Hello everyone and a happy Thursday to you! As you read this I should flying down to Florida for 5 days. I have a layover in Atlanta for 2 hours---big surprise as I seem to LOVE layovers, LOL! See what kind of trouble I can get myself into this time, hee hee---if you are a Facebook person you will see me chattering on there this afternoon during my layover. I will do my best to humor ya'll :) Then I arrive in Port St. Lucie at 2 pm and my good pal Pat Jaynes is picking me up, sweet thing that she is along with Dana who I will be sharing a room with. Oh my I hope I get some sleep, LOL or class might be CRAZY! Plus I woke up sick on Tuesday (thanks to my son) and I'm sucking on Zicam steadily and popping vitamin C---hope it improves before Saturday. Although my head pressure should be a fabulous treat on the plane with that pressure--maybe my head will just POP & EXPLODE, lol! I fly home on Monday and then I'm home for a few weeks before I head out again---so I've got a bit of down time coming (well down time at home but I'll still be working steadily, hee hee). So I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I will have 2 more posts (one tomorrow & one on Saturday so check in with me ok).

Today I'm sharing my project I did for the 7 Kids Challenge! Our hostess this month is Julie Glasgow and she challenged us to create a project using Mardi Gras colors -- green, purple and gold. I toned the colors down to pastel tones to match the softness of this super sweet Bildmalarna image called "Together" from The Winged Things Collection. Love these new designs, I want them ALL, lol! You can find out all the challenge details at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog and see the rest of the DT projects and how to play along with us too!
Zutter Distress Tool and then inked them with brown ink. The flowers are a mix of Primas and Wild Orchid rosebuds and tiny cream pearls decorate the side. The matting behind the main image was done with Spellbinders "Beaded Ovals" die---have you seen the NEW dies HERE---ooooh I loveeee them!
Of course this cutie is colored with Copics (V99,V95,V91,V000/YG63,G20/E11,E00) and the I added some grass around her feet. And some stickles of course for some soft bling!
