TPE Challenge #189

Well happy beautiful Monday morning to you all!
I hope your weekend went just the way you wanted it to?
We had some great family time, and hubby and I had an impromptu day date on Saturday.
Lunch at Chili's, Zero Dark Thirty, then a quick run to Costco.
It's so nice having older kids. ;)
This week we have a fun new challenge for you over at The Pink Elephant:

Oooh, what could it be, you ask?
Here it is:
Look at that lovely photo inspiration!
I've been wanting to change out my bedroom scheme,
but I think these colors would work better in a guest bedroom.
I don't trust myself with any kind of white. lol!
For my card I used an adorable image from Rick St. Dennis called "Texas."
Isn't she quite the diva?
Now I have to confess something, as I was happily coloring up her boa,
I kind of, sort of, really freaked out when I came to this part:
Eeek! Anyone who knows me has seen me carry spiders with my bare hands,
capture crickets, stink bugs, grasshoppers, praying mantis without a problem.
But critters? ACK! 
It's such a great image though, and going to one of my childhood friends who just turned 40.
She's a showgirl by nature, having danced in Polynesian shows in Hawaii since high school. 
I am also entering this beauty into the following challenges:
Jellypark Challenges: Get in Shape (circle, square, rectangle, photo corner triangle)
 Craft Us Crazy: Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday: {below}
 And don't forget our inspiration photo from The Pink Elephant:
Come on by TPE's blog to see what fabulous designs Ella's girls have made!
Have a beautiful Monday everyone, thank you so much for coming by.

Absolutely love the image, your comment about the end of her boa made me laugh out loud, I wouldn't have noticed it either! Love the colour inspiration, it works really well. Thanks for joining us this week at Sketch Saturday, Niki xx
