My First DT Design for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #53: "Sugar and Spice & Everything nice!"

This week’s challenge is sponsored by:


PRIZE: $10 Gift Certificate

PRIZE: 3 digital images of winner's choice

This is my first creation as an "official" DT Member for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge Blog... Woo hoo!  The challenge for this week was to create a card or project that is just for girls.  I immediately thought of lots of flowers, and pearls, and of course, PINK!

The adorable image used on this project is called “Little Lady Skipping,” by Bee Crafty – isn’t she too cute?  This little girl is so me, as a little girl! LOL!  I loved to skip rope... so I created this "house" (it's really a lantern) to depict me --skipping rope outside, on a beautiful sunshiny day, the flowers blooming..... ahhh, such sweet girlhood memories....LOL!  Okay enough of that.  The best thing about this little house is that it is filled with chocolates! YUM!

For the "house," I used the template for a lantern by Norma at From My Craft Room.  You can find the template HERE.

The flowers are hand made - I love making paper flowers! I also used paper by Basic Gray - Sugar Rush. Check out the little "feet" on the bottom - they're wooden pieces that I purchased at the hardware store! This was such a fun project to put together!  What fun creation that's Sugar and Spice & Everything Nice can you come up with?  Please play along at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge! We'd love for you to share your creations!

Thanks for visiting today. Please leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by!  Have a wonderful week & keep on creating!
