Adorable Joy

Happy Friday to ya !  Can you believe we are half way through Feb, holy cow time just flies these days !  I thought things would be slowing down but that does not seem to be the plan in my life.  My oldest DGD is having her Basketball banquet on March 4th and I have said I would make the seniors on the team a scrapbook page there are only 5 of them so that is not to bad plus I will make one for my DGD and her good friend, plus getting other things and gifts together for all the teams, Freshman, JV, and Varsity.  So now you know what I will be working on for a little bit.  Not to mention I have a baby shower for #6 grandson Sun the 27th and then March 5th is my youngest DGS 2nd birthday !  I tell you I will really be ready for my vacation for Spring break.



It is inventory challenge #19 this time we were to use lace and ribbon....I used the new antique lace doohickey die from Mangolia-licious, with a little bow on top!  I just love this little image she is a Sugar Nellie digital image from Funky Kits, her name is "Joy Sitting".   I have followed the sketch and color challenge #53 from the Sugar Bowl.  She was printed on xpress-it blending card stock by copic if you have not tried this paper you are missing out I love it.  My image is colored with copics and I used a couple of prismacolor pencils to shade and add depth.  My DP's are from KC & co they are a stack I have had for years.  I have used kraft cardstock as my base and to back my image.  The flower is the doily flower doohickey die from Magnolia-licous, on which I added some shimmerz and curled the edges.  I used diamond stickles on her bow and apple. Little blue pearls are from my stash too.  Be sure to stop by my teammates, Christina, Danielle, Rene, Sandy and Jean to see the fabulous designs they have come up with.

Challenges:
Papertake Weekly - putting on the glitz
Sugar Bowl - Challenge 53

Thanks for coming by have a great day !
