Magazine copy cat challenge is ON!

Well I sure have been a busy little bee!
How about you? 
This I thought would be a fun challenge for us all to take on. 
 It is not as easy as you would think.  For my project, I had absolutely everything but the flowers. 
 I bought all the flowers marked down because they were in some sad shape.  I am not planning on them getting any better, but at least they looked nice for the challenge.
Can I just say it is hotter than all HECK here. When I was taking these photo's I was dripping wet.  Mike said I was just concentrating hard.
I had my camera on setting P, however I was not crazy about the tint it sets off, so I changed it to Manual.
This was a faux copper pot I had around.  I had the pretty flower stencil, the white outdoor stencil paint, the Krylon Bahaus gold spray paint, and my mind set off in a tizzy!

And there you have my magazine Copy Cat challenge.
Oh Now where to put it.....
This will do for now.
Can't wait to see what you all come up with....
Have fun visiting one another as I do not anticipate this to be a super large party...which is good, no reason not to visit more gals and make some new friends.
Please just LINK back to me, I do not have a button for this party...perhaps I will next time.

Can't you believe it. The one who is always late, always trying to keep up with all. Well, today thanks to the Exercise of the Mind you put me through. I will be the first, the first to comment, the first to link to the party. I know Un-Frign'-believe-A-ble...

I just walked in from getting the weekend manny and peddy. Of course, I have new Polka Dot toes. Blue with Red and White dots. Too cute, of course.

Cheers to you Deb, as I will be staying FOREVER YOUNG,

Kate - The G.B.

OK, I'm back... I forgot to mention when and if you ever get tired of your yellow basket, send it my way, it would be perfect with my TEAL one.

And yes, it was mighty hot and buggy out there last night. But, you do have an eye and your's is sooooooooo much better than the one in the magazine.

Ok, I'll leave you now to go check out the others.

Thanks again.

Whoa! You did ANOTHER magazine copy cat project... I thought that the wooden screen with the pots on it would be your entry but you have outdone yourself with the yellow planter. I hope you do this "challenge" again...I am already thinking of what I could do next.

I like your tub and flower choices better than the original. I like the way you are fearless in painting things. Your projects always look so perfect! When I painted those two trays for your spray paint party, I made a mess of them. Why is it that I can paint pictures, but I am not coordinated enough to use a spray paint can? *sighs*....

I also like how you did the side by side with the magazine picture and your copycat picture. :D

Thanks again for hosting. I had more dang fun than should be allowed! :D

i must tell you how upset and dissappointed i am to not be participating in this. i had actually gone to the library and took out 13 magazines to read over this holiday weekend...but i looked thru them early, figuring what perfect timing. and there was nothing for me to copy! they were all country living, and i don't have anything that really fits that bill. ugh! believe me, i tried. oh well. i will be more prepared if you ever do another!

This has been the funniest party I've been to in a long time. OK, I don't get to many parties, really. But, please let's do this again. That Tuscany crate is too die for cute and I so want one. Amazing what happens when I get out of that yarn bin.

What a great theme for your party. I took some liberties with the challenge though and linked up an older post, as I'm going away tomorrow night for seven weeks so I didn't have time to do a proper challenge. I would love to join in again some time. Thanks for hosting it.

Hi Debbie,
You did an awesome job! So many creative people in blogland! I will have to join in your next one. I am currently doing a giveaway on my blog. I am giving away a pair of black INC pants in a size 8. All the interested people have to do is visit my blog and leave a comment as to where you would wear the pants and what kind of top you would wear with them. I am selecting a winner on Monday and will post the name. You have a wonderful blog, Debbie! Have a great evening! xoxo Kim

Oh wow Debbie! I like your copycat much better than the original! I want to copycat your version! I am bummed I did not get to join the party. I worked late every night this week and did not remember about the party, let alone have the time. Please tell me you will be doing this again soon? Is this going to be a monthly meme?
