Sad but Ecstatic.........

I am a typical gemini! Ha
I am sad because I step down from my design team position on 
Once Upon A Sketch at the end of the month!
I am super ecstatic as 3 of my girls on my design team over at 
have made the design team at 
(follow the link to read about it)

I am so proud of you!

and wait it doesnt stop there

I am proud to announce I
join the design over at 
I love this challenge blog 
and the freedom of creativity one has with 
just one little word!

ok back to Once Upon A Sketch and my last design team layout after
18months on the team!!
The challenge for June is birthdays

and here is my take on the challenge and sketch!

dont I look goofy ???LOL LOL
anyway supplies used

Pattern paper Basic Grey Wassail
Butterflies are fussy cut from Basic Grey pattern paper ambrosia
I added my white and cream mists and used various masks (thank you Cathy)
the dress form is from Imaginarium designs
the background stamp is Glitz Designs
an orange doily from my stash
and the embellishments the orange crochet star flower and the dusty pink thread spiral are hand made by me I sell similar in my new Etsy Shop
