I was so happy to see this challenge this morning!! My son started school today and I needed something to do to keep me busy. I've been lucky enough to work at my sons school since towards the end of the year last year and I will continue to this year! But not one was sick today...lol! Thank you Emma for another fun challenge!
The challenge was to use Paper Doll Dress and "Frame it" theme and any project of your choice. I choose to do a 12x12 layout, so I can add it to my scrapbook. I used one of the Star Boarders(PDDU) and made it into a frame. The Paper Doll is from (PDDU) along with the star I used on the paper doll. The words "You Are A Star" are from Sesame Street. Oh ya, of course the picture is of my sweet, handsome son!
Don't forget to stop by Emma's blog and watch her video because she shows you more than one project with this cartridge. Also, her project is super, duper cute!

My first Peachy Keen Challenge! I look forward to the next one. The challenge is to follow this sketch and make it your own, either layout or card would be just fine.
This is what I came up with, I used a Peachy Keen stamp called "you are my sunshine" and my paper is papertreyink and DCW.
The lighting on my picture does not show how nice the colors are on the card. I tried to retake this picture several times and this was the best...sorry. I thank you for stopping by and I hope you like my card!
