ColourQ117 - What's Black and White and...

Yep, I'm still kicking...just a little slower lately!! LOL!
The holidays have worn me out and I relaxed, took a deep breathe and feel asleep for a moment.
Do you ever do all day long on speed 10 and then when you finally get a chance to have a seat, you fall asleep...I do that ALL THE TIME!!  Well, that is exactly what I've done...I sat for a moment (after working fo r2 solid, hard weeks straight on Christmas Orders...I'll have to do a post soon and show you what I made this year) and fell "asleep" for a week!! Hee hee!!

Break over...Back to work!!

I have my Colour Q Challenges DT Page for you today!
I know I'm a few days behind, but Arielle understands me and offered me Grace! Whew!

Our fun color scheme this week is:

My little model is my daughter, Ella...she was the flower girl in a friends wedding this past May!

I LOVE this's in my Top 5 CQC Color Schemes!

Hope you find a chance to join us this week!

Shery K Designs - Claira Beth

Hello friends!

Well, you all know that I have recently fallen in LoVe with Scrapbooking Digitally!
Yep, you've seen me post about My Memories Software and how to use my discount code.

Now, that I am feeling better about finding my way around the MMS Software...I decided to 
venture out and look for some digital paper to add to my budding collection!
I found Shery of Shery K Designs and her papers stole my heart!
They have my name written all over them and her prices are unbeatable.
Oh, and not only can you use the papers on digital projects like Scrapping, you can 
also print the papers with your printer and then make cards and such with them!! Cool, huh?!?!

Here is my page featuring Sweet Claira Beth ( my adorable great-niece):

I used Shery's Paper Pack:

Trust have to go and look at Shery's shop...I am willing to bet you will 
not find a single paper pack you aren't wanting to add to your paper collection!!

and this week's sketch was perfect!!

Now, I just have to tell you about the new digital paper shop I ran across.

The shop is called
Shery is the owner and artist.
She is super nice, very sweet and so talented!!
I just love her style, her color combos and her products!
This is the paper pack I used for my page above:

The Pink Elephant- TPE128

       This week's challenge at TPE will last for 2 weeks
and it's the last challenge of the year.
The theme is
Snowflakes and Sparkle

I created a candle!
It's the first time I have tried this technique.
I've seen it many times over the year, but never tried it friend, Susan Miller  did one recently after following Lydia Bancroft's awesome tutorial, so Hannah and had a little candle making party!

I used Hannah's new Bug & Roo image:
I think she is just the cutest!!

Today, is Hannah's 15th birthday.
It is hard to believe that my sweet, lil' red-headed baby girl
is taller than me and fifteen years old.
I am in awe of her kind & compassionate spirit.
She inspires me daily!
I love you Hannah Bug!

I hope you all find time over the next 2 weeks to stop by TPE and share your creations with us and have a peek and what the other TPE girls have created to inspire you!!
Thank you for another amazing and fun year at The Pink Elephany Challenge Blog.
You all ROCK!!!
