Did you know that Pat is playing hooky tonight? Yep and she asked me to cover for her. She is getting to spend some time with her daughter, Heather tonight. I know Pat is on cloud nine to have Heather teach some classes at One Little Spark Shop.

I was looking back to see exactly what number challenge this would be, But I found out something really interesting while blogging backwards. Wed. Jan 28th was the ONE YEAR Anniversary of her blog. Just how neat is that!!! Ok, guys & gals, lets throw the confetti, blow the horns, dance a jig, sing a song, pop the balloons, celebrate, eat chocolate, make that chocolate ice cream, It's Pat's Anniversary. But I don't want to hear any sirens from off in the distance, going to any one's home, because they are being too wild and disturbing the peace. *wink*

I had originally planned a different challenge, but quickly changed my mind. So in honor of this 1 year anniversary and Pat's dedication to bringing us a new Challenge each week, the Saturday Night Challenge is:

Make something that was inspired by Pat. You can do your own "take" on one of her cards or layouts, maybe use something on your piece that came from her shop, Just make something symbolizing PAT. Just make sure you list along with the picture of your project, just what was inspired by Pat.

Here is mine.

The frame with the heart charm on it was in the first birthday present that Pat had given me. I had been saving it for a special project, I decided this is it. Also the paper was a gift from Pat. Pat's Birthday is in February, and we all know what February's birthstone is, so I used the Purple CS card base. The DP was distressed using an ink pad Pat had given me. The sentiment, speaks for itself. See how easy this was. You can do the same with items purchased from her store, or just an inspiration you got from one of her blog postings. I can't wait to see what all of you decide to do. Let's show Pat just how much we appreciate all the hard work that she does for us.

Supplies used: Vintage Ink -Hot Cocoa- Ranger

DP - Crossed Paths - Designed by Shatrine Krake

Rub On - Tapestry by C.R. Gibson
