KKS Challenge

Welcome to this weeks Kraftin Kimmie's Challenge...can you guess what the challenge is??...
I'll give you a's a colour. Yup you 're right...Primarily purple.

It actually was a challenge for me because out of the oodles and oodles of paper I have...purple is not a colour I use a lot. But I did come across this stuff, I remember a friend giving it to me. I think it's from The Angel company. I decided to use Rapunzel, have you seen any previews for the new movie "Tangled"? It comes out next month, My girls and I can't wait to go see it. Anyway..little side bar, lol. I Kept my design  fairly simple I wanted to show off the pretty paper so I used my wrought iron corner punch to give it an  elegant frame. Layered a few flowers and added a brad from the $ store and some "All Dressed Up" ribbon from DCWV.
I cut her out...carefully, not to trim off any of those precious locks of hair and added a bit of tiny rhinestones to her gown and tiara. Isn't she pretty, hee hee.
So lets see what the other Krafty Girls created this week, I'm always in aw of their uber craftiness.

Have a fantastic weekend, and a Happy Halloween!! Hopefully the weather is good for us with little ones trick or treating...fingers crossed.

KKS Sketch Challenge # 51

Yeah it's finally the weekend and I don't need to go anywhere. I've been looking forward to this weekend just to hang out around home, no plans. Maybe some time in my craft room.

Here's what I came up with this week's Kraftin Kimmie sketch challenge. The paper is from a DCWV paper pack that my friend gave me some of. I used my Martha Stewart punch to create the cobweb, and pulled out my old decorate edge scissors (we all have em)  to frame Miss Perfect Poison. I think she's one of my all time faves. The sentiment is from the  KK Sassy Sentiments. and is perfect for her.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Krafty girls to see what they created this week.

Have a great weekend.
