Happy Saturday everyone! I've fallen in LOVE with these awesome stamps from Love Cynthia! She is an Artist who lives in France, and she creates adorable characters that are perfect for planner pages, cards, scrapbook layouts....pretty much anything and everything crafty!
She is currently running a contest for the month of October with various themes each week. At the end of the month she will pick 2 winners to receive 50 EUROS shop credits!! How awesome is that?! The theme for the first week is called "I'm A Happy Girl" and the goal is to pick one of her stamps that best represents you.
I love to travel and one of my favorite cities to go on adventures in is New York City! There is so much to see and do there, and of course, the food is AMAZING! When I was little and my dad was in the Army, we would get stationed in Germany a lot. New York is where we always flew out of on our travels overseas so we would always get there a couple days early and do some sightseeing before the plane ride.
I used the girl from the Make It Happen Stamp Set to best represent me in the first challenge of the month. I also used elements from the Don't Quit Your Daydream to created the Polaroid scene. I stamped the Statue of Liberty with Versamark Ink, rubbed green chalk over the image and cut her out. The rest of the scene was stamped and colored with Copics. I used blue chalk to make the sky.

I used some digital papers I found on Etsy called New York City Themed Paper and New York. The sentiments on the Polaroid frame are from 2 older Love Cynthia stamp sets.
