  So how do you like this new background!  My wonderful sister Rebecca did this for me.  Isn't she just fabulous!!!!  Pop over to her blog and give her some love for such an amazing job!
Well I hope someone tells the weather that Spring started on March 20.  It has been snowing all day here and I am so sick of it.  This was Spring Break for the kids and they have been cooped up for most of it because it is so cold outside.  Please someone send some warm weather up to Ohio.  I can't take anymore.
Now down to business

I wish to welcome you to another fortnightly challenge at 
 Our challenge is "For a Child".  Our sponsor is a new one I just love


A Random Fan
  So many adorable images!  The one I am using is called Doctor Autry.  Isn't she so sweet!  I've colored her with my Copic markers and added some Glossy Accents and my new Wink of Stella Brush.   The sketch I chose comes from Papertake Weekly.

  I've used papers from Bearly Mine, Bazzill and some generic.  The embossing folder is from Darice...I thought the letters would look nice with a child.  I've also added a butterfly from Inky Impressions, a button from my stash and some twine from Hemptique. 
I look forward to seeing you in the challenge this week and please head over to the Crafting When We Can challenge blog to check out all the other wonderful creations for your inspiration that our fabulous DT have made for you.
