Lol, April

Great challenge! Thanks for hosting. I know I've got some Butt uglies around that need to be put to good use!

Excellent timing, April! I just opened a new roll of toilet paper (patterned) & I have a few 'BU' stamps.

LOL, Veronica! I have faith in you! Remember. Ugly is (like Beauty) in the eye of the beholder.

I love this challenge. Can't wait to dig through my supplies for the butt ugliest things I can find. We are a pretty creative bunch so I'm sure no matter how ugly the things we use they will still come out looking pretty awesome.

My friend used to have a box of butt ugly things she would receive from swaps that she called her "Hall of Shame" collection.

That's the spirit, Snickerdoodle!! One of the funny things about me is that I buy some of my 'butt uglies' simply because they are so ugly

Found a piece of butt ugly PP that I purchased--must have been drinking that day. Also found a rak'd stamp. Not exaactly 'BU', but strange--probably why the rakker sent it to me.

LOL. I will definitely try to make my project pretty--pretty ugly. that is!

I usually get rid of Butt Uglies by sending them to the thrift store. But I will look and see what I can come up with.

I am thinking of one, but where is it?

Finishing up my 2nd BU. The shrooms from our 'private' challenge were asking to be used.

Found my stamps and yes they are ugly, but I remember when I bought them, they are so ugly that they are cute. But going to use them anyway. Can't wait to ink them.

Can't make a card that is so ugly that I can't use it - that would be a waste of my time.

But I can see were a combination of stamps could create ugly.

Again thanks for this challenge.

Here are two entries for April's challenge (where's hers?).

I used the same paper, but(t) the 'martian' one includes 2 of the BUs from our private swap/challenge.

Kind of regret not using the other side of this PP. It's uglier!

I just ran onto this challange. what a great idea. I have lots of BU papers that have come in paper pads, packs of papers, and some others have given me. I notice the deadline is the 14th. I may not be able to submit one by then, but this is such a great topic perhaps keep it ongoing? Thanks for a great challange.

zipper28, I'm so glad you found my challenge I can't wait to see your butt ugly creation! If you can't make it by the deadline you can still link it to this thread for us to enjoy

I'm headed to a crop in a few minutes, and I'm taking my butt uglies with me to work on

Sorry to see that there were only two projects uploaded to this challenge. I sure that Daniel and I wish there had been more. Maybe this challenge needs to be rerun.

I had fun with mine. Thanks for the challenge

LOL, Ann! Your BU just tickled me. 'specially since you & DGS got a chance to collaborate.

I know some folks are still having problems uploading their projects, but they can always link them to the thread.

Hello, April!

I'm late to the party but really wanted to play along. I created THIS AND used a resist technique paired with dry embossing. Thanks for the challenge!
