Piper and her Prince -

From the Desk of Piper Schlatter

Happy Friday everyone!!!!!!,

I am so excited to be sharing my Blog Hop image with you for this month although this New Release Blog hop is sort of Bitter Sweet for me as it will be my last New Release Blog Hop as a Full Fledged DT member for The Character Cafe!!!! 

This is my 9th Blog Hop with them and I love this team to death but with the Baby coming and my decreased energy I feel that I need to start decreasing my work load on some things so I will not be renewing my Contract this time and it makes me sad because I adore The Character Cafe and Kendra and Kelly the owners!!!!  I hope that maybe they will have me back as a Guest Designer some though I would miss it too much if not!!!

However,  on a good note I still get to design for the whole month of March on Friday's with my Feature Friday TCC posts and today I get to showcase the best image ever!!!!!  (Well I am partial because Kendra and Kelly drew this image for my Piper Girl!!!!)

So this is how this months Hop is going to work!!!!

The Random Winner of the comments on left on the TCC Blog will get the entire March Release & be asked to be Guest Designer for any or all the Feature Fridays this month.

 We added Mr. Linky on the TCC blog, so that anyone who creates something using a TCC image can enter for a chance to win $10 gift certificate to the store and they have a chance to be Guest Designer for any or all the Feature Fridays this month.

 We're having a freebie image along the hop somewhere have fun hopping and then you will find it, and everyone can get this one!!!
Each DT girl gets to pick a random winner from those that comment on our Blog Hop post to win the image we created with next Friday we will announce all of the winners!!!

If you are doing the Hop you should be arriving on my Blog from my talented DT Sister Fink!!!

Now for my Project I decieded to take this gorgeous image Piper and Prince and make a Stationary Set for Piper my just turned this week 8 year old Piper Elizabeth Schlatter. 

In my pictures first you can see what the Stationary Book looked like before and after each stage until I was done!!!! 

In the first picture I took SU! Card Stock in Pixie Pink and scored it and wrapped the book in it.  I then took my labels 4 Nesties and I created a nested raised matte for Piper and Prince and I colored up the image with Copics cut her out by hand and put her on the front of the
New From the Desk of Piper Stationary set.  The Nested layers and the Sentiment are on SU! Green Galore, Pink Passion, and Gable Green Cardstocks.

Now for the side panel I added another of the Bigger Piper and Prince images and I nested it with less layers but still had some fun nested layers on this image.

For the entire inside I printed out several smaller Piper and Prince images and I cut them out with Nesties shapes labels 4 again colored them with Copics and traced around the edge of the Nestie die cut and added them popped up on the 3 Parts of the Stationary set.

Now if you want to know what colors I used to color up Piper and Prince here you go.
Skin: R00, E00, E93, RV21
Hair: E50, E51, E53
Dress: RV000, RV00, RV02, RV06, YG00, YG03, YG09
Frog: YG03, YG09, B00, B05

The image on the right is one of the 3 smaller images I used on my creation but it is not blurry in real life just because I cropped the picture down so small it distorts it.

Well now that you are done here on my blog to continue the New Release Blog Hop, it is time to head out to the Mega Mega talented Piali I can only guess she has somthing out of this world cool for you to feast your eyes on!!!!

Have fun along the Hop I know I am going to and don't forget to comment on each blog and the Store Blog at the end to have 13 chances to win images and prizes, and Freebies!!!
