Old Hollywood & KK Challenge 171

Hey All!

Just a thanks to those  who have been commenting on my posts, it is really appreciated! 

Ok - so had an amazing weekend so far! I weighed myself today and am down 66.6 pounds. YAY!!! I am so proud of myself!!

On Saturday I spent some time with Carmen, Carol, Marjorie, and Christine scrapbooking. We had a great morning/afternoon,  I even brought some pumpkin chili for everyone for lunch. SO GOOD!!!

Now for some work I did this past week. Kraftin' Kimmie's challenge this week is to make a card, scrapbook page or altered item with a favourite stamp.

So I choose a stamp I have been in LOVE with forever; and such an icon! Plus she was a "bigger" girl. GIRL POWER!!! I am slowly learning to accept myself as I am, not what is deemed to be acceptable and she inspires me to be the best I can be. So here she is MARILYN!!!!

For this card I used some left over Echo Park paper from the Be Mine line. I am loving the different shads of pink! So Girlie and fits so perfectly well with this card.

Here the close up of Marilyn herself.

I coloured her with copic markers:

Skin: E00, E11
Dress: C00, C1, C3
Hair: Y11, Y13
Eyes: E44
Lips: R21

Other Miscellaneous Supplies I used were Lace, Jewels, and American Crafts Glitter Tape.

Well off to get my stuff together for work tomorrow. 

Have a great night. Enjoy!
