Memorial Weekend Challenge! RAK/Giveaway

Hi all my crafty friends!  I am so excited for this Memorial Weekend.  I am going home to visit family and attend my nieces HS Graduation!  Congrats Taylor!  In celebration of the long weekend, I thought it would be fun to have a Crafty challenge.  Here's the story and the challenge......

Story
Every night when I go to bed, I look at this lamp that sits on my nightstand and think to myself, 'That design would make a cool layout.  I really need to create something using that as inspiration.'.


I love the funky, geometric design, and the simple, clean lines of the lamp.  (BTW - it came from IKEA!!!  LOVE that store).

Challenge
Create a project using the lamps design, color, or style as inspiration.  Link your project as a comment to this posting. 
Not interested in participating in the challenge?  Become a follower and leave a comment saying you have done so.  If you are already a follower, leave a comment that you are already a follower. 

You will recieve one chance for the RAK for each project you create (and link provided) and for becoming a follower (or leaving a comment that you already are).  I will randomly choose a winner using a Random Number Generator.

1.  One entry for participating in the challenge and leaving a link to the specific blog posting in the comments below.
2.  One entry for becoming a follower and leaving a comment that you are now a follower.
3.  One entry for leaving a comment that you are already a follower.

The challenge is open until June 3rd at 12:00noon (Mountain Standard Time).

To get you started on the challenge and get those creative juices flowing, here is the layout I created for the challenge. 

Titled 'A Dogs Life' (how appropriote) 

I can't wait to see what you create!!





Oh yea...here is a sneak of the RAK...

 Have a great week and enjoy!

I used to have some PP like your lamp shade, and may still have a scrap. I am not sure if I'm going to have time to do your challenge, but great inspiration piece.

I'm following your blog. Your lampshade immediately reminded me of a piece of old Sassafrass paper I had. Here's a link to my layout:

Wowzer Tina, what a fab RAK! wish I had seen your post in time! Just like Marks & Spencer dresses the nation (UK), IKEA furnishes the Swedish nation. We've got the world's first and largest store almost next door to where we live. You'd love a browse in there! Mwah!
