Top Tip Tuesday Challenge

Today is my first Top Tip Tuesday post! Be sure to head over to the TTT Challenge blog where you can join in our "Open Challenge" for this week - we are showcasing images from two sponsors today!
I chose Quill and Paper from Robyn's Fetish for my image.
Since I am still one-handed, I decided to keep my digital image uncolored and highlight it with Tim Holtz's beautiful designer paper using Mojo Monday Sketch 194 from last week. The hardest part was keeping those pearls in the right place. They kept wanting to stick together while I was trying to get them adhered. I just keep counting the days for two hands! :)

Thanks for taking a look! I have some fun news later this week that I am excited about! Stay tuned~!

And if you are looking for summer sunscreen or bug spray that really works, I hope you will check out my Avon website (right sidebar). Just click on the logo and it takes you right there! Free shipping on a $30 order~
