Gotta Be In It, To Win It :)

Good afternoon all my crafty friends!  What a wonderful, busy week it has been here for our family.   We decided to go camping with all the girls for the first time!  What an adventure - and so much fun :)

While we were away, there has been a DT Call going on over at Tiddly Inks!  I have been biting at the bit to get inky and try out.  Thankfully, we came home in time so that I could create something and throw my hat into the ring.

Christy wanted us to use our very most favorite Tiddly Inks image on our creation for the call.  Well, that was a pretty tall order, since I'm totally in love with just about every image in her store ;).  I decided, however, to go with my favorite girl, Wryn ;)

I just love Wryn as  Teacher Helper!!!  Her glasses.....her stack of books.....*yum!* ...I mean, really, what is not to love about this cutie??  I brought her to life with  my Copics and distressed her with my Tim Holtz distress tool.  The fabby papers are the Hall Pass collection from We R Memory Keepers and they are just perfect for those notes to the teacher or even some cutie bookmarks!  After the image and papers were distressed, I inked everything in my Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.  I then found the perfect button in my stash and added some twine to finish it all off!

Working for Christy and with her amazing art would definitely be a dream come true!  I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed!

Lots of luck to all the creative ladies out there that applied!
