CLP #25 DT

Hello friends! Today is May 1st and time for the Crafting Life's Pieces monthly sketch challenge. If you've read my ramblings for a while you'll know I am a huge fan of Chelsea's sketches, and I'm very pleased to be on the inaugural Crafting Life's Pieces Design Team. Whoo hoo!

I've used one of Chelsea's Gurlee Girl stamps, called "Kisses Girl". Isn't she adorable?
I've used Basic Grey's Urban Prairie "Monarch" paper as embellishments on the front and inside - the butterflies are pretty cool! I painted them with Pearl Glimmer Mist - a very subtle effect that doesn't show up well here. That's what our imagination is for, right? *wink*


Here is Chelsea's wonderful sketch - please pop on over to the CLP Challenge Blog to see the other team member samples and play along!

    This paper pack is almost too fabulous to cut into, isn't it!?!? I HAD to have it and it just sits there, I pet it here and there but can't bring myself to use it often. Well, I LOVE your project, your colouring is fabulous, you bring that gurlee right off the page and lovin' the choice of embellies too!! I can't wait to see what else you create with Chelseas fabulous sketches :)
    Take Care,
    Stephanne
