Prompt #1, June 2008

Ever wish that you could BE who you wanted to, to SAY what you felt like saying? To USE what you want to use when you create? Are you already free? Do you say what you want to, and fly the finger at anyone who tells you that you CAN'T use something because it's not acid free? IF you answered yes to any of those questions, then we'd like to welcome you to the gutter!! A place where you are free to BE. Free to DO.

We can't wait to play with you... browse around, CLICK those links!! There's lots to see here, and we want YOU to have a part in what we do. This blog is about YOU. It's about where you are NOW. Even if where you are now isn't where you want to be. Even if where you are isn't pretty. We love you no matter what. This is our FIRST POST!!! We'll have two a month. On the 15th and 30th. Every month, one of YOU will have the chance to post with us as our guest Gutter Girl. Come on in, grab a drink, take off your shoes!! I can't wait to see what our prompts encourage you to DO!!

DON'T FORGET to link us to your project when you are done!! If you don't have a blog, you can post it on flickr, and add it to our group!! Be sure to come back here and leave a link to your project no matter WHERE you post it, because, in addition to our prize below, we will be choosing one of YOU to be our GUEST DIRTY GIRL next month!! Gotta love a guest designer spot, right!?! Also, if you post your layouts in our flickr group, they will be included in our slideshow in our sidebar!! We are SO excited to have you here!! Thanks for playing!! Let's get right to it, shall we?

pigeongirl said...

yey i am a genius ...

now to actuallyl start putting things on that blog......

rachel whetzel said...

It worked!! I couldn't see a spot to leave you a comment on your blog, but know that I did go and look, and I love that you are playing with us!!

Scrappy Doo 2 u said...

Well DT Called and I tried to answer, this was my submission to your call!

You ladies all have the ‘hot’ and ‘feminine’ side of being a woman, I am not much for a girlie girl. Guess I fall somewhere in the tomboy, jeans and T-shirt kinda gal. Well with that said, I used that to fuel my creativity in the DT Call. Hope you can find the humor in it too!

Scrappy Doo 2 u said...

woops.... my blog is ....

Sandra said...

EXCELLENT Blog challenge - bookmarking and working on this one!! THANK YOU...i love the gutter. HAA!

pigeongirl said...

well i am enjoying the fact that i have managed to make a girly page with tights on it without having to lose my ungirly personality ...
the only type of pink that i do is on my hair ..
also loving the chance to match the paint to my hair colour ... may have to try that when i turn it bright purple ..

yep can you guess that the blog is ot being well cared for at the moment ... having said that i think that may be the first timei have actually directed someone to it so i better go and do something on it more often

rachel whetzel said...

PG, you may consider using your blogger blog for posting OR post in the flickr group. I think for your blog that you have now, you have to be a member to leave comments. Blogger doesn't require that, unless you tell it to, and that makes it super easy for people to leave comments. Just a thought!! Love that you are playing with us!!

Lis said...

what an awesome idea for a blog, i love it!!
Love the layouts from you girls they are fantastic, mine is done and on my blog.
Ive used the title from the song, journaled about how a 'bare it all' photo shoot makes me feel like a woman, and used 2 types of panythose to make the flower.

lara said...
