June 2017 CHNC Extra DT time!!

Howdy blogger friends!  I'm here this evening to share with you some CHNC Extra DT inspiration!
As per our challenge guidelines, we are to use a Bugaboo image, and this cutie-pie is called Ava Christmas - mistletoe fairy.    As well as using a Bugaboo image, I also used the current Bugaboo sketch #510:
I realize now that I neglected the ribbon-looking element at the top of the sketch, but hopefully it'll still be acceptable!  The image and designer paper were just sitting on my desk , so I pulled the other elements together to complete the sketch.  I used a combination of alcohol markers to color my image, and afterwards, I added some Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen to all the green parts.  The sentiment comes from the Lawn Fawn "Deck The Halls" set, and was stamped with my new Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink pad!  Unfortunately, that is the only time I have had to even use one of these pads, but hopefully that will soon change!
As this post will be scheduled, you may be reading this as my older daughter, Laurena, is graduating from high school!  I can NOT believe that the time has come for this to happen already.  I always knew this day would come, but I never imagined it would happen so fast!  Next year around this time, my younger daughter will also graduate high school...then what will I do??!!  I'll be fine...I think.
Anyhow, I will add this to some challenges once the post is live and as time allows.  For now, it's time to hit the hay!  4am comes early around these parts!  Don't forget to join us with your creations, for you could be the randomly picked winner!  Thanks for stopping by!
