Saturday Night Challenge & The Flat Belly Diet!

Hello Friends! It's been awhile...Busy days, busy days! filled with Corn Flakes, Fruit Smoothies, Lactaid Milk, Chicken, Green Beans, I could go on & on! So, I started the flat belly diet this week, 5 days in, I feel great and the kicker, I lost 6 pounds so far! Woohoo! This is just the jumpstart I needed. I was eating so horribly and feeling awful and in just 5 days, it's incredible at how much better I feel! I will keep you posted!
On to the crafty stuff! This week's Saturday Night Challenge was to make a card or layout using layers. I got a little carried away and made three!

This one is a Pink Petticoat digital image...too cute! The paper is WeRMemoryKeepers and I colored that cute little elephant with my Copic Markers.

For this next one, I started by cutting my scalloped card out with my Sizzix Big Shot, punched some layered edges with my Martha Stewart punch. The stamps are Studio G from the $1.00 section at Michael's, colored with my Copic Markers, of course! and distressed edges. Add the flowers and brad, and Voila!

And last, but not least is another adorable digital image by Victoria Case.
It doesn't really look like much in the way of layers, but all of the patterend paper pieces are layers cut from a patterned paper by Elsie her! Then there are also the layers behind the gamer boy image. I colored him in with my Copics markers.
Well, thanks for stopping by!
xx, Nora Anne
