"Bright & Beautiful" at Lili's Little Fairies . . .

Please scroll down for this week's
Mo's DP2 Challenge Card . . .

Happy Thursday once again! I have a new project for this week's Lili's Little Fairies Challenge where our theme is . . .

"All Things Bright & Beautiful"

Well . . . this seems pretty bright to me . . . and, if I do say so myself, it's sort of beautiful too! hehe! Well, for sure the occasion will be beautiful!! You see . . .  as you read this, I'll be about 3000 miles from my home in Richmond, VA! I'll be in Phoenix, AZ enjoying some warmer weather, delicious Mexican food, and, of course, my family!! AND, if that's not fabulous enough, I'll be attending my eldest son's wedding!! Hence, the reason for this week's project!
OK . . . so here's the deal . . . Andy and Heather are getting married on Saturday! It's the second marriage for each of them. And I just thought this was the perfect sentiment for them as they take their relationship to the next level!! Plus, Heather's fave color is blue!! And, my son is wearing jeans to the wedding . . . although probably not overalls! LOL! This adorable image is called "Close Your Eyes " and is available HERE at Lili of the Valley. Aren't these two just so precious?! Here's a bit of a side view . . .
My "recipe" . . .
Whisper White Cardstock: Stampin' Up
DP's: "Patchwork" by Bearly Mine digis
Sentiment: LOTV
Ribbon & pearls: My stash
Floral Ovals die: Nestabilities/Spellbinders
Flowers & metal filigree corners: Wild Orchid Crafts
Copics & various colored pencils
5.5 x 5.5 inch frame: Local craft store

And, here's a bit of an angled view . . .
Now . . .  don't forget to pop on over to Lili's Little Fairies Challenge Blog HERE so you can check out the gorgeous creations by my DT "fairy" sisters! Then, pull out your craft supplies and at least ONE Lili of the Valley stamped image and join us for this week's fun challenge. One lucky winner (selected at random, of course) will win a fabulous prize donated by Mary & Andrea at the Ribbon Girl . . .
And . . . there ya have it! Thanks so much for stopping by . . . and, for your very, very sweet comments!! Hugs . . . until next time!
