Anything Goes Challenge No. 127 - Optional Twist: Masculine

SURPRISE!
Yes! We've decided to shake things up a bit and we've added an optional twist to challenge 127! It is a JFF (just for fun) challenge and for this challenge only, there will be THREE weeks to link up! We will have reminders for the next two weeks to keep you on your toes! :D Please do not let the optional twist keep you from joining us because we're still an anything goes challenge blog! I've always liked the 'masculine' theme. It takes me out of my comfort zone and isn't that what crafting is all about? Getting us to try different things and stretch our creativity? I know that's what I love about crafting! I hope you are just as excited as I am about this challenge!
Long before discovering I was to be a grandmother, I made plans to go up to New Mexico mountains with a friend where we would be without wi-fi. I was pretty excited about that! Since becoming a grandmother, I've been very torn about going. One day I am packing, the next day I decide I won't go so as you can imagine, I am driving people around me batty! lol
That is why we're having a three week challenge. I planned to be out of touch with reality... haha! For the entire time I am to be up in New Mexico. I teased my friend, who is from NM, and asked him if I needed a passport and would the water be safe to drink. Ha! He said he'd heard that many times before and I was so surprised! I thought I was so clever and original to think of that! haha!
Anyway, I hope you will join us for the next three weeks. My 'Dream Team' will be here for the next two weeks with some more inspiration to get your mojo stirred up enough to get you to wanna join us for some fun! Check out these awesome makes from my 'Dream Team'!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 126

Yay! I was finally able to get this written and posted. I had internet issues last night. I would write the post, click save and the wheel would spin and spin and then crash! It was awful! Especially, because my TV viewing is connected to the internet! I played a bit with my phone and then read all evening! Blah! lol
Thank you so much for being patient and for joining us for a JFF (just for fun) challenge! This marks our 126th challenge! I am just blown away every time I think about that! Check out some of the great inspiration pieces my 'Dream Team' have created to get the mojo flowing! :)
