Once Upon a Time......

Good Morning!
There is another gorgeous sketch over at the
Sweet Stop this week!!  I have had this Tilda
for awhile and totally forgot about her!!
(I know I know!! LOL)
I am also entering this into the Just Magnolia
challenge as it is "Anything Goes."

I know this list sounds like a broken record but
here it is: Papers are Websters Pages, flowers
are Prima, Pearls are KaiserCraft, the punch
is from Martha Stewart and my images
were colored with Distress inks, twinkling h20's
and some stickles.  The circle sentiment is
from Catslife press and the Dreams is a rub-on.
Of course I have used my distress inks again! LOL

Funny Story ~ My oldest was talking to my middle
daughter and she told her "Good thing we are white
or mommy would paint us!! LOL  Good reason
though ~ this week I have repainted an old stool
and a bench ~ you guessed it white!! I just
can't shake it!! LOL

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by and make
sure to stop by and see the DT's creations! I love
seeing the big difference you get from the same sketch!!
Have a lovely week-end!
