Once in a Blue Moon- versions 1 and 2.....

The challenge on the Gingersnap Creations Blog is "Once in a Blue Moon", (we have 1 or 2 in Jan., depending on what you believe)....and as challenges go, this baby really beat me up bad! The challenge is to follow one of the clean & simple tech's that Ali has posted from time to time. I choose to add a piece of ephemera to mine, to meet the challenge. BUT....as you will see, this sweet Moon Guy just wasn't "me" at all.....he was "plain", "clean", "simple", "unloved"...and "unwanted." So....to meet the challenge, you have version 1................(be sure to scroll down to version 2, please)...

"Ohhhhhhh, not me..... said I"!!! So I dressed him up a bit, and now Mr. Blue Moon has a heart, wings, a nose stud!, a crown and grunged edges. He is much happier and I am too. This is much more my thing. Stamps are from Artfull Illusions. Sorry Ali, I really, really tried! Thanks for lookin'...hugz...
