DDC#19 - Noah's Ark 2x2 Challenge!

Hey all! It's time for a new challenge at Digi Darla's!! Before I get to that though - the winner from my blog hop comments is ..
GRISEL!!!!!! Yay Grisel!! Thank you so much for commenting, please email me and I'll send you your Digi Darla's Cherry image!!

So, this weeks challenge is "Noah's Ark - 2x2" so we teamed up with a fellow DT, you know, to go with the whole 2x2 challenge!! (Great idea Denise!!!) and I teamed up with fellow DT - Michele!! We chose "Dino Lunch" from the June new releases and omgosh, I had a blast colouring this little guy! I coloured with copics and since it was printed on glitter paper, it has a nice shine to it. I used a border punch and for my '2x2' I added 2 cute little lizards!! What do ya think??

I think he's adorable! You have GOT to check out the rest of the DT work and play along with us this week! It does NOT have to be animal theme, but we DO need to see 2 of something on your creation! That's it!! Cya at Digi Darla's!

LMCB #96 - "Dancing With Paws"

It's time for a new challenge at Lasting Memories!! This weeks challenge is "Dancing With Paws" - we want to see animals on your LO's this week. Super easy - Denise just came up with a cool title!! For my LO this week I went digital again and you can find this adorable kit right HERE

When Ashleigh was 3, we tried ballet - didn't make it all the way through though as I wasn't allowed in with her and she would get so upset it was just awful. So, 'dancing' and monkeys - I think this is pretty good for this weeks challenge! Not to mention, isn't she just too darn cute!!

Come on over to LM and join the fun this week! Show us your take on the challenge and chk back on Monday for some DT Mojo!! Cya there!!
