The Free 4 All challenge is all about girls and what we do to have fun. This digi (unknown due to losing it when lightening struck my phone line going to computer) reminds me of my grand-daughter Bella. My son got married 3 yrs ago and he married a sweet gal with 3 children, Bella being the youngest. The kids have been such a blessing. Bella is the youngest and she is very grownup for a 10 year old. She loves to watch chick flicks so watching movies with Bella is a real treat for me. She likes to go to the family room downstairs, that she calls her apartment, to watch her movies so we sprawl out on the sofas and chill. The digi I used reminds me a lot of Bella when she was younger.
The mix challenge today is to use a grid. Bella, on my card, is sitting at a table with her cupcake and I drew in some squares (not true squares, but you get the picture) on the table cloth. I used gesso over my paper and then sprayed on dilusions spray mist. In the process of this, I found a new product to use on my card. I sprayed the card over the trash can. The ink was running so I tapped it off in the garbage can forgetting I had brushed my dog yesterday and the dog hair was in the trash can. The hair would not come off while it was wet so I dried it and then was able to remove the hair. I don't know if you can see it, but in the upper left hand corner there is a patch that looks like it has crackle paint on it. Well that is the product of my dog hair. Gosh, I can't believe I am sharing this, but it was just too funny to keep to myself besides it says at the top of my screen that people love cards with description and supplies-don't skimp. Okay, by now you are thinking I am a total goof ball. I have to admit you have that right, but I have a good time being a goof ball. :)
I seem to want to add sequins to every thing I make these days. Bella loves sequins and bling so I just had to use them on this card that is all about her. (and the dog) LOL

I LOVE THESE COLORS TOGETHER AND I LOVE YOUR CARD!! You do not sound like a goof ball - you just sound like a totally fun person to be with!!! This will generate a lot of giggles in the gallery I love your description of the "grid", the gal who looks like Bella (she REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE BELLA) and the story about you and her in 'her apartment' watching chick flicks. This is a card just full of fun (and it shows - but NOT the dog hair!)
BTW, I do not see the 'crackle paint' effect you are talking about - just looks COOL!

Oh....new technique time! Yes, the Bella-Yorkie experiment. This image is adorable, and your story is Jamma Town worthy. Very sweet. And a goofball you are, the most lovable kind!
