Lasting Memories and blog candy

  Stef from Glitterbabe's digis is sponsoring our blog challenge this week at Lasting Memories.  She let us pick out one of the digis to work with this week.  I used the Let's Dance Digital Image.  I first did my layout with this image and then a card.  I really love the image and plan to use it over and over again.  My layout is from Lisa's sketch over at Personal scrapper.  The kit I used is from the Febuary kit from Personal scrapper.  Go check them out, they have great monthly kits and a fun forums with challenges and online crops.  There is blog candy at the end of this post.  See the details there.  If you participate in our challenge this week, several of the design team members have blog candy to give away!

Here is the sketch

I also used the digi for this card.  I used the bliss paper from CTMH and small rhinestones and pearls.  I colored it in with chalk.
Next is my personal blog candy for valentines day.  You will need to do the challenge over at Lasting Memories in order to win.  Go check them out and leave a comment on my blog for your chance to win.  I will draw a winner at the end of the week.  Enjoy and have fun visiting the blogs!
