For this challenge I decided to use this CC Designs image - Swiss Pixies Brigitta on a Tree Stump. With images this large, I like a more simple layout to keep the focus on the image itself, so for my embellishments I punched 3 butterflies out of one of the Basic Grey Sugared papers I used and added them to the "scene". I did add some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the butterflies and the flower petals, and then some stickles to the flower centers, the mushroom spots, her wing and her pony holders.
We would love to have you join in our challenge this week and see what you come up with using this recipe! Stop on over at the KL Stamping N Scrappin blog for all the challenge details and to see some wonderful eye candy from the rest of the Design Team.
Last night we went to the Spring Carnival at the kids' school. They always have so much fun at that every year and the nice thing is that almost everything, aside from two games and the food, is free! This year they had 3 big climbing/slide inflatables, a dunk tank, a bunch of games for the kids to play, hair painting, face painting and temporary tattoos. There were 2 new things this year was a jail, where kids could have their friends put in "jail" for a quarter ~ that was a big hit ~ and one of Alicia's classmates was dressed up as a clown and was making balloon animals, flowers, hats etc ~ I am amazed at how well we could do that! I got to try my hand at some hair painting on the kids for awhile and it was actually pretty fun!
The weather here on the other hand is anything but spring like. It is cold and rainy and just icky! I have had the worst cough for the last few days that just won't stop and this weather really isn't helping it any.
Well today, I'm off to make jewelry with my Junior troop. One of Tyler's classmates mom makes some amazing pieces, so I can't wait to see what the girls will make with her ~ I think I may even make one for myself! Then Tyler is off to a swimming party at a hotel ~ fun stuff!
Enjoy your weekend :)
