Sassy Graduation for Sassy Studio Designs Progressive Challenge

After people decided to share the free images that Lindsay from Sassy Studio Designs was providing over at our Paper Craft Planet Group on Pinterest and everywhere else the social media goes these days,  she made a decision as an artist to discontinue sharing them.  It was really sad because those who used it responsibly had a blast with them and we had some great challenges and saw some fabulous work.  After some serious consideration, we are excited to announce that our Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet group is going to host a Progressive Challenge!  We're really excited about it and hope you'll pop on over and request the image and play along! You can find all the details at the group here.  Just join our group, request the image and come play along!  

The theme for this first challenge is "You Did It, Happy Graduation!" and our first image is Sassy Graduation.  Love her and here's my take on her:

She's so much fun!  She's colored with copics and a couple of Spectrum Noir Markers.  I added stickles on her gown and hat and some Diamond Glaze on the yoke of her gown.  The pearls are from Hero Arts and the top and bottom flowers are from Recollections and the middle one is handmade.  The papers are from Authentique and the Kraft card stock is from Stampin Up and the yellow is from Co'redination.  I used my Martha Stewart punch for the branches.

Doesn't she have the prettiest face?  All full of hope and dreams!

Here's a couple of side views so you can see the dimensions of the flowers.

I plan on entering her in the following challenges:

Clear It Out - Anything goes, must use stash items 2 or more designers papers
Deep Ocean Challenge - Let's Sparkle
Love to Scrap - Anything goes
Cards In Envy - Sketch

See that middle flower?  I'm going to be doing a tutorial over at our PCP Group on how to make them!  So make sure to stop on over, join the group if you don't already belong, and have some great fun!

Sunshine Set Girl with Garden Flowers from Elphine House Australia

Just want to take a minute and wish everyone a very Happy Mother's Day! I've been so blessed to have a wonderful mother who I've learned so much from.  She truly shows me what unconditional love is every day.  I love you Mom!  And to my beautiful, wonderful daughters who have turned into such amazing mothers themselves, I love you all and am so blessed and honored to have you call me mommy.

 I've been up to so much that my mojo took a turn and deided to go on a vacation!  But it's coming back!  I wanted to share my Elphine House Design Team project of Flower Power with you and remind you that you still have a day or two to come over and play along with our challenge.  

This is my cutie pie that I used.  She's brand new and on her way into the Elphine House Australia store.  She's from the Sunshine Set and right now I'm calling her the girl with Garden Flowers.  She's colored with copics and has stickles added kind of all over the flowers and her scarf and headband.  I used some of my favorite paper from Prima and the silk flowrs are from Offray, the pearls from Recollections, the side edge is from Tim Holtz and the flowers are homemade.

Isn't she just adorable?

I added some distressed inks around the edge to give it a more soft look.

Make sure to come on over to our Design Team Blog and join in our challenge.  Wouldn't you love a chance to win a gorgeous stamp?  I know I'd be all over it!
