Last Train to Gluesville

Hey y'all!

Wow, Friday already, can ya believe it? Actually I can't since I've been thinking it was Thursday all week. lol Anyhoo, exciting announcement today as Gauche Alchemy is sponsoring the new challenge over at These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

TAAFOMFT is an awesome challenge blog where they pick a new "favorite thing" for every prompt. The prompt we're sponsoring is "Favorite Band" and boy was I excited to create something for this one. Or maybe I never mentioned my obsession with The Monkees?! lol To see what our DT made, check it out on the Gauche Alchemy blog AND you can actually see our DT PLUS the Favorite Things DT creations by heading on over to the These are a Few of My Favorite Things blog. We're giving away our last ACME kit so I do hope you'll play along! :)

Here's what I made:

I found this canvas picture on clearance for $1 so I covered that with Gesso, then I used a piece of Sassafras paper from the ACME kit as the background. The rest of it came together pretty easily since I let the patterned paper do most of the work. :)

The title says "Listen to the Band" which was the name of one of The Monkees later songs. I love this picture of cute! :D I also added the vintage Monkees button I got a while back (I have two so I felt safe using one here. LOL I also used some pieces from the Blue Streak and It's All Gravy, Baby Mixed Media Color Kits.

Again, there's an awesome prize up for grabs so head on over to These are a Few of My Favorite Things and link up your favorite band!

I hope y'all have a great weekend, anything exciting planned???
