a bee in her bonnet . . .

Are you familiar with that saying? We don't
really wear bonnets anymore, and I'm unsure of
it's origins, but suffice it to say, I'm pretty
sure I DON'T want a bee in my bonnet, thank you!

I recently signed up at Bella Creations, and one
of my imaginary friends and fellow Gingersnap
DT members (you may have seen her here
and there--hey, 2amscrapper!) is moderator of the
Oh-la-la group there. The image was supplied
for the April Bonnet challenge.

Besides the main collage image and text, there's black
Bazzill flourishes, netting, tulle, a bit of puncherella,
tissue paper, stamping in the background, distress ink,
ribbons, pearly pink microbeads, and glitter.

I also did a mini blog hop, finding all the required
project elements, over at the Creative Cutter
. (Nope, not telling--you have to go find out
for yourself! ;)

There are so many fun Easter and Spring challenges
right now--this little piece also fits in with all
these great challenges:

The Pink Elephant--Easter
Delicious Doodles (Easter and ribbons)
If the Shoe Fits . . . Scrap It!--Spring
Fun With Shapes and More
Res-Q-Challenge--tissue paper
Stamp Something--Sassy circle something
Stampin' for the weekend--Easter
The Shabby Tea Room--color challenge

So, if you're looking for a little inspiration
this weekend, there you go, right there!

Have fun!
