It's FRIDAY!

Yay for Casual Fridays
Are you wearing jeans to work today? No? Me neither...I have to wear my uniform...blah.*frown*
 But at least it is the end of the work week, and
the
WAIT.
IS.
OVER!

Today is the FIRST challenge ever issued by the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog... TEXTING.
 Woo hoo!


Get out your supplies, put on your thinking caps, and show us your mad texting skilz!
*chuckle*
Use text in any form you can dream up; PP, stamps, embellishments, etc.
I used a piece of aged text PP and a simple sentiment from PTI, against an alpha impression plate. Some melon, kraft, and vintage cream CS all aged with tea dye ink, and pulled together with antique brads finished it off.

What does "texting" mean to you?
Link up your project at the CAS-ual Fridays blog for a chance at an awesome prize from our sponsor, Crop Stop,


and the possibility of a super-special CAS-ual Fridays blog badge! The winner also gets bragging rights as the FIRST CAS-ual Fridays challenge winner ever! YE-HAW!

Go check out what the talented "Girl Fridays" have created just for you. You won't regret it.

See you there peeps!
*mwah*
