Challenge # 34 Paper Piecing

Challenge # 34 at A Spoon Full of Sugar is paper piecing. Paper piecing is when you stamp an image, and then stamp it again on patterned paper, cut out parts of the image on the patterned paper and paste it on top of the other image. For this challenge, I paper pieced the dress, and all the bags.
I bought this stamp set over a year ago, and this is the first chance I've had to use it. Sometimes I think I own too many stamp sets!!
Stamps: Hanna stamps - But I need it clear stamp set.
Inks: Versafine black, SU basic black, SU creamy caramel
Papers: Georgia Pacific cs, Bazill cs, MME - Just Dreamy stack
Accessories: Brad, prima flower, lace from stash

Sorry I was away so long, last weekend me, my husband and my best friend, went to Watrous, SK - to the spa. If you would like to see exactly where we were, here is the link. It was absolutely awesome!! The water was so warm!! And I love that you float with no effort at all in the water! If you are close to the area...then I recommend that you check it out! The prices are reasonable, the food is amazing, and you can relax and let your troubles float away! The mineral water also has alot of healing properties!
Is anyone up to a trip to the spa?? My bags are still packed and waiting!!

Seriously now, head on over to A Spoonful of Sugar for our newest challenge. Also make sure you check out the design team cards....cause they are amazing! (Almost as amazing as Watrous...tee hee...just kidding)

Have a great day!
