CES Challenge 56...Totally Gorgeous - Pretty Girls

Morning my lovelies…we are still basking in sunshine here in the UK and it’s a wonderful and welcome start to the month of October…it’s really hard to think of Halloween in 4 weeks…at this rate the trick or treater’s will be out in force in their swimming cozzies!

When I first saw this week’s challenge theme for CES I kept singing over and over in my head…'Here Come The Girls'…hence my image and sentiment choice! I’ve actually merged together 3 different ‘Beau’ digi images from the Digi Stamp Boutique and I had great fun colouring them to coordinate with these stunning Echo Park design papers!

So, this weeks theme as chosen by Shell is TOTALLY GORGEOUS (PRETTY GIRLS) and the uber talented DT girlies have really smashed this challenge with their fantastic creations…pop over to CES for to see some impressive and beautiful designs!

This weeks prize is this gorgeous Whiff of Joy rubber stamp! Emma currently has a 20% sale on so don’t forget to drop by the store and pick up some lush goodies!
