I love taking photos!

I was invited to be the Guest Design Team member today on Delightful Challenges. The challenge this week at Delightful Challenges is ANYTHING GOES. Did I luck out or what?!  I chose this image named Say Cheese Polly by Digital Delights.

I used two different kinds of washi tape, the camera film and the cameras, in the corner. The round jewels in the corners of the image are by Queen & Co. The Around the Page punch is by Martha Stewart. The Eiffel tower is a die cut by Memory Box and I used assorted round punches by Marvy for my homemade sentiment. I made my sentiment with a bunch of travel stamps that I stamped in grayand then stamped the word "travel" in dark turquoise and then colored the words in with my pen.

Here's a close-up of this adorable image!

I colored Polly with Copics and used my Copics pens of the same colors and 'dotted' around Polly. Although you can't see it, I used my new Clear Wink of Stella pen and it's left a metallic look on the 'silver' part of the camera.

I'd like to say thank you to Leslie Rahye and the Design Team at Delightful Challenges for the opportunity to be their Guest for this challenge!  Please stop by the Digital Delights Blog and see the great inspiration made by the Team and I hope you'll join in the ANYTHING GOES challenge.

  1. Fabulous Polly with her camera on vacation to capture all those special "moments"!! Her camera has a real look to it the way you've colored it and it's absolutely fabulous that you found washi tape to match - both the camera AND film - can't get any better than that! I love her red hair and the addition of the Eiffel tower - not to mention the cute background papers -- just perfection !!
