A Piece of SOG

The new challenge over at Some Odd Girl is to paper piece it up!!  I love doing this technique, but coloring with my Copics always wins.  So I thought this would be a fun one to play along with and challenge me to do something I don't normally do.

I've had this image from SOG for a little bit and haven't had a chance to play with her - her name is Garden Mae and she is one of my absolute faves.   I paper pieced her handkerchief and her top with some of the paper that is placed behind her feet.

Just lovin' this girl!!  And what garden doesn't have a white picket fence?  Well Mae's does!  Everything right down to the background papers have been distressed in Making Memories distress ink.  The flower by her feet are three (3) scalloped circles, crumpled and distressed, and put together with a pearl.  The beautiful sentiment is from TLC, and is part of the set, What Friends Are For, which you can find in the store by clicking here.

I would love to thank each and every one of you that has been praying and sending out good vibes throughout Hurricane Irene!  We weathered the nasty storm with some minor basement flooding and broken tree limbs, but we did not lose power or water!!!!  I am so grateful to God for keeping us safe and for each one of you -your prayers were definitely appreciated!!

Hoping that you all enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
