High Hopes challenge #35

Good early Sunday morning to you all!!! I am up early today because today is the day we are going to the Brewers game!! Matthew won tickets through a contest, & we have to be at the stadium by noon to pick them up. We are all so excited!!!!

Today's challenge on the High Hopes blog is Lotsa Circles!!! You can really go crazy with this .....punches......dies.....brads....eyelets....designer paper.....embossing...anything with circles on it!!

I chose to use this adorable bee from the last release. Unfortunately, she's not on the website yet. I know one of the other Divas asked about it a few days ago, & for some reason it just hasn't been added yet. If you'd like to order her, I would give Tina or Bethany a call at High Hopes!! I will keep an eye out, & if she does get added sometime soon, I will update this post!!

Anyway, I colored her with my Prismas & gamsol. I had tried watercoloring her.....but it didn't go so well. So, I reached for my trusty Prismas & tried again. I added lots of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to her wings.....used some Nesties for the circles....& added white dots with acrylic paint, because EVERY ONE of my gel pens has died!! Sheesh!! The papers are SU's Basic Black, Rose Red, & K&Co Wild Raspberry. I added some polka dot ribbon & some flower/leaf combos, & some bling (which I colored pink with my Copics) in the opposite corners. Do you think I have enough circles???

Hopefully you can see her blingy wings in this picture....

Here's a closeup of the "flower". It's kind of like Lesa's flower.....but I used the Cuttlebug scalloped circle dies instead.....3 different sizes....& mushed them a bit...added a brad & called it a flower :)

Be sure to check out the other fabulous circle-y creations on the High Hopes blog!!

Well I hope you all have a splendid Sunday!! If you're watching the Brewers game on for us on the 1st base line. Matthew gets to have his name announced over the PA at the end of the game, then lead the base run after. I think this will be just too much excitement for a 10 year old!! LOL!!
