Wednesday (without internet problems...finally) means a new challenge is posted at the Cuttlebug blog. But first, if you haven't taken the Provo Craft Survey regarding the Cuttlebug...please go to THIS post, and click on the survey link. It is really important to the company to find out where you want them to take the Cuttlebug machine!
Be Inspired 25 is all about Sheetload Shortcuts this week! They sent us some clear and frosted cardbases to work with, and this lovely sketch! Very fun to work with!! My card is directly below the sketch- I did lots of Swiss Dots embossing on this one. Do you want to know my trick to adhering lace paper to anything? Spray adhesive. I promise...it works perfectly.

So- your thoughts on American Idol last night? Danny and Kris stole the show last night- they were amazing! Danny has pretty much been a front runner since auditions, but Kris just keeps gaining ground every single week. My favorite performance of the night was Danny, hands down. I told my husband last night that I feel like I connect with Danny when I watch him sing, and he said he feels the same way. I don't think they needed to be so hard on Matt- his performance wasn't bad. Not the right song choice...I absolutely agree with that. But, he still sounded great. I do agree 100% with Simon...."Apologize" by One Republic would have been an excellent choice for his soulful voice. Even my husband, who HATES that song, agreed.
And I totally didn't get the judges falling all over themselves about Adam's performance last night- I didn't think it was that great. Especially when you compare it to last week. And what is up with the constant change to his look? It makes me think he is a total poser, and that he really doesn't have a true identity- it is all about gaining popularity. Alison and Scott did a good job, just not my favorites. And Anoop and Megan were both bad. Not good at all. I wonder if Usher saw that performance of his song by Anoop...yikes. Just bad. My prediction (& hope) is that Anoop and Megan will be in the bottom two...and Megan will go home.
Well, better get going for now! Have a great day!
