By The Cute and Girly DT makes

It's the start of a new challenge over at By The Cute and Girly. 
This month it's Ayelet's turn to host the challenge and she has chose the theme "Celebrations", so really you could do somehting for any occasion :)
We have 4 sponsors this month which means 4 prizes to win! And one of our sponsors this month Stitchy Stamps gave us some of her digital images to play with.

So here's what I made for this month's challenge.

I used Stitchy Stamps Lil Behind image for this one, isn't she a sweetie? I love how her bum is sticking out lol. I coloured her with Promarkers and matted her on a scalloped rectangle which I just cut freehand as I don't have a die that shape. The spotty paper is Papermania and the other is Kaisercraft as is the scalloped mat which is the reverse side of my base paper. All the flowers and the pin are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace is from my local haberdashery ( love that place lol).

And here's a close up of this cheeky little one :)

I'm having a problem with the Promarkers bleeding a lot when I use digital images. I have been using the same paper that I used with my Copics and it never bled with the if anyone has any suggestions what to use with the Promarkers, please let me know as I use a lot of digi's so need to find paper that works well with the markers.

 I used a Sugar Nellie image for this one which I got in a rak a few months back.
I'm not sure about the papers on this one as they are more that I got from Debs (thanks again hun).
The blue cardstock is a bit shimmery but you can't really see that here.
The large flower was one that was lurking in my stash and the other is a Prima, spacer and ribbon are from my stash.

 I have had a template for making these for forever but have never made them before, so wasn't sure how they would turn out, but I think they are quite cute and I might just make some more sometime :)
The paper I used is actualy lilac but it looks blue here, hence why I used purple pearls. Again I'm not sure who makes the paper and the trim was at the bottom of my ribbon box so no idea where that came from. For some reason it looks as though the trim is pink in places but it is cream irl.....weird lol.
This is actualy the girly version of these booties but I think you could get away with using them for a boy too. The boy version has laces instead of the strap, so I really should of made those since I made a blue baby card lol, but never mind, I can make those another day :)

Well that's what I did, now it's your turn! You can make anything you like as long as it fits the theme and you can enter as much times as you want throughout the month as long as every entry is a different craft. ie 1 card, 1 layout, 1 jewelry item, 1 knitted item, 1 altered item etc etc.
Think of how many times you could enter and all those chances you could have to win one of the prizes! :)
So what you waiting for? Get yourself over to the challenge blog and check out what the rest of the girls have done. There is so much variety again this month, that there is no way you will leave there without being inspired :)

Thanks for stopping by today
