Hello and Thanks to everyone participating in the Hop!!  We had a resignation from our team and I have had to jump in and fill that spot in the hop.  So, if you think you have seen this project before, you have.  I did not have time to make a new card,  and our new DT member is not on board yet, so I hope I can be forgiven for not having a new project here!    My Mystery letter is "J". 

The Hop - How to Play
Follow the path to each DT member's blog. Make sure you leave a comment on each and that you FIND the MYSTERY LETTER. Hint: The Mystery Letter is the basis of each project. It could be the color, the shape, (i.e. If the letter assigned is "B", then the DT may have been told to use "Brads or Beads" in the design. After you complete the hop, return to JDE and leave a comment that includes the MYSTERY WORDS. Each DT member will have a random drawing and award a prize to some lucky visitor to their blog, and, we will have A GRAND PRIZE drawing  for those who collect all the letters and correctly Identify the Mystery Words. Here's another Hint: "Like Mary Mary drop the M Mo ary and that's the only rule that is contrary!"
Grand Prize - Ten (10) Copic Sketch Markers
Custom Digi from Robert Jackson
$15.00 Oozak Gift Certificate
Consolation prizes (3) - Gift Certificate for A Custom Digi by Robert Jackson

We have a wonderful challenge over at Stamp-N-Doodle.  I am posting late, but you still have time to enter your project.  The Theme is use Bold,Bright Colors.  I had already colored this image, so I added the yellow base panel and added yellow to her bow and wrist corsage (which were originally a different color).  I embossed the silver panel with a cuttlebug embossing folder and I added a few prima roses. The skirt of this dress was colored by using a glaze made with silver liquid pearls and Hampton Arts crystal glitter.

I think this image appealed to me because it speaks to a time, so very long ago, when girls actually did dress like this for the prom.  I wish young people still had something to look forward to after age Seventeen!
