A quick post today as I am off to work, as you are reading this.

Isn't it ironic, for me anyways, 
that I recently did a huge overhaul in
my craft room, and donated so many
of my old craft suplies?
One being DCWV papers.
But oh well.
I used Jillibean Soup papers.
Loving that fox!!
That is it for me for now.
Told you it would be a short post!
Until next time, friends.

Happy Day to you all....
Thanks for stopping by.

A new challenge is starting over on
the Hiding In My Craft Room blog today.

HIMCR #266 - Super Scraps Saturday!

And the sponsor is:

The giveaway is 3 products from mhk designs!

We, as the design team, were given
the opportunity to choose our
images for this challenge.
I finally decided to choose 
this set, called Beautiful Bottles.
It is a beautiful set..
and I have always been intrigued with 
perfume bottles, especially the 
vintage ones.
The styles, the colors.
I am not one for perfume, 
but I do like how they are presented
in their glass bottles.

Here is what I created:

I used my Prismacolored pencils...
I really wanted to keep the vintage look, 
and as I really look at it now, 
I should have used different papers
for the background..
The papers are from Glitz Designs...
My picture is not the greatest...ugh..
I used a bit of Distress Paint, white picket fence, 
on the background to mute the colors a bit.

There you have it, folks.
Be sure to link up your projects
for a chance to win some 
beautiful images...they are
Challenge ends next Saturday
