I have been SPOTLIGHTED on Simply Sassy!

OMG okay so I have been spotlighted on the Simply Sassy Blog. I will be completely honest and say that I never thought this would happen to me. SO when Autumn asked me if  I would do it; I was so super excited even my husband thought I had gone crazy! You can check out the post HERE...Oh how fun!

Here is what I have made. It is not so much a card even though the base is a tri-fold shutter card. I intend to keep this creation forever as it has very special meaning to me.
I have used three images from Simply Sassy to represent my sisters and I: Strike a Pose, Lost in Music, and Pillow Talk. All colored with copics. This Sassy reminds me of my oldest sister; always so stylish and looking HOT!
This Sassy reminds me of my other sister just a little older than me; always lost in her music.
I have used this last Sassy to represent me; a bit bratty for being the baby and a total sleepy head!
I have added a bunch of flowers, ribbon, and embellishments all over the place plus tiny tangs from PTI to display each of our names. At the end very pleased with the results. I have even added a crochet flower that my Grandma Paula made for me. Making this project that much more special!
I would like to thank Simply Sassy for having me as their spotlight guest. It has been a total pleasure and I am truly honored!
