HH challenge #53

Well, only 2 days late, lol!! I swear the challenge for me is getting it done on time!!

As you may recall, the High Hopes challenge from Sunday was a recipe.....we were to use 3 flowers, 2 brads & a sentiment.




I used the adorable Holly the Winter Fairy, along with the Fairy Merry Christmas sentiment (remember you can now order High Hopes from 7 Kids College Fund.....if it's not listed in the store, be sure to email Tab & she will special order it with her next order!). She's colored with Prismas & gamsol.... & I added LOTS of sparkly glitter to her wings. The papers are SU's Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, & K&Company's Peppermint Twist. The RHR oval was embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake folder, & the green strip was punched with my Martha Stewart Icicle punch.





My pictures look funny. It was very overcast by the time I got around to taking the photos, so I used my (homemade....complete with a paper towel covering, lol) light box. Turned out better than the pics I took by the patio door.....but they still look off. I need to take a photography class JUST so I can learn how to photograph red!!

Thanks so much for being patient with me!! I hope you have a fabulous week....can you believe Thanksgiving is just over a week away???? Eeeeeek!!!! Time for my anxiety attack to begin!!!
