Dare #60

Hello Daring persons...
There can be heaps of warm fuzzy moments at this time of year (amidst the busyness)...saying thank you to your child's teacher, decorating a tree, watching a nativity play, singing Christmas Carols, eating cake...

So my dare to you is to get warm & fuzzy...the only requirement is to use some fuzzy texture on your page - like felt, velvet flocking, or something else soft to touch. You can choose to put some warm fuzzy feelings in there if you like too :-) maybe you could use this dare for a thank you gift for someone special...you just have to use some fuzzy texture!

Our sponsor for this dare is Niella & Bee from Random Kits & Pieces and the winner of this dare will receive a $20 voucher to be spent in their online store....but wait, there's more, Niella is also adding in a pack of 3 fat quarters that she was saving for next years kits - so you'll get what no one else has yet! I have used some of their bits in my layout below!

Sonya has been playing with this dare and here is her warm & fuzzy page perfect for this time of year:

Vicky has been creating with some velvet ribbon and using her warm & fuzzy sentiments about her boys:

Monique has made a felt wall hanging/frame for a photo of one of her boys...she has a couple more to make now :-)

I (Lara) used some felt alpha and some white felt circles...as well as some items from the sponsor of this dare - the strawberry paper bag, blue spotty fabric, the peg and some of the buttons too!

I also created a digi layout that uses some felt for that warm fuzzy feeling:

Sharon finally scrapped last year's Christmas morning photos!!


Lianne - felt and pom pom trim, fuzzy brads, pipecleaner branch with cute owl buttons I got from our sponsor Niella of Random Kits and Pieces, and fabric and a warm fuzzy photo.

Happy warm & fuzzy daring everyone, check back as there may be some more inspiration uploaded from the team.

The deadline for this dare is a little earlier than usual...Monday the 22nd of December with a winner announced on Tuesday 23rd.

You need leave a link in the comments of this post to your layout on a blog or on the flickr group or a comment to say if you have emailed it to Lianne (RANDLGRAY@xtra.co.nz) ...or it might get lost.... Just leave a comment to say it's done & where it is please.

After this the dares will be taking a holiday too, with a new dare on Feb 6th 2009!
