Wide Awake!

Hello, Cardies!  Well, the long summer break at Guylou's is over and the team is back in full force!  I was delighted that Guylou found my work interesting enough to ask me to continue my tenure with her team.  I am so happy to be able to continue on a team with so many talented artists.

Guylou spent her time away from "blogging" changing her residence, vacationing, and creating some really exciting new images, including the one used in my project.  I called this wide awake, because that is what my daughter would always say when she fell asleep studying.  I would say, "Stace, honey, you need to go to bed.  You were asleep."  She would always respond: "I was wide awake, Momma! I'll never get this done if you keep waking me up to tell me I'm asleep."  Today she is the Corporate Controller and Vice President of Finance and Accounting for the 2nd largest Asset Management Company in the US!  So, maybe sleep learning really works! (LOL).

Hop over to Guylous and check out what my teammates have created for this challenge.  Oh, yeah, the challenge.  The challenge is - "An ABC Primer".   Your design should include.  Apple Red, Bling, and Charms!  What a fun challenge!  I may have to steal it for Jackson's Digital Expressions.  Seriously!!!
