Sugar Bowl Challenge #1 & BIG NEWS!

At first I didn't think I would be able to play along in the Sugar Bowl Challenge....but then I remembered a few months back Gayle sent me some wonderful Sugar Nellie images to play with! Thank you so much Gayle! I so need to purchase some of these stamps so I can continue to play along. I really wanted to play along with this challenge as the prize is 3 sets of Promarkers! I would so love to get my inky hands on those! :)

This image is called Pickin' Apples. Isn't she just darling?! I had lots of fun coloring her with my Copics, and of course I added some stickles to her bow and hat. Highlights were made with my white gel pen. I used glossy accents on the apples, even though it hard to see it in the picture. Papers are a combinations of Basic Grey Euphoria, Creative Memories, and some scraps from my stash. Of course I had to use my corner punches (if you would like to get some, head on over to Wish On A Scrap)! I really do love them! I got some new spacers the other day, so I had to use one on my flower. Flowers, charm, and ribbon from my stash.
And the finished inside! I really like how the inside of this one turned out! Wish me luck on this challenge...I would LOVE to have some more markers to color with!

Now, for my BIG NEWS:
I'm a CHICK!!!


I got a message the other day from Courtney asking if I would like to be a CBCC (Created By Courtney Chick)! I was so excited that she asked me to design for her challenges, and of course I said YES! I am so excited to be a part of the CBCC team! My offical start date is January 13th....so be on the look out for my CBCC creations!
Thanks again Courtney for asking me to be a part of your team!
***Don't forgot the Wish Challenge is going on and you have until January 11th to get your entry in to win a WOJ stamp!***
And finally, I have a few blog candy alerts for you:
