Guest Designer @ The Paper Mixing Bowl + a SNEAK!

**There are GIVEAWAYS posted in my left side bar- be sure to check them out before you leave!**

Good morning! I hope you're all having a good weekend- it's Saturday morning here, so my weekend has just begun and it's beautiful out today! Can't wait to get out in it! :)

A little while back I got an invite email from Sarah, owner of The Paper Mixing Bowl, asking if my sister Kelly and I would be interested in guest designing at her challenge site. It's a newer challenge blog that incorporates the fun idea of a recipe card to get your creativity going! So we of course accepted, and were subsequently sent the July Recipe Card, "Strawberry Shortcake":

Delicious, yes?? The requirements are to use the sketch, at least 2 of the utensils, and at least 1 of the journaling requirements. Here is what I came up with:

"Sun Shine"

And (of course!) a little closer look:




**My hidden journaling**

Added a bit of glitter and pink glimmer mist to my texture paste this time :)- gotta get girly sometimes!! ;)

Fun fun fun!! Be sure to check their site out for sure! For complete directions on how to follow along, visit their Etiquette section--->HERE. I hope you get the chance to play along :)...

Will be back tomorrow with some Webster's romantic goodness I cooked up last night! Here's a little sneak preview:

I know my blog has been pretty loaded this week, but thank-you for taking the time to stop by every day, it's so appreciated!!

See you then!
