This week the 7 remaining designers had an opportunity to design their own fabric/textile, but for some this was a challenge in a challenge.

Your challenge #10: LEAVING YOUR MARK! Have you ever went looking for a specific paper for a layout, but have come back empty handed? Well I know I have. This week you get to change all that! You get to design your own 12x12 (white card stock) paper. Do you ever wonder what it is like for all of our favorite scrapbooking companies to put their ideas to print? Well I know I do. What would you do given the opportunity...........hhhmmmm? Would you design a digital background, stamp on it, paint it, paper piece it, etc., you decide.

This challenge is due midnight Tuesday April 6, 2010. Email your pics to


P.S. I was sorry to see Anthony go he was so funny/cute, he brought a lot of entertainment to the workroom/show!

Challenge #6 - Here are the entries!

Hi everyone,

Here are the entries for Challenge #6 - Through the Eyes of a Child. Mine is not done yet but Beth has graciously said for me not to stress about it and get it done when I can (I have her pics).

So sorry it's taken me so long to get these posted - I have had some stuff going on in my life that has prevented me from being at the computer mother-in-law was just given weeks left to live (she has cancer) and so we've been spending lots of time with her while we can. Also, we just found out that we are expecting our 3rd child! So I haven't been feeling quite like myself either. Anyway, enough excuses! I will try to be better from now on!

Here are the how everyone's turned out! Vote for your favorite (and tell your family and friends to vote too) - voting will end Monday, March 29th at midnight (MST)!

Thanks again for your patience with me!
Lucinda :)

CHALLENGE #9 TAKE ME AWAY.................

The 8 remaining designers had to split up into 4 teams. For this challenge, New York City will be the point of departure. Four distinctive neighborhoods have been selected based on their history, cultural impact and influence on fashion: Chinatown, the East Village, the Upper East Side and Harlem.

Well ladies being that none of us live in New York I was a little stuck on what our challenge could be, but then it came to me. Have you ever wanted to visit a far of land or even visit another one of our other 49 states? This weeks challenge TAKE ME sponsored by COSMO CRICKET. In your bag you will find a BLACKBOARD PHOTO BOX. You challenge is to decorate the outside of your box about a place that you would like to visit. For me it is PARIS (ooh lala). What is it for you: London, Scottland, Hawaii or maybe even New York. Feel free to add any items to it that you would like: chipboard, flowers, buttons, paper, ect. I might even use mine as a little PIGGY savings bank when I am done......... oh to dream.

P.S. I am working on getting us a guest judge for this challenge. Sorry this took so long to post mylifetime web-site has been down as well as my own computer has has a little bit of a cold or is it allergies. Oh well whatever I WILL SEE YOU ON THE RUNWAY. This challenge is due by Tues. March 23, 2010.
If you want to still participate with the flip-flop exchange it is not to late!

Friday, March 12, 2010


Hi Ladies, if you are anything like me (if you are than your are just the COOLEST!) you LOVE flip flops (I own around 25 pairs! NO JOKE!) I have been hiding my toes all these weeks with this rain, but now spring is finally on it's way! Now we can kick off our rain boots (who are we kidding kick off our sneakers) & show the world our cute little piggies (toes). So I thought it would be fun to trade flip flops, but wait there is gotta decorate your flip flops. It's up to you on what you want to do: ribbon, buttons, bling you name it. Send me an e-mail or leave a comment with your shoes size & favorite color & I will send you back someone else's info so you each can make a pair of flip flops for one another. HAVE A FLIP'N GOOD TIME!


Heidi instructs the nine remaining designers to meet on the rooftop of the Atlas, their apartment building, where they will learn about their next challenge. She adds, you're going to "channel your natural creativity." Hmmmm …

They are to create a look inspired by one of the four natural elements: earth, air, fire, water. Owing to the fact that Jay won the last challenge, he can choose any of the elements. The eight remaining designers must choose their element from one of eight cards, two cards for each of the four elements. Their order of selection is determined by the velvet bag.

So this week's challenge is MOTHER NATURE & is sponsored by LUCINDA FISH with STAMPIN' UP. You will find in your bag 2 12x12 sheets of paper (1 green & 1 with different stripes: grn., yell., blue) a sheet of coordinating stickers & 1 chipboard bird. You must design a layout about nature & how it's beauty inspires you. Feel free to use as much or as little of the product as you like, plus add anything extra to & let us see how creative you can be with your chipboard bird.

Good luck I will see you on the runway. This challenge is due by Sunday March, 21 at midnight.

CHALLENGE #7...............HARD-TO-WEAR!

You must also come up with a matching 3-D accessory/item. When you turn in your page you must send a pic. of your layout plus your accessory & tell what the item/items are that you used from the hardware store.
