Smiley from

It's a beautiful Limelight Papercrafts Thursday!!!!!! A fun sketch and product challenge with, of course, a chance to win a prize!!!! Don't forget to check out the awesome sales Mandy has at Limelight too!!!!

Here's the sketch..........and it's just right for the product focus that our FABulous Mandy has chosen..........Patterned Paper!!!! Yep!!!! Ohhh all the lovely, fantastic, amazing, gorgeous designer paper that none of us can EVER get enough of!!!! (Disregard that sentence ending in a's 3 a.m...........I have no brain! LOL). So pull out your paper..........that's can do it!!! CHOP IT UP!!!! Smiley from Mwahahahaha!!!!! I think I may be the only crazy stamper who actually DELIGHTS in cutting up a fresh, new sheet of dp!!!! In fact, 2 of my sisters-in-law love coming to dig thru my containers of dp scraps!!! LOL Yes...........I have issues!!!!

  • Stamps: Gratitude = Joy
  • Paper: Neenah Solar White, Basic Grey Porcelain
  • Ink: SU Rose Romance, Wild Wasabi
  • Embellies: Ribbon, Pearls, Crystal Effects

I used some of my favorite Basic Grey designer paper.....Porcelain. Oh do I love Basic Grey...and Mandy has sooo much to choose from!!! And yes, I have them all!!! LOL I used 3 different designs out of that pack here..........they all harmonize so beautifully that it's easy to mix and match when creating!!! I used one of my new Unity Stamp kits, Gratitude = Joy.......the simplicity itself yet elegance of this kit is just wonderful!! And some fun two-toned Ruffle Ribbon and Rose Pearls of course!!! Gotta have embellies!! I put Crystal Effects on the images for a little extra POP!!! The photo corners may be a bit blended in, but I used the Gina K. Fancy Corner Punch.
