be true...

Happy Monday!

What a fabbie birthday weekend....thanks for all the birthday wishes!!!

FYI: Starting tomorrow I'll be on a bloggie break....I'll have scheduled posts and will be back sometime next week...please be sure to leave me some bloggie love...I'll be doing random drawings on my scheduled posts when I'm back:)

Okay, up first is the EtsyInspired Challenge...I was inspired by Cathy Walters' Be True Pendant:

Here's how I was inspired by it.....I finally inked up that fab Hero Arts butterfly image (which has been been copic'd, fussy cut and on a glue dot)...heat embossed it and everything:)

I love how it pops off of the fun October Afternoon paper...added some Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type and some Kaiser bling...

If you haven't checked it out yet....EtsyInspired Challenges is up to 100 and they are having a huge celebration...

No surprise that I'm horribly behind on my google reader prepping for my bloggie break and celebrating my birthday:) I hope to catch up soon...
