Hooray for challenges!

Happy Valentine Eve all, With Valentines being my most fave Holiday, I have made a creation in honor of the most prettiest, pinkest, redest, loviest holiday evahhhhh! I really really love the way this creation turned out. For my image I used a most adorable Winter Marci from LaLa Land Crafts. LaLa Land are one of my new faves! They are so much fun to color. The sketch I followed is from Friday Sketchers.
My card stock colors used are Pixie Pink, Smooth white & Basic Black. I used my nesties Shapeabilities "Pendants" Decorative elements and Big Scalloped Ovals. See the scallop Black circle in the back? well, that pink deco element piece? I used bubblegum pink glimmer mist on that. You cant really tell too much but it does add a little bit of sparkle! The DP is from Bo Bunny and is called Crush cutie pie. Do you see the corners? I punched out the red heart side of the DP with my corner scallop punch and I also punched out some adhesive magic mesh and added it to the Scallop corners. I have been trying to use some of the many supplies that I have purchased over time and the magic mesh is one of those items. That is one of my new years resolutions, To try and use all of those supplies that I just had to have, I think we all do that. We buy it with every intention of using it but then it gets put into a drawer. I am really bad about that (grin! wink!) So anyways, my final touch is the pink,black and white paper roses around the sentiment.
The sentiment is a rub on from "The paper company.
I have also entered this creation in "The Color Throwdown"
"Craft your days away" & "One stop craft Challenge" Some of my most fave challenge blogs! Go on over and check em out.
Well, I am off for now. It's getting late and I want to get up a little early to make a special Valentine breakfast for my family in the am so I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines day!!

Hello everyone, I have been so MIA for so long. Not only did I attend the Winter 2011 CHA but I also was on a committee for my sons High School Athletic Boosters Crab Feed. The Crab Feed was last week and CHA was the weekend before that so my weekends have been pretty tied up. Whew! I think I am ready to jump into some challenges. So, until then, here are some photos that I wanted to share with all of you. CHA was such an awesome time. I cant wait till next year! SO, enough of my jibber jabber for now, Enjoy my photos and I will see you all real soon!!
