CropStop Challenge #83: Go Fly a Kite!

Happy Thursday y'all! Can you believe it's already August?? Man, the summer went by really fast!! I don't even feel like we had a chance to do much this summer. Lately, we've been trying to squeeze in as many play dates as we can for our little guy. It's really bittersweet! He has some really amazing friends and we've gotten so much closer to them over the last few weeks, which makes leaving even harder. The packers come in less than a week and we'll soon be in Texas. School starts there on August 27th so at least we have a little time to get settled in.

Did you see that CropStop is having a Creative Team Call?? If you want to be part of an amazing team with some wonderful ladies then please, please apply! I would love to see some of you working along side of me. It'll be fun!! :)

This week at CropStop our challenge is:

GO FLY A KITE!
(use a kite on your project)

I found this gorgeous Saturated Canary image called "Windy Day" and knew she was perfect for this challenge. I love her beautiful, flowing hair! She took me forever to color with all the layers and detail, but I just love how she turned out! I printed her on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics and Stardust Stickles. I made the sky/grass background using Chalk. I also added some Sweet Pea Flower Soft to the grass area.

Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, Chalk
Eyes: E39, E35
Lips: R22
Flower: RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, G02, G09, Stickles
DRESS:
Dots: RV21, RV04, YR68, G02, B01, Stickles
Pink: RV06, RV04, RV02, Stickles
Green: G00, G02, G05, G07
Orange: YR02, YR68, Stickles
Blue: B00, B01, B02, B04
Scarf: G00, G02, G05, G07
Shoes: RV02, RV04, RV06
KITE:
RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09, E35, G05, G02, G00
Dots: RV21, RV04, YR68, G02, B01, Stickles

The textured pink cardstock is from Core'dinations, and the gorgeous dps came from a new paper pad I just recently purchased called DCWV "The Carnival Stack". I used a Martha Stewart Border Punch on the pink cardstock behind the center panel.

The corner die is from Whimsy Stamps and the embossed butterflies are from a Stampin' Up Emboss & Cut Die. My sentiment is from La-La Land Crafts. The flowers are WOC and Recollections and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
