Challenge #6 Features: Thinking Pink

Hey, friends, it’s FRIDAY!  Which normally means it’s time for a new challenge in the Falling for Crafts series…BUT, this week, I’m co-hosting the Crafty Scrappy Happy Me party with the fabulous Jaime, which means our schedule is a little out of whack.  If you missed the party, be sure to stop by and link up all your latest projects and fun things…no theme this week, just link it all!  Next Friday, we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled program with a brand new challenge just in time for Halloween.  But in the meantime, let me share a few features with you from this past week’s Think Pink party!

I’m such a fan of these bright, fun Tissue Paper Flower Lanterns from Procraftination Station.  I totally think I need a few of these.  Where would I hang them?  I have no idea.  But I still need them.  Don’t you?  That’s why they win the “Must Make It Award”.

Have you ever seen anything as cute as these Reversible Car Seat Strap Covers from Sew Rockin’?  Well, besides that adorable baby…?  That polka dot fabric is fabulous, and the other side is a sweet solid pink for when the baby pukes all over this side you’re in the mood for a change.  The tutorial is great and shows you how to make your own…I’m thinking of doing some for Little Crafter’s big boy carseat just cause they’re fun.
Sooo…this is the “Doubly Adorable” Award winner for this week.
You are going to LOVE this Cupcake Pin Cushion Tutorial over at NatSprat!  It’s fairly easy if you’re handy with a sewing machine, and boy, oh, boy is it ever adorable!  Look how the pins are the sprinkles…ha!  I’ve been doing a fair amount of sewing in the past few months and my old pin cushion is just begging to be replaced with one of these!  NatSprat, the “You Put the FUN in Functional” Award is all yours!
{boy, I have fun making these up…giggle}
Wouldn’t you have loved playing with this Dress up Cart at Bear Rabbit Bear when you were a kid?  Heck, who are we kidding, wouldn’t you love to play with it now?  It’s just darling, and it even has a mirror on the side so you can admire your outfit…nicely done, Melanie!  You win the “Mama Wants to Play” Award.
Gorgeous.  That was my first thought when I saw this Autumn Wreath over at Broken Treasures.  Then I read the post and learned that she made all of those roses.  Out of paper!  What?!  I totally thought they were real.  Wowsers.  Looks like the “You Rock My Socks” Award winner for this week. 
I really want to make a bunch of these Clutch Style Gift Card Holders for Christmas!  After all, sometimes those make the very best gifts…and they always fit!  Crafting Rebellion has a great tutorial to show you how to make these little beauties…check it out!  I did, and this gets the, “I came, I saw, I pinned!” Award.
‘Cuz that’s exactly what I did!
The “Little Crafter’s favorite” Award goes to this Barnyard Cake from Ode to Inspiration.  Because it has a cow.  Which he has learned how to spell {along with the ever-so-appropriate, “Moo”}.  Meanwhile, isn’t it awesome?  I’m so impressed!  In fact, the entire farm theme party is just adorable…be sure you click on this one to see all the fun details, snacks, and decorations!
It’s time for this week’s coveted “Amy’s Favorite” Award.  Raise your hand if you saw this one coming…Beachy and Pink Bathroom Decor from Simply Cottage Love.  One glance and I was in love.  You know how I feel about beachy decor to begin with, and I think the pink adds a fun twist to what you normally see.  So fun!  And now I want to go to the beach……waaaaah!
Annnnnd…here’s this week’s most viewed post: Boobies, Anyone? The Salvage Collection has a great kick in the pants for all of us to remind us how important it is to take care of ourselves and be aware of our health.

    I am going to make something like those lanterns, but with fabric for my daughter’s room. Love them! You could hang them in a bathroom…I think bathrooms get neglected in the decor department.
