Sweet Pure Innocence

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Today is my day for meeting my grandsons' school bus. Helping with homework is something I really look forward to-believe it or not.
My grandsons are at an age where they are still impressed with Grandma's knowledge (lol). I help Aidin every week with his vocabulary and last week he asked me how I know the definitions for all these words without looking. So how good do you think that made me feel?

Now onto today's post. I am the color challenge hostess on Splitcoaststampers this week.

I chose the trio of rich razzleberry, island indigo and baja breeze. My add-on element is dry embossing.

 I decided to use the MFT pure innocence image “being cute is what I do” stamp. She fit so perfectly in my layout. The layout is the Mojomonday 212 sketch.

I paper pieced her clothes with rich razzleberry and gave here a baja breeze flower. The designer series paper is from the island indigo patterns.

I colored her hair & face with blender pens & close to cocoa, chocolate chip & blush blossom ink.

I used the Stampin-up dotted ribbon scallop border punch and Spellbinders labels 18 for a tag. I made all paper embellishments because this is also for the Splitcoaststampers "hope you can cling to challenges". I am making these cards to send to the Cancer Center in Houston Texas. Get more info here.

This challenge was titled "hope". We are to "h"ave "o"nly "p"aper "e"mbellishments on our card.

That's it for this post. So until next time.....God bless.

1.  Cupcake Craft blog has a denim and lace challenge.
2.  Karen's Doodles has an emboss it challenge.
3.   One stitch at a time has an emboss it challenge.
4.  The Outlawz have a "tag your it" challenge.
