It's a Girl Thing

Girls just want to have fun.  Now that's the fun theme at Pile It On this week and we're sponsored by the Paper Shelter.   Well, using one of their images is my idea of fun.  Most of the time playing with paper is fun for me and then a challenge like this comes along add a great image and I'm in heaven.  Now as you know the idea at Pile It On is to use at least one more challenge, and try to add more.  This week there were a few "girly" challenges out there so it was more fun trying to combine them.  Geez, how hard is it to add bling, and lace and flowers?  I think you'll find playing along with us very easy this week.
