Grow your mind.

Hello Everyone,

I think spring has sprung here. Also the pollen. LOL It is all good though I have to say I was tired of winter this year. 

I am here today with a new challenge over at Mayzy's blog. The theme this time around is Grow. Wait till you see my fellow DTeam mates creations. WOW. Mayzy's has made a few changes to the challenge to make it easier and fair for everyone. Please make sure you check out the changes. Plus the prizes have gotten even better it that was possible. 

Just a hint Mayzy has some more new images coming out very soon. She has been working hard and bringing some more fun for us to color and create with . Did you know she has a suggestion "box". Make sure if you have something in mind put it in there. She loves it and I can tell you she does listen. 

Ok on to my card. 

This is High School Hailey. When I saw this image the first thing that popped into my head was Grow your Mind. I just remember that saying from way back. And then I thought of my little toothpick pencils. If you want to know how to make these my video I did for them will be at the bottom of the post. 

I have colored her with my Copics. She as well as the mat behind her is cut out using my Cameo. I created the verse in the Cameo software as well. 

The lined school paper is by Jillibean Soup and it is in there Sweet and Sour Soup pad. Not sure why it's call Sweet and Sour but what ever floats their boat. LOL

I hope you will join us for the challenge this week.I think it will be fun to see what everyone comes up with for the GROW theme.

Oh don't forget to check out what Mayzy posted on how to "age" her stamps. Very cool.
