Happy Holidays

Easter holidays for us this year are home based.  Both boys are heading into exams this next term, so are balancing a bit of study (some days better than others) with visiting relatives and going to the gym.  So this is a quick post before we head out - think I might swim again today as my little legs haven't recovered from the gym from yesterday!

So, my card today, it uses that lovely Stamping Bella image Uptown Girls from my even lovelier friend Laurie! The girls dresses have been paper pieced.

The paper in Nitwits by LOTV - Petal Fresh and the scene is finished off with stars, pearls, Stickles and Glossy Accents.


Challenges;
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 252
Forever Friends - Monthly - Paper Piece
Pan Pastel - Anything Goes
Kraft Journal - Anything Goes + Kraft
