Humble Pie, Frosted Designs, and Royalty...

Good Afternoon!
This post is serving three different ones for today. I was totally MIA yesterday, as it was a very hectic day at school. The "Big Wigs" were visiting us all day, observing and interviewing teachers and students. This was a very stressful day and week leading up to "the visit". Now we await the review results....
When school was over, we drove an hour away to Ashlea's school. She was representing her fourth grade class in Homecoming Court. At her school, one representative from 4-7 grade is crowned Princess and the Queen is chose from the eighth grade representatives. It is my great pleasure to announce the 2010 Fourth Grade Homecoming Princess....Miss Ashlea Little, my gorgeous niece! I'm so proud of her!

This first card is my weekly DT card at Humble Pie. This week we are using at least 5 flowers on our cards. I had this beautiful My Mind's Eye paper left on my table from the weekend. I wanted to use the scraps and this is what came out. I used the lovely Flower Maggie, colored her with my CTMH markers and added some pretty little posies. You know these delicious bakers have links on the side bar. Be sure to visit their in their kitchen to see what they are cooking up. I can't wait to see your flower projects.

This last one is my weekly project for Frosted Designs. This week we asking you to use embossing on your project. You can dry emboss or pull out the trusty heat gun. I chose to do both. I used the dvine cuttlebug folder on the inner white cardstock circle. I highlighted it with ink and glimmer mist. Then I used the second generation technique to stamp the lips, this gave them a lighter color than the liner. I used clear embossing over them to give a "glossy" effect. You know I've got the fabby Frosted Designers linked up in my side bar. They've got inspiration galore for you today. Be sure to give them some love. I know I'll find inspiration from your creations too!

Blessings,
