Hmmm party on the badgirls bus, new creative challenges to do ohh what's a girl to do

Well last night was a real late one, don't you just hate it when you have that idea stuck in your head for a layout or an OTP and you can see it so clearly in your mind but it just dosen't want to come together when your working on it, grrrrr I swear it took me ages just arranging things on my layout to get it just right...
I stopped by Badgirls yesterday and found out that my little Paris project made the Bad girls party list for the week so how excited was I, to be picked by one of the Designers for the weeks layout/otp was just a big highlight for my day.....
Of course when I was in the forum I noticed the new Creative Challenges forum and decided that each month I want to do at least two of them .
Here are the challenges for March

So I have done the Inspiration challenge Scrap the Song, the song I chose was "You can't always get what you want" I took this one from the Glee Soundtrack, truthfully I think that song speaks for itself so no more said on my choice of song....
Now seeing as I couldn't get the You tube video for Glee's cover of the song (copyright issues) I got the Rolling Stones version of it instead so if you wanna hear it then click on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0jyKabLHVc
Now I really love playing with masking tape so I wanted to make that my focal background with lots of layers, distress inks to highlight and bring up some colour, a few scraps of Prima, some tulle over my photo, of course I have to have some lace trim and flowers to bring it all together, so there you go my layout is done.
So if you want to get creative and be a badgirl then click on this link http://badgirlskits.com/mb/viewtopic.php?f=146&t=9724 sign up and join in the party bus madness.........
