This is the entry I'm submitting for a challenge by Scrappin Kids.

Jonathan loves to watch Wheel of Fortune (American game show) that was shown in Singapore many years ago. This show is the only TV program he will watch. We tried switching him to other children programs but he wasn't interested, not even Hi-5. He has a toy that he likes but that's not his ultimate favourite cos when shown the two, he will definitely choose WOF. Initially, it was the colorful wheel that attracted him. Then it became the alphabets and words and the funny lines that Pat Sajak (the host) says. He also laughs at the mistakes the contestants make. And WOF is where he learned english and how to spell too.

I always do straight and safe designs. I haven't found the technique to go into the more elaborate and sophisticated layouts. Maybe one day I will try. But I hope I qualify for this challenge with this simple LO. I used silver embossing powder to emboss the "1ST". Wanted to put an embossed heart but ended up using the foam hearts instead because the embossing didn't turn out good.

Materials I used:

Heidi Swapp Chipboard Alphas, HP Photosmart Printer, Self-Adhesive Photopaper, Silver Embossing Powder, Chipboard, Foam Hearts, Blings, Cardstock for text-boxes and border and Scrapworks PP.

"You have watched WOF ever since you were one month old. It's the only TV show you will watch and it's fine by me 'cos it teaches you English and Spelling!"
