Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Anything Goes!

Happy New Year from me everyone and welcome to a new Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and one of my favorite challenge theme's Anything Goes... I get to do anything I want....oh wait , I usually do...stop laughing Pat !!!  I chose the darling new image, Smitten for my photo album...nope no card for me this week :)


The photo album was the smaller of two I got at Michael's in a bundle but it is perfect for a small photo album for a girl or grandma to put those special photos of special events or people.  I had sooo much fun creating this photo album.  I started by coloring this adorable sweet girl and I did add the polka dots to her shirt and colored her with copic markers.  She was the perfect size to be swooning over my new Eiffel Tower die,which I cut from cardboard,  I wanted to use.  I sponged that and added my crackle stamp to give it the appearance of the ironwork from a distance....work with me here. I airbrushed it with Aqua to match the shadowing around little miss Smitten.  I love the Cathedral window dies and seldom find a good place to actually use them...this was perfect since I wanted to add the roses as they are just synonymous with Paris and Love...right?!?  A love ticket and ribbons tied in the rings and I have a darling photo album I can't wait to give to someone!!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT creations on the Challenge Blog and grab a new Sassy Cheryl's image and play along in the challenge for a chance to win two images of your choice in the random drawing held each week for the challenge entrants who use a Sassy image...easy peasy.  And there are tons of new simply cute images to choose from.

My daughter is done student teaching ( I was working 2 nights at my job and watching her kids 4 days a week while she student taught for a semester)  and graduated last month so hopefully my life is going to return to a more normal state....famous last words..I have really missed having time to really create fun projects like the one above so look forward to more altered projects and not so many cards...it is more who I am.  No more getting up at 5 am ...life is good!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative week.
