Today is the day of my Alicia and Ashley's DI competition and I want to wish them, their teams and the other teams at their school "Good Luck". I have seen both of my girls teams run through their skits and as long as they do today for the judges what they did for us, they will be great! No matter what the outcome is, DI has been a wonderful experience for them, and they have learned a lot.
Today also brings us the weekly challenge at KLSNS. This week Kristine challenged us to be "All Boxed In" and create either a box or a basket. I saw these woven baskets a few weeks ago and thought I'd give it a try, and while it is a bit time consuming, it isn't all that hard to do, and the end result is beautiful, besides, with Easter coming up, it was the perfect project!
I decided to use this adorable Sugarplum image from the CC Designs Sugarplums Spring Kit . I colored her with what other than copics (and for those of you wondering, no I still did not find my BG05 marker (or the other two missing items)...and it is driving me nuts ~ I have looked everywhere and even went through the garbage can...nothing. The image was cut with nesties, and then I added some stickles to her apron and the eggs, and a little purple pearl for the button of her shoe.
Visit the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and some wonderful eye candy from the rest of the Design Team. We would love to have you join in on the fun and for entering this weeks challenge, you have the chance to win a surprise Easter package worth $15-$20!!
