The Pink Elephant Challenge #13

Hey everyone!! I just LOVE Mondays....why???? Because that means that we have a brand new challenge over at The Pink Elephant! This week is a recipe challenge and we are asking you to use circles and scallops on your project. This one was so super easy for me because I love circles and scallops.
I hope you all don't mind that I did two samples this week. First, I wanted to make a stationary set.

I asked my friend Lori Boyd if she minded me printing off the ADORABLE image she drew of me and she said I could!! YIPPEE!!! I know you will all agree with me that Lori needs to get busy making her drawings into stamps or digi stamps!!!! I colored my little 'me' with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. She screamed for a purse, so I drew that, cut it out and attached the main purse with a pop dot, but glued the handles directly so they wouldn't be floating above her hand. Not really much need for instructions. This is pretty straightforward. I also covered a pen and large bulldog clip to coordinate with the journal.
Materials: PAPER Colormates-Heritage Black/White, Cascata-Blue (WorldWin Papers) STAMPS Friendship Blooms (Stampin' Up!), Alphabet (Studio G) INK Versafine-Onyx Black, Versamagic-blue (Tsukineko) OTHER Prismacolor Pencils/Gamsol, Nestabilities-Circle, Scalloped Circle (Spellbinders), Chocolate 4x8 alphabet (Quickutz), Threading Water Punch (Fiskars), Ribbon, Foam tape, Notebook, CropADile, Bulldog clip, pen

Okay, now remember how I told you that I love scallops and circles? Well, not as much as I love Lori's drawings. After doing the stationary set, I wanted to make a magnet out of circles and scallops. So, I called Lori and asked if I could use one of her drawings of her too and she said YES!!

I was so excited to put both of our images on the magnet. I computer generated the sentiment on the main circle. Printed it off and colored the girls with Prismas and Gamsol. I stamped the "you" and "me" and cut everything with Nesties. I assembled it, added a scalloped circle cut from chipboard to the back of the large circle for stability.
