ETA: There you go! I found all the links but 1...Pam...if you're out there, please link it up in the comments so I'll know where to find you!!

So today I thought I'd show you the projects I sent in with my application.

This card uses the Coffee Friends stamp, which I watercolored with my waterbrush and reinkers. The sentiment is from A Muse.

I loved this boy image (called Boy Footie) for a card for my oldest son. He's colored with Copic Markers, and I used a Sketch for You to Try from a couple of weeks ago as the layout. Loved the Verve stars & sentiment with this cutie.

My favorite for last, this is a 5x7 journal that I made last weekend with my Bind It All. It took forever, but it was totally worth it. It started out to be a diet journal for myself, but after I finished, I decided to give it to Julianna for her birthday. I'm so glad I did, cause she loved it.

Here's a detail shot of the image (which I can't find to link! Sorry!)
I colored the image with Copic markers, and added Liquid Applique to the cake slice, cake, and cupcakes. There's Diamond Glaze on the creme layer of the cake, on the plate & platter, and on the cherries. Then I added some shimmer with my Copic Spica Glitter Pen to Elzy's dress and spoon. It was so fun to do!

The rest of the journal was pretty easy, just adding layers of Imaginisce paper, cardstock, and the Dear Diary letters from my Cuttlebug Red Tag Alpha. Oh, and LOTS of ribbon!

I hope you guys like my projects! I'm excited to get to work on some new Elzy stuff. Thanks for sharing my excitement. Have a fabulous rest of your weekend!
