I'm so excited!

Good morning blogworld

Well I am really, really, really excited!  I've only gone and been asked to Guest DT over at Papertake Weekly for a couple of months!  I'd put my name in the hat a couple of times and not been lucky - this time I was.  One happy bunny here then!

So without further ado, or waffle!, here's the details.  The challenge this week is either a lovely sketch (#87) or a free for all and, as always, there is a fab prize on offer.

This is the sketch:

Now anyone who knows me and my waffle knows I love a good sketch to follow and that's just what this - so I followed it and this is what I came up with:

The Arty Farty:
 I used:

Digi image:
All Dressed Up - Three Little Party Girls (one image from a set of three)
coloured with my Copics and Graph'Its


My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found : Blush
Glitz - Pretty in Pink

Anything else?
Viva Pearl Pen
paper string from stash
My Crafty Heart - flower (not that easy to see in the pics - it's in her hair!)

I was so excited to be picked and am really looking forward to GDT'ing among such talented people for the next few weeks - thanks again for asking me!

See you soon,


A challenge, or two:

Totally Gorjuss: Challenge 224 - Strings the thing

In The Pink: Challenge #38 - Pink plus one - my plus one is grey.
