Corrosive Challenge #223 - Hip to be Square

Here, there and everywhere...hip, hip, so hip to be square.  Come on, sing with me and Huey Lewis.  The new challenge at Corrosive Challenges is Hip to be Square.  All you have to do is make a square project.  Our sponsor is Oddball Art and I was given this fantastic image to use.  The prize is 3 digis from Oddball Art.  You gotta love that.

Lately, all I seem to need are sympathy cards and get well cards.  I never seem to have enough of either.  My mother-in-law has a very close friend that is going through some really tough health issues.  I wanted to make this card for her friend.  I hope she likes it.

Sydney and I went up to the studio and worked for hours on this.  Actually, we cleaned the studio for quite a long time before we started crafting.  What a mess.  We started by cleaning Sydney's studio first.  Here is a pic of her clean studio.

She was very upset that I removed all the projects she had worked so hard to create.  I felt bad and gave her some paper scraps and she happily began to redecorate her studio.

She worked for a long time and then she was all tuckered out.  Poor baby.  She does love to craft.  Just like her mommy.  I took her back downstairs and put her in her big room so she could take a well deserved nap.

Please head over to the Corrosive Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team created for your inspiration.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day.
