Papertake Weekly - Three....Two....One!!!

Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday! Just a little more than two weeks, and my Grandson JJ will be here to visit! Those of you that have known me for a while know exactly how excited I get about this visit every year. He's our first Grandson and he and my daughter (his mom) lived with us for the first four and a half years of his life. So when they moved away, it was pretty hard. So we bring him out every summer to get a little taste of home again. This year, the visit will be way too short for me, but we'll make the most out of every minute. So you think our house would be noisy now with all of us here, well add one more 8 year old boy on top of the two we've already got, and I start being afraid that OSHA will visit and fine me for unsafe noise levels. LMBO!  So anyway, it's time for a new challenge at Papertake Weekly, and this week Dawny is asking us to use three of one thing, two of something else, and one thing of yet another. We're being sponsored by Whiff of Joy!  Here's my take on the challenge this week.

I used #265 Summer Flower Tilda from the Summer Memories Collection. I don't see her in stock right now in the regular size at Magnolia-licious, but Diana does have her in the mini size! She's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers. The frame she's in was cut with the Cameo. The DP is Nitwit Collections matted with Bazzill Cardstock. I added a couple layers of lace along with a bow made with some May Arts silk ribbon. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts with some leaves from a Martha Steward punch. The pearls were done using a Viva Decor Pearl pen.

Please be sure to pop over to Papertake Weekly to see what my teamies came up with for you this week, then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play long with us. Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon!  Hugs!!
