April Showers for Sassy Studio Designs

It's time to start a new term with Sassy Studio Designs and I'm so excited to be starting term 2!  Everyone knows how much I LOVE me som sass and I'm just thrilled to be presentibng with my designing sisters again.  I'll miss the ones who have decided to move on and am so anxious to work with our new family members.  More about them in the next few days!  It's Thursday and that means that it's Dare To Be Sassy Thursday and this week Kathy challenged us to create something with the April Showrs theme, using anything liquidy or with the rain theme.  Here's my sassy:

This is Glenda Sassy from our Yellow Brick Road Release and I think she's fabulous!  I colored her in copics and lathered her up with all kinds of stuff!  I used Stickles on her dress and wand, Smooch on her gems, Diamond Glaze on her collar and ribbon, and my clear Jelly Roll glitter pen on her crown.  Whey, it took a long time for her to dry!  The papers are from a gorgeous pack from My Mind's Eye and the rose is from Recollections.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

Doesn't she have a beautiful face?  Just love her!

Here's a couple of views of the inside.

I tried to keep it simple on the inside.

I love yellow and green together.  They just look so springy and the flowered paper gives it a spring showers feel.

I'm entering her in the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - CAS
Crafting for all Seasons - Floral delight
Digistamps 4 Joy - Anything goes
Inklings & Yarns - Always anything goes
Jen's Digi Stamps - Spring
Sisterhood of Crafters - Easter/Spring

Make sure to stop over at the Sassy Studio Designs blog and see the other fabulous creations my designing sisters have in store for you!

Punch It for Elphine House Australia

Easter is one of the biggest holidays for my family.  My girls and I always try and make it to my Mom's house and spend the holiday surrounded by good food and family.  This year the kids colored Easter eggs and what fun we had!  Lots of blue and pink hands but the big fun far out weighted the discoloration.  Allie has on a hat that I wore as a little girl.  I didn't even know Mom had kept it all these years!

And here's the babies in their Easter bests!  Alaina looks just so adorable in her blue and Allie is in the pink and getting into Aunt Gail's famous chocolate chip cheese dip!

Today starts a new challenge over at our Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog!  Our ever talented leader, Lynda, challenged us to "Punch It!", and boy, did I ever!  I used this fabulous Fairy Faye Flying High and just find her so adorable!

Isn't she just beautiful and enchanting?  She's colored with copics and has some Stickles on the dandelion, wings, dress, and the sweet petals in her hair.  The flowers in the right hand corner are handmade and I used a scalloped circle punch.

The butterfly punch is from Martha Stewarty as well as the branches and leaves.  The corner punch n the right bottom is a punch from EK Success.  the pearls are from Hero Arts and the papers are from a gorgeous My Mind's Eye pack called Happy Days.  The stick pins are from BasicGrey and the flowers from Recollections.

Aren't the papers so soft and comforting?  I just love them!

I hope you'll stop by our Elphine House Australia Challenge Blog and see the other fabulolus creations my designing sisters have come up with.  They're really wonderful and all so different!

I hope you enjoy her as much as I did creating her.  I think she's just a perfect little fairy and I'd love to be flying with her!
