MO'S DP2 - Challenge #45 - Thank Heaven for Little Girls

 It's a rainy Sunday here in NY, so what better way to spend my time than to do some crafting....  Well I hate to tell you, rain or no rain, I've been coloring and creating all week.  Fully enjoying my little summer break before School starts up again in two weeks. 

I have been DYING to use this adorable little "Blueberry girl" from Mo's  and this weeks DP2 Challenge, just so happens to be "Thank Heaven for Little Girls"  It fits - It fits... and I couldn't wait to get started!!!

This is what I came up with:

Is she stinkin adorable or what????

Now I have a little secret to tell you!  I didn't use a single piece of designer paper on this card!  That blueberry paper is so cool, right?  You are never going to believe how I made it!

A couple of weeks ago while I was on the phone I was doodling on an envelope.  Go ahead and admit it, you probably all doodle on something don't you?  LOL  Well I was drawing circles, inside of circles, and putting little dots next to them, for whatever reason, one section of my circles kind of looked a little bit like a blueberry.  So I drew it again and added 2 little leaves, and Ta-ha... my blueberry was born.  I had to run with it, as soon as I was off the phone I scanned it, colored it digitally, and then created my very own Blueberry paper.  And I knew JUST THE IMAGE THAT I WAS GOING TO USE WITH IT!!!  Look... .there she is!
The plaid paper behind the blueberry paper, is actually just lines drawn with some Stampin up' markers....  So there you have my Totally Handmade designer papers.... I guess that makes ME the designer... LOL

Okay, so enough of my rambling, I have other things to work on, so I had better get going.....  Hopefully I will have another post for you in a little while. 
Wishing you all a Very Happy Sunday!
