Roll the Dice with Paper Issues: Daily Rou-Teen (Fancy Pants Family & Co.)


I'm playing along with the Roll the Dice challenge at Paper Issues for the first time (and boy was it fun)! This challenge is based on the roll of two dice. The number on the first die defines how many stickers to use on your project (six). The number on the second die came up as a 2 which means we had to use 2 tags on our layout. Each month is different so it's a different challenge every month.



Add your finished project to the Roll the Dice album in the Paper Issues {Friends & Fans} Facebook group by May 2nd to be in the running for a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store.

Notable Quotable with Paper Issues: When It Rains (We R Memory Keepers High Five)


April's Notable Quotable challenge is now live at Paper Issues. This challenge is based on quotes. Michelle posts a different quote every month and you make a project based on it, whether it's inspired by the whole quote, just a word, the colors, etc.


Here's April's inspiration
:

In case you're wondering how I was inspired by the quote, I liked the chalkboard effect so I used chalkboard paper for my mat, the raindrops inspired the umbrella and the word "gray" inspired me to add the piece of flair. :)
