Soak it Up!

Oh, my... how I love Gillian! I had forgotten about Prairie Fairy for a little bit, but snapped out of my fog and visited their store a couple of days ago and picked up three new Gilly's - makes me smile really *BIG*! I believe Gilly is "California Dreamin'" while having a nice hot soak! Since it is beautiful weather here, a bit chilly at night, but in the 60s during the day, bright and SUNNY! I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday
and had a blast with it! Tons of layers, edge inking (distressing), embossing, die cutting, flower making and using a fave embellie pink irridescent string of pearls - they are so shiny and bright, reminded me of the bubbles from the bath! I used My Mind's Eye "a happy heart" designer papers and even used the negative cut from the lacey spellbinder for the inside. Today, I wish I were Gilly!

Wishing you a bubblebath kinda week!

RECIPE:Prairie Fairy-image; Sketch Saturday-sketch; spellbinders-lacey circles, circles; sizzix swirl dies; My Mind's Eye-DP "a happy heart"; ribbon, pearls, string pearls, lace-LCS; EK success-edge punch; cuttlebug-swiss dot embossing folder; VersaMagic-chalk ink "pink petunia"; copics
