 Digital papers or digital coloured image 
this one was tough for me because my printer at home is out of ink and has been for a bit and my work printer only has plack ink... so I was not able to show case the lovely images or paper from our sponsor but I did dig through my stash and found CSI colour stories inpiration papers that I prinkted out a long time ago ... 
and here is my inspiration...

I used the Love you tons stamp by lawn fawn, Baby girl bella blvd paper and digi paper from csi colour stories inspiration

Crafty calendar challenge -atg

Hey everyone, crafty calendar has a new challenge for you this month and it's another easy one. ATG and we are being sponsored by high hope stamps 

Here is my inspiration for you:

Papers are from Bella Blvd "babygirl" and the stamps are from CTMH "lifting spirits"
I paper priced the balloon, popped the clouds, and stamped over the pink strip
Then I thought that a bit of stickles on the clouds would add a bit more but trying to get a pic of the sparkle proved to be difficult if you have any suggestions please let me know
