Happy Birthday Cassasha

Hello everyone.  Today I want to show you a project I made to audition for KennyK's Krafty Krew.  I love KennyK as I am sure all of you do as well.  When picking my image, I was thinking of my niece Cassasha.  She has the next birthday in our family.  Her birthday is just after Christmas and kind of gets lost in all the holiday plans.  I know I always post about my nieces (I have tons of them) but rarely talk about Cassasha.  Her name is really Cassandra but my other niece, Cortlynn, couldn't say Cassandra when she was little and she said Cassasha and it kind of stuck.  Cassandra is out of college now and is living all alone in North Carolina.  She is so far away.  We all miss her very much.

Now back to business.  The name of this image is Princess Pia.  I think it is adorable.  I colored Princess Pia with Copic markers, fussy cut it out and popped it up with pop dots.  I usually prefer SU dimensionals but I was too lazy to go upstairs to get a new pack.  I added glossy accents on the shoes, necklace, cat collar, lips and the tiara.  I also added glitter glue to the tiara.  I usually craft with a tiara on my head.  I know, I am a goofball.

The sentiment stamp is from SU.  The papers are all from my stash.  I used Copics to color some plain paper to match the colors in the image.  I used a Darice star embossing folder on the paper directly behind the image.  The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used a white gel pen to add some white dashes.  I had an issue with it.  It took a while to even get it flowing.  Please cross your fingers for me and head on over to KennyK to see the rest of the amazing entries.

One quick note before I go.  If you read my last post you know that little Layla (my great niece) was born early and was having some troubles.  She is out of the hospital and home at last.  Welcome home Layla.
