Stamps. Alota Rubber Stamps is offering a generous $20 gift certificate to the winner of this week's challenge, so be sure to play along!

This was a bit of a tough challenge for me, as the mom of two girls and self-admitted lover of girly things like the color pink. Fortunately, Sally-Ann of DigiStamp Boutique came to my rescue with this cute new Funtime Dan offer.


My layout is based on this week's sketch from Card Positioning Systems:


I had been looking for the large dot Cuttlebug folder for forever. I finally found it (on sale!) at Joann.com a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun to use it with some DCWV cardstock and then sand it to expose the white core. Cool!

Be sure to check out the other Totally Papercrafts DT members' cards and leave them a nice comment if yo have time. :) Then play along for your chance at the $20 gift certificate from Alota Rubber Stamps!
