10 Minute Craft Dash

   There are times that I really need to stop second guessing myself and just jump into my crafting without over analyzing every button or brad. Recently, I found a really fun (new to me) blog called Pretty Pink Posh where you are challenged to create something in 10 min. or less! 

     A challenge? Bring it on! I love trying something new. I was allowed to get all of my supplies together and also had a color palate to work from (see the little flags above). With those guidelines, I set my timer and set to work. Knowing I had to leave to drive for carpool soon also helped me to be speedier than usual! When all was said and done, I had this cute little card created. 

Perfection? Not by a long shot but I got it made in exactly 9 minutes and 47 seconds. (Full disclosure: I did stop the timer when I misplaced the leaves on the log and had to look for them. My left elbow was the culprit). Here is the official time!

     This was super fun to do and I am now a follower of Paulina's blog! I am excited to have found a blog (to add to my many) that inspire me in some way! So a big thank you to Paulina for providing that!
     Thank you for stopping by today! I have a question before you go:

What do you like to see the most in a blog post?
Scrapbook Layouts?
Mommy Tips?

I always have so many ideas running through my head, I'd like to know what you are looking for to help narrow them down! Happy Friday all!
