Beautiful Day!

Since it's February, I can spill the beans now and do a h-ap, h-a-pp, h-a-p-p-y dance! I wasn't going to do this until after I retired from my "day" job, but I couldn't resist when I saw Elisabeth Bell's Digi Bells Design Team had a challenge for a 3-month guest design team spot... well I won one of three spots - YIPPEEEE!!! I am just thrilled!
Okay for this creation, who knew... all you have to do is go to the pantry to find papercrafting supplies?!? :0 There on the shelf was a brand new package of cheesecloth and boy-O-boy did I have fun with it (never knew what I was missing, gosh I was missing a LOT). I believe Elisabeth snuck into the house one day and saw me at work - cuz, this image is TOTALLY ME! She nailed it purrrfectly! You can find Creative Genius Michele here at Elisabeth Bell Designs. I followed the sketch over at Papertake Weekly Challenge, fashioned a cheesecloth flower, rolled roses from paper and used my new Spellbinder's Impressabilities and Nestie label 3, along with my Tim Holtz burlap distress ink. The little roses and heartpins are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a BEAUTIFUL day!
RECIPE: Elisabeth Bell-image; Papertake Weekly Challenge-sketch; Tim Holtz-distress ink (burlap); Prima DP-madeline collection; Wild Orchid Crafts-tiny roses, heart stickpins; lace, pearls, findings-LCS; copics.
