Dilly Beans Friendship Challenge

Happy Friday!  I'm kinda excited to be going to the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton today but I'm gonna try and not overdo it.  I still have stuff in bags from LAST YEAR that I'd forgotten I bought...OOOPS!  Everything always seems to look fabulously exciting when there's so much stuff, all in one place. Don'tcha think?

Before I go, however, I'd like to share the new Dilly Beans Challenge which is "Friendship".  I can't believe I haven't used the adorable #482 Turtle Stack before.  Aren't they the cutest?  To me they represent what friendship is all about.  Sure, there's  nothing better when you haven't a care in the world, but when the going gets tough, it's your very best friends that pull you though.

I had a ball coloring them up in beautiful Spring colors  (several times) and fussy cutting and layering them up for dimension.  All the yummy DP's were from the DCCWV Flower Shower Stack.  I especially love the quilt blocks behind.  Didn't want to hide them so I decided to do an easel card and put the computer generated sentiment on the base.  My DT sisters, whom I consider fabulous friends, have done especially beautiful work this week so be sure and visit and leave them some love.  Now it's ready, set, SHOP!  TTYL

I'm also entering this in the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge where the Twist this week is 3D, the AI Check us Out Challenge using Gingham, Check or Plaid and Use Your Stuff Four Legged Friends (The "stuff" are the brads on the sentiment. I have a whole drawer full of 'em that I seldom use.  Hopefully I can resist the urge to add to them at the Expo. LOL  You think they're so cute and cheap until they check you out.  $50 on BRADS?  Are you KIDDING me?).
