Make-up Challenge!

I can't tell you how happy I am that it is Thursday night, because you know what that means......tomorrow is Friday! I had a lovely dinner with my Dad tonight. It has been a long time since we've had the chance to go to dinner alone, with no kids, no spouses, just my Dad and me. It was nice chatting and catching up on things...... : )

Anyway, this week's challenge at Noel's blog was to use this make-up ad for inspiration. I took it pretty literally and really went with the color scheme here to create an Easter LO of my niece.

I loved the greens, blues, and hint of pink in the photo. So I used a Martha Stewart Felt bunny, some Doodlebug flowers, and Melissa Frances frames.

I love these new page pebbles by Prima. I layered it over a Martha Stewart daisy sticker. And you can see that I am totally addicted these days to using doilies!

Here is the complete page! I did a vintage children's book page here too. Loved this part of the story.....especially since my page was GREEN!

And little Miss Katie's green jacket was perfect for this LO! She is just the you see her little shoe coming off her foot in the lower right picture? LOL! (***Now you'll have a new picture for your "wallpaper" Dad! : )

Noel Mignon and the rest of the DT gals are hosting a NSD crop on Saturday and Sunday! There will be games, challenges, techniques, and prizes! AND we always have so much fun and silliness in the chat room! Hope you can join us this weekend!
** You'll be glad to know that I got a script for a chest X-ray....will try and go this Saturday.
Wishing you a very HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
