Just Us Girls #100 plus Blog Candy! ...Ciao!



Ciao bellas!  I'm so tickled your here!  This week the Just Us Girls crew celebrates the 100th challenge!  Yipes!  How fantistico!  To honor the distance we've come, we are taking it back old skool...to the very first sketch!  Snap in for a wonderful ride on the Just Us Girls REmix!  Remember this gem of a sketch????


Yep, she's back and ready for more action!  I recently received some stamps from darling Kim of Wilson Designs.  Among the stack was this so FUN set called Scoot Away with Me.  From the day Kim released this set, I have been jones-ing to recreate this real life scoot-scoot I saw in Como, Italy last year...


Can't you just picture me scooting around on this aqua baby in my designer stilettos???  OK maybe not but I do adore a cool Vespa...especially in Italy!  I guess, for now, I'll have to stick to stamps!


Mee-owww!  Isn't she the cutest little scooter rider??!  DAH-LING really! How do you keep your hair "helmet-head" free?!  Kim hit this right on the money...there are absolutely ladies dressed to the nines riding their scooters in Italy.  *love*


The sentiments font in the set is super cute too!  I love the retro feel the script has plus there is a houndstooth pattern stamp too. 

*candy alert*candy alert*candy alert*


The JUGs girl have put together some custom blog candy packages for the 100th sketch week!  Be sure and hop to each blog and comment for your chance to win.  For my candy package, I've put together some vintage faves....bookprint, music sheets, old ledger paper, monopoly money, pearl trim and some hand selected mother of pearl buttons!  I've also included 4+ yards of twine from the Twinery in fall colors and 4 wood mount stamps from American Crafts!  If you like the sound of that, please leave a comment that says "I want it!" (or any other form of "gimme" that suits you) and you are entered to win.  If you are a follower here at Paper Daydream, give yourself another chance with a second comment. 


Just had to share a closeup of those buttons.  YUM-o!

Check out the girls.....


PLUS the fabulous and wonderful Monique Hansen joins us this month as our guest designer!  Yay!

OK crafters, let's work this sketch OUT!  Can't wait!
