Lonely Without You

Whoo!  My 200th post!  Crazy how quickly I got to this point...sort of.  Just a year and a half ago I was starting this little blog of mine, diving head long into an adventure I had dreamed of doing for so long.  It hasn't all been smooth, and it hasn't progressed as quickly as I wanted, but I love coming here to share my work and connect with you!

Thank you to all of my followers for being here with me, enjoying my posts and leaving me your sweet comments.  If your not a follower yet and you'd like to be (which would mean the world to me!!!) there are a few options for you.  You can follow me on Facebook where I have my blog networked so everything posts there and you can stay connected easily.  There is also BlogLovin.  I personally love BlogLovin.  It keeps all of the posts from the blogs that I follow in a neat list and emails me each day with any new blog posts.  So handy!  And of course, there is Google Friend Connect where your sweet little pic gets added on the right side over there :)

I'd love to have you here!  And your friends, so spread the love!! <3

So this post is for Digi Makeover's new challenge this week!  We are challenging you to use pastel colors on your creations!  I love pastel colors.  Especially this time of year when spring is just around the corner and you can smell it in the air!  We've had some pretty cold temps this past week which hasn't been very nice, but when the sun shines the spring fever kicks in :)
I forgot that I had this sweet paper in my stash.  It's actually 2 sided and has cute little Easter chicks on the other side...so I guess it's Easter paper...but the soft colors remind me of spring.  I used this cutie from Paper Makeup-Kirsten.  She reminded me of the days when I would sit down by our pond and play with all the weeds and dandelions, just enjoying the sun and breeze.

I colored her in with my colored pencils and added glitter to her wings.  I double layered some ribbons, but did sort of a wave affect with the top pink one.  It's pretty simple.  I just spaced out some double sided tape across the top of the white ribbon, then bubbled up the pink in between so it was waved.  I love how it looks!
The sentiment is printed and layered onto some blue card stock.  The finishing touch was the light purple pearls in the bottom two corners.

I hope you will join us this week!  Just remember to use a digi!  Be sure to check out the rest of the makeup artists fabulous creations!!
