W2SB #17: Say Cheese

Update: Our link is fixed! (Thanks so much, Bobbi!) So, cards can be linked through May 28!

Wow!  What a great group of entries in honor of Earth Day!  Special shout out to Cebelica for her gracious participation as our April guest designer and to the Shopping Our Stash gals for playing along with our The-Earth-Has-Music Challenge.

Did you know May is National Photography Month?  Taking photographs and paper crafting are two ways we commemorate life events.

This month's challenge is to create a card or project inspired by that oft heard picture-taking phrase Say Cheese!  Maybe you'll choose to commemorate a grand event -- like a milestone birthday or big family wedding, or a quieter event -- like waking up to the smell of freshly-brewed coffee or seeing spring's first flowers.

Our "Say Cheese" Gallery

Let's see what moments and events our I-Teamers have chosen to commemorate.

This month, we are thrilled to welcome Diane as our Guest I-Teamer! Isn't her card "picture perfect" for the challenge?!? And, talk about some serious coloring skills! Thanks so much for joining us, Diane.  :)

Annie couldn't have designed a more perfect vintage card for her dad's 93rd birthday! This card is sure to rekindle a memory or two for her dad, the little guy on the left who is shown with Annie's grandfather and aunt.

Yep, it looks like Fritz takes Top Dog honors and his owner is in the running for Top Designer with this adorable card! It is just so fun and playful... and something tells me Fritz is pretty fun and playful himself. Too cute!  :)

Penny's card is a work of heart that any mom would love to receive! She's sure used an ideal layout to showcase those two sweet faces.  :)

Sybrina's little critter looks pretty darn happy to be sending greetings from the island to loved ones back home! Love the beachy colors on this card.  :)

As for my card, I went in a slightly different direction -- giving a whole new meaning to the word cheesecake!

This Month's Prize

What will you commemorate with your paper project?  Our favorite will win a trio of Halloween stamps -- perfect for commemorating those say-cheese trick-or-treat childhood moments. In addition, our winner will receive our W2SB Winner's Badge and be invited to join us as a Guest I-Teamer.
