Hello and hope you all had a great weekend!!  As usual, I have been busy and this time of year means school supply shopping, cleaning out backpacks, etc. for the start of the new school year which begins next week.  I always love and hate this time of year because I always have mixed emotions about the kids going back to school - in many ways I am relieved because I will finally have some "me" time but it also makes me sad a bit because I get to spend a lot of time with the kids in the summer, and we have had a very fun summer this year.

Speaking of summer break, WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE has had a little break for the DT the past 2 weeks, but we are back today and our NEW CHALLENGE is ANYTHING GOES, so get yourself on over to WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE and join us.  You have until 12noon EST on Sunday, August 21 and as long as your creation is NEW (no backlinking please), you can join us!!

While you are permitted to use any images you like to join our challenge, we'd sure LOVE to see a WHOOPSI DAISY image!  WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP is having a great BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE SALE for 2 weeks only, so go on over and pick up those sheets you've always wanted - 8 images for the price of 4 - WOW!!  Also, Linnie has a NEW FREEBIE for you at WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP so make sure you go and pick it up.

I have chosen this beautiful image from Sheet #32 and I decided I wanted her to be very elegant, so I used all solid colors of CS from Bazzill, American Crafts, SU and TAC.  Flowers are K and Co.  Cuttlebug folders used for embossing, sentiment from SU and cut out with Nestie.  All rectangles cut with Nesties as well.  WHOOPSI DAISY image colored with Copics and Atyou Spicas.  Hope you like and will come play along.
