50 Shades of Sassy and Celebrating 800 Members!

Everyone is talking about the Fifty Shades of Grey series.  It's hot, it's sexy, it's entertaining, it's dull, it's shocking, it's ____________, you fill in your thoughts on it!  One things for sure is everyone has an opinion about it.  But for me, today Fifty Shades is a reason to celebrate because we finally reached 800 members over at our Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet Group!  I'll take any reason to party and celebrate!  I love that there are 800 people out there in cyber crafting world that love the images that Lindsay creates for us to color up and play with as much as I do.  Not only do we get to build friendships with people we have something in common with, but we get some freebies along the way with this bunch!

Over at the group, Lindsay has a super fun extra image for us to have some fun with, so let's celebrate Fifty Shades of Sassy!  If you've come here for Alaine's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, here's the order:

Regan, our oh so fun and talented coordinator for this fun ride, has challenged us to use black, white, and grey.  Here's my take on Miss Fifty Shades of Sassy:


Isn't she something?  I had the greatest time with her!  This confident lady is colored with copics and Spectrum Noir markers and her shoes and clothing (what there is of it!) is highlighted with Diamond Glaze and the background is cut with my Nestabilities dies and for some added texture, I ran the grey oval through my Cuttlebug.  The paper is from the Black Currant pack from DCWV.  The brad and flourish is from Close to My Heart, the flowers from Recollections and the twine and brads are from my stash.


Here's a couple of peeks to the inside from each side.


Sorry that the pop up squares are showing!  Here's her gorgeous face up close:


Gosh, she sure does look sure of herself!


I love the sentiment!


Now make sure to hop over to Karal's blog and see her fabulous project she has waiting for you!

Laters, gals!
