Saturday Rewind - Let's look at who trimmed down with us this past week!

Well, our first challenge since returning from holiday hiatus and we have lots of pretty to share with you!

First up, Ms. Jess of Jess' Obsession and we're glad she's obsessed because it's eye candy goodness for us! Isn't this card precious? It's got beautiful colors and a clean style that is really nice to look at!

Our friend Casii also came back with a vengeance! Wowza did she create, obviously (unlike me - this is Rosemary typing) she did not suffer any mojo absence. Look at these adorable cards - clever, colorful, sweet, pretty (LOVE LOVE LOVE this)

Oh, and did I mention she made a gorgeous calendar to boot? Yep, she sure did and it is chock full of pretty and vintage elements and I love it (no, scratch that, I LURVE it lots and lots - lol, and I do too)

And our most fortunate stamper (and we're fortunate enough to have her play with us here), Elizabeth, who juggles all kinds of responsiblities and still finds time for cool projects that you will just love and be inspired by has made this card. What's not to love? It's got pretty colors, it's hinting to warm weather and it has texture and embellishment, and the sentiment is lovely. YAY!!!

Look at Kristen, she's a sassy one and this card of hers does make me giggle - I do hope your card's recipient isn't thin skinned (tee hee hee, THAT would suck - sorry, can't help it - hope it doesn't bug you - lol)! This is funny and hey, you used from your stash, so that always makes you feel good doesn't it?

Terry is also back to playing with us here at Opus Gluei and we are delighted to have her back! Look at this precious layout for her niece's scrapbook (lucky niece!). Terry showed great restraint and is using her photos and trimming down her stash of them! Excellent! (And you have to love a blog entitled Krazy's Place! that's cool)(and those kids are soooo beautiful)

Ms. Electra made a beautiful layout with embellishments from her button stash! Isn't this cool? She does great layouts and she is a doer - she gets those photos out and into her scrapbooks. Which is something I need to take to heart, and it is lovely to see her playing with us again. This just makes me smile and smile!

Weren't these all great to see? Please take a moment and head on over to your fellow Opus Groupeis blogs and take a look at all the great projects they do, not just the Opus Gluei challenges but all their creative goodness! Then stop back here on Sunday to see what the next challenge is! Here's a hint - if you trim down, you get in really good shape, right? Hmmm....shape did you say? hmmmmm......................................

Awesome group of projects, Ladies! It's so fun to see everyone's interpretation of 'trimming down' and to say 'why didn't I think of that??'.

Electra said...

Wow! It's wonderful to see everyone's great creations, I'm looking forward to the new year with all of you! Must go visit other blogs now.
