Ooh, La La !! It's Challenge Time @ Kraftin' Kimmie !!!

Oooh La La!!!
I have some pretty
to share with all of you!!! :) :)
I'm a Guest Designer this month 
for Kraftin' Kimmie and I am going to 
play along with their new release which 
will be next week!!! O-M-Squeeeeeeeeee!!!
I was beyond gobsmacked when Kimmie asked
me to be a Krafty Guest back in November.  I had 
to pull my car over so I didn't get into an accident!!!

Here is the gorgeous and fab -- SOPHIA!!!  :) :) 
Do you know that I realized while coloring that I have 
never colored an adult before...?!!!?  How can that be?!?  
With the exception of Mary Poppins which was the first stamp 
that I colored clothing with copics, I can't think of another time that I 
actually colored an adult...?!?!?  I really liked giving her smoky eyes and 
glittery liner/false eyelashes!! So sexy!! She's ready for the confetti to drop!!! 

Speaking of confetti... (*hides face in shame) 
I recv'd some frantage for Christmas and decided 
to give it a go... I may have gone a wee bit overboard 
in true Nicole fashion.  I don't really do anything half way...
Nope, I just go full on and then, ya know... might have some 
regrets along the way.  Next time, I won't use quite so much!!! :)

Jenny is the Krafty Girl challenge hostess 
 for this week & here is her glam inspiration pic!! 
To play along, simply use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp 
and follow this image to some crafty inspiration of your 
own!!! I am sure you can think of lots of ideas for this one!! 

Here is the close up of the image w. all
of that frantage!!  I really wanted confetti...
Well... it looks like the Macy's Day Parade might 
have just exploded all around her...Whooops!!!  ;) ;) 
Ok, probably would be best if I didn't experiment during
release week next week, huh??!  I don't want to give Kimmie 
a cardiac arrest or wonder to herself... why, oh why did I ask this 
crazy girl?!!  LOL  I need to hide the crazy for a while longer, right??!
