Challenge #151 Lemonade For Sale at Kenny K'sKrafty Krew



The theme for this fortnight Challenge is:

Lemonade For Sale

with a Photo Inspiration








Here is my take on this, I chose Kenny Fun Faerie. I used Spectrum Noir pens on her. The background is a picture I found on the internet. I uploaded to power point and used the wordart for the month (April). I am in the process of making a Kenny K Kalendar with the images I have bought. So be on the lookout for more to come:) Hope you like it and TFL:))

Origami Box

A while back I posted a video of this box from Card-Making-Magic. Here is mine, it was actually a lot easier than it looked. This was another item for the fall swap. I thought this would fit the berries theme. The color reminded me of strawberries and cream.




Sorry I can not remember what all I used. It was left over items from my stash.

Beads for stick pins are from Jesse James Beads-Fools Gold, flowers from Petaloo-Citronelle, solid cardstock from Colorbok, pearls from Prima-peach, pumpkin bling from Recollections and pattern paper from DCWV Fall paper stack

I know I have not been posting much. But I promise I will be. I am currently in a Fall Alphabet swap due in Sept. So I will share pics soon. In the meantime I will be posting youtube videos I like and hope you will enjoy.
On another note, after being  out of school for 24 yrs, I have decided to go back to school. In August I will be attend Marion Technical College. I will be the first in my family to go and my parents are proud of me going back. Wish me luck with my new adventure to add to my life.
