You are so Beautiful to Me & a bite of Candy!

Hello, Friends! Today is a lovely Saturday, and I've completed my latest project for The Digi Bells, where I'm so thrilled to be a Guest Design Team member! I love this image by Elisabeth Bell "Click". As I was working this morning my youngest son (20yo), Collin, came up to see what I was working on and promptly said "Is that you?". Amazing to me how Elisabeth captures us ALL in her art! I had everything all worked out, except the sentiment... well... listening to my favorite music (60s/70s/80s) a bit of Joe Cocker came on with... "You are so Beautiful to me" - PERFECT! I used some Prima "Jack n' Jill" DP, embossed with Spellbinders impressibilities, cut and embossed with some nestabilites, embossed with cuttlebug folders and since The Digi Bells blog hop challenge to win "On Cupid's Cloud" is not only to leave a comment on all of the DT blogs, but also to create with any Elisabeth Bell image and enter it into the challenge on the blog with the theme of "lots of lace" - I followed that theme. Used some Hero Arts lace, some new paper roses I found at PaperMart online, colored and glittered, had to use some pearl stickpins and a metal butterfly that I've had for ages - oh, ya, and used my fiskers lacy edge punch.

I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and had a great day!

 And even decorated the inside!
 Just a wee closeup of those lovely paper flowers

Now don't forget, I have a bite of EB candy to giveaway, but you have to play here for a chance to win!
love,
Wendy
