Magazine copy cat party details in the making!~

I can't believe how much you girls happened to really like the idea of a magazine copy cat linky party! In fact, according to my stats that has been the most viewed post this week.  I must be onto something!
I just said to my husband the other day, I really need some new innovative ideas.
Hoping he would help me, because Mike is really clever like that.
In fact, he helped me come up with the Newbie linky party idea.
COOL BEANS!!~ we all need our niche' and I have found mine. Obviously, a hodge podge of stuff!
I like to have fun, and I bring that to you too.
It's nice to have a hubby who supports me, and inspires me to be the best that I can be.

SO Let's do it!
It can be from any magazine of your choice. 

It can  be from a craft magazine, Food magazine,etc...  which will challenge you to actually MAKE the craft, and COOK.

YOU must take a picture of the magazine image though, that is the point, and the fun of this challenge.
You may mix it up some and put your own twist on it of course.
However, I really want it to be as mirror imaged like as possible.
As you can see from mine, I added some delicious chocolates to the tea saucer. Other than that it was pretty spot on.
I will give us time on this challenge.  It is not as easy as you think. Be creative, have fun!.
 Don't go out and buy a new sofa for pete sakes! I am betting most of us have a lot around the house that we can use.
 How about we shoot for...JULY 1st I host this challenge? Is that enough time?
I picked up a magazine yesterday, and I have enough challenges for at least 3 times. So I plan on continuing this on my own, and if it goes well here, perhaps I will continue it as a party too.

This one I whipped out in 5 minutes.  Had everything on hand...
As you can see, I used different color flowers, however the same premise of the magazine picture above.

Hey gals don't forget the BLOG party is still going is the line up for the next few days left!
Show and tell Friday

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Remember that show that was on HGTV for a while...where they would use an inspiration room and then create it on a budget? That was one of my favorite shows and just disappeared! This should be a lot of fun, Deb! xo Diana

I, so..... am going to play this one. It's totally fun, totally right up my alley, totally a new idea. I would love to post a link when you are ready. But, for now I'll just start with the lastest M.L. Living and move on from there.

Aren't supportive hubbies just the best. The things they will do to keep us bloggers happy. I'm sure there is a hidden agenda there some how. But, who the heck cares. They let us get lost with others, shop for the blog and will even on a special occasion pose for us too.
