Hi all! Well I am back again with my second post of the day cause the Whimsie Doodles April Challenge starts right Now! Yay! 8-) This month's challenge is to CHOOSE YOUR OWN CHALLENGE - there are 3 choices...
A: Create a card using the Spotlight Technique
                                                B: CASE this card from Melyssa:
                                              C: Use an office supply AND lined paper on your project.
There will be 2 winners for the challenge! One (1) lucky winner will be drawn at random to win a FREE Whimsie Doodles image, of their choice, from the latest release  And the second winner will join the Whimsie Doodle team as a Guest Artist in June 2012!!  Complete Details can be found on the Whimsie Doodles blog!  
I decided to go with C. To use an office supply and lined paper! 8-) I printed out my Darling Whimsie Doodles Gator and Friends image onto Flourishes Classic White and colored these little Cuties up with my trusty Copics. I cut them out with the help of my Classic Circles Large and Small and popped them up with foam tape. All my mats and BG pieces were created with various dp's from Echo Parks This and That Charming collection which included a Great lined paper design as well. To finish it all up I added an MFT die-namic border and  my Office Supply by creating my own fun Button & twine paper clip. I just used a regular old paperclip and attached a cute little button all tied up with some Yummy Bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds. The sketch is Deconstructed Sketch #42. I just Love Miss Jen's Awesome Sketches! 8-)

Sure hope you can play along! I can't wait to see which challenge you choose! And don't forget to stop by the Whimsie Doodles Blog to take a peak at the Adorable creations the Doodlecious Divas have whipped up for your inspiration! 8-)
