Challenge #53

Welcome once again to the OLL challenge blog.  Thank you to those who took part in the last challenge, not so many of you, but then man cards are never so popular.  Without further ado let's get onto our new theme.

Challenge #53 - Minimalist (white space essential!)

All you need to do to enter is leave your name and a direct link to your entry with Mr Inlinkz so we can visit your blog. If Mr Inlinkz has gone AWOL, please put your entry in the comments section. No problems if you don't have a blog, just e-mail your entry to the address at the top of the page and we will pop it onto the blog for you. We do love seeing OLL images and papers used in our challenges but it's not necessary. If you'd like to try some OLL products check out the freebies in the OLL shop.

As it's a new month again we have a new Guest Designer to introduce to you Mary (aka Big Mamma) of Big Mamma's Stampin House.  Mary is regular challenger with OLL and her work is fantastic.  Here's what she says about herself :

Hi! My name is Mary Sirls but also known as Big Mamma. I was born and raised here in Arizona and love, love, our “dry” heat. I am an Administrative Assistant for a Military Contract Transportation Company. I’ve been a single mom for over 10 years and have 3 wonderful two legged kids & 4 wonderful 4 legged babies. My daughter now lives in Seattle, WA and is starting her career as a teacher; my son is 21 and getting his life started and my baby girl who is 16. The other 4 are Brutis – 85lb lab, Muffin a poodle, Tyson and Gypsy are Chihuahuas .

I have been addicted to stamping since the late 80’s and then started scrap booking about 5 years ago. I just couldn’t live with out three things .... bright cheerful paper, stamps, and my Prisma pencils. I don’t think a week goes by without buying a new stamp or more paper. If I have to describe my style I would say I am whimsical,. I love cartoon stamps, anything that can be colored in. I love to color and the brighter the better. I just started blogging less than 6 months ago and have totally fallen in love with it. There is still so much to learn and I really believe this is the best place to learn, from your peers.

As usual our DT  have produced their brilliant inspiration
