Some Odd Girl‘s Fond Farewell blog hop


Its almost the end of this term at Some Odd Girl and to celebrate the wonderful term with some fabulous girls we are having a hop featuring everyone’s 3 favorite projects from the term. Each stop will have a digi from one of those creations to give away and a big prize on the Some Odd Girl blog. Its also where you’ll find our full hop list, just sayin.

Before I show you my 3 fav projects from the term I have to say that spending the last year with these girls has been amazing! We’ve been like a family, ups & downs, not seeing eye to eye, sharing secrets, celebrating good times and hugs in the not so good times. These girls have supported me in a very tough time personally since Some Odd Girl opened over 5 years ago now and I know I’ve said thank you for their support before but I really can’t adequately express how much I love and cherish them for it. The next term is going to be different and to the girls that have been with me one term or a few I will miss you amazingly much having you with us! I feel like we’ve become great friends so you’d better not be a stranger afterwards, I will stalk you 😉

Before I get myself all teared up I really should show you my 3 fav projects. Click on the links to see more about them and some close up pics.


Witchy Mae Black & White Card


This card tops my favs for a few reasons. First, I really had fun with the black and white coloring on the grey toned paper, I NEED to do that again; Secondly the airbrush on the transparency card base was an idea that actually worked, much to my delight and surprise; Third, star vellum shaker!


Yeti Aurora Borealis card


Apparently I’m very impressed with my own ingenuity because this card is another fav for that very reason. The background on this card was a practice in “I wonder if this will actually work…”, and it did! Another experiment with the airbrush… I really need to do some more!


Apple Frame & Card

Honeycrisp Apple Card and Frame set by Kristy Dalman

Last up is my birthday gift for my bestie Leah. I heart her to tiny pieces and this was my way of showing it this year. I am really in love with how the coloring turned out on the apple (I was going for a realistic honeycrisp, go see close ups in the link), it really was a labor of love.


Well there you have it, my 3 favs for the term! For my stop on the hop I am giving away to a commenter, you can comment thru March 31st, the digi stamp Witchy Mae.

    You are so fantastic and sarcastic and I LOVE IT! It was so much fun doing CHA with you this year and being part of the Odd Elite (Oddlite? no…that, just sounds like odd-lite…which sounds like a gross beer) You are an inspiration and just a downright awesome human. I loves ya. Always and #ForeverOdd

    You know they say that “once you go ODD, you never go back” and that is just too true for me. I could gush and gush about Some Odd Girl and you and Mr Odd Girl, but needless to say I really am an ODD girl for life! <3
