Proof

Ok, like promised, here is the mini album I made for Rusty Pickle's Amazing Race submission.  I have called it "Proof."  Proof that the boys are best friends.  Proof that they love each other.  I decided to make this album after I found them fighting and one said "I hate you!  You are not my friend!"  I remember the love/hate days of growing up with siblings...but I never want the boys to forget that they love each other.  Now when I catch one saying something like that I can go get out my handy Proof album.  :)  (LOL...They may come to hate it!)

First, let me explain the bag.  I was inspired to make a bag to hold my mini album, I was inspired by the leftover piece of chipboard from a scalloped circle.  So I made a bag with a clear, plastic front so you can see through it and see the front cover of the album.  :)  Well, here are the pics, remember you can click on any of them to make them bigger...









Some of you have asked about the Amazing Race.  Well I did post about it, but...Rusty Pickle had a call for their design team in the form of an "amazing race".  People had to submit three projects.  They narrowed it down to 12 finalists, and I was one of the lucky ones.  Now I don't know too many details, but here's what I know...

*  RP sent out boxes (FABULOUS boxes) to all of the finalists.
*  The race will begin after everyone has received their box.  They are aiming for Monday, June 22nd.  
*  There will be a series of clues, site searching, and challenges.  
*  The Amazing Race is anticipated to end around July 7th.  
*  6 lucky designers from the 12 will be asked to join the design team.
*  I keep hearing how fun it was to watch the Amazing Race last time Rusty Pickle did it.
*  I also keep hearing how the participants got very  little sleep during that time!  

Wish me luck!   And I seriously hope you all follow along!  For more information, stay tuned to the Rusty Pickle blog, and they have also created a fun Amazing Race page on Facebook.  Become a fan...  :)
