I have been stamping and scrapbooking for the past 10 years. It is my favorite hobby and I sure do miss it when life gets way too busy. I have 3 amazing children, and a wonderful, supportive husband.

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!! The kids had a snow day on Monday and this Friday starts their spring break :) This weather doesn't make any sense. I am however looking forward to a wonderful week of with my kiddos.

Today I would like to share another creation with you that I created for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge for April. I wanted to do something completely different :) This is only the second time I have ever made a creation using all grey, black, and white. Its very tricky and very difficult to color this way but I love a fun challenge. This image just seemed to work perfectly for this look.

For the challenge this month we are to following this sketch:

I do LOVE this sketch, it has so many possibilities!!!! Here is my all black, white, and grey creation...Hope you enjoy!!!

I also have to admit, getting a good picture of this card was a bit tricky with lighting. I really like my final result though :)

Isn't this image just SOOOO sweet???  I used the darling image Little Shutterbug!!! I just LOVE this cutie!!! I was so excited when I found a camera charm in my stash along with some fun film Washi Tape I knew I  just had to add to my creation!!!

There are already so many GORGEOUS creations in the gallery....Come check them out HERE and enjoy all the inspiration using My Favorite Things stamps, dies, and embellishments!!!
