A Special Day For Me !!!!!!

Hello everyone!! (updated blogger is messing with me and the links today!! UHG!)

It's my birthday today and Elisabeth has made this digi with me in mind and even has named it after me for my birthday!!

So excited to share it with you!!!

I just love it! She is so cute and very detailed just like me!! LOL.. Yes, if you haven't noticed before I am a details person!! LOL. I love all animals and my very favorite thing is a cute little frog!! This little sweetie does look a lot as I did at about 4 or 5 years old. Elisabeth did a great job capturing a younger me with this digi!


I'm first on the blog hop this morning, so hopefully you have come right over from The Digi Bells Blog, if you haven't, why not hop over and get all the details for hopping along with us. You can also find out how you could win this new digi for yourself!

So now help me welcome this special digi into the Elisabeth Bell Digi Collection

"Li'l Janiel's Harvest"

Li'l Janiel (who suspiciously is also dressed very much like Li'l Red Riding Hood) is collecting acorns to help the Squirrel family during the winter months (Mister Squirrel is sitting atop her head keeping an eye on all the acorns coming in). And Mister Frog is keeping tally of all the acorns that are being collected, and stored, on his parchment of paper and peacock feathered quill while he's sitting on Li'l Janiel's shoulder! And of course, the song birds, forest friends of the Squirrel family and Mister Frog, are helping out with the acorn collecting hee hee. Such a bountiful harvest it will be this year with everyone helping!

Looks like a FUN, FALL, FAIRYTALE!!

My project today is a fun little box that I have altered. It has lots of texture on it.

I have colored my image with my copic markers.
Papers: 7 Gypies, Cosmo Cricket, Shabby Princess,Basic Grey (curio) Glitz, Bazzill cardstock.

Embellies: candy dots, snaps, paper flowers, gauze, buttons with bakers thread, leather,doily, trim, photo corners.
dies: round Spellbinders, Magnolia Swirl.

techniques: I have used Distressed inks for all edges of my project to make it look old and worn. Then I have use a file and sanded all of the edges and re-inked some of the edges. I have used stickles on the Magnolia swirls and the flowers. I have used Glimmer Mist on the doily.

I have used the sketch from STAMP WITH FUN for the top of my box.
a few other challenges that I have made my box to fit.

Basic Grey: Fairy tales and/or Nursery Rhymes
Our Creative Corner: Colour Challenge

Cooking It Up with Katie: Include some Coloring, try a little curling, add a Circle
Stampin 4 The Weekend: Colours of Autumn

Paper Sundaes: Fav colour combos
Totally Gorjuss: Ooh La La
Stampavie & More: Autumn

Anything Goes Challenge: Die cuts, punches or both



Now hop on over and see the fabulous creation that WENDY has to share with you. But remember to leave a comment on each blog thru the hop to better your chances to win the cute little digi.

I snagged this little cutie from someone..but don't remember who. :o(
But thought that it was perfect for all of you!
