Bizarre weather and a little bling...

The weather has been absolutely crazy! It made it up to 60-something degrees on Friday and then drops below freezing early the next morning... WTH? We had thunder storm & tornado warnings... TORNADO WARNINGS IN FREAKIN' DECEMBER... bizarre. And, of course, after it rained, it sleeted, and then finally turned to snow.

On to the fun stuff!! Suzanne sent me a cute little mini lunch box, in which Warheads candies had been packaged, with a challenge attached! I should have taken a picture before I started, [duh moment] but I didn't... it was lime green and yellow with a yellow handle. Yikes. I didn't have any yellow DP, but I did have some lime green from the Mimi collection!
I needed to tie in the yellow handle somehow, so I added a square of yellow Bazzill cardstock as a mat for my image. I also added three small dots of yellow Stickles.

Stamps: Fantasy Flourishes, This Girl
Paper: Mimi SWIC & Mimi cardstock, Bazzil Mono-Yellows
Ink: Chartreuse & Belle Rose Palettes
Other: Marvy Giga Scallop Square Punch, square punches, Diamond, Yellow, and Pink Stickles, misc. ribbon, pink boa feather

I LOVE the little pink boa feather... does that not SCREAM diva? The image needed more bling, so I traced the word with Pink Stickles, and filled in the background flourish with Diamond Stickles.

Hopefully, I'll be able to find time to create a matching mini-book soon!! I wish I had some new little baby girls around me...
I'm sure my nieces will be popping out some more babies soon, so I'll just tuck it away until then :)

Thanks for the challenge, Suzanne!!!

WOW!!! This is just gorgeous. And the colors are perfect. This definately makes me wish I had some little girls to do this stuff for. I don't think my boys would appreciate me making something like this for them. LOL

hey barb,

very very cute, suzanne gave me the same challenge and as soon as my son saw it he had to have it for his little tresures, you can check mine out on my blog, I have no girls so I had to make it boyish, but I definately love how you decorated yours with the diva look...
