Effie Trinket Sassy (2) by Sassy Studio Designs

I love the books and movie The Hunger Games.  One of my favorite characters is Effie Trinket because she's so over the top and outlandish!  Gotta love the girl who wants everything so proper and perfect.  The way she dresses just so chic and stylish.

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the challenge over at C.R.A.F.T. and the challenge is a color challlenge:

I chose to use Effie Trinket Sassy (2) because she can carry anything off!  I love the blue n her har and the lipstick!  She's really such a stylish icon!

Here's a couple of views of the side.

I love this paper from Authentique and wanted it to compliment her rather than take away from the image.

The blues are fabulous and such a perfect color for any season!  While I love everything about Christmas, it's a nice break from all the reds and greens, don't you think?  Come on over to C.R.A.F.T. and join in on their color challenge.

Fairy Faye Make a Wish by Elisabeth Bell for Elphine House Australia

It's a gorgeous day here and I just finished washing off half of the pool deck.  Life is pretty good right now!  It's time for another challenge over at Elphine House Australia Design Team Challenge Blog and our oh so fabulous leader, Lynda, challenged us to use doilies.  When I saw this precious little fairy, Fairy Faye Make A Wish, I totally fell in love with her!  You can find her here.

She's all colored up and just looking so precious!  Wouldn't you love to see this little dandelion fairy in your back yard?

Here's a peek of the inside.  I loved this paper underneath the doily and loved how it shows through the middle of the doily.  Call me crazy, but I liked it!

Love the pink flowers!

And Judy, I kind of cased the inside from you.  I like how it came out!

I'm giving her to Lainie Loo for her first birthday.  We're celebrating her this weekend and I can't wait to see that little slip of a baby!

Hope everyone has a fabulous day and skip on over to the Elphine House Australia Design Team Challenge Blog and use  up some of those paper doilies you know you've got laying around someplace!

Little Honey's Little Red Riding Hood Honey

It's been forever since I've posted but I've been busy!  I had a wonderful but busy holiday season filled with family, friends at work, work, and moving.  There was great food, time with the people I love and the magic of the season.  Although it was jam packed full, I wouldn't have traded it for the world.

I've missed posting and crafting so I'm getting back on board with that.  Today Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the challenge over at Crafting When We Can.  The challenge is to use your favorite things!  It could be your favorite image, color, technique, embellishment, whatever is your favorite.  It also is Try Something New over at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog.  I tried a couple of new things - working with flowers and adding some texture to them and stamping with a partner!  Here's what I chose:

I used Little Honey's Little Red Riding Hood Honey because she's one of my favorite images and Fairy Tales!  I love the show Once Upon a Time and the gal who plays Red is one of my favorite characters.  Love that show and can't wait to watch it tonight!

I colored Red with copics and Spectrum Noir markers and used some older Basis Grey papers.n  I added some stickles to her cloak and the buttons and baker's twine are from Close to My Heart and I made the flowers with my cricuit cartridge and Nestabilities.

Here is this beauty close up.  This image is exactly how I always pictured her, all bright eyed and beautiful!

I will confess that I had some help making her and here's my Allie showing off her treasure.  It tool a little longer to finish her but it was time well spent!  Hope you enjoy her and head on over to Crafting When You Can and join in and show us your favorite things and at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog and show us what you've tried that's new!  !
