Boo Boo Hugs

Hey Everyone!  Our new Clear It Out challenge starts tomorrow.  Our sponsor this time is the amazingly talented MelJen's Designs.  The winner will receive 4 digital images of their choice.  You can pick up this cutie named "Little Girl Bear Hugs" at MelJen's Designs HERE.

 My poor little darling has a boo-boo (notice the bandaid on her leg).....but she doesn't look sad at all cuz she's hugging her sweet little teddie bear & giving him oodles of love. I've colored them both using my trustie Copics (listed below).  The background papers are another NitWits collection.  I just love their digital graphics.

I recently got a 'Scrabble' alpha rubber stamp set from Whimsy Stamps.  They were having a huge sale & this girl just can't pass up a good craft sale.  :)  I love this set!  It was such a good price!  It came with all 26 letters of the alphabet.  LOL  Imagine that!  That's 26 stamps for one low price. Well actually you get 2 with a heart & a blank so that's 28 stamps.  I just love a good deal.  I try not to pay full price for anything.........especially craft items.  Anywho..........just wanted to share with my friends.............back to the challenge..............

Our challenge at CIO this time is "Use an image of a Child or Children".  The Stash requirement is everyone's FAVorite "Anything Goes".........just tell us what you've used.  My stash item is the pretty flower I've layered.  Actually the pearl button on top is from my stash too.  I'm so glad that CIO helps me clear out that huge mountain of craft supplies I've hoarded bought.  LOL

I used this great sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
