PRINCESS - Crown BBTB challenge




WOW - I just LOVE the BBTB challenges. Every week I brain storm about these projects.......sometimes I just blank out not knowing what in the world I am going to come up with...........then at any given moment....out of no where I will get a vision of exacly what I will do :o) All I can say is that they always keep me on my toes. I had the nerve to ask my sis REGINA the other day how in the world she picks the challenges and being the cutesy person she is she answered.............

"I line up all the cartridges that i own and then I close my eyes and spin around and throw a small ink pad at all of them........which ever falls is the winner..........." OK - I laughed for like 15 minutes just picturing my sis doing this in her scrap space. She is a clown and one of the best people I know. I have the pleasure of chit chatting with her about one day a week over the phone (usually on my way home from work) for about 30 minutes or so and every single day via EMAIL. I love her to pieces - she is so loving and cheerful. Love ya sis.

OK - enough rambling - hehehehehehe

Here is my project. Make sure to check out the other awesome CROWN designs. Those girls just ROCK!!!! Oh yeah - my DSIL IVY is the guest designer over at BBTB this month - her work is totally AWESOME!!!!!!! Love ya DSIL!!!! Had a blast this weekend scrapping till almost sunrise - I did hear the birds start to chrip - LOL
