Challenge Me Happy #47

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Can you believe it's June already?  Really?!  Time keeps marching on, and that means it's time for another fun challenge over at Challenge Me Happy :)  This one was fun...and probably one I'd never think to do on my own.

The challenge is to scrap about a NAME...the history of it, why you gave a name to someone, what a name means....anything to do with a name.  Fun, huh?

I decided to scrap about my first born's name...Reese.  It was at the top of my list for my daughter for a long time, and it pretty much stayed there.  My husband I agreed on a name that didn't need shortening.  My name is Melissa, but I've always been called Missy.  We compromised because he didn't want any confusion with nicknames or anything.  So we came up with a list of names, and although we had a few on it, Reese was our favorite.  And plus, I absolutely adore Reese Witherspoon, so it just stuck out to me. And now our little Reese looks exactly like a Reese :)

I used the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic line for this....I just LOVE it so much!  I did sort of a grid here, and I wanted to use all the main, yellow, pink and green.  I added some black paint behind the four squares to give it some separation from the black stripes and to add some dimension.

The winner of this challenge will receive a prize pack from 2 Crafty Chipboard!  You have until midnight on June 15th to upload your project HERE.  Remember, it must be a newly created project specifically for this challenge.

Go HERE to check out the rest of the DT's work and read about their names!  Some fun projects over there :)

Have a great Sunday, and thanks for your visit!
