Monday Mania--Guest host!

About a month ago, I received an e-mail from my blogland friend Amy Young. She had asked me to be the Guest Host for today's Monday Mania challenge over at Club Anya & Friends!! Of course I said "YES"! I was totally honored and humbled that Amy asked me. I've been a huge fan of Amy's artwork and awesome stamp designs for quite awhile. So it was only fitting that I used one of her Sprout creations for this challenge.

My challenge for today's Monday Mania is to "Pierce it, Punch it, Piece it"! Create a project using ALL three of these techniques. Those are the requirements to qualify for my challenge (diecuts don't count as a punch), along with using a qualifying TGF stamp. Upload your creations to the TGF galleria by Saturday May 15th. I will view all the entries and choose a winner to be announced on Monday the 17th. That winner receives a single TGF stamp of their choice!

You can see all 3 of my challenge elements in this photo. For my "Pierce it", I used my piercing tool and piercing guide to pierce around Chelsea and my sentiment. "Punch it" was done using my latest go-to EK border punches. And "Piece it" was done by paper piecing Chelsea's skirt with the matching BG paper from the background. I based my layout off of Jen del Muro's Sketch For You to Try #34. Another new sketch challenge I decided to try out. I think I'll be using this fun sketch again.
I can't wait to see all the fun and unique creations you all come up with! Thank you for playing along with my challenge and Club Anya & Friends! And thank you Amy!
