Pink elephants on parade

Hi all,
I am so tired this week.  We had our first two dress rehearsals on Tuesday and Wednesday night and I didn't get home until 11.30 both times.  We have another dress rehearsal tonight and then the show starts on Friday.  I'm not sure how I'll cope with another week of this!
Thank you to everyone who took part in the CRAFT blog hop.  The winners are posted on the challenge blog now, so hop over to check if you are one of them.  This week, we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, Crimson Cloud and Bugaboo Stamps.  Our theme is 'easel cards' - quite an easy one for you all, I think.  I have used an wonderful Bugaboo image called elephant paisley silhouette and I have gone a bit pink.  I cute the shapes with my nesties, added some flowers and gems and used a large brad to keep the easel part up.  Please check out the projects by the rest of the fab DT.
See you soon.
