Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

Hello! Welcome to this month's Papertrey Blog Hop! 





I'll make it short and sweet since there are tons of blogs to see. 


This month, we were challenged to use an inspiration picture. I LOVE inspiration pictures and love to see how others interpret things, so this should be so much fun. Here is the inspiration photo from Pinterest:



When I looked at this photo, I immediately thought of little best friends playing dress up with glittery things and poofy dresses and how little best friends grow into big best friends. I thought about how those friendships sometimes never end. You meet, and for the rest of your lives, the friendship is solid. So, here is what my brain came up with as a result of that thought process:



I just love using that MS glitter. I found that it is MUCH better when used with scortape and not liquid glue..lol. Much less messy! I also used the Papertrey Wonderful Words Additions set and die. To get the rainbow effect on the diecut, I just colored the paper with Copics and then diecut it from there - super simple.


Well, as usual I am gabbing. So go...go..check out the rest of the entries this month here on Nichole's blog.


Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great weekend.
