I have been CHALLENGE STARVED......SUFFERING FROM WITHDRAWL!!! I went on vacation to NY, and brought back our kids, my daughter and son in law are missionaries in Africa and they are with us with our two darling grand daughters now for the next 5 months, Tovah and Lami, who are 4 and 6. I have been having too much little girl fun and have not posted since our vacation until NOW!! Two precious little girls in the house, and Jenna and Mike and their two also precious girls Layla and Brooklyn moved into a house on the next street over from ours,and one of our other daughters lives 10 minutes away with yet another darling grand daughter, Olivia... so many nights we have FIVE LITTLE GRAND DAUGHTERS, JUST TURNED SIX AND UNDER IN THE HOUSE!!!!! GOOD TIMES....NO,,,,,,GREATEST EVER TIMES!!!! So on to the challenge at hand....
Ahhhhh,,,,thru vacations and plans, I had to say no a couple of times to helping out with this challenge....BUT IT WAS MEANT TO BE.....CUZ THIS WEBSITE WAS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY!! Vintage dresses....my big problem was picking which one to be inspired by!! After many trial runs, I finally designed my card with this dress in mind:
The name of the dress is Roses to the Rescue, and in my case, it was Elements of Style to the rescue.....I tried 3 other cards and none of them worked somehow and then I reverted to my favorite set, and I like it!! :) Hope you do too!!! I hope to get back to the challenges soon.....almost caught up on sleep since vacation....but I may have a few less up loads for a few months here.....time will tell......Happy Saturday everyone!!
