Exciting News+ Challenge

I am very EXCITED to announce that I have been selected as part of the design team for
Cooking It Up With Katie.  So let's kick these off today with my debut and a fun challenge!  For today's challenge we got to work with wonderfully adorable images from Teddy Bo and Co., our awesome sponsor this week and if offering 5 digis to our winner! 

Our challenge this week is:
Make is Spring, Add some Yellow, Finish with a few Flowers! 

You know sometimes you make a card or project you fall in love with?  Well this is one for me, I just LOVE the way this one came together.  I worked with the adorable image called Bunny Bo Bea (you can find is on page 11/14 in store).  I colored with my Copics of course and then cute the image out.  The papers are from my stash, but I remember I got them at Archiver's a long time ago.  I grabbed my Nesties to create the fancy scalloped circle (there wee brand new never opened until this past week). 

Now for fun part, I made those little flowers- YEAH ME!  This is a totally new technique for me and I LOVE how they turned out and will be using more in the future!  I used this tutorial on SplitCoastStampers.  Now are you ready to join the challenge and see what rest of team has created, head on over to
Cooking It Up With Katie to join the fun!
