Miss You, Love You Blog Hop for The Digi Bells for Elisabeth Bell!

I'm back home with my own computer, printer, and all is right with the world!  It feels good to be home but I tell you, I miss that little Lainie Loo Loo.  There's nothing like time spent with grandchildren.  It's priceless and one of life's greatest gifts.

We're here to celebrate the new release of Elisabeth Bell's Digi Collection's newest and I think, one of her sweetest images, called "Miss You, Love You."  If you've come to my blog from our Design Team Blog, you're on the right track.  If not, hope over there and start so you can see all the fabulous details about our blog hop!  Here's the lineup order:

Julie -
Sofia -
Jessica -
Alethea -
Rose -
Rina - 

Make sure to hop to everyone's blogs because the inspiration and designs you'll find are nothing short of spectacular!  

Let me start you off with my take on this precious baby:

I absolutely loved her!  She's colored with copics and yep, she's got stickles and Diamond Glaze all over her!  The soft papers are from K&Company and I tried not to let the card get too busy so the softness would shine through.  the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the pearls are from Studio 112.  I used some distressed inks around the image and the inside.  I loved working her up and hope you enjoy her.  Here's a couple of different views of her.

I've had a lot of "Miss You, Love You" minutes in my life.  I remember standing on the pier watching my husband's ship pull out.  It was always hard to say good-bye but you always try to take them with grace and dignity.  That's what I saw when I laid eyes on this cutie.  I think she's a must have and I'd hate for you to miss out on her!

Now hop on over to Sebrina's  blog and see what fabulous and amazing project she has in store for you!

A Sassy Villians Release for Sassy Studio Designs

Gotta love the fun releases that we have with some fabulous images from Lindsay from Sassy Studio Designs! She comes up with some of the greatest and fun images to create! This is the second day of our A Sassy Villians Release and we're celebrating with a fun blog hop! If you came here from my talented sister, Erin's, blog, then you're on the right track. If not, head over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog and start at the beginning. These are absolutely fantastic projects and I don't want you to miss out on a single one of them! Our theme of the blog hop is one or as many of the following favorites of each of the Design Team members from 2012:

Favorite Sassy saying or sentiment
Favorite tool to use
Favorite paper
Favorite sketch
Favorite technique
Favorite style
Favorite color
Favorite brand
Favorite embellishment....ribbon, flower, bling, mesh etc..

Here is a listing of the order of the blog hop:

Susan (Me!)

I've been in South Carolina with my daughter Nichole and my sweet little grandbaby, Lainie Loo Loo and have been having such a hard time with trying to use a new computer and not being able to download anything or print, I still wanted to participate in the blog hop and used one of my favorite images, Little Honey's Princess Aurora Honey. I thought she'd be appropriate in keeping with the theme of the release since Maleficient is in the release and she's my favorite of the Disney Fairy Tales! If you click on the photos, you can see the entire picture.   Sorry about the inconvenience but please hang in there with me until Wednesday, then I'll be back to normal!

Don't you just think she's the cutest thing? She's usually dressed in pink, but I loved her in blues. The papers are from one of my favorite companies, Authentique, and I love to layer and use different papers and patterns. I put lots of Stickles, pearls, and Diamond Glaze, some of my staples for my cards, and added some swirls from Close to My Heart. She's colored with copics (my go-to coloring medium), and I distressed all the different layers. Love the satiny pleated ribbon and just love everything about her!

As for my favorite project I created for Sassy Studio Designs in 2012, I chose my project for the Halloween Release we did and I got to present the Grimm Reaper:

I had so much fun with that project and loved the papers and all the embellishments I got to use. Hope you enjoyed it too!

Now head on over to Regan's blog and see what she has in store for you.  It can be nothing but fabulous!  Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!
