High Hopes Challenge 31

Blessings to you on this Sunday morning! Today is the start of the high hopes weekly challenge which is brought to us by the talented guest diva Karen this week. The challenge is to doodle. I have to admit that before the other day I never doodled on anything besides adding white dots to scallops if that counts. I think I actually may like it too and perhaps do it once in awhile.

I colored the image with copics and then doodled around it to create a frame. When picking my copic colors for today I decided to make Zoe blonde because that is the copic creations challenge this week. I just found this blog and it is great because I use copics frequently so I plan on checking it out again. I picked YR31 because I saw it on Marianne Walker's blog and I never tried it before so I thought why not? My layout this week is from Friday sketchers which I just found last week- cool sketch again. The blue textured paper is a sneak peek at some of the soon to be released papers from Paper Temptress. They are really nice and come in quite a few different colors.

Here is a close up and view of the inside for you:

stamps- high hopes Zoe, Sweet N Sassy stamps Easter lily set (inside)
CS- blue textured, pop tones red hot and ultrasmooth white from Paper Temptress, SU dp
accessories- stitched grosgrain-PTI, primas, buttons, ornare piercing template (inside)
copics- B32, B34, B37, E000, E00, R20, R46, R39, YR21, E31, E33, E37, E29, W1, W3, W5

Stop by the high hopes blog today for the challenge details, which includes a prize, and more great inspiration from the divas.

Have a terrific day!
