Raising Teenagers

    I'm really excited to tell you that I'm a GDT at Oozak for this challenge and our theme is Anything Goes/Funny -- either a funny image or funny sentiment.  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and you can't go wrong with fantastic humor over there.  I used an image called "STB teenages and flowers" and the sentiment couldn't be more true!   Having raised my own teenagers, I'm sending this to my daughter who is currently raising her own teens, bless her little heart.  :-D


     Stella and the flowers are colored with Shin Han Touch Twin markers (available at Oozak!) and a bit of sparkle gel ink.  The image is already framed and I just matted it with black CS.  the border punch is layered onto purple CS and attached to the bottom of the image.

     The patterned dp is from DCWV's "Violet Leaf" stack, one of my latest favorites.  There's also a faint print in the purple dp.  I punched the corners, added the ribbon and used a second ribbon to tie the bow.  That's a hand punched flower with a gem added which I layered onto the bow.  The final touch was the three purple pearls in the top corner.

     Challenges:
Addicted to Stamps -- Lots of layers
Card Mania -- Summer blooms
Digi Sketch -- Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time -- Anything goes
One Stop Craft -- Add flowers and ribbon
Paper Playtime -- Use patterned dp
Pile It On -- Anything goes
Robyn's Fetish -- Friendship w/ a sentiment
Speedy & Friends -- Tie it up (bow)
Tammy's Scrappin' Corner -- Use a digi
Top Tip Tuesday -- Spooled items (ribbons)

     I'll have one more post this morning since this is the New Release day for August over at Doodle Pantry.  Be sure to check back in an hour or so to see all of Laurie's newest goodies!  Also, come play along at Oozak.  You have two weeks to get something done and enter it.  Won't you share your fun/funny/humorous projects with us?  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
