Rush Day and Friday Foto Collage Challenge

Hello Everyone,
First I want to tell you about the Sorority I joined. Karen over at Some Days are Diamonds has started the Bloggerette Sorority and I just joined up today. Heck my college never had Sororities and I always felt I must have missed out on an important aspect of my education; so when this opportunity arose to join one I knew I had to go for it.

Tomorrow is rush day for the sorority and that means we were required to make a project using a special picture, have our picture taken with our project (probably the only real time picture you'll see of me - so scrutinize now. LOL) and then post to our blogs by Friday.

My name is Penny and I hail from Illinois - State of corrupt Governors.

And since I just found Karen this morning - my project is not of the same caliber as some of the Ladies who may have joined weeks ago - but I did give it the good old college try.

I will try to make more complicated projects as we go on.


Also up is Friday Foto Collage day - the rules for this weeks collage was to use a body, any body and attach a different head.


Well like I told you before every thing, I make has to be pretty to me, so although easy to do, this challenge did not really appeal to me - but I continue to keep plugging away trying to expand my creative horizons. So using two pics from a 1988 Victoria Magazine this is what I made. Ok go ahead and laugh get it out of your system now I don't want to hear any snickering later you understand. Pellie has not gone stark raving mad - nope, not yet - any way.

If you made it through this post do come back Saturday to see "Genghis in Wonderland and our Mad Tea Party"

Hugs,
Penny
