It's a hard day for a mom when her child turns 16.  When my youngest turned 16 the countdown began for her last two years before college.  This time it's not my kid (thankfully).  I don't think I could take another countdown.  Two was enough.  

This is for my beautiful niece Kennedie!  She will be turning 16 in May.  I know I'm early on this but when I saw the images at The Stamping Chef, this one just sang out Kennedie.  She wears leggings all the time and boy does she have the attitude down pat.  The only difference is she has long hair.  Her hair is actually a beautiful red, however, she insists on coloring her hair and often has red roots. 

So let's get down to business:

Welcome to another fabulous challenge at


Our challenge this fortnight is "FOOD"

We are sponsored by (you guessed it) "The Stamping Chef"

This image is called "Attitude Avery".  I have colored her with Copic markers and added some Glossy Accents and Stickles.  Love the shiny!  I've done this card in all purples (though some of it looks a bit blue to me - it is all purple).  Purple is Kennedie's favorite color.  I've chosen a sketch from Papertake Weekly.  Since it's a free for all this time I chose sketch #66.


For the papers, I am happy to say it all came from my scraps bag.  It's so nice to be able to use that up.  I only know one of the papers is Bazzill.  The ribbon and both embossing folders are from Darice.  These are new embossing folders and I'm glad I got to use them together.  Pearls are Want 2 Scrap, button from Gartner Studios, the ink used for distressing is Stampin' Up Orchid Opulence and the charm is from Inky Impressions.  

I do hope you will join us this fortnight.  For some more inspiration, please visit my awesome team mates at CRAFTING WHEN WE CAN.  Please leave some love as we all love hearing from you.
