DT CARD Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #96

Good morning everyone, time for another super challenge over at SCSC, but first however I want to apologise to everyone who took part last week, and to my DT buddies.  I've been away camping, only getting home yesterday and though I took my dongle and could get online - I could not access ANY blogs, including my own which was a nightmare as some posts were scheduled but incomplete as I had every intention of finishing them off whilst away.   I feel real bad cos obviously I couldn't leave any comments.   Now I'm home and the connections all seem to be working perfectly so I'm looking forward to doing some hopping and seeing all your fabulous makes.


This weeks challenge is set by my wonderful teamie Vicky and she's come up with a super theme of...........

"What Are Little Girls Made Of?"

We want to see girlie projects so dig out all your girly images, pretty flowers, gems and glitter - the more the better

I must admit I deviated from the theme slightly when I saw this image from Mo - just reminded me of ME when I was little, I was a right tomboy, usually had a ball in my hand and certainly didn't do girly dresses, bright pink or flowers.  In fact, I think I hated all things girly rofl.  So hence the lack of girly embellies - but some girls just aren't made of them lol.!

The paper I used goes perfectly with this image I think and it's GORGEOUS.  It's from the Pulse Collection by Prima Marketing and I bought it from the Secret Crafter store, where the copics and promarkers I used for colouring are also available.

The cardstock and card candy is from my stash.

I'm off now to make a dent in the laundry accumulated whilst we were away and put all the camping gear away in the loft.  I am NOT impressed that the garden office Pete has promised to build me in the spring for my crafting is now going to be smaller - to make room for storage for all our camp stuff!!!  It's off in the loft today so I can't see why it can't stay there!! LOL - something else about little girls now springs to mind "I'll scream and scream and scream until I'm sick!!"  Can't remember now which TV show thats from but I remember copying it when I couldn't have something rofl - hmmm, wonder if that would work on Pete hahahahaa.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and thanks for looking.
