so hard.

I’m finally ready to announce the RESULTS of my SWAP CHALLENGE post.

I had NO IDEA you would submit such clever title ideas.
I am seriously blown away.
Corinna said it best: This is such a fun idea……but you’re crazy for putting yourself in the position of picking one title. Don’t you realize how many awesome ladies are gonna be leaving you comments all weekend? LOL

Here are some of my MOST FAVORITES …

(this one was a close 2nd for it’s personal meaning for me this year!)

and because I cannot choose between these last TWO, I’m going to do TWO page swaps. This way we’ll get to see TWO different ways these photos can be put together and I’ll get to create TWO layouts (bonus!) SO … the WINNERS are:

Sheryl, who said, I would use this quote:
I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.
Georgia O’Keeffe

Heather W, who suggested this layout:
My 2 page layout on craft paper cardstock would be one big random stair step series of titles paired with the photos starting with the top left and working it’s way down to the bottom right with “All the way to CHA!” in the bottom corner.

Button me
Smash Me
Ticket Me
Bind Me
Color me
Tie Me
Glitter Me
Flag Me
Fly Me
All the way to CHA!

Congratulations girls!
Email me ( with your address and we’ll set this fun swap into motion!


  1. Congratulations to the winners!

    I, too, am stumped at all the creative responses. I think there should be an INSPIRE ME blog, where someone who is suffering from creative constipation can go and post a series of photos and ask for a world-wide response of idea. HOLY CREATIVITY, BATMAN!

    I’m excited to see the results!

  2. Congrats to the winners! it would have been real hard to pick.

  3. Way to go ladies! Congradulations!
