Get Picky

Happy Monday fellow bloggers! 
I have been away for a few days at a wonderful stamp show. Well, away is really not the
right word, it is right down the road from me, like 3 minutes, but I spend all
weekend there. so that is why I haven't updated my blog since last week!
I got some of the COOLEST stamps there - can't wait to use them. 

Today I have a LO for the Get Picky challenge. Loved the sketch this week!! 
Once again I am using cute photos of my little neighbor - I am taking a break from my own kiddos!
I did something I almost never do - I started with PLAIN WHITE CARDSTOCK. 
I have been doing a lot of stamp resist backgrounds lately and I bought this great 
stamp last week at the other stamp show I went to and I just HAD to use it!! So a
little white was in order. I stamped, embossed and them sprayed with Memories Mist.
The die cut is from my Ornamental Iron Cricut cart.
I have also used Fiskars, Kaiser Kraft, Offray, Ranger, Maya Road and a few things from my stash.
Here is the wonderful sketch I used
Yummy, right??? If you have not played along with Get Picky - you should go check it out!
