Sneak Peek NO. 3

Hi everyone, hope you are having a great day!! Our weather is icky here, and said to be getting worse, so I am trying to hurry. Whatever storms that passed through OK and TX last night, are headed here, so we are braced for a big one. Actually I have to be honest, my DH and I are the most unprepared people in the world. I don't even know where the flashlight is, so after posting this, I am going on a hunt for it, and getting my closet ready in case we have a tornado warning!! I am a worry wort when it comes to the weather so I will probably be freaked out all day!!
Anyway, this is a sneak peek of one of the three new sets being released Friday at Paper Pretties. She is perfect for mother's day and so versatile and easy to color. This is just one of the many sentiments that comes with her, isn't she lovely!! She looks like the kind of Mom I want to be, totally together and happy!! I colored Lexi with my SU markers in Real Red and Pretty in Pink. Here hair is Creamy Carmel and Chocolate Chip. I colored her pearls and earrings with a red glitter pen and the tray was colored with a silver one. The SCS challenge for today was to use eyelets in a creative way, so I used them to create my background. I started with a piece of Loves Me DSP (retired) from SU and used my large eyelet whole punch to punch out holes in a 3-2-3-2-3 pattern going down the card. The eyelets I used are also retired SU and I alternated them in Real Red and Pretty in Pink. The ribbon, also retired(grrrr SU!!!), was tied in a big red bow. I cut out Lexi with the out of the box technique so here tray sticks out from the matting. I had a hard time picking which sentiment, but I really love this one so I went with it. I am sure some lucky Mommy will be receiving this this Mother's day, I just don't know who yet, maybe it will be you!! Don't forget to come tomorrow night to our Paper Pretties Pajama Party. It starts at 8est(7cst) and is sure to be a hoot!! We launched our new website yesterday, so you should go and look around, check out the gallery, and pop into the forum and say hi!! As always, have a great day, stay safe and dry, and thank you so much for stopping by!!
