Beauty Queen!

I finally have had a chance to do some challenges...oh I know.........whine , whine, whine.....

Well, I am fitting them in between other important stuff - just like you all do everyday, believe me, I know!!
Taking time to MAKE time for ourselves - this is so important!!

So what about this cute little Bitzy Bugz!

I have had this stamp for awhile and dug it out when I saw the Dirty Dozen Fan Club Inspiration Challenge, which is to be inspired by something around your home!!

Everyday I am inspired by my big old bathtub and although I usually shower (is this more than you need to know??) the bath is my luxury - you know finding the time, wanting to clean the tub, finding the time, blah. blah. blah.

I also used
Taylor's Cupcake Challenge sketch this week, as I have never done one - I don't think........and it was great for this image!

Plus, today's Inspiration Challenge is from The Artfull Bras Project and I chose to be inspired by the bra on Page 2 called, "Look on the Bright Side".

I used Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo paper that I had left over from another project (that I don't have done!) and sanded up the edges of the blocks of paper with my sanding block. This paper works great with that technique!

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things set Essential Sentiments and really, what else would I have said?!! What a Beauty Queen!!

I used my Frosted Lace Stickles for the bath bubbles and some clear raindots for floating bubbles, with a couple of Hero Arts bling for Bitzy Bugz antennae.

I just may go and have a big ol' bubble bath right now......after hubby's massive laundry pile gets done ......I thought men only took underwear on trips........
