hello chloe...

Hey There!

Patting myself on the back for finally mounting and inking up Sparkle Creations Scooter Chloe!

{{hey sparks!!}}

This was probably one of my most labor intensive paper piecing projects that I've done in a while...AND I had my girl do the purple pieces...that was BEFORE I evidently ruined her day...sigh, the joys of having a 15 year old daughter...

I KNEW that Chloe would be perfect-o with Cosmo Cricket's Joy Ride...whaddya think? Chloe is on mega glue dots...do you see the cutie pie exhaust cloud...Cracks me up! I used an EAD Sentiment Vinyl Rub On in brown...they rock...nice and opaque. Chloe's skin has been copic'd...you just can't seem to tell in the pic.

I did a ton of stitching on this one....

I totally lucked out as the new Sparkle Creations Challenge is favorite embellie:

What's not to love about felt flowers {& pearls}....

I was inspired by Card Patterns #75:

Here's a little background on me & Sparks...we're practically neighbors...super sweet gal...she came to one of my holiday gift shows in Seattle last year...tolerated my friends...LOL.

I couldn't be more thrilled for Sparks and her fabbie Design Team....

Thanks for stoppin' by!!!
