Dilly Beans - Abbie Framed(2)

It's been a while since I made something for fun.  Being on 2 design teams keeps me hopping!  I've been an admirer of Dilly Beans for a while now, just a different look.  I love love love these big eye girls!  Soooo cute!  I did buy a little creepy cute, art journal type digis that are out of what I usually purchase, but hey, I'm stepping out of my box.  A fellow DT member for TSB, Miranda, works a lot in Neocrayons that are water soluable, and she makes the most fabby backgrounds.  I used the neocrayons on this background in pink and orange.  Sooo totally awesome.  I'm entering the following challenges: - Friendship - Best Friends - Anything for Kids - Ribbon - Anything Goes

Glenda - Sassy Studio Designs

Dare to be Sassy Thursday - Hats off to You!  All that is required is that you use an image with a hat, crown, bandana, something on it's head.  I chose to use Glenda!  Here are the details!  I printed her out once full page, adhered the printed digi to blank cardstock, leaving the bottom adhesive free so I could tuck the tulle in there, then cut her out.  This made things a bit more sturdy for my stand alone Glenda.  I cut her off just below the belly button.  Then I gathered tulle and adhered it between the layers.  I glammed her up and sprayed adhesive on her new tulle skirt and sprinkled glitter on it to jazz it up a bit.  Ha, I even glittered her eyelashes!  She will look so cute on a gift bag, mirror, locker, anywhere you can stick her!  She is so stinkin cute!  Just another way to use Lindsey's fabby designs!  I'm entering the following challenges:

I'd like to introduce you to Effie Trinket #2  - Isn't she Fabby! I thought it would be fun to try to create a mockingjay pin with my cricut without overpowering Effie, and I just love the outcome.  My sassy sister, Kate, has gotten me hooked on Tulle.  I like to tuck it here and there for a little girliness.  Can you believe how the time has flown by?  Already another  SASSY STUDIO DESIGNS RELEASE and HOP.  Lindsay has WOWED us again with so many SPECTACULAR designs.  The theme for this release is flowers. I needed to include flowers on my project as well and tell you what my fav flower is.  Actually I have 3 - and you probably guessed I'm a floral perfume scent person, not the musty, earthy scent like a woodland fairy (my daughter is a woodland fairy scent) LOL!
1.  Lilacs, the yard smells so beautiful when they are in bloom - Jessica McClintock perfume smells so lilac yummy;

2.  Peonys, I just love them as well, except for those pesky little ants that want to come in with my bouquet, and they don't last very long - I do have a peony scent, it's called Peonys; and

3.  Carnations - they last forever and ever and ever and ever.  I've had tooo many roses over the years never even open and bow their little heads.  Anyhow, carnations come in all colors, last a long time, and that makes me - - well, happy!

Back to the details of the challenge:  Grand prize - 3 images, but you have to comment on the SSD Blog to be eligible, and 1 image each for 2 other people for commenting on the Design team's blogs along the way.  You have until Wednesday night to enter since it is such a long hop.

Here is the hop order.  I've listed them all if you get lost.  If you made it here from Linsey's blog (she is our guest designer this month, and her stuff totally rocks), grab something to eat, you must be exhausted!  LOL!  Thanks for coming by, and lastly, you need to hop on over to Kate's blog to drool over her project and leave her some love.  She is so stinkin talented and an enabler to boot, she uses the coolest stuff, that I then go out and buy!   I should just give her my money and let her go shopping for me then just send the box to me!  Hope you had an enjoyable day!


I'll be entering the following challenges:

Ooh La La - Sexy Mare Antoinette - Sassy Studio Designs

Sexy Marie is just tooo darn fun to create.  My last example of Sexy Marie Antoinette, well let's say she was more traditional, powdered wig, more clothes.  I decided to make her blonde this time, and well, alter her dress, instead of sleeves or a mid section of her dress, I chose to leave it skin tone - hence, "OOH LA LA" was born.  Boy is she hot!  That's one thing I really love about Lindsey's designs is that you can change them to suite your needs by how you color them in. You can take it up a notch, or down a notch.  Check out my last Marie post, then this one and you can see what I mean.  I went all out with the bling on this one as well, even sparkled her lashes. Don't forget to join us for the blog hop tomorrow for the new release and chances of winning some of these FABULOUS new designs, tons of inspiration, and the DT chat Saturday night.  I'm entering the following challenges: - Mother's Day/ Feminine Card - Father's Day/Masculine/ ribbon or trim - Birthday Boys - Card for Male - Receipe - 3 or more pearls - Use your Favorites - Sassy Studio Designs, Gem flourishes and tulle. - Birthday - Bling Bling Bling - Let's Hear it for the Girls - Birthday Card with Sentiment

Cowgirl Debbie - Sassy Studio Designs

Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge this week is a sketch:

My take on it was Cowgirl Debbie "YEEEHAW".  I thought a sheriff's badge would be cute and knotted twine for a border.  Love the barrel she is perched on as well.  You have a chance to win some sassys of your own, now who doesn't like that!  Remember, if you use a SSD image for the challenge, you have 2 chances to win.  I'll be riding off to the following challenges: - For the Boys - All about Boys - Punches or die cuts - Ribbon or Twine

Smoochie Artist - The Stamping Boutique

The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring this week, and their theme is "I Love you Mom".  Well needless to say, I made a page for my own 2012 Mother's Day pic with my kiddos.  I wanted it bright and cheery.  I thought I was pretty clever hand drawing a smoochie eye to make the eye heart u!  I don't know what those little puzzles are called, but I loved them when I was little!  So I made my own.  Also, check out the ribbon rosette.  I had a bunch in my cart the other day to buy, and said to myself "huh, you know you could really do this yourself ".  So that's what I did, I took a 3 inch piece of ribbon, folded it in half, ran a running stitch along the bottom, and gathered it tight, then added a pearl.  You can really crank a lot of these out on a road trip!  So, I'm definately going to make more of these!  I'm entering the following challenges: - Mother's Day with Ribbon - Word to your Mother
