Happy Friday and Happy 1st of October everyone! As you read this I should be making my way to Delaware to teach classes this weekend--its only a 3 hour drive this time so not too bad! I'm excited to meet my friend Anary finally (waving hi) and to meet up with Cindy Echtinaw (owner of Bildmalarna US and Stamping Scrapping Store) again! I'm actually happy to get out of the house for a bit because we have MAJOR teenage girl drama going on right now that is ugly, difficult and highly stressful! I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy I tell ya---ughhhhh! But I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I hope its not raining anymore wherever you are! I might be floating up to Delaware in my personal ark if it doesn't stop raining--blech--I need some sunshine! So stay safe, be happy and have some fun!

Since today is the first of the new month that means it's time for a new Copic Creations Challenge! Our lovely sponsor is Tiddly Inks (the talented artist Christy Croll)!! The challenge is to use favorite tones of orange in different ways not just on pumpkins, hee hee! And I adore all the Tiddly Inks digi images--the one I'm using today is "School Girl"! I decided to make a fun reader card---this would be great for a birthday girl and add a gift certificate to a book store or Amazon if they're a Kindle reader like meeeee!
Bo Bunny's "Learning Curve" Collection --the background paper is of worn pencils and books and I LOVE the primary colors. I added some fun accessories to match the colors--the paper clips and buttons I had in my stash. That FUN Bingo card is from my friend Jenni Bowlin's Collection HERE---I love all her vintage and beautiful papers and accessories! The black paper I punched with my spiral notebook punch by SU and distressed the edges a bit more.
Of course this "School Girl" is colored with Copics and the oranges I used are some of my faves YR18,YR12,YR01 & YR000. I colored her hair with E35,E31,E51 and made sure to color it so the waves popped! I added some Stickles to a few of the books and hair bow for some fun bling!
Now make sure to hop over to the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to join in on the fun and to see the other DT gals beeee-utiful projects with these fun images! I'll have a new post up on Sunday as I'm a lucky guest artist for Whimsy Stamps new release!!
